Rota Boost, 16x7 +43, can't justify spending $2k+ for wheels when my car could go a hell of a lot faster with $2k.

Car stays in the garage 5 days out of the week, bought a 04 Accord EX-L, 4cyl, 5spd for daily driving, realized that a modified car is the worst daily driver.

Simple decision considering the only time we do more than general maintenance (fluids,tires,brakes) on these models at the dealer it's something small like the secondary O2 sensor. The newer chain driven engines need next to no maintenance, they rarely even have oil leaks and have yet to see a car where the chain needed replacement, some over 300k mi.

Hey Alex,

Been a while, the car is looking good. It's Grant, btw. You worked on my silver 01 SH, I've long since sold it. Been almost 2 years now. I do kinda miss my Prelude, but the CRX game is treating me well. Doesn't take much power to make those things move but damn parts are hard to find, and if you find them, be prepared to pay for them. It's been a few months since you updated, anything new?

Don't mean to thread jack, just figured I'd share. All original, 220k and happily climbing. Phenomenal gas mileage. It's currently (as we speak) at the body shop getting all the rust and dings removed and a full body respray. I have a DOHC ZC sitting off to the side waiting to in. And it's sitting on Kosei K1's as well, I ditched the black Rotas.

Hey Grant, yeah I just decided to get away from car forums other than to look at worth while things like 98vtec's, NAH2B's, Rosko's or 71dsp's builds since the huge amount of stupid questions and mis information gets annoying to look at after a while.

The car is still rarely driven, only recently put new tires on it, 215/45R16 Khumo Ecsta XS, really nice tire, wont drive it in the rain anymore for sure though since it's a dry performance tire. New guy at work is trying to convince me to do more work to this thing, he has a AP2 S2K dumped on some white w/polished lip CCW's, not sure if you've seen it around, it's red. So maybe I'll play with this car some, I still work at the Honda dealer too btw.

I understand that, now that the CRX is finished and beautiful I want to take it off the road and buy another daily. To be honest I've caught myself looking at Preludes on the internet, wishing I could buy another one. Definitely the nicest car Ive owned to date. I think if I ever get another one, itd have to be a 4th gen with an h22a in it. I hope youre doing well and Honda is still treating you well, Ive seen you at the Regency mall periodically getting lunch with your coworkers.

Yeah, things are going good, going to the training center is like a paid vacation all expenses paid. The prelude atm is in the garage on stands, trying to make 5g ABS work in it.

That is one hell of a transformation out there..the red prelude really looks amazing out there and i think you deserve full credit of that awesome car..you really turned that car upside down.

Thanks, I took a break from the whole forum thing for a while but build threads have pulled me back in, hopefully I can update this thread soon showing my 4g using the ABS system from a 5g.

Car looks great man. I haven't read this thread yet, but I'm glad I did. I sure do love when people restore these things to near-new levels of detail. Whatever way you'll go next with it is sure to be just as great. Keep up the great work.

Thanks



Got the ABS modulator mounted up, now that the test fitting is done I'm gonna have to shoot that corner of the bay with some rattle can since the leaking brake fluid ate up the paint.
