there are kits for flushmounts. go to your local body shop and ask for some fiberglass and resin and some bondo and primer and paint, go to a parts store and buy projector lights, go to a hardware store and get some plexiglass and a propane torch, some studs, and some wingnuts, go to the package store and get a LOT of beer, go to the gas station and get a few cartons of ciggarettes. go home, and assemble it all

:-D:-D:-D

Just get an h4 conversion and be done with it, the flip up lights are what give the 3rd gen its style, its like taking the turbo off an srt-4 or converting a WRX to front wheel drive, maybe not so extreme, but you get the point ;)

Do not get me wrong, I love what honda had in mind when they designed my lude... but this lude is MY car and it is no longer honda's car. If you were a car designer, say you made mazda's or something, would you drive a nissan? Probably not. Which is exactly why people want to do this conversion including myself. I have nothing against the pop-ups. I'd just rather have my own unique look. Make it MY car, and not some other guy's idea of a car on blueprints. It may not be 100% prelude, but it's still a honda so I can still hang with the crowd :-D

And you have every right to put whatever you want on your car (if it fits), regardless of what others say, think, or even how they react. Good on you man.

^^^ My sentiments exactly. If you don't like flip-ups why did you get a 3rd gen Prelude ?

Was it a gift ??

Exactly what I was thinking!:roll:

Man, just leave it alone. You want a nice mod? Get some piaa LED foglights and wire them to your turn signal so that you dont have to flip up your lights to see at night. I wanted to mod my lights but saw how much work go into it... don't do it!(i've also seen that kit stolen because the guy went to the movies in his 240sx, parked it for two hours came back to no lights and a summons for having no lights...

No one is really saying you cant do it. By all means, blow $600 on your foglights. I just think people on here would rather put that money elsewhere. I am all for customizing your ride, its just that I would put that $600 somewhere else at the time...
