Shaved carbon fiber trunk

I'm not sure, I was planning to decide how much I wanted one based on how much I could get one for. Ideally I'd like to find one for around the same price as the other OEM ones....of course cheaper is always better

wow....what a wing......

If you want to make the trunk lighter just take that off, or if you are going for looks just shave the stock trunk. Anyway 20 seconds spent on google yielded this:

Prelude exhaust, Prelude intake, Prelude coilover, Prelude turbo, Prelude carbon, Prelude header

you seem kinda slow...
I said a shaved carbon fiber, not an OEM style. and I googled and searched quite a bit before posting the thread. also are you referring to the OLD supra style wing I had?? it was replaced with a much lighter touring wing. I'm not going for weight reduction here, I'm going for strength / structural integrity. lastly...if you actually paid attention to any of the pics, you'd see my stock trunk is already shaved.

Well since there isn't one probably available, it's going to be custom.

So yeah, I'd say $2000 just for fun.

Is that what led you to getting Z3 fenders and the body kit?

overall the car looks to be in pretty good shape. I don't like the mods, but to each his own

I sold mine....one of them atleast. The other one with the lsd h22 works fine, but it makes an odd sound just above 5,000rpm

what I learned a long time ago was to not listen to other people. the coincidence is, I think the stock look is the best for the prelude, but lowered about an inch with a 5 lug swap and either ray's wheels or 5th gen base wheels.

well it's nice this has turned into a troll thread instead of something helpful
indylude18, you're a ****in retard. look at the front page pics and try reading.
as I've said already, that wing is no longer on the car....this is my car:


now if anyone actually has something useful to contribute here, plz do

like I said before, I don't like the mods, but that's just me. What's under the hood?

If you want a shaved CF trunk....search more online. I'm not sure if they make them - I know at one time they were making CF panels for the prelude. You may have to get it custom.

Good luck

all of my mods are listed on the cardomain page. most of them so far have been suspension. the motor is pretty much ready for boost though. I replaced the pistons and rods, put arp bolts in, just don't have a turbo or anything to put on it yet

yeah, I did search quite a bit online. all I was able to find were the OEM ones

just save the money and go with the turbo and tune. most people who get CF (that I have seen around here atleast) get it for show. If there's nothing wrong with the trunk lid, keep it.
