Would have to say not from what is seen in here, many in process with large variance to the level they are done. I just dont see many going after the full show car level but something in between.

Does anyone have a rough guess on how far you can move the fusebox before the wiring needs to be extended? Im planning to tub my inner fenders and need to move the box as far as possible.

I moved my fusebox all the way to right under the headlight without exstending anything. And d money mines on the way to full shave. Im full tucked, working on a rotated kit and abs delete then the motor is comin out for welding off of all the holes and then repaint of bay.

Quick question whay do u guys use to smooth the bay do u use bondo or glass.

Hmm, I think I'll have to see about moving mine down by the headlight. That seems like a good solution to having it still be accessable.

Sorry for the late response.
Slvr2k Thanks! A lot of blood sweat and beers went into this car so far. Only reason I don't want to move it into the fender is moisture. This car will most likely be my daily for a little while too. My goal one day is to put it into my glove box and really tuck all the wires through the trans tunnel and come in in 1 harness to the center of the block. but that wont happen for a while. Need to get my build 100% done before I move to the next thing.

This is what I did for my fuse box in the fender to keep it nice and water tight

Has anyone built a custom bracket for the power steering pump to sit in? Mine broke where the adjuster is and instead of getting a new brittle one from Subie, I want to custom make one out of steel. In the process of rerouting my tensioner more towards the center and lower so the crank will stop slipping.

Looks great Brcewane, looks like there's plenty or room for other goodies too.

Did you have to extend any of the wires?

Spent about five hours today finishing up the wire harness extension... holy crap that takes a long time to solder everything. About 75% of the new sheet metal is in... getting close! Just need to put in the last bit of sheet metal and smooth things out.

Doing everything in my garage with a baby on the way... hopefully I will have everything completely done before next Summer

Pretty sure I'll be relocating my battery to under the passenger, and then shaving the battery pedestal.

I haven't touched my bay in months,
Thanks for lighting a fire under my ass smurfy.
