"Crooked Eye" My 1990 Legacy got some work done to her

Recommended Posts

Well here is what she looked like when I brought her home

installed amp under driver seat and threw the sub in the back.

I call her "crooked eye" because she has a tweaked frame up front causing the driver side headlight to be a little higher than the right side.

 

I put 2 amber marker lights behind the grille as additional blinkers because the markers have been converted to blinkers and annoy me because of the fast flash. plus blinkers behind the grille are cool. :grin:

 

 

Also my technique for restoring the headlights is VERY simple. wet sand with 800, then 1000, then clean well and let dry. tape off and spray clear. it fills what little scratches are left and protects the headlight from UV damage later on.

Looks awesome! I wish I could still find gen one legos in that nice of shaper where I live, I also dig the black looks really clean. Congrats on another sick ride!

Thanks. our neighbors think we are all bats#!t. we live in texas, in a rural area, (think god-fearing rednecks) and have a camo gl (blending in car) a forester, my lego and my roommate's RHD postal (behind my car in pics) along with a 07 dodge ram, my 67 chevy project and a 93 burban. they always pronounce them soobaroo's :lol: I changed the driver fender because though it looked good, the bottom was non existant due to rust.

Luckily mine had just had the whole front clip replaced with new metal before I bought it and the PO spend around 4000 on repainting it and replacing parts 2 years before I got it with a bad alternator and a wrecked door! By the way our cars match, just mine has some purple to it!

Mine didn't I added those along with seats, and suspension from the same car (mine originally had those junk air struts) it's getting a five speed swap (lifted with the auto and 3.90's is killing me), and tube bumpers this summer while I have it off the road and am driving my wrx or me ea81 :banana: Keep us posted on progress you did some fine work with your last car, can't wait to see how this one turns out :)
