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.
Welcome to my Members' Journal. As with other Journals on this board, this will serve to document the buildup of my car, from the purchase in 2005 to the present.
More than just listing modifications, I will use this thread for discussion and to "think out loud." This will not only help me...
I've had my 2.5 RS a couple of months now and I've decided to start a build thread, hoping it's going to help me get this thing over the finish line.
This RS is my 4th Subaru
My first was a Catalunya special edition, the car I wish I still had, hence the mid-life crisis build :D
2nd was an...
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!

Bought it as a 2012 Christmas/New Years gift to myself after my old cars transmission decided to **** out the counter shaft in the transmission. It had 186,000 miles and was bone stock. I'm sure the automatic transmission assisted in its easy life.
As of Aug,2016 it has 236k miles on...
The story of this car starts in a galaxy far away and probably not interesting to anyone. It was born in Japan, sold in USA, been to Canada and later shipped to Russia. From there it traveled to Germany to hit the "green hell". It has been through many stages and transitions of identity crisis...
