I like to thank everyone for all the praises towards my progress! Hopefully, i will find time to keep updating you guys further on and to let everyone know i am nowhere near done. That pic Willie posted is just an example of how much further i need to work on the car! :yes: Soo much negative camber though haha its insane!

Looking great, nice work! Any plans to JDM that Saber/TL?
I WAS ahead of you on that;



.......BUT, my friend Dee doesn't believe in adding all these optional JDM parts so now i am going to resell that spoiler, what a waste!:( Basically, the only people who's willing to go far out to doing such things in my club is me and my boy Isiah with the 93' Legend i passed down to him (note the fog lights i put on). And yeah, you could call our club the stock height and OEM crew FTW!!:thumbsup:

Yep, currently in the process with the city. Filed every possible known report including the CHP, but ssssshhhhh its only been noted down @ 70 mph. My insurance was also notified and is in the works to access the damage. Hm....is this is a sign to quit the project and move on:(

lol okay so i was out of town again and surprisingly missed a couple calls from my local dismantler buddy. Luckily, he left me a nice message stating he just received a full Honda Inspire front end knowing that i am a very die hard enthusiast. I came back to town today and headed straight to his place ASAP!!! Checked it out, and omg it was like a dream come true!:bowdown: But before i left last week, i also had a package waiting for me sent from Erik! Thanks soo much man, can't appreciate your help enough! So yes, didnt get to snap much but here are a couple teasers and random shots recently;







:bowdown:

Hey, you're very welcome! It was a lot of fun to track down. That front clip looks great! :thumbsup:
Its funny how my JDM parts in total cost more than what i got the car for :rofl: Its all good though, i'll start working on suspension and such very soon as i'm eying some Eibach coilovers for the vigor somewhere....:yes:. Need to get the bodywork back in shape AGAIN......tsk tsk tsk:( But that shouldn't be too hard, i'll just try to get done with customer cars first so i can have the booth all weekend. Currently, car looks like a hot mess... aka Phase 3.5, everyone who has followed this thread should know all the phases by now :giggle:

Here it is currently


Should've bought this a long time ago


and yes, finally shed some light on my other workplace

I think its time for the upcoming 4th phase of this car. I know, i been taking these breaks but its well worth it everytime i return. Currently, my plans will be realign my entire front end with a JDM CC2 radiator support. Only exterior changes will be the addition of the 91-93 Type I Legend lip mounted flush onto my bumper cover as the look of one peice. Lower profile tires trying to aim for 45 series, not looking to sit on wafer thin tires. KYB full struts and lowering springs just around 1-1.5' drop. Still debating over sideskirts and rear lip. My interior will be with the addition of front and rear VIP tables retrofitted with rear Jaguar tables. Junction produce VIP curtains and pillows will be in order, not to mention 5% rear tint and 25% fronts. I've already received many additions in the past month so let me get to it and reintroduce you guys to get familiar again:yes:

Current:

I loved my car's stance, but it will soon go bye bye:(












All my life, i will be forever surrounded by a Legend; My buddy's Type II


Now, on to the parts;

I don't know what this relates to, but...eh i'll toss it in first


JDM CC2 Front End Radiator Support with Airbag sensor




Original Factory Acura Vigor Black Leather Seats in excellent condition, at Pick & Pull during 50% sale:yes:


So yes, i finally got my center console together. A big improvement for me and a step forward, more to expect for the interior.


So, i met this guy through my workplace and he works at a local Acura Dealer. He realizes how big of an enthusiast i am, so he special ordered some factory Vigor floor mats that were sitting in the main warehouse for $20. Guess what, he drives a Legend but has not joined this forum. Pretty sure these are one of the last ones left :thumbsup:


Factory Acura Vigor Sunroof Visor


Last but not least, Factory Acura Center Caps from uh can't remember. Only got them because they fit my wheels. :yes:

Ugh, so far all the aftermarket hoods that i've seen are very disturbing and riced. There is only 1 that kinda got my attention but it looks soo generic. I'd rather have the true classic lines on the factory hood which gives it definition at a front view.

Here's the hood;


Here's a current shot of my rizzide with the Legend lip just copped today. Simple install with 4 bolts, i will realign the lip to better properly fit it with the bumper. Afterwards will be bondo between the lip and the bumper so give the one peice bodykit look. :yes:



And can't forget the Royal Purple oil changes:woot: Gotta be Purple INSIDE OUT!:yes:

Hey, this is turning into an epic build man! Maybe only one or two Vigors around that have this much work put into them. It's fun reading your updates and seeing some true JDM work being done.

Loving the new floormats, black seats, and airbag sensor, and of course all the purple-ness! Keep up the great work. :thumbsup:

LOL you're too kind, i'm just your everyday jdm enthusiast that happens to love the vigor more than the average owner. I got a special surprise for everyone next month. More parts will be arriving, exterior and interior! I'd like to thank everyone who praised me on this project til this day. Hopefully i'll be finished before thanksgiving with the damn thing, ugh cant believe i'm dragging it this long....pics coming soon!:yes:

Can't wait to see it! (bumping to get this thread above the Paris Auto Show post lol)

Actually, a member on here (Telion) is building up a fantastic twin-turbo Legend, and he's going with all purple accents in the engine bay (and interior also I believe). So you have a kindred spirit out there.

Those CB5's are SERIOUS!!!!!:hitit: Man, i gotta do a lot more if i wanna hang with the big boys and put on for the CC2's!:( That's my objective, maybe i can hang with you later on when my project doesn't pale too much in comparison to your green machine :yes:

Erik; Yeah i peeped his project, it is awesome! Truly inspirational:bowdown:

Okay, so if you guys have been wondering where i've been lately. I haven't gone anywhere too far because of our weather here in lovely Cali. That's pretty much it and reason why i haven't budged on my project either, its too damn cold and windy here, but i will hop on it as soon as we get some sunny days! So, smh to everyone who thought i was down and out with my project:rofl: I did receive some goodies from Japan though recently. Here are the updates for now. Maybe will put in some bodywork this week if i'm up to it :rolleyes:

I'm not kidding about the weather;




Okay, heres what FedEx brought me:thumbsup:


JDM Honda Inspire E-CC2 Red/Clear Tail lights and JDM Digital 2 Piece Climate Control


the other box is of course my JDM Honda Inspire E-CC2 Window Visor Set


Judging by the tail lights, alot of fabrication will be needed.....so i hope my welding skills will come in handy :p
