My BB8 SIR

Post by gordonlear » Sun Dec 28, 2014 12:10 pm

Back in 2007 i was looking at getting an integra, so after looking at them and my budget not matching the price of them i came across this Prelude freshly imported at Southampton docks.

After a trip to southampton and talking to the forth coming wife i purchased the car without even test driving in. Gamble or what! A mate gave me a lift down to Southampton and i drove it back only insured under the vin number and a MOT booked at a local garage the same day. But first i had to fit the fog light. Once i had the mot it was a trip to Bristol to get the car registrated.

I have taken the car Japfest a few times,the first time i took it was with Lude Behaviour and the car ended up on the Meguiars stand at Japfest

I also took part in a couple of Miss Banzai London tunnel runs which were brillant fun.

After joining forums like LB, PUK i started to learn that the car had some rare bits on it like the bonnet spoiler, wheel caps, jdm sat nav screen, honda of america badges and honda access suspension.

In 2011 the auto box failed, i started the search for a donor car and found one with a recently reconditioned auto box. Yes i know most people convert to manuals but i like the auto and wanted to keep things simple and original.
Image

With the help of Honda Hardy and M@dds help me remove the engine and gearbox from the donor car.

The next stage was to install the donor box into my car. This is a job i could not of done with out help my fellow LG's.

Donor wheels where put on the car for the mot but the car now sits on the alloys that came with the car.

The donor car was them stripped for donor parts and keeped or sold on.

Over the years the car has pretty much stayed as i the way it was on the day i brought it i have only added a rear reversing camera and changed the side indicators.

The car is currently sorn in my garage due to a growing familys and finances but i am looking at getting it back on the road in for the 2015 show season.
