As many of you know, my car was totaled by a kid in a Rustang a few months back. She was my baby, and I took very good care of her inside and out, minus a couple of things that were beyond my control (like getting ass-pounded by someone doing 50+mph).

I'm officially putting her up for sale. I want to sell the engine before I sell parts that make her run. I can take pictures of anything. For any questions/offers/requests, please use email: [email protected]. I'm getting way too many PMs.

The good, the bad, and the ugly:
1998 USDM Prelude SH (White Diamond Pearl, NH603-P)
<----location
130,000 miles

Type SH engine - SOLD!
Type-S strut bar and tophats - SOLD!
Black housing front turn signals - SOLD!
Driver side mirror assembly - SOLD!
Ground Control coilovers - SOLD!
KYB AGX shocks - SOLD!
Yokohama S.Drive tires - SOLD!
OE SH wheels - SOLD!
OE hood - SOLD!
OE fenders - SOLD!
OE front bumper - SOLD!
Rear floor mats - SOLD!
SH shift knob - SOLD!
SH rear deck - SOLD!
HID retrofit headlights - SOLD!
USDM fogs purchased new from HandA with everything and installed myself (comes with original bulbs and a free set of 8500k bulbs that I never got around to installing) ~$200 + S/H
Original and clear side markers (have both sets)
Rear bumper doesn't exist
Undercarriage shroud pieces are toast
Wheel well shroud pieces are toast
PLM Tri-Y header is toast
All exhaust piping is kinked (he hit the muffler dead-on)
Magnaflow 2.5" universal cat (no bungs) is still good
OBX 5x9 oval muffler with dual 2.5" outs is still good but very dirty
Interior is very nice minus front floor mats
Since this is an SH, I have the factory spoiler (completely untouched) and body-matched side skirts (dirty with black marks, but not scratched/scuffed)
Trunk lid was keyed before I bought it but otherwise undamaged
The ATTS system is not functional due to a communication error (I believe the ATTS ECU is the problem)
Everything not mentioned is original and in working condition with the exception of the head unit and front woofers (originals were sold or given away)

Recent work under the hood (less than 1k miles ago):
new head gasket and everything that goes with it
full timing belt job w/ manual tensioner
new NGK plugs & wires
new thermostat
new radiator
new radiator fan switch
new battery

On top of everything mentioned already, I also have a few aftermarket parts that might be desired by Prelude owners:
Eibach Pro-Kit (less than 25k miles before one of the rear springs started to sag)
VAFC-II with PnP harness and extension harness ~$300 + S/H
Trailer lights adapter (brand new)
Custom Flip-Out DVD head unit

Remanufactured rear calipers - SOLD!

For the record, please don't reply to this thread. For any questions/offers/requests, please use email: [email protected]. I'm getting far too many PMs to manage.

That's my fault for not saying it originally. Nothing against you h22red.

Sad, Sad, Sad.
I got PA side tboned on 7-02-12 and I am interested in the PA fender, inner fenderwell, PA Knuckle assy, PA door, maybe more, like a good wheel. I am in Muncie, IN and my 2000 SH has 122,000. Since my neighbor is the Victory Honda Body shop manager I have made him an offer he can't refuse. I still have about $5 large of work to do. You could be my parts angel for my resto project. I plan on running the Playlude for about 50K more miles so the repair is worth it to me - the alternative cost is only about a year's payments on something newer anyway.
If this works out, I am going to have to line up about 4 days where I can drive to your location, peel out some parts, and motor back to funzy Muncie. ( and a day to crash after it's all over with)
please reply to [email protected]

^^^why not. Its not a quick and dirty retro fit. Part used are quality part compare to many cheap retros done nowadays. No difference in kids these days dropping high dollars on wheels on cars that are 20 years old.

Just not a good investment but I guess key word u said is "kids"
Nothing about cars is an investment besides improving safety.
