    3600 lbs!? Wow haha. I thought my '89 Prelude was heavy at 2900 lbs. Congrats on the new ride!

    RockAuto is great. Sign up for the wholesaler closeout alerts for your car(s), I just got a ton of parts for $100 off there due to closeout sales.

    Yeah the 3600lbs is a guess going off of the owners manual stating the total load of passengers and cargo cannot exceed 850lbs. So a rounded off number of that subtracted from the gross vehicle weight.

    Hey man luxury vehicle aren’t light lol.

    Watched this and thought of this thread, can't believe the Legend had soft close doors in 1994.

    I’ll have to see if my car has soft close doors. That would be badass if it Did.


    Side note is my rock auto order came in today!!! It was scheduled to ship here Tuesday but damn three days early is good with me.

    So the plan is to start with jacking the car up and

    -drain oil and replace oil filter, drain radiator and remove upper and lower hoses and plug ports with towels
    -while oil is draining replace the PCV valve and start replacing the spark plugs while the oil is draining
    -then start taking apart the front of the engine to get to the timing belt.
    -inspect front main seals and cam seals and replace if I can get them out lol
    - replace cabin air filter if I get overwhelmed and need a break from being under the car
    - get back to the timing belt and water pump replacement.
    -replace the thermostat while it’s all apart and before it put it all back together with new accessory belts also.

    I have an intake manifold gasket set and valve cover gaskets I am saving for another time.

    Lastly install new air filter and perforate stock air box for a custom NRD intake system.
