Finally got her running again and took it for a run around the block and am having overheating issues and a CEL for my really rusty filler neck and my IACV. Other then that its great! Now onto the bodywork

Sold my V5 STI spoiler to a friend and changed my plans a bit. Put the oem GC8 buckets in the RS and the V7 STI seats in the GC8. Will be swapping coils that are on the gc8 for lowering springs it currently has this weekend! Starting on bodywork soon after then I'll be happy with it(for now).

Took her "off roading" and had a blast! Put the V7 STI seats back in! Currently fixing and repainting the V5 wing off the GC8 and going to be mounting it onto the RS.

Haven't updated this in a long time, not too much has changed as she is happily my daily once again! Took her to one of the last shows of the season last year.


Then I finally got to doing my brakes and exhaust.


Also had my V5 spoiler left over from my GC8 so slapped it for a test fit.


And now nothing is really going on since it is winter, just hoarding parts!

So took some time this weekend with it being so nice. Went about changing my diff fluid(some nasty stuff came out haha)


Then replaced my very rusty fuel filler neck(here's the old and the new)


Once that was all done figured I'd install my V5 spoiler and test out my lip to see what it will look like! Also did some engine bay maintenance.

So the week I got laid off my left rear wheel bearing went on the car! The diff had been making alot of humming noises already and so did the bearing so it was a matter of time. Already had a new hub with a pretty new bearing so I just decided to drop the diff and then replace the left hub. Here's some pictures!




(When it's 4am and your diff was being a pain)

So been quite some time since I have updated this thread! Haven't really done a whole lot with her since she has been parked for a little over a year without real access to a garage. But finally brought her home and got to work! I have been looking for a set of wheels to finally flare the car(had the flares for 3 years ;D). When the TinyTankWRX build was parted out I was looking heavily at the wheels but they sold before I could get them. Then they showed up 3 days later on pay day so I went to get them! SO got to the flares over the last few weeks between work. So here is some pictures of everything!

The Wheels.


WAYY too wide for stock fenders!



Cutting the fenders up!



Decided to move my harness up more just incase!



And all installed for now! Need to be painted and "formed" a little tighter and the rear inner fender welded to the outer for some stiffness! Then the rest of my rust dealt with and painted for now. Lots of work to be done! ;D
