Hi my name is Dave.

I was first introduced to the Prelude game by my cousin who had a red 5th gen back then in 2001, I was 11.

Just one ride in his car and it changed my mind, I instantly became the car addict that I am now. Over time I started to get interest into the 4th gen.
Then I got my license and had money for a Lude. Though I couldn’t find any clean lude locally, because the 4th gen is over 15 years old and Canada’s car are rusted to death because of winter and salt.

So, in 2007, I bought a clean 98 DC2 integra rs. I just started to mod the integra, but only 4 month after, the car got stolen…and I bought a civic ek coupe as a daily driver to replace it.
One year later, I started to look for a lude locally again and I finally found one that was worth it. No rust, the owner had it for 11 years, not winter driven, 185k km on the clock, almost un-modded exept for some altezza tails, riced 17’s wheels and chrome tint windows…and old momo pedals and shifter yuck.

It ended up that the mechanic of the car was in bad shape; engine was knocking (H23) and suspension components feel old , crusty and direction was loose.

I own my lude since 5 years now and I modded it over the year the best I could.

96 SRV front leather seats
96 SRV rear leather seats

Nop! It was redone by the previous owner like 6-7 years agot but I plan to have it redone soon! It got some rust on the top near back window and on the side. Of the quarter pannel where the window is too..and inside when you open the sunroof but not that much!

Aniway I got that full CF roof that I bought from kevprelude for that purpose!

Oh and I also got my Jdm fog to actually work..

It was quite a bitch since I have a wrong relay plugged in and found out that it was the problem!! And I got the Tweeter switch since I have a 92.
Also had Hyper yellow day light bulb.

And since my cover valve was leaking a litttle I got these:xmas::

Oh and this is comming from England( had it cut in 2 to save on shipping:?)

I did the console swap too...


Had some wiper problems...the garage made me buy a new motor..didnt solve the problem..I did some test and seems like the switch is shorting..grounding and causing the fuse to blow up...

Did some wrapping..

Swapped some leather front seat in to complete the 96 bsrv interior...

One of the seat cushion had scars and shit...took it apart..and tie-rapped it back.
