thanks dude! they fit okay enough to get the job done but they don't fully match the profile of the JDM rails

that whirring noise turns out to be NHV. can hear it coming through the shifter, checked underneath and nothing is rubbing. :/

doing some glue tests.. the headliner spray worked better for holding tight corners, 77 worked better on the plastics.


side skirts on


leftover neoprene from the tail light gaskets to make gas tank access cover gaskets


this should be safe, right? lol



these are to give an idea of where the roof starts changing curvature

so about towing it back after I get it painted...

I'm going to drive it down, thinking the earlier part of september.
I was just going to get a uhaul and trailer and use some of that clear seran wrap type stuff to protect the paint. Is there another service that would do 1 way trips, and have enclosed trailers?

small update.
suede wrapped all the pillars, such a pain in the ass. Glue everywhere.


got OEM fog covers. I think I like the look of the foglights but figured I'd get them before I got painted in case I change my mind later.


the blue strips used to be grey but now they match the interior

bought a cheap knock off igniter and ripped the guts out to make my bypass

potted up


cut a hole in the grommet for the boost gauge vac line to go through. Used a cylinder so it wouldn't squeeze the line at all.


starting trimming the carpet, trimmed too much. put in the JDM sti dead pedal


here's the seats


testing out the suede


bov rattles around a lot. Have to come up with a mounting. For now I just put a piece of rubber hose around the edge where it was interferring with the IC


took it for a 2 hour ride, did perfect. Getting ready for my 20 hour drive to LA.


and some glamour shots

Interior is looking good.
LA for paint? Whats the bypass for? Do you have defrost without your AC in?
Keep up the good work

yeah my friend and his dad paint cars in Los Angeles. He's gonna hook me up.
the bypass is for using 02+ wrx ignition coils, they have coils on the plug instead of one coil for 4 plugs. I'm blowing out spark at 14 psi so this is supposed to give it a much stronger spark.

I haven't tested the defrost yet but I think its a separate circuit.

Sanding....uhhhh

Be glad they don't have it now, were all covered in ash from the fires due to the winds. No sun all day, just a haze. Red sun until 930 this morning until is started to lighten up. Stupid fucktards with a gender reveal party. 8,000 acres gone already

Cannot wait to hear the fine they get and have to pay for life basically
