Hey folks, been busy with work. but have tried to get into it when i can.
but for the most part? Parts shopping. to get geared up for Saturdays in spring.
I have ordered:
A complete Gasket kit. New OE STi Clutch kit,New brake bleed nipples,and brake hose to strut clips.Also i have been scouring "Up Garage" and Yahoo Auctions for the parts i need. but more on that later.
To get busy on the interior, i found that while i was painting another car? i lost my no.2 screwdriver. so? Treated myself to a new one.
Big KTC fan. good tools.
On Monday, a couple came over for lunch, and to help me with the car for a few hours. we got the car up on stands. and good lord,
These jack points have seen better days. they will need repair. (hammered out,rust treated, and painted) it will happen.
but there is some good stuff under here.
The Kakimoto Stainless/Titanium exhaust, and Cusco body braces.
so, there is some hope for this car yet. . .
The Dude helped me with the wheels,
and the lady helped me in the interior.
new shift boot really lifts the interior.
The shift knob was replaced a while ago, and i have a fresher steering wheel (pictured) with the fresh floor mats? this will be a nice place to sit. -can't wait to get it all done and detailed for you guys.
yup. the discs and struts are toast.
so i prepared these Discs last year, and earlier this week picked up the Project Mu hoses, and SpeedMaster Brake fluid. i normally use Wako's. but will try it out.
While swapping out the lines, i noticed that they use factory clips to mount to the strut. and the mounts are all out of shape. also, the brake nipples are rounded from people not using the right tools. so i headed down to the Subaru parts desk, and the kind folks ordered me some new ones. a complete set, front and rear, should make bleeding the brakes so much easier. but the struts?
Still searching. i couldn't get the brakes done in one day, but there is always Saturday.. . . . .
Still shopping for struts.
Also, before letting the car down? i went to the hardware store, and got a slotted rubber mound for the jack, dubbed Ol' Squeaky. so no more crunch.
Stay tuned. more fun stuff is in the works.
thanks for reading.
