    New hobbyist from Finland

    Greetings from Finland.

    Just recently got a project Legnum VR4 1996 that has transmission problems. Still need to assemble the new transmission and after that can get to assessing the car properly.

    The car it self has been almost a daily driver for quite a while to previous owners, but has been sitting with the broken transmission for a bit over six months. Also at least two previous owners did not do the best work on keeping it in shape, so some rust here and there, some pain chipping in some areas and engine bay has some slightly DIY aspects to it. But all in all seems to be in fine condition to drive and a good start for a project car.

    Been into Legnums for as long as I have been able to drive, so when this came to sale with price in my range I just had to get it. Been reading here quite a bit and have just too much things I would like to do to the car, but have to prioritize getting it to road first.

    Car has a HKS SQV4 dump, 3" exhaust after the down pipes and a oil cooler for the transmission fitted.

    Hello and welcome!

    You've found the best collection of resources and people when it comes to VR-4's, so you're definitely in the right place!

    Looking forward to seeing photos etc as you work on it!

    Thanks! Been lurking here for a few years on and off, but now I actually have something to use the resources on. Actually got the paid membership before making the deal on the car even.

    Was hoping to make some documentation on the progress to possibly do some writeup, but got too excited doing the project and didn't take enough pictures.
