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.
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!

UPDATED PAGE 4
owned this 2.5rs for about 7 years. Rushed to get it after selling my 08 wrx. Did not do a carfax on it, i just bought it with no research.
Later found out it was involved in an accident or 2, was pretty bummed about that. but i finally got a 2.5rs like i've always wanted.
It finally happened, after a year long search I found an RS!
I ended up selling my 2002 Civic Si to a buddy of mine from work for a buddy price and the day after this gem popped up on Craigslist. I immediately contacted the owner approximately 15 minutes after the ad went up...
Lets get to the point.
Donor car: 2005 sti slightly modded.
Was fun while it lasted.
Fun in the snow.
And on the track.
Then some water happened along with a crazy idea and this was purchased.
and the FUN begins.
