After deciding to break my Type-S for parts (build thread here) I was searching for another Type-S or a S-Spec. Even tried to contact some people in Japan to get one imported but there wasn't any decent one for sale. All were either high mileaged or just had bad body work.

Picked up Aaron's S-Spec today and his build thread can be found here -> Aaron's S-Spec

I paid the deposit and promised to buy it even without seeing it, :shock: :twisted: and picked it up today.

I haven't driven a Prelude in over 6 months so was excited and this is the photo to prove it.

Bad bits -
Exterior - Bonnet, roof and both bumpers will definitely need a respray.
Interior - Couple of scratches in the dash, Speed cluster's has cracks in some places, scratches in the CF panels, Both power folding mirrors don't work, one headlight was intermittent, that silly rear fog light that hangs in the back, seat belt doesn't retract and it's slacking and the door sill is really loose that it's letting in noise once doing over 45+mph.
Brakes - will need some new discs and pads all round as it was swirling all over the place under heavy braking.

Good bits -
Engine/LSD - really good low mileage one, pulls really well in all gears and doesn't smoke at all.
Chassis - Apart from some surface rust there is no actual proper rust like my old one.

Some pictures of the bad bits and the whole car.

Luckily, I've kept most of the things from my old Type-S that I thought I might need in the future so I will straight away swap out the fully working Power folding mirrors, Front lip, Side skirts and the rear lip on this one. Along with the body work that I will have to do I will get them to put the Bonnet spoiler on there too.

I was thinking to put my OEM Type-S wheels back on there but these DC5 wheels have started growing on me. Maybe I'll get them refurbed and get some new nuts on there as the current ones are rusty.

Glad you're pleased with it.

Did you keep the corner lights off your old one? Are they getting transplanted?
