PostSubject: my BB6 Prelude (pic heavy)   Thu 12 Aug 2010, 9:01 am

here is my Prelude, its a 1997 BB6 SiR jap import. its the 2WS lightweight model so no sunroof, no cruise control, no ABS etc Surprised

its got a few mods which include -

uber rare jdm bonnet spoiler
high level rear spoiler
full motegi lip kit and alloys
cobra sports stainless cat back exhaust
lowered with Tein springs on standard shocks
pipercross viper induction kit
ngk uprated ignition leads and spark plugs
spoon reservoir tank covers
jdm plate tilter
full black leather interior
painted red calipers
metal Prelude kick plates

anyway, here are the pics from when i first got it.

it had a jdm front lip







it came with a set of 18" inovit stvi's

full red SiR interior and standard kick plates





it had a few flaws, which in turn helped me get the price of the car down Wink Very Happy
but i also had my old Lude to use as a donor.

fooked headlight lens's from brows


scratched front bumper

paint damage on wing mirror

one of the alloys had pothole damage


door weather strips severly weathered

and type s badges, front and rear



so work began to get the Lude looking mint. front end first.

1st job was to change the ignition leads

then front bumper and grill off, and headlights out

headlights replaced


type s badge removed from front grill, and bumper replaced along with motegi front lip

front end complete


next up was the interior swap

interior removed from old Lude

interior stripped from new Lude


black interior and metal Prelude kick plates swapped



wing mirror casing and door weather strips changed



also swapped mirror glass as mine had etch effect honda decals


so thats all the bad bits replaced with the good, next up was to swap the side repeaters for clear ones

spoon reservoir covers

Tein lowering springs




jdm plate tilter




thats about it at the moment, ive removed the rear type s badge to, but its left an outline of the badge so i need to get that polished out. got a few more things to do of which i will update as and when i get round to sorting them.

cheers for looking Cool

lol!

im an exhibition stand fitter, its not a bad job, but the work isnt always constant, so i have to get my stuff when i can, but i have just landed some work with a chap who has a contract with one of the bigest companies in the game, so things are getting better Cool


i actually bought that lot for my old Lude, before someone reversed into it, and before i used it as a donor lol.

i got the fluids and filter etc from opie oils, so got a nice club discount on that lot Wink

small update, went to Leicester the other day to pick up these Very Happy
















i have wanted this interior for a VERY long time Laughing they are rare as fark Cool and ive only ever seen 2 Ludes with this interior. a set popped up on ebay a while ago, which i bought, but when i went to get them, they were absolutely fooked Evil or Very Mad so im absolutely buzzing to have landed these.

i also managed to get hold of a grey roof liner to replace my red one, so now ive only got to swap my dashboard and my interior swap will be complete, happy days Very Happy
