well its about time i got one of these up so ill start with a little history on the car and then into what i plan more for her.

1994 3.5HO ES....family got the car at 70k miles in 2008 for 3000 with a transmission that would go into limp mode every few weeks, i was 16 when i got it in 09 and drove it for about 6-9 months till the trans finally called it quits at around 78k, not having the money for a trans to be put in by a shop my dad got me a rebuilt 98 trans and said its up to you to put it in. threw it in followed chilton by the book and the trans has not givin me another problem yet. forward 3 years and up to about 103k and ive gotten a misfire that ive been working on for months with no check engine light and odd symptoms but thats another thread.

body is in good (i wouldnt say great or perfect) condition with no rust few chips on the front end from freeway and a scrape from previous owner by rear wheel well.

interior i would say is in great condition it has been obviously kept out of the sun with no cracking in the leather and it is still soft not firm, no spots on cabin roof and carpet is in decent condition. while the tint is all fadded purple and scratched to hell.

since the transmission swap ive been making sure to keep maintenance up and keep the leather in good condition.

MODS
---------------------------------
1)jvc deck, two 10" sony Xplod subs with 1100max, 500 RMS (2ohm) hitron amp (havnt tested how much db it puts out)
2)plastidip on door handles, gas tank cover, and all the plastic black borders around doors. for a for flat look i didnt much like the glossy plastic.
3)trans mount reinforcing mod.

Planned mods
--------------------------
1) intake spacer
2) thinking about trying a CAI/RAM intake but need to look into it more
3) Autostick
4) red LED's to go with the JCV deck lighting
5) move battery to the trunk (i guess its a mod)
6) retint rear/back windows to 20%(or lower) and front to 70% (dumb cali laws but not worth ticket)
7) may plastidip rims to see how it looks i hate the bronze look of the stocks
8) blacked out seats
now some pixs :D

you can see our 97 C-class next to mine in this pic (thats my next project)








under the hood, i got it really clean when i did the intake manifolds gasket


Some interior...








an the deck

Second gen does swap with some creative work... the fronts are a direct swap over - not sure about the power connector though. As for rears - you have to remove the upholstery clips from the bottom seat base frame, and swap the metal frames over. There may be a few of the clips you have to trim for different grid placement, but it isn't overly complicated. Then, for the seat backs, you have to adjust the bolt tabs and top clips - nothing some time with a cutter and welder couldn't solve... or other creative solution. Not impossible, but not direct.

They do fit the body well though.

well since i've got that misfire fixxed ive had time to mess around, when i pulled my BCM, looking for the misfire i decided to paint the entire lower dash to a dark black, this last week my A/C mode door actuator decided to die stuck on defrost, so i had to take out center and decided hell ill finish my paintjob, i did the B and C pillars as well as all the floorboards (the A pillars are already black stock) i personally love how it all came out



here i left the glove box original color i kinda like the offset and it shows a good before/after





here as well i left the slider and belt cover original color.







and the stuff i used.



i did 3 coats on the floorboards, dash, and center, and 4 on the B, and C pillars because they are a more vanilla color stock, while the others are a light grey.

now i need to get me some sexy 2nd gen black seats
