    My arabian '87 Prelude 2.0Si

    Last december I bought the third car for my little old school Honda collection.
    A friend owned this car for a while, but he didn't have the time to bring it to his former glory, so he offered it to me - and now it's mine. :mrgreen:

    This car was first registered in February 1987 in Kuwait, and that imported to Germany in summer 1990. Since than two old men owned it befor my friend bought it.

    It's an KY-spec. (Saudi-Arabian market) model, so it's a combination of the USDM and the JDM models. So it's a 2.0 12V with PGM-Fi and 120hp (no catalytic converter), LHD car with stuff like the JDM cromax glass, JDM corner and tail lights and the rear bumber with the small license plate and the stock spoiler from the USDM 2.0Si.

    Here's what it else has:
    - an english version of the "Electric Navigator"
    - power steering
    - cruise controle
    - electric antenna
    - A/C
    - power windows
    - power mirrors
    - electric sunroof
    - adjustable steering colum with memory light
    - Hondamatic 4AT
    - leather steering wheel
    - Pioneer 4 speaker audio system
    - 13" factory mesh alloys (incl. spare tire)


















    I'll working on restoring that old beauty and maybe add some nice goodys as well.
    So far, I bought some NOS parts (like seals, mirror glasses, turn signals), installed an K&N replacement air filter and did a little here and there.

    That's a great car! Love that eighties-interior. I've never seen such a tripcomputer in a Honda.

    They where available on most Hondas back in the days - but mainly in Japan. I've just seen japanese ones so far...

    Very nice Prelude! Good luck restoring it! It looks like it should only need minor restoration.

    In between I got some new parts. A few NOS bits like another door seal, a mirror glass, etc.. As well I got a set of the bigger exhaust deflectors and some auto cover fog lights

    And here are some pictures from the last meet - the Honda Car Classics meeting in Gelsenkirchen, Germany at the beginning of this month.

    I love the backlighting on the instrument cluster & center stack. Thanks for showing us the close-up of the Saudi door tag; very interesting.

    In between I collected a few more parts. New speakers, because the old ones are worn out and a NOS front emblem.




    Today I took my NOS turn signal and transformed it into a "replica" of the JDM smoked ones :P Because painting brand new and hard to score parts I wrap then in foil. This will also prevent them from future stone chips And it looks amazing for me
