Update time, we moved house and had another kid so the Prelude was put on the backburner. Things have settled down again so I can finally get back into the workshop again.

I found a Motegi kit complete with wheels. It's the same colour as my car but it needs painting. The wheels needed a refurb too, I've just finished those.

I'm hoping to get it back onto the road in couple of months. I haven't fitted the ATR intake manifold yet, it's on the list along with a few other bits and bobs I've collected for it over the years.

Got a few more bits done over the last few weeks.
New Iridium plugs, good leads, 02 sensor, distributer cap and rotar. I changed the fuel filter today too, that was a tricky bastid to do.
My friend threw me the keys to his new workshop, the luxury of having a ramp to use and not doing stuff off your back, I didn't know myself.

Over the next few days I'll be doing the timing belt, tensioners, water pump, clutch kit and the LSD gearbox.

Then it'll be time to book a test and finally get her back on the road after about 4 years!

good work on replacing the ignition components, they usually never get replaced!

When I changed mine a couple of weeks ago (changed a few years ago also), i noticed that the rotor arm retaining screw had come loose and wore its way into the distributor guard plate. I'm pretty sure id have done it up tight enough when I fitted it. This time, a drop of blue loctite to secure the screw was added.

I'm pretty sure the last 2 rotor arms i fitted were blueprint ones, but I'm not sure if hey are 100% correct. The rotor arm fits to the end of the distributor shaft, and has a flat machined into it. The thing that struck me as strange was that the screw hole on the distributor arm was on the non flat part, but on the curved part of the shaft. It would seem more secure if the flat part of the rotor arm and the flat part of shaft were screwed together.

Maybe mine was just a one off, but thought id warn you.

Fair play for spotting that was BluePrint rotar! I gave it a good check compared to the one it replaced and it seemed a very good match for it.
I wish I'd thought of the damn Loctite though.
I splashed out on a can of 44k too bit I'm gonna wait until I get it out on the road again first so it go through it at pace.

My pal is getting stuck into the bodywork for me. The skirts I bought were damaged on the corners.
It's looking like I'll have the Lude kitted out and all the mechanicals done by the end of the week. I can't wait.
