Sorry, they aren't currently in the car right now. I bought it off a friend for $50 bucks. Yeah Front seats, back seats and door panels for $50. They are tan/beige (I dunno) in color. My interior is blue/grey. as you can tell, they dont match at all LOL. I took them out so i can have them redone in black and blue/grey hopefully.

It was quite a pain to do actually. It took me about 2 days to do them. NO CUTTING or DRILLING was involved. This means you can slap these babies in another sedan if you wanted to. Basically I took R32 Skyline tail lights, totally demolished my stock tailights, and then using them as a mounting frame for the R32's. The height of the R32's are EXACTLY the height of the Legend tailights. The curvature is however different. So I cut the original lense and cut the corner off the R32's ( was very scary cutting skyline tailights) and grafted them together. All in all, it was very well worth it. They have the sickest glow to them at night and its definately better than ANY Altezza lights.

how did you do the headlights?
That wasn't even as hard as the Tailights.(I smell another HOWTO here).

1. Take off the bumper. There are 4 bolts holding it on.
2. Take off the corner lights (important).
3. Remove all the headlight bolts.
4. Using a flat screw driver, remove the clamps off the headlight.
5. Using a heat gun or blow drier. heat up a portion of the corner of the headlight. You can use Boiling water too if you wanted. thats how I took off the lense off my tailights.
6. Once you have gotten a portion of the headlights to come off, use the hair drier/heat gun to heat up the glue along the remaining portion of the healights while you are GENTLY pulling them apart.
7. Now your headlight cover is removed. Take the screws off the headlight rings and then take them trim off.
8. Paint them in the color you wish. (I chose Chameleon purple green. You cant tell unless you are close. )
9. now reinstall everything once you are done painting.
10. with the hair drier/heat gun again, heat up the glue around the healight. You can use glue if you dont want to re-use the same healight adhesive.
11. after everything is nice an guey, use the clamps that you took off to hold the lense to the headlight. You can put the headlight back on cause these clamps will hold as the glue dries.
12. Now you have painted headlights. I have seen people do it in their car color also. like a read coupe with red headlights.

Those are 4dr customed the tailights to the car not the other way around. It would look kinda wierd if the car was matched to the tailights. Oh I did this like 2 weeks ago. Everything by myself. Including the skyline bumper.

Actually, I knew Rob before he drove the Legend. and No this is not his car. He had a 95. But we had talks about doing custom bumpers before he got rid of his Legend. M5 or IS300 nothing can replace a Legend except a new one.

The coupe seats look better anyways. Plus NO ONE can ride in the back anymore cause of the Cyber Rear bumper. Its a 2 seater Legend Sedan now

Wow, that is truly nice. Good job.

I like the front bumper in the last two pics. Is that the one you got on now?

You should come to the next Socal meet, June 15th in Irvine if you can make it.
