I purchased a 1999 Honda Prelude SH a little over a week ago. After
learning to drive a stick, I figure the next step is to make it look a
little better. It's pearl white and 100% stock. I don't have pics, but I'm
pretty sure you're familiar with it.
Anyways...these are some things that I want to do to the car in the future.
2. Carbon Fiber Hood
That's the order I plan to go in anyways. I have a little over a grand left, so I can do some stuff right away.
I'm not really worried about exhaust, intake, and the interior just yet, so leave that alone for now. I just want some opinions.
I have three questions.
1. I want a second color for the car (Remember it's just white on the outside, black interior), and I'm thinking carbon fiber would look pretty cool. Is that a good idea? I don't live in a rich area or an Asian area, so I'm not worried about everyone having carbon fiber.
2.If I got a carbon fiber hood, would gunmetal color rims be a good match, or should I go with something else?
3. http://www.carbon-fiber-hoods.com/enter.html?lang=en-us&target=d24.html I know absolutely nothing about these hoods. Which one do you think is a pretty good deal that would make the Lude look good?
Thanks a lot,
Ricer......... :fu: :fu: :fu: :fu: :fu: !!!!!!!!!!!
Make it go fast goddamit! fuk u.
I would suggest changing the title, otherwise Oomba will never leave you alone... :ohcrap:
Now now...he would be a ricer if he implied it was the fastest car around with all that...so far he has not done so.
:banghead: slap K&N air filter on it, :banghead: not rice. rice bad... *eye twitching*
Im sorry... :rolleyes:
Noone has the right to 'flame' him, he's asking an opinion, he already has
his mind made up for the order in which he'll do things. Noone needs to
tell him to do performance first and forget looks. People, instead of
'flaming', either help him with an answer he's looking for or dont reply
I think just a regular/plain carbon fibre hood would look nice (not too fancy) and since its white with black interior, gunmetal wheels would look pretty nice, i dont think i'd go any bigger then 17's.
Something like this hood: (from the link you posted)
As long as he doesn't mess up my thread with pointless arguements I don't mind.
To be quite honest with answering your question, I think Preludes look best in stock form. Rim change maybe, but I'm not so sure about the hood. It's your car, so obviously please do whatever you would feel best to, that's just my opinion.
He will...I'd be willing to bet money on it. :ohcrap:
**** that. Why not make your car fast you ricer piece of shit?
I understand. It's not that it looks bad, you know how it is, I just want something a little out of the norm.
You have no life, pal. :mrgreen:
Just ignore him.
:mrgreen: sorry for flaming, if you have to rice it, but on the carbon fiber hood, then the wheels, but thats just what i think, u can do watever u want i guess, even if it is rice... :mad2:
I told you...really Oomba, do you have a life?
I would agree as far as visual mods go, hoods are one of the least offensive. With the right color combination they can look pretty nice.
Hey look, its our best bud :banghead:
If you care, then pay him to. pretty simple. If you aren't puttig up the
cash, the STFU.
He probably isn't so deficient that he has to have his car make his testosterone for him. It's already fast enough to get tickets anywhere in the country, so he doesn't NEED to make it faster. If he wants to make it faster, he'll ask how, and we'll tell him. If he thinks it's fast enough to drive NOW, and wants to make it look better to him, then we should (and have) given our opinions on how to do THAT.
If youre not going to be IN the car or DRIVE the car, why do you care how much faster than the speed limit it can go?
Sorry that you have to compensate for small penis size with a big engine.
So sad... :laughing:
Remember, there's nothing wrong with big enignes and liking them. I've built many. It's the requirement that a car needs that excess power in order to like/drive it that says you're compensating... :hi:
LOL, you just PWNED him again :laughing:
naw, no ownage. he'd have to be smart enough to get it to be ownage, and
there's no evidence for that...
Haha damn, Chris just keeps spitting them out :laughing: . This is ogtta pretty off-topic, or atleast not so helpful.
I agree. You definately don't need a spoiler or body kit, but some new rims could be good.
why not make it go faster! :laughing: or i could shutup, and go sit in the corner of naughteness... but first i should do something even more naughty... this is what i think of rice!! :guns:! please don't hurt me! *whack* *trudging off the the corner of naughtiness, with a sore rear*
I'l respond to you without a flame. But first a question... What do you
think of my previous responses in this thread?
