Ok, that makes a lot of sense. I looked at the date of the first post and then felt like shit when I reflected on how long it took me just to get my car repainted and how many parts are still sitting in boxes.

I really appreciated, on and all it took about 2 years. It just happened that when i decided to do the journal the car was at the paint shop.
Yeah I was posting stuff every day until the journal catch up to the current condition. I did all the body work and disassemble the car before I took it to the paint shop. My guy had the car and all the parts done in week and half.

Finally I be able to get rid of them Euro taillights, I was able to get a brand new set of JDM tails. It’s a hella of different. It looks like a classic lady instead of a 5 dollar hooker now.

The tail lights are soooo much better. Looks awesome on Brilliant red, too.
A lot of people don't like that brilliant Red color. Me personally i'm not a lover of red but what i do like is colors in models that are not common. Hence the red, I didnt think it will look this good to tell the true since i did all the body work myself.

I have a Brilliant Red wagon and I was the same, at first I wasn't really wild about the color and only bought it because it was in good shape. It's really grown on me and now I love any red GC/GF.

How do those JBL speakers sound? I have a set of junkyard Infinity References that have absolutely no bass to them. Looking for something else without needing a sub (besides the 2 oem subs I have under the front seats lol)

They don't have massive bass, but they sounds awesome to me. They sound just like my 2019 Tacoma TRD Off Road with the JBL audio package. I went from having two blown speakers to having 6 and it's a hell of a difference. I'm thinking in getting the JBL selfpower sub that goes under the seat just to get that extra bass.

Current status. Locked away collecting dust. I’m moving about an hour away from my work and the shop. Once the move is finish I be able to keep working on the car and be able to put it back on the road. After some research it seems that I need to replace the trailing arms. When I did the 6-speed swap I transfer everything from my JDM STI forester and I didn’t know but the trailing arms of the Fozzy and longer and making my rear wheels not to be center, hence I need GD trailing arms. It hasn’t bother until now because it causing the rear wheels to very close to the rear bumper not allowing me to fully use the suspension. Luckily there is no potholes here in Germany but once I get going in the autobahn I know that any bump will cause the rear wheels to rub on the rear bumper.

Finally took advantage of the long weekend and I was able to work on the car. I was able to fix the rear suspension geometry since I did my drivetrain swap from a JDM STI forester the rear trailing arms were a bit too long and it was pushing the rear wheels closer to the rear bumper and it was hitting when I was going fast. So I was able to find a used set out of a 04 STI and took advantage and change the bushing for some whiteline bushings. It’s much better now, specially since it gave me more room in rear I was able to install the JDM corner pieces.
