Remember me? Yes I'm still here after I posted my 08 timeline! I did mention that I have something in store for 09. Since I made that last thread, I have bought 3 more legends, a 92 charcoal/ black L sedan, a wrecked 94 L 6-speed coupe, and finally a cashmere 94 L 5-speed sedan. I was originally planning on putting the 6-speed type II from the coupe into the the charcoal sedan, but after doing the brake master cylinder, I have decided that it runs too nice to be swapped. I happened to be browsing craigslist one day and found a 94 L sedan 5-speed with 141k with some defects for a reasonable price, so I snapped it up. Since the car is already a manual, it makes life much easier for me. At that point I had 3 Legends all around my house. I finally towed the coupe away after I stripped it down, giving me the space to start on my next victim, the 94 5-speed. I plan on replacing the transmission with the 6-speed because the 5-speed's reverse gave out. Here are some pictures to start you guys off:
The body does show some defects, but nothing a new hood and trunklid cannot fix. I've also installed JDM headlights with 5000k HIDs already.
Some kids jumped on the trunklid when the old owner parked in a bad neighborhood.
141k, thats the original mileage! I already swapped the 160mph gauges and type II tach over.
only the drivers seat shows any major defects. The leather is still really soft overall.
So in the next couple of weeks, I will be posting updates in this thread depending on how motivated I am to work on it. Stay tuned!
