Description
Updated July 28/2017-1995 Sedan L.
Name of car has been downgraded to...blu. Oleblue was the initial name before and now after a couple years the vision I had has come to fruition and Oleblue doesn't even apply anymore my Legend is so different. Many members on here and Facebook to thank for sure!
Purchased in 2004 (second G2 Legend- my first Legend I was not really an enthusiast, just kept it clean and it was already blowing out blue smoke when I bought it in 1999 which now I know all to well were the valve seals. I gave to my nephew as his first car when I bought Oleblue (now in 2015; just "blue" is the name) from original owner with 110K (close anyway).

Original color was Desert Mist which I really liked, but the paint started fading and peeling quickly-Tennessee sun most likely or a less than steller day at the factory when car was orginally painted in 1994, and subsequently in 2008, I had it painted a light shade of blue which is my fav Legend color. I set out to have it painted an oem color Twilight Blue, but when I got to paint shop, I 100% couldn't remember the name of color so I randomly chose Suzuka Blue. Which incidentally craziness, is the exact color of the famous light blue on the early S2000s. Still odd of all the colors of blue to choose from I chose that shade. But I definitely dig it.

Modest (less modest now-lil beastly now 04/2014) modifications include: Stromung on the way and will be selling my RemusLegendSpecificExhaust (officially a full exhaust system), OBX Headers (no cat ;.}, Stromung b pipe, WeaponR CAI...thanks Kelly, sr5guy stageIII ecu chip-thanks Matt!, aluminum lightweight crank pulleys-Thanks TJ, Abe, and Legendracer!!!. H&R lowering springs, Koni reds, Konig Oversteer wheels, Nitto Motivo 215/45/17 all season performance tires, tint, custom Legend seats-big thanks Kelly!!!.

Dec 2014-Type II intake manifold swapped in and getting a bored throttle body soon.
Jan 2015-Fut Tower Bar installed and what a difference in handling it has made.

**Mini bbk-Type2 calipers (red) and RL brackets-thanks Alan Jackson! 04/2014 Stoptech slotted rotors, and Hawk HPS brake pads.

****update Sept/Oct 2013: BHG/SHG/Valve Seals ... Oleblue overheating multiple times; blue and white smoke.
Found a member in my area finally... "Chopped," who is a jack of all trades at a Honda/Acura sales and repair in La Vergne, TN.
**So, top half engine rebuilt 10/2013 Runs terrifically now.

Lots of stuff to add now. Wow. 7/28/2017

4/2018--Yellow calipers from red which I was tired of and was surprised the yellow flowed as well as they do...IMHO anyway. Along with a lot of suspension work done. And new brake pads on all 4.

You sign up for a lot of shi* when you lower a 23 year old car and daily drive it. 312K currently on the odometer. Original C32a Type I/II cyborg hybrid and still runs well but most def has lost some compression. Hope to go C35 by fall 2018.

The one pick of Ole Blue, in the middle of my office parking lot, is the shot to me that said, you did a pretty good job Midge on choosing the mods/goodies on Blue. Kinda that moment of arrival.
I'll tell ya though, with Legends, you could never get finished, ever, doing all the little subtle things we can do. E.g. like, switching out speedometer for example.
