Thank ya sir! Me too, I like the BBSes, but I absolutely hate the sizing of them. These are damn near perfect I think (size wise). I'm not super nuts about them being staggered, but it's growing on me.
So I haven't really updated this lately, mostly because there isn't much to update. This has been taking up my time and mostly my funds lately:
My '06 TSX Navi manual. Didn't really plan on buying one (even though I really wanted one), but I came across this one, which is exactly what I was looking for. So funds are a bit tight right now until I get things straightened out, but it's nice having a reliable, comfortable daily that has the potensial to be fun. Already has a couple mods (Funtion and Form Type 1s and a Tanabe Medalion exhaust) along with a dealer installed A-Spec Lip kit.
So this is what I've been up to lately, I still love my lood and will continue to mess with it, but I gotta get some things straightened out first.
I do too, that's half the reason I bought the car because the full kit was already on it. I love how they look. Even though after finding out about the Modulo Voltage front bumper, I kind of want that more lmao. But I'll probably end up sticking with the A-Spec.
Can't say I've done a whole ton to it in a long while. I finally did the whole 'house mod' thing, so the Prelude is kinda on the back burner for a little bit longer. I'm really hoping to start working on it again here in the fall once it cools down a bit, and then get it tagged and back on the road next spring. I did take it in the backyard and got some shots of it though!
And I do have a confession. I have been kinda working on the TSX a bit, so that maayyyy be part of the reason why the Prelude is on stands... But it's almost to the point of where I want it, so attention will revert back to the Prelude shortly. I'm currently waiting on the TSX ecu to come back from Hondata this week (yes, both cars are down at the moment), PLM header should be here tomorrow, CT-E short throw and Progress rear sway have been both installed and trying to pull enough ambition together to put the Hondata IM gasket on. It also got new Tein Flex Zs and new tires on the BBSes, so yeah, I've been spoiling it a tad bit.
Short answer is to get it back on the road and not have it rust away and be a bit more reliable lol.
Long answer is is take all the suspension apart, sandblast and POR15 pretty much all the suspension arms and whatnot, install the energy suspension bushings I've had laying around for years now. Clean up the rust on the body (you can see how bad it is where the rear crash bar mounts). Put new axles, all the new steering parts I've had laying around in, rear upper and lower balljoints/control arms, Megan toe arms and traction bar in.
Then for the interior there's a ton of seeds laying around from mice getting in the car when it was sitting, so clean all that up and make it not smell like an old shed lol. Redo the wiring for the PFMs, actually get the door lights wired up, get rid of the wiring and module for airbags, get rid of the modules and clean up the wiring from the deleted cruise, delete A/C, clean up the wiring from relocating the engine bay fuse box to the interior, do some minor wire tucking in the engine bay ... *breathes* and I think that it. Oh and put it back together.
Car now has full optional leather (found it in a junkyard, no less!), S-Spec cluster, Innovative traction bar, Mishimoto half rad, full 3" exhaust, suspension has been fully POR-15'd and poly-bushing'ed, ABS is deleted, and fully deleted SRS and Cruise as well (only things left are the wiring, but I don't feel like pulling the harness apart for that.) I know I'm missing a bunch of stuff, but it's slipping my mind. I do have a full JDM front for it now (crash bar too, which is actually on the car), still has to be painted, and acquired 98% of the things necessary to boost on the stock block. But since it's almost Oct. and the car is drinking oil, I'll just wait and decide what I want to do with the motor first and make it a winter project.
