    Good luck with the project. I suggest just enjoying it even if it is an auto, maybe get a 4g manual or something later.

    My friend who used to be on here has a bogan dad who wouldn't let him buy another Prelude (died at 270,000kms hadn't been serviced in a long time) because they are "jap shit" or another japanese car at all, he said he would get it towed if he did.

    The VT commodore he drives breaks down all the time, the paint is faded and peeled after only a few years, and the alternator is so weak that he has to turn his music off 10 mins before he arrives where he is going, or the car won't start up again (aftermarket stereo). God I hate it when people hate a car on where it is made...

    That's seriously ****ed up =|

    And yeah, the manual conversion isn't till a long time down the road, pretty much last on the list since I'll need to re-do my Ps to drive it :3

    Quick update: I've got the $2k sitting in my safe at home for the JDM lude, but my mate hasn't got his loan for his new car yet, so now I've just got to play the waiting game.

    In other news; I've decided against the EFI conversion on the JDM lude, as since this will be my first car project ever, I really have no clue what I'm doing in that end of the field, so I'll just be stripping it since my interior and a few panels aren't in the best shape- anything I'm not using I shall part out on here for you guys of course :3

    And now that I've saved up the $2k I need for the parts lude, I can start blowing money on strut / sway bars etc

    The main parts I want from it are the wheels and sound system, wheels came with it when he got it imported, can't remember what they are, but they're hawtt, and he's spent like 1-1.5k on the sound system

    So I'm trying to kill two birds with one stone :3

    So I thought about what you said and talked to my 'rents about it and everything, they all agree I'm pretty stupid, i'd be putting a $2k car and a $2k car together, and ending it with like a 2.5k car, and since I'm not the richest guy around it's probs not the best option.

    Told my mate i'm not keen anymore, and now have a nice $2k to spend on parts / traveling before I go to uni next year

    First on the list, King Lows from SnowWhiteLude on sunday

    probably a wise move, i'd second it, cause you will be able to find yourself a nice pair of second hand rims anyway that you can put on, or perhaps if your mate has his stock wheels he may put the stock ones on before selling and you can buy just the wheels?

    Yeah looking for a pair of 2nd hand wheels now, in the meantime I'm probably just going to paint my stockies black And get some new rubber on them, since they're so bald it's scary. Literally.

    Just found these on ebay http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CHEAP-17x...item45fc0a44f7

    It's a bit far away, gonna ask if I can get a picture of each wheel to see what kind of condition they're in. And also get the exact specs on them so I can see if they'll actually fit =|

    I can let you know about a decent set of ANZ tazers if you like? 17 x 7 mesh style if youre interested? The dish will need a good sand and polish but will look good on a 3G. Let me know.

    You don't need additonal specs to see if they fit, the listing says they are 4x114 stud pattern, 3rd gens are 4x100