So why not make it go faster? Maybe he doesn't need to to be faster (especially if he's a fairly new driver. Getting a faster car than you can handle is a Bad Idea.). So to answer your question, why make it faster than it al ready is, if it's more than fast enough to get you into trouble anywhere in the country? Why should your sense of fun be his sense of fun?
I realize you're just a kid and so any feeling of excessive speed is something to drool over, but it's really not necessary in the real world. And you can make a car look better to you to start with, then build up to speed as you learn how to handle it.
go with what you think looks good. who give what others think. your car is pretty much quick already.
I would lower it, put on some nice 17-18" rims, and then a carbon fiber hood. I personally like the darker carbon fiber hoods. Some euro tailights would look nice too, as well as some OEM head lights :thumbs:
It's already pretty low, so I don't think suspension is necessary. I'm definitely gonna go with the 17"'s, I'm not sure though about which ones to get (trying to get rims from around $700-900. But thanks for the reply.
Dont worry about my dick size homo, i dont hear any complaints
No complants from your boyfriends? well isnt that special! hey Douche get out you punk a$$ wannabe. :fu: :fu: :fu:
I like the invader or the EVO. Im going with the EVO my self. it adds a bit of curve to it. Then add some paintable housing tail lights and projector head lights, Angel eyes W/orW/O Halo. some nice 18s or 19s (best to not chose chrome if you like to race around expecially it would weigh down your car and lose that precious gas mileage) you dont have to go all out if you want. All of these are suggestions to help you define your ultame dream car. :2cents:
Probably because you're still a virgin....
It's probably because you over pay them :wink2:
Ok, enough with the insults. Do it in another thread! :banghead:
Congrats on the car! U made a good choice. I got mine about a month ago,
its 98 base, in silver. Anyways, go with 17s. That what I got on mine and
it looks awesome. Black rims will be great, especially with the CF hood. Or
you can add another color like blue or red. I got blue brake covers or
whatever they're called, and a blue circle on the inside of the wheel that
covers the lug nuts. Inside I went with blue flame seat covers, matching
rugs, blue shifter and blue steering wheel. Looks great.
So I'd say add another color, (red is awesome), or just stay with black/white, and add that silver cobra head shifter.
An influx of 5th gens all of a sudden
Never said *I* was concerned with your dick size. I couldn't care less
whether you even have one or not. YOU'RE the only one concerned with your
dick size, which is why you are compensating so much. :thumbs:
And you're probably right, your hand probably doesn't complain all that much...
:D i love it when Chris burns people... it's hilarious....
Sorry to say it but.. Wheres Super Jew? :laughing:
If Oomba and one other idiot would get banned, this forum would be a much better place.
am i the other idiot?
:laughing: No, I was thinking of CarEXPERT.
HAHA! someone once referred to me as a more knowledgable version of CarEXPERT, i'm not but, i just say what i know and accept what i don't, lol.
Trust me, you're not at all like him, he's just an annoying little shit... :laughing: :doh:
gee, thanks for the acceptance, lol.
only part i liked about being referred to him was the fact that his name is CarEXPERT and i was expected to be more knowledgable then him on motor vehicles?
lol, i was shocked, lol.
You seem to know what you are talking about, but he is no car expert. He's one of those little kids who thinks he knows more than he really does. :ohcrap:
Ooh, ouch, masturbation jokes from the guy too afraid to show his head in the Probe topic because he got proven wrong and cant deal with it.
My future plans for my prelude:
1. JDM foglights
2. Tein basic damper kit
2. BBS or OZ wheels and better tires ( :guns: RE92)
3. Original (not replica) Mugen kit w/ wing
4. VIS CF hood
5. manual tranny
in no particular order...cept maybe teh manual conversion before the boost.
if i was you, i'd keep the lude stockie and go hard on the rx7, your choice but.
that is exactly what im doing right now, the 7 is the mod car and the 'lude the dd. Im just stating future plans once im out of college.
ahh ok, makes more sense now, lol.
is that a 13b or 13bt?
the car is a gxl with the original 13b motor. my plan is to swap a S5 Turbo II motor into the car w/ tranny and go from there. i don't think ill do anything with the appearence of the car tho...
