    98 Honda Prelude - OEM look

    Hi all. I've been working on this for quite some time and have finally been able to finish it up. Wow, what a difference an amp makes. Still working out a few bugs but all in all it's all set. Pretty much everything I could put in it: GPS, Griffin Powermate for volume and mute, Sony Xplod amp and speakers, HD Radio, bluetooth, hands free for the phone, 802.11, diNovo Mini, blah, blah. Just wanted to put up some pics and say thanks to all that have posted their little tricks and stuff about products to use and ideas. Any questions on anything just let me know. E.M.





    I was trying to make it look as stock as possible.



    Start of the skin I'm going to be using, takes a lot of hints from the stock stereo I just took out. I haven't made my decision on the front end yet.

    Not much different. I integrated the Powermate into the ashtray and grafted the faceplate of the Dynamix screen to the bezel. (Not my picture but mine looked the same before I started)

    Looks clean -- Whats your backend look like? I mounted a MicroATX setup and amp in my trunk on the floorboard. Its kind of annoying as I lose even more of the minimal trunk space available to us =)

    Keep up the clean work... If you produce that skin for CF drop me a line... Looks nice.

    Ah, forgot all that stuff in the trunk. Jim, there is actually a good size area on the passenger side just forward of the tail lights. It's more than big enough for a pc it's just not practical if you have to take it out. I put everything on the back of the rear seat just for the fact that I can take it all out very quickly if I need to work on it or if just need to pop the case I can lean the seat forward and I have convenient access. I rarely ever use the trunk let alone have the back seat folded down.

    Good deal. I was going to do that route with mounting onto the back of the seat. I finished my deal about 2 years ago now and kinda just left it as is. I was going to make a fake wall between the seat and trunk to enclose the amp & case... Never got around to it =P

    The pray-lewd just rolled 140,000... 110,000 miles in 3 years so I will prolly hold off to doing anything else. I replaced the exhaust, suspension, and put HID's into the headlights over the past few years on her... Tanabe SHM exhaust, Tanabe springs on KYB agx's for the suspension. Basically each component needed to replace so I just changed to aftermarket =)

    Oh well. 5G power.
