Brief update: My wife absolutely loves Toaster, although in the cold it's leaking gas under the intake manifold. That's next on my list of things to do. I threw in a double DIN stereo for her with GPS and Bluetooth, and tossed a dog cage in as well. Now Toaster's about due for brakes, and the suspension has been horrendously similar to the experience you would get on a pogo stick with the cold and the heinous Illinois roads. I believe it to be a combination of the struts not damping properly in the cold or perhaps being worn/blown and the terrible roads buckling with the temperature fluctuation. I've got a few other suspension pieces I'll experiment with when I get time and temperature to do so. I may also end up having the STI struts rebuilt, we'll see.
Yeah, I need to make some padding for the strut bar because the AC line is prone to rubbing against it, but everything else is solid so far. That and I have to take care of that fuel leak under the manifold.
