ill post pictures soon and elaborate on the work done.


this is me at my placement for school. So you can put the face to the lude.


My fiance painted the fuse box after my favourite show "futurama"


1991 prelude 400 000 km as of last month


Painted the honda 4ws logo. currently replacing the gears to fix the trip meter

side view with red honda sticker and the "se" gold trim logo

what happens when a family member doesnt know how to drive.

some idiot stole my 4ws badge so i had to replace it with this sport badge. why do people mess with our ludes?parts are so hard to find in canada!

infamous bumper sag. rice rocket muffler until i have enough to buy the oem muffler.


nice profile shot. the initials are from my fiance "JB".

nicely cleaned center console with pioneer deck and a sort of fitted cd holder.

painted the vaccum box and used a siler paint on the raised letters and lines.

this weekend hopefully going to be replacing the ps resevoir with this nicely cleaned out one. plus all the hoses are going to be claned out and re fitted . :)


once and a while its a good idea to wash out the brake cylinder filter. mine was very dirty now its clean.

this is the broken egr port. will be fixing it soon. b20a engine stamp

the engine bay. pic is a year old.


Please go easy on me in terms of bashing this worn out lude. i put on 5000 km a months going back and forth to school. so the only repairs i can afford to do are the general repais needed to keep a car going.

thanks for looking at the pictures.

June 6 2009

- transmission oil change
added lucas tranny fluid

- Put new bolts in headers and all exhaust pipes

You really need to grow up kid. He hasnt done anything to his car. I personally get tired of seeing people create build threads that dont do anything.

June 05 - purchased 1991 prelude 4ws for one xbox 360
i'm impressed...

not with the 'build'

but with the fact that your traded a 360 for a car...

in june of 05.....

when the 360 didn't release in north america until november of 05.

the 360 was unveiled by microsoft in may of 05, meaning....

you had a preproduction 360 that most of the world didn't even know about yet, and managed to trade someone a car for it?

wow.

i'll bet the red ring of death that most of the early 360s had really pissed him off.

Bro, I read every word you put down. As I stated, which my opinion doesnt matter to most was that so many people create these so called "build threads" and dont do anything. Congrats on getting the car for a Xbox, but really to me these threads in general never go anywhere. Please dont take offense to what I think, and hopefully your lude does begin to take more progress in the future.:headbang:

always look up honda's MSRP online before you purchase anything at a dealer.

you might not get the best deal, but you should never pay more than honda thinks you should.

yeah, if any other honda dealership sells something for cheaper, they will match it.
all the retail prices are on majestic honda next to their price.

you need to grow up, this is the internet and its a free forum. As long as he posts within the perameters of the topic hes more than welcome to make a build thread.

There is no requirements for build threads. Therefore he can write about painting the head of a nut in the bottom of his engine bay. i wouldnt care or lose any sleep, i just wouldnt take the time to write anything or give him props for what he's done. No one should get bashed for making an attempt at fixing up their car.

Liek someone above has said, the kid has done a lot more than just normal tuneup shit. A new engine...shit i havnt even swapped my engine. I need new ball joints and a new windshield....& shit hes got all new ones.


He's done plenty in my book & a good job at that.



Question is, what have you done captain awesome.....?
