Prelude Write Ups

While working on my Honda Preludes, I've learned a thing or too, and had a lot of fun. I know there are a lot of other people out there who have a similar passion for Preludes, and it would be a really big shame if I didn't share what I have learned with them. I encourage you to read what myself and others have written. This hobby should be all about sharing, and appreciating what others have done. Turn those wrenches.
