    Cool WhiteWolf's Progress Thread

    So, after owning the 92 lude for 2 years or so, i have finally decided that i should do something with it. I bought it for 500 bucks. It is a modest little 92 Prelude S with a tiny little battler of an F22A1 engine in her. She has been through alot, and it shows. The previous owner(s) did not look after her at all. But, things can only get batter from here!!

    Here is a list of things that were done to the car, when i got her:

    - Ugly, small, incorrectly fitting Sports Steering Wheel
    - Nasty blue shiny piped pod filter (floating no less, attatched with no brackets or anything)
    - Some Pioneer head unit, with wiring harness chopped, and twisted with new wires, then sticky taped together, with a power strand running through the driver side door hinge, through the hood, directly attached to the battery terminal.
    - 3-1 Pioneer 6s in the front doors, with the speaker covers ripped/broken off.
    - A water pump that didnt work, and his solution was= 'just pour some water in the radiater before you drive, and its usually good till you get to where your going. there is a 3Lt juice bottle in the back with water for ya'
    -.-

    Anyways, thats where its at at the moment.

    FUTURE Plans:

    Rebuild engineModest
    T4 Garrett Turbo build (later, when more funds are together)
    Yellow and Black interior (Yellow accented black interior)
    Something to the sunroof (glass or carbon)
    Short shifter
    Full body kit, probably some customised rear guards, and veilside body kit bits, z3 fenders maybe...
    Respray 2-pac black
    Hood Struts
    Trunk struts
    Fix steering wheel/replace
    Relocated battery to trunk
    Halo headlights
    Carbon Hood
    El gauges


    and so on. the rest are hopes and dreams at the moment. So, im gunna start uploading some pics now

    Bargain, good luck with the work. I suggest just a good tune and repair of faulty partsd rather than turbo setup though. Looks good.

    BRING BACK THE FORUMS!

    haha, yeah, my triumph daytona is yellow too. i Do love the color. and yellow and black go together like tits at a bar, so it works well. Im lookin at doing the vent surround in the middle, as well as accents on the steering wheel, gear knob, shift boot, and pedals. then i will see if the leather seat thing is worth doing. has anyone go those leather seat cover replacements made up? I dont wanna over do the yellow tho, just accents.

    And yeah, phattzy loves his bright colors, but he had nothing to do with this one, so he cant take the blame. lol. that was all me haha

    Todays Progress saw the driver side door trimming completed, and resembled.



    And i have started the second door, finished the trimming on the lower part of the door, then ran out of adheasive.

    Hood removed, ready to pull engine out tomorrow.

    oh, and a Before pic of the horrible interior:


    With the door cards removed obviously.
