    Here's some of the buffed yellow. Doesn't look half bad, when I take my next holiday I'll just have to mask up the car and add some more coats to the rest of the paint.



    And this is what some sh*thead did to the red prelude. Doesn't show the scratch beside it either. Anyone know of any reasonable scratch/chip repair places around west sydney?

    Ran some TB cleaner through the red car, and removed the pod filter. Put the stock intake back on with a new filter. Car feels more responsive now . A bit quicker too .


    Yellow car has a leaking sump gasket (non genuine junk). Was pouring oil onto the exhaust, and boy did it stink . New honda gasket has arrived though and I will be changing it shortly.

    I take it the pod was a hot intake style setup.

    Correct, It was mounted where the stock air filter normally goes.

    and time for the updates .

    Regular kind of stuff:
    Red car
    • oil change
    • new rocker cover gasket
    • dizzy seal


    Yellow car:
    • Oil change
    • New rocker cover gasket + spark plug seals
    • new sump gasket
    • sealed oil temp gauge gasket


    But now for the more interesting stuff, pics!!!!

    Painted the yellow car again, Coated much wetter this time. So much smoother this time, and already far glossier and hasn't been colour sanded or buffed yet.



    Kitty Approves!


    Ignore the stick on the right, i'm gluing the door trim on






    New rims. Rota Grids in 16x7





    New exhaust. Powerflow stainless muffler with full stainless tips.








    New Carpets :O


    New 2 channel amp




    But now can't let the yellow car have all the fun o.0

    This is for all the people who say preludes can't carry stuff. 2.4metre sheets of MDF



    But the mdf does have something to do with the car





    I reckon the yellow car could take the red one in a straight line, despite all the work it's had done. So to rectify the situation...

    Turbo kits is on its way from the states o.0

    Well it's a manifold For a b20a5 and a t3 turbo with dump pipe. I guess not really a full kit.
