I bought this prelude for about $4000 after my ej8 was hit by a drunk driver in the middle of the night. I wanted to change it up. its a decent car but it could use a little more power.

This is what it looked like when i first brought it home.

First mod was tokico shocks with tokico lowering springs. Thanks to Mr. ET for the install. But it barely made a difference lol :(

Then got it ready for the winter on some talon wheels.

The summer after that i purchased some red gt3's off a fellow beyonder.

Next mod after that was some tanabe sustec coilovers from jdm source, a front lip from speedtech, and a wink mirror. This is how my car sits for now.

Still a work in progress. Any feedback would be awesome!

Nice car Chris.

I always liked the "clean" look for preludes. I would slap on the blades again (perhaps polish them) and then paint any of the black body parts on the car. It would really be a good look on it!

Either way, great pick up, and love the Milano.

I'm kinda in the same position as you.
My car was hit while it was parked, and I wanted a bit of a newer car.

My car has hella bumps and bruises all over the body, your bb6's body look great. I couldn't afford one with a good body.

Feedback on your car (from a bb6 newb with an ugly bb6)

Your headlights are crazy foggy and ugly, please polish them and clear them up ASAP, looks horrid, especially when you have mods.
I can even polish them for you if you want.

The wheels I'm absolutely not feeling, same with the wink mirror, but this is purely my opinion and it's your car so you don't have to build your car based on my opinions.

You're also missing a grill below the hood front.

^ thx for the feedback! Yea my lights are totally done. Im gonna purchase new ones from my work soon, same with the signals. The rims are a hate/love thing for me. I wanna get something new and wider, so if anyone wants to trade pm me! The wink mirror I use to hate till the day I got it and absolutely fell in love with it. I took off the grill cause I didnt like the style of it, just wanted to go for grilless look to see how it is. Or if I were to get one it would have to be one with small honey combs. I hated mine cause it was huuge.

Yea I'm ordering new headlights from my work soon. Yea I'm trying to get rid of these rims and I love the wink. Use to hate it though. And I just like the look of no grill, or I want something clean with no mesh's.

I think you would be impressed how easily a little power polish will make those lens' look like new.

IMO save the money replacing them, at least give the polish a shot before you make the decision to replace them.

I'll do it for free, come by and it'll take 20 mins and you can see how much of a difference it makes.

I had to remove both window visors and bolted the wink mirrors brackets into the existing holes. Mine fit perfectly. There's also a kit that mounts where ur existing rear view is. Crappy thing is the suns in ur eyes when its sunny. That's why I purchased sun glasses lol.

Thx for the comment. A lot of preludes in calgary have inspired me to build mine up. It'll get better one day. Hard to find parts.

What kind of kit are you thinking about? Nice to see some lude building going on.

MugenBB6
09-03-2010, 02:16 PM
There's a really nice lude which is my inspiration for my build, but he has a lip that covers half the bumper. Don't quite remember the name but io have a feeling its charge speed. But I'll post the pic later, to hard to post stuff from the berry. Gotta decide on wheels too.

this is the kit i was talking about and my main inspiration for my car.
