I'm new to this and I'm a really big fan of Preludes, especially the 2nd gen and 5th gen and is barely gettin' into cars. I was wonderin', since I recently picked up my 87 2.0 SI, where can I get an EQ tray/console replacement?? Pep boys maybe? Idk, I'm young and amateur at this, so help me out! :wzbigcry:

Here is a pic of what I'm talking about:

I got one for u in Texas if ur equalizer works and u just don't want it
Nah, mine came with an EQ, but I don't want the EQ since I'ma install an aftermarket Alpine deck for my sound system. I wanna replace the EQ with a tray as shown in the picture I uploaded. So you said you have an extra tray made for the 2nd gen 'lude? I'm from San Diego, California. How much would you charge for it? && I got another question you could probably answer right off the bat for me. Is this "coin tray" also an ashtray? The little tray that goes right under the EQ since my car didn't come with one. Here's the link:

And if you know a place to get it cheaper, lemme know! Thanks a lot man.

Sounds good. The EQ works great and everything. So you'll hook it up for the eq replacement tray and the ashtray which is they tray right underneath EQ??? & How come you want the EQ? Tryna keep it OEM? And what color's the ashtray? Blue or black??


So you're willing to trade me your ashtray and eq replacement tray for my EQ?
And is this photo correct of your ashtray and eq:

I'm looking for the blue ashtray, which is the SI, correct? And the eq replacement is black which is the same color as the radio dash, so that's cool. And do you have fb? So we can communicate our further shipping and handling there. Wish San Diego had 2nd gen Preludes at the junkyards...

Nah, I got it from google images. Here's my car:


It has the OEM tape deck and the EQ indeed, but I do not use CD's anymore. I'm installing an Alpine deck that's USB and iPod compatible, so I'm pretty good on music capability in the car, thanks for you concern tho man! And my interior is blue, but I'ma hit up the junkyard too this weekend down south of San Diego and see if I might hopefully run into any blue ashtrays. And btw, my car is an '87 so would your ashtray or any other years fit? Thanks again brother

That chick walkin' down the block is my sister, haha. She was talkin' shit to her husband on the phone. But yeah, I know that the tape player plays the radio, but I don't have any tape cassettes to test it out with, but I will asap. And I've got some bad news and good news. I'm willing to trade you my EQ for both your blue ashtray & EQ replacement tray, but it's gonna have to wait over a month due to my car being placed at my uncle's house in the far east of San Diego and he's taking a trip back to Vietnam for a month. My pops transported there without me knowing while I was at school, so I was pretty upset. Shit has all kinds of leaking problems and shit, but it'll all get done after a month. So I'm still down for the trade, just gonna have to wait over a month. Sounds good?

Sounds great man. Keep me updated. Idk how to add friends on here, so add me somehow, lol. So stock DECK + EQ for EQ replacement tray + blue ashtray + blue armrest. Hope everything comes out as expected!
