Pics of my car :)

SO i got my 92 legend last january since then i've done alot of work to it. Keep in mind im only 18, never worked on any car previous to this one and am new to this whole thing. EVerything that has been done to this car has been done by myself.

When i first got it

The current engine. I'm just starting on it. I'm waiting for my new cold air intake to come in so i can finish it. I already hollowed out where the oem intake took air in below the bumper, i also ordered and intake bypass thing so it doesn't get hydro locked. Re-did almost all the vacuum lines. And of course i love spray paint so i painted a ton of stuff lol. 2Morrow morning is junkyard day and hopefully i'll be getting a type II manifold at least and the passenger side isnt the greatest so maybe doors. Let me know what you guys/girls think of it. Also give me some pointers if needed. Please no criticism unless its constructive

Well in my opinion, your car should be unique and stand out from the rest. I mean who wants to drive a car that looks like every other car of the same model except for a different paint job. Sometimes you need to be creative with your car and that's what i did. Maybe its just me though, but i don't really care for fitting in and doing what everyone else is doing. If you can show me another legend that looks even close to my paint scheme i'll shut up, but in the mean time appreciate people who actually stand out. B/c half the time the people who do things differently are the ones who progress in life more than others. I'm not trying to get beef with anyone, just sayin open your mind sometimes to new things. I mean the guy who started this site has a car that's completely yellow and great looking. So i see no problem in my color scheme. And i bet you he'd dig it too, b/c i didn't just go to some paint shop like half of the people do on here and get some basic job done. I busted my ass in an alley (lol) and sanded and painted everything myself. I'm not judging people of the site as a whole I'm just saying alot of times i read different threads and everything people say is according to the book. Like its against the Acura law to have fun ahha Just sayin

thank you tee. I DO admit the car looks ridiculously cheesy lol no denying that but i like it like that. I mean it's not like i just focus on how it looks. I've done the entire exhaust, new headers and cherry bomb muffler. I do agree Legends are nice looking cars and i can appreciate how people want to keep them stock and luxurious appearing. However i just like the ridiculousness things you can do to cars. I enjoy having a car that makes peoples heads turn, and i do understand you can make them turn with a stock legend etc. etc... It's like the Firebird in Night Rider lol People don't necessarily appreciate the car as a firebird in the show, as much they appreciate as the Night Rider car lol I like having that legend that is different like "KIT" I am the KIT of legends hahaha

LOL Ya well I'm 18 and still enjoy the novelty of being able to paint my car and for it to look almost cartoony. I mean I'm not driving it to a proff. job lol So i need not worry about anything with it's looks nor loud exhaust. Well I'm glad i posted them though lol At least now i know i AM the only person with a completely different looking acura legend in this forum
