Thought I would share these since they were at subiefest last year and were pretty awesome I don't take credit for any of the work done to these cars.

Thanks for lighting a fire under my ass smurfy.
I was amazed at how rough the bay was after shaving out the battery pedestal.. I felt like I had no choice but to replace the metal. But, I had some rust from water sitting under the pedestal.

I drove with my fuse box in my fender like that forever... no issues. I had mine mounted upside down though so if anything did get wet it wasn't pooled up in there. You can also use an electric box like brcewayne did to cover it.

I'm going to be making a box similar to Brcewayne's to contain my fuse box, and a couple other goodies I have under the hood.

Should've just found an IC sprayer tank for the trunk, so it would've been hidden. And hooked the lines to the windshield sprayer. Did it in my STI, worked great

Perfect! I didn't even think of that. I took out the I/c sprayer and most of the lines :/ I guess I'll reroute em lol do you use the I/c sprayer button to actuate it? Or did you run the wires from the windshield reservoir pump to the I/c sprayer pump?

Run the wires, it's easier than running the small hose.

Post a pic of an engine bay you like and I'd be more than happy to photoshop it whatever color! I'll do it tomorrow though.

Well.... mine isn't ready yet... I suppose there is no greater WRB (sorry, I know "Blurple") example than D Money that I can think of.

I recently did my in WRB. But my pictures of it suck. No shaving. It's not my thing. I just wanted a super clean bay.

kpluiten, I was going to say I was surprised you didn't have any rust under/around your battery tray, but I guess you live in Arizona so that's not a problem

For now not running hydra or using an aftermarket BCS, has anyone run a longer line between the restrictor pill and BCS in order to hide the entire BCS mess under a TMIC? Thinking about this in my head...

Anyone know where I can find a m10x1.0 IF tee? I can't seem to find one and the vendor referred to in the forums is no longer in business.

This is for linking the rear brakes into the ABS delete I'm working on.

Blammo, found it.

Alright, not done but I do feel like I've reached a solid milestone. Everything deleted except for A/C, P/S, and ABS, since this is a true DD. In the future I will probably delete AC and ABS if I can pick up some other DD on the cheap.

Learned a lot in this process over the course of many many months, doing portions of this a few hours at a time (or large chunks of time for soldering). Definitely a newfound respect for the craftsmanship that went into some of the other builds in here.

I don't feel like I'm done, but I do feel that I've reached a good milestone.

Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of the fuse box location.... it is located just above the wheel well.

I have been thinking about moving the oil catch can back to the firewall behind the turbo.... but had a friend catch an engine fire when one of his hoses came off his setup in the same location. I see a lot of people place their catch can or AOS in that location... curious about group thoughts on that unlikely but possible issue.
