Well, the 6 speed is almost done. Save for getting not only the wrong rear axleshaft, but incorrect ebrake shoes as well, things went well (apparently parts stores don't know there is a difference between a 2004 STi and WRX). Tomorrow I finish up the brakes, attach the exhaust, and button up all the misc little items. Hopefully I'll have the axleshaft and I will be able to drive it! Long day.
