Before the resto



Getting her out my dads garage after a few years sitting



how the bay looks currently ...sorry bad pic but nothing special yet anyway

I want to clean the bay up BIG time, remove PS, cruise, AC, battery relocate, wire tuck, and remove the ABS.
Also want new wheels, dont worry

I need a new tranny as mine grinds bad , so probably going to try and find a m2b4 or I might just go aftermarket LSD and replace my sycros because they are shot.

started pulling the engine last week, had her out in a night...





at this point I decided I wanted to see how the Hytech Replica fit before I yanked the H22 out










Then this week I removed PS and AC components and started to strip the bay

I still gotta get the ABS unit out , hopefully this weekend if I get time

gutted the interior also....found 4 mouse nests
...no mice tho so hopefully they are gone..


comments , questions , input all greatly apreciated!!

Well...... life sometimes gets in the way


Almost 3 years later here I am finally getting the Lude painted and hopefully back together once I get her home.

well I got her stripped down and got her to the body shop where she has been for 2 years now
.......decided to shave the bay, fix all rust and repaint car in its Factory Milano Red.

Since its been so long I never bothered updating this thread but I've acquired some new parts recently and since she's getting closer to getting sprayed I figured i'd share.

Nice bike! Just sold my prelude this summer and replaced it with a R6. Had a black and gold lude, now it is a black and gold R6. Curious what colour the lude is getting painted? Same red as your R1 or completely different?

Thanks man , Well I actually just sold my R1 about a month ago.:wzbigcry: Owned it for six years and it was just time for me to get off the street. I ride way too fast.

The Lude after much debate will be resprayed in the original Milano Red.

Good choice, so much easier than a colour change, also cheaper. I can understand that. Riding a bike is a real risk and very easy to speed. It's almost impossible not to be speeding on a sport bike. If you have young kids too it is smart to sell it. I have no kids and no one really depending on me so completely different story.

Yea man for sure ...Yup thats basically why I'm sticking with red. The body shop was gonna take even longer changing colors and it just seemed like they didn't like the idea so rather than get a shitty job ill go Milano.....also I do like the idea of keeping it original somewhat.
