Congrats on the progress! I know how hard it is to keep motivation even on a smaller project, so I don't know how you do it. It does look great though.

thanks, sir!
Dash should go in this weekend and then I'll be forced to work on the engine shortly after that.

Gonna open up the ring gaps and replace my valve seals and then put it all back together.

with extra chocolate chips!

Dash is in, a cluster fuck of wiring to sort through. Got the wrx pedals in too.






When I swapped from the older style dash (no airbag) one connector on the harness is different. It looks like the wires are the same colors so I should be able to just repin I think. DOES ANYONE KNOW?

this one is from the 94 dash


and this is the one that was originally in the car


Also trying to figure out where I want to mount my boost gauge. Leaning towards the pillar mount.
Thoughts?




And since I didn't want ot deal with the wiring today I mounted my SYMS replica upper wing

I always prefer them on the pillar. Boost and egt. That way I can see them with my eyes still up. Ymmv.
Course that's where my first turbo vehicle came with them there so maybe I am just use to them being there.

Not a fan of Pillar mount. Just one more direction to look when you're gettin' it.
