spent over 2 hours the other day cleaning it. i drove her home, washed the outside, then spent about 1.5hours vacuming out the car and wiping everything down. including removing the consol and such to soak in simple green. also fixed and charged the a/c so its working now.

the girl that owned it was clearly a smoker and pot head, i found like 3 joints under the center consol and i hate how they used the coin holder as a ash tray. also under the drivers seat alone there was enough old french fries to fill a McDonalds large fry thing.

the interior was discusting. but now she is all clean and smelling good. monday morning she gets the new windshield also i hope to be grabing up a set of eibach wrx wagon springs sunday (tomarrow) and get those on the car as well as a set of 02/03 wrx wheels.

Nice updates! That h-brace will sure keep things solid. I think you could go with a bigger rear sway bar than 18mm.

small update, got my MY98 bumper on with the home de-pot front lip, leveled out the suspension so it looks better, got my steering wheel in, polished my stock muffler, and got my rallitek poly tranny mount in and boy a world of difference that made.