so you intend to replace the 13b with a 13bt w/ the trans, good idea.
with the appearance, if i was you, i'd just have it lowered and then get some nice decent mags, like R-17 TE37's or GT-N's.
both great mags, look great on 7's too.
thats because you dont get any!!!!!!! FAG :fu:
He isn't anywhere close to being knowledgable. He didn't even know what a cold air intake is and how that combined with a puddle could distroy your engine. :screwy:
Woo woo, hydrolock
My friend has a CAI, he shuts his engine off when he goes through puddles
hmm....i dont think rims + CF hood + intake + exhaust would make a car look rice.
Why doesn't he jsut invest in a bypass valve?
Because he was sarcasticly pointing out that a CAI combined with a puddle doesn't destroy the engine.
This thread reinforces my need to never own a FWD Honda.
Slipknot, why wouldn't he already have OEM headlights?
Is that an R32? Or an EVO? Nope just a Prelude. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery for more serious cars I guess.
So you have an SH model and you want a CF hood? I don't car what anyone says. CF hoods are a performance mod. Unless you are buying a fake CF cover for your hood, CF is first and foremost a performance mod. You don't ever see them in production do you? Because they break easier and most people would wonder why only the hood was black and dislike it. Some people want to lose a few pounds, you want to look fast. The thread says it all. Rice. period. Stop arguing about it, he openly admits it.
Your basing this thread on why you'd never want to own a FWD Honda? I'm sorry but I've heard better logic from Al Sharpton than you on this matter.
CF can be painted. Which is what I would do if I ever got one. CF hoods look ricey.
yeah but honestly... ur gonna pay more money just to paint the hood when it doesnt need to be painted. Seems like a waste to me. :screwy:
Besides the fact that it looks like shit unpainted, no its not. Its no more of a waste then getting a primered hood you've been driving around with for a year painted.
The OEM hood is prety fukin heavy, i would think the cf hood gives decent weight/strength savings...
reinforces is the operative word here. lol.
I think I saw somewhere that the CF hood only saves like 15 lbs...not that much weight saving. I like how they look, but I'd probably only get one if I had to replace my hood for some reason anyways.
I guess it just seems like a waste to me because i dont mind the look of carbon fibre. I deffinately dont prefer it over a painted hood but thats just my opinion. Neways im not gonna fight with u Oomba, ive been here a few days and i already know how anti-rice u are.
My hood has a dent in it so eventually i plan to replace it but it will prob after i paint my car concorde blue so the carbon fiber look will go pretty well with the blue
Because rice is for idiots.
And being an idiot is a subject I'm sure you have much firsthand information on.
No. Ask captain drift though, he knows all about it.
Who are you referring to?
That is ignorant as hell, that is a pretty good weight decrease for just one thing, just like a flywheel can be lightend to like 8 pounds? I think. You might not notice it but it still is weight saving
Mr. 8 seconds, If you think people buy lightened flywheels to save weight you are sorely mistaken.
No, they buy them to have the rpms rise faster but yes, some do for weight
listen here you canadian... dont be a ricer fag foock that car looks good shiit make it go fast first
well, I'm sure you'll go a long way ... why are you even looking in asian imports? :screwy:
lissen cuz i have a eclipse of my own ps i am three people im gto man and cadilacman and 95 eclipse gsx
then why would you bag him for wanting to make his car look good - what's that in your sig?
that car in his sig is one sick whip.......not really
wel man whats that in yo sig cuz
if you are asking me... its my del sol
its so dark cant tell what tpy e of car it is
yeah i took it the dark on purpose ....goes along with the name
k well my sig is a 95 eclipse
Yeah, my issue is that you bag someone for wanting to make a car look good, while having sig pics of cars that someone has obviously spent time and cash on to make them look good.
If you are all three of them you should get banned, and you remind me of
someone I can't place the name, that used the account Halomaster because
the stupid shit forgot his password :wink2:
EDIT: It was google.com
u forgot idiotman and skytzophrenicwannabman
Why would you ever need 3 accounts for a forum? :screwy:
who's captain drift?
i probably know more about drifting then anyone else here, i do it for fun and as a sport.
