Legacy Bored with the legacy.

I just pulled my legacy out of winter storage a couple of weeks ago. I had been dieing to do this since the day after i put it up for winter storage. It is always the thing i dread most about the car. having to not be able to play with it for so long. And then when i pulled it out, i just got extremely bored with it. it hasnt had anymore major mods in about a year and half. But i dont have a whole lot of funds right now to do some of the major work i want to. I cant think of anything relatively cheap and quick to do. so guess the question is, Any ideas? What can i do to make it more appealing to me again? i used to love taking it everywhere i went. but now i could care less if we take the leg or the fiance's car.

there is always more money to play with when there is no wifey around. but sometimes she is more fun than the car. i was thinking around the $150-200 range.

what do you have done to the car? I'm not familiar with yours, but apparently you have a custom paint job.

Were the Legacy's EVER exciting?

Racing my 89 VW Cabriolet and my 96 Legacy 2.2L would be like watching Timmy and Jimmy fighting - hilarious.

thanx for some of the suggestions. i really like the write up on changing the interior panels. doesnt seem to be too difficult. or too expensive. think i will try and see from there. and here are a couple of quick pics.

Looks like you need two things...

1. Polish those headlights!!!

2. Get new brakes or at least paint the calipers

Yup. Polish the headlights and maybe change up the grill? The plastic fins pop out. The chrome isn't the highest quality by any stretch of the imagination, so the little black rub tape along the bottom of the grill has the chance to rip the chrome off. Best to heat it up enough to get it off. Also some stuff about grills on SL-i

I was gonna say try Wal Mart but you guys don't have one in Vermont (props, btw, go small business!).

You should be able to find some fabric stuff online.

well, if you are bored of THAT car, you must be nuts. That is a nice looking ride. Have you thought about tinting your windows? It looks like you already shaved your stereo antenna?!?

Ooh I'd paint that license plate fram black. It looks all rusted and corroded in the pics (from what I can tell anyway). JDM rears and clear corners up front would look trick too.

I agree that it was supposed to be a joke. Obviously you wouldn't take anything under $1,100...
