Bride X Cusco Seats Arrive At Last:
87189

Here this is completed and sitting up on the bench. Used old rails for mounting purposes from the eBay seller ShiftUp in San Francisco. Worked like a charm; A good rule of thumb for securing the mounting hardware is to tighten until you hear carbon fiber cracking. Ordered passenger side seat rails since I didn't have any in stock...

Quality for these seats was beyond what I was expecting. Fit and finish is exceptional and for a 'wide' seat they still perform way past my expectations. Expert level construction, with extreme lightness in the carbon fiber aramid weave department. These sit low like a Bride low-max.
87190

I tested these out on the Touge and they hug you like that holding monster they always talk about. I would say worth the wait but I don't like waiting.

All in all 100% satisfied, perfect product-I recommend and endorse.

Imagine that, I'm still working on getting it tolerable ride height wise:

I like it, but, I just don't love it yet...and maybe that's due to the narrow ass 175 wide tires and tall 65 aspect ratio. Yeah, I bet when I mount the Sprint Heart w/ RE-71r Bridgestones combo next summer, THEN I'll be satisfied.

1993 Subaru Impreza "Project Bluebird"


Staged within a stage, nobody will ever truly know the meticulous effort that went into getting this classic Impreza as close to perfect as is possible on this Earth sphere (AND IT STILL NEEDS PAINT, AGAIN!). That's what the reals do with these creations though. Hopefully this journal has been an accurate representation of the amount of heart I've poured into this oldest offspring of mine. There's a few other suspension re-freshes that'll also go into this 'Project Bluebird' within the month also, so don't worry. Baller joints, tying rods up (inside and outside), Cherry Blossum colored swaybars, endlinks, and more, stay tuned.
