    Thumbs up COTM - April - **Brash22**

    Well ladies & Gentlemen what can I say, I would like to introduce you to another SA Beauty.

    Name: Colin
    Handle: Brash


    Engine / Performance Modifications:
    JDM Type S intake
    JDM Type S red rocker cover
    K&N air filter

    Body work:
    OEM front lip
    Mugen* side skirts, rear pods and (yet to be fitted) spoiler
    Clear side indicator repeators
    Hybrid JDM/USDM/EUDM fog lights
    OEM gold badge kit
    OEM gold PRELUDE badge on side skirts
    USDM honeycombe grille with PRELUDE badge
    JDM window visors

    Interior:
    JDM carbon fibre instrument binnacle
    JDM carbon fibre console
    Factory perforated leather

    ICE:
    Kenwood KDC-6026 source unit (soon to be replaced)
    Alpine 600WRMS x 1 and 75WRMS x 4 amplifiers
    Polk Momo Carbon 5.25” splits (front)
    MB Quart 5.25” splits (rear)
    3 Polk Audio 8” subs in custom ported enclosure
    Cadance competition wiring

    Wheels & Tyres:
    Lenso RC2 17x7
    Toyo Tranpath 215/40/ZR17

    Suspension:
    Neuspeed front strut brace

    Misc:
    Gas struts for boot lid
    Gas struts for bonnet

    Jem's Corner

    What's you're Favourite Mod?
    Probably the stereo, gives me the most satisfaction, but the bonnet struts would be a close second; they make it so easy to work on!

    If you had your time to redo everything again what would you do or not do?
    Do it all quicker! And start with a manual car.

    If you could have another Model Prelude - What would it be?

    BB6 SiR S Spec, BB8 SiR 4WS or third gen INX

    How long did it take you to decide what Mods to do?
    Decisions are always a long and well thought out and well researched process

    Where did you get your ideas?
    I’ve often said that LEWD, Hooman and DMT have been inspirations of mine, but aside from that, just being on every English language Prelude site there is and seeing the stuff done, and generally thinking “nice, but if I do this instead…” More ideas and plans than money!

    Did you do majority of the Mods yourself?
    Yup. Painting the kit is about the only thing I left to a professional. I wired up all the stereo, built the box, fitted the lip kit, etc.

    Do you have a name for your lude?
    I named her Magnum shortly after purchase, deciding she was a semi-automatic weapon. In a fit of laziness Magnum became Maggie. (Yes I know they have the same number of syllables, so don’t point that out)

    What Mods did it have when you bought it?
    Numerous dents and scratches from a pair of real estate agent former owners that didn’t really watch where they parked as closely as they should’ve

    Has it been Dyno'ed? What's the result?
    Yes, 101kW atw, Dyno Dynamics Shootout Mode, SAPA Dyno Day March 2006

    Next Mod?
    SUSPENSION! And fitting that Mugen tail I have…Then…

    Future Aspirations for Prelude?
    There’s a lot of little things that I’m working on, many of which I’ve not seen done before, and as such I won’t be saying what they are. And I’d love to do the 5-spd conversion but we’ll see how we go.

    How do you find the police are towards your lude? Any story's?
    No they don’t seem to notice it, just like every other Commodore driver. Occasionally one wedges him/herself under my rear spoiler but that’s about it. Oh, and the cop at the last bretho asked if the car was mine or my dad’s when he heard the Midnight Oil playing!

    meh too ricey more my taste........hahah jk Col, you know i love your car. All the mods are so subtle and classy that an un-(honda)educated person probably wouldnt notice them, but could still tell this is a nice car. I still need to have a ride in this, an hear the stereo properly. Oh and put that damn spoiler on! haha, It will also look nicer when you sort the sussy (I know its coming) an that exhaust we spoke about will be good as well. dooooo iiiiiiiiit!!!!! (I will help you rob a bank if you need, lol)

    anyhoo, congrats on COTM, very well deserved

    One of my favourite Preludes ever. Just so classy, beautiful colour combinations, artful personal touches, and real prelude purity.

    Love it.

    Very nice car, don't really like all the stickers clashes a little with the gold VIP feel.
