With no fresh parts I'm left to just think, which is good sometimes since I get better ideas when I have 9 chances to look without building.
I think I figured out a solid removeable mount for the diff using some 1x2 tube and an energy 3.2126 bushing. I'll cut a plate that uses stock bolts and mount the plate to underside of diff, then run the tube up to the same cross pipe Im mounting trailing arms to. Then I can fine tune the driveshaft angle and weld it all in place
Subbed, this is a heroic build thread! Can't get much more custom than full tube from scratch. Really curious to see what all of the Foz gets reused in the end.
But Autocad?? Even sales nerds like me at least use SolidEdge!
Bought lol. I work for an industrial steel fabricator. I just pay wholesale for steel, or sneak some parts in the fall off peices we burn for jobs.even the tightest nest leave lil spots I can stick a gusset before the drop goes in the scrap bin.
Started adding some triangles, the thing already feels super stiff and it's barely welded.
The time has finally come for me to organize a members journal! Ive been a member here since I purchased my 98 2.5RS in late December of 2005. My car, not unlike myself, has been through a lot since then and made many changes. And now, upon organizing parts and information for my swap, I...
This is going to be the tale of my second rs build.
I purchased for 2k the catch is that it had a blown head gasket...12/1/14 also found some rod bearings were bad too. instead of putting more cash into the current 2.5 i went apeshit AND bought a jdm full sti swap and copious amounts of clean...
picked me up another chassis. $600 and it runs, mostly!
Still have the ej20g, gearbox, RobTune and iWire harness, stance coilovers (I had just bought to replace my godspeed crap) and lots of other parts... so here we go again!
From the ashes, she will rise!

This is mostly the progress of my srp 2001 L coupe, but also some 98L and 2018 brz stuff.
I got the car in August 2011 with 100,500 miles. It was my first car, and it had lots of problems at the start. Almost sold it a few times, but once I read about all the swap stuff, I...
This is the second member's journal that I'm making, in part because nobody here pays attention to non-swapped RS journals, and partly because this really is the second phase of this car.
The old member's journal can be found here: Razor7's homebuilt 2000 RS
I also want to document an...
