Picked up a 93L. One owner out of FL. Itís a 1.8L autotragic but weíll get to that later.
Lots of research still going on regarding which direction to take the engine. Iíd like an H6 but this may end up boosted depending on how the next year pans out. Planning for a fun reliable DD.
Hereís how she looked the day I bought her.
Hereís the underwhelming bay shot
...and the interior, which will be replaced as i can find bits. I hate the Old Man Tan.
Just under 98k on her.
From here she actually cleaned up pretty well. Paint was chipping near the rear hatch and there were a few bumps and bruises.
Picked up a donor RS to convert the car to a newer look.
Had the interior out of the L instantly. I assumed I could swap the newer dash with the RS but being a phase one engine I donít have the option of powering the car off the RS ECU. So that will get swapped along with the engine.
Grabbed these to go back in. The Old Man Tan seats had nothing in the area of bolster support. I have a lot of the RS black indoor but this interior is going to drive me batty until itís uniform.
Trimmed the L front bumper beam to accommodate the V4 bumper but Iíll be watching for the correct support to show up locally.
Picked up a BNIB Bumper Cover from the stealership. This one got me to the paint.
JDM tails and rear bumper...
From there she went straight to paint...and that was July.
