So today makes 5 years since I got my Prelude. Decided to take some photos. And man she needs a paint job. . . also this isn't just a photo thread, so I'd hope the other mods will respect the fact that I have it here. So ya, I'll post some more in here it's just really late!

enjoy...

Your 2nd gen is immaculate...I miss my 2nd gen now...I am weeping now...
Thanks man but it's far from immaculate! I swear this camera brought out all the nastiness this car has. So many scratches on the hood and such the bumper is a little scathed. The left front little side trim if you look at the close up, you'll notice it's not aligned. It fell off and i glued it back on! :evil smile: The right side the trim is like borken! i got it like that though. :turn:

The close up of the door handle. Changed, that's not original. Got it from a junkyard. The colour is slightly off! In on of the interior shots, you can see the torn up seat. (I always have seat covers though. ;) )

I must admit the photos look much better on a computer screen than on the HDTV, guess you can see the scratches more. :( :(

Thanks though man. I know you enjoy my photos. And it's greatly appreciated. :smilejap:

thats one primo 2nd gen man. keep it safe!
Thanks man. i think I'm gonna try my hardest to keep her in the garage from now on. The sun, dust, rain, bird crap, and wild animals jumping on and scratching my car is taking it's toll over the years. Seems like every week there's anew scratch. And the peeling paint on the hood roof and trunk isn't getting any better with all these elements.

Breaks my heart every time i see a new scratch or the paint getting worse. :cries:

Traveling in her will cease from now on. I got her with 107k miles, just recently got bumped to 130. :| :| I have other cars for traveling now. She can't take anymore bug debris either.

So, hopefully from now on instead of keeping this car in it's current condition, we'll see it actually being restored and modded. ;) Thanks to fullthrottle_man the JDM flip up fogs can be installed. Hopefully in working order as well!! :)

many thanks to the lot of you who've helped keep my baby on the road and keep me inspired to keep her going. In another 5 years I'll hopefully have another thread. :smilejap:

Wow that's a long time thinking to it. . .lookin forward to it though!

well as long as you don't forget that it is a car and it needs to be driven every now and then...

anyway, get some pics up of those JDM fogs when you get a chance... I've never seen them on a 2g.

Ya, I've been using a motorcycle to get me around lately. So far it's done me well. but it's not replacing my Honda. Just that gas is so expensive!

I believe this is the only photo of the fogs "on" the car. haha

I suppose the scratches don't show in these photos, but she does. Everyone who's seen it in person agrees. It's a perculiar thing though. All the scratches are on the top of the car, not the side. IE the hood roof and trunk lid. The roof of the car has been stripped of all the paint to be honest! Luckily it sorta matches the colour. but still. :(
