    Thieves can't hold me down... 11 months after they took my baby I've finally brought her back better than the first...

    new chassis since the NYC dept of sanitation crushed/dismantled what was left of the other one...

    SOHC vtec swap, complete color change including engine bay, P28, OBD1 complete wire harness swap

    got the car in the beginning of May with 3 psi compression and 4 speed...
    body was much worse than the first and the paint is not as flawless, but its back...

    don't mind the battery box, battery to be mounted in the trunk...

    Looks good other than that. Get some real seats and some white GT3s. :D

    the original had 2001 prelude seats...
    been looking for lude seats but no such luck so far... and the APC shitters were free....

    i found a wrecked sohc del sol on saturday with the seats with a blue stripe, i almost shit my pants...
    drivers side bolster was worn through but workable...
    started taking them out and saw that someone sliced the whole ass cushion area...
    i was fucking pissed...

    blue striped del sol seats would make me nut in that car... i want them so bad...

    and i like my oversized 17's...
    no sidewall roll and a nice contact patch, and they're lighter than stock steelies...

    At least you didn't pay for them. Funny you mention it, I had access to a nice pair of '00 prelude seats that you could have got for real cheap. Shipping would have been crap though.

    And 17s are acceptable on EGs, but anything older than '91 it makes them look like an SUV.

    how long does it take you to get to brimm's?

    they've been mad dickish lately, don't let people go in the back without an escort and won't let you pull your own shit...
