Dont get me wrong- im all about you customizing your car however you want. That doesnt mean you shouldnt get positive AND negative criticism
actually all your doing is attacking him for doing something to his car. and, i honestly doubt water is going to "pool" up into the fuse box cover, especially when its covered up by the fender liner. it would take a crapload of water to pool up and hit the fuses also. he also never attacked you and said "oh well my engine bay is clean and yours is going to look like ****" either.

only reason why im saying something is because i did this with my car as well, and never, ever had a problem with it being in there. no water, nothing. and, my fender liner on the bottom is ****ed up so water could have gotten in there as well. but there was none. if you dont like it, well, too bad, thats why you didnt relocate it and he did lol.

You act like I'm going to be driving over lakes or something, and like I'm going to take the fender liner off. That's what those are for ya know to keep water and everything out.
Do you even have any DIY to show??

lol dont take what im saying like im yelling at you and stepping on your creativity and all. whats a bentley without a yugo- whats positive criticism really worth when nobody gives you negatives man.. keep your panties aligned. props on the effort and cleanliness but poo-poo practicality man. i guess im too function over form. my engine bay just wont ever be as herra frush and urs.
and yeah you can spit on a few of my DIYs on post #114 and #115. i invite your negative and positive criticism

you dont drive on lakes??

Could the two of you quit ruining a perfectly good thread debating the merits of the modification? Thanks.

scooby578 have you thought about putting a drian tube on the fusebox cover? Obviously there are people stating that water just doesn't end up getting in there too much, but just as a safety net. Hopefully you will post some pictures when you are all done. Should be a clean bay in there.
At first when I saw that I too was thinking it wasn't a good idea, but then I thought about it a bit. I don't think I have ever had to change a fuse or relay in any of my cars other than the ones from the inside fuse box. I am sure I just screwed myself over with that statement there, DOH!

Did anyone ever come out with a DIY usb ports in the car?
I would really want to do this mod, but now do you safely regulate the voltage to 5v and a safe amp for small electronics.

Got an ebay short shifter with a set of headers I got, and it turned out it was for the narrow pivot, while my car's linkage is the wide pivot. Send it back and get the correct kartboy shifter? Naah...



Terrible picture, but I installed it anyway and went to the hardware store and got three M12 washers to shim it to fit the linkage.

These aren't for my WRX, but I'll go ahead and contribute:

1. Ricer Pedals. I got a set of pedal covers from my local vatozone but the "CF" on them was crap so I made my own sheet of laminated red/black carbon kevlar and cut some inserts to size:





They're still rice, but it's to my taste rice.

2. Shift Knob. This used to be my OEM wrx knob. I cut off the OEM cover and used that as a pattern to cut out some real leather then stitched it up by hand:





3. Used some of the same leather to make my own eBrake handle. The actual handle is made out of a piece of PVC pipe wrapped in a hard-ish closed cell foam. It actually feels like an OEM type piece. The boot is just more of the same leather sewed up to size:





I got tons of other stuff but that's what I've got handy.

This looks good! Does it actually clear the fender where you have it like that? I mounted mine along the frame rail behind the stock fog lights. If it clears the way you have it, I will change mine! What did you need to do to your wires to turn it up-side-down?

This was my original version with some steel line I had lying around- the inner diameter was too big and the whole clutch system didnt work with it being too big.
What size is your new line? Mine turned out looking really good! I believe you should have used -3an parts for the clutch, same as the brake lines. Your old line was like -6an. haha

Mine's a little different. I did a banjo off the slave cylinder so I could have a straight connection without any major bends. I was able to get away with a 8" -3an line to connect both so the line isn't running around like medusa.

Where did you get the blue aluminum fitting for the master cylinder? Mine is silver and I don't like it hahaha. I couldn't find a m10x1.0-->-3an in blue.

How did you make that carbon fiber sheet? Was it expensive?

D-Money---> I used -3AN. Yeah I used -6AN for some fuel line and had that big jamma left over.. Didnt work out so well. I thought blue fittings were pretty much the standard man. I got mine from a local fastener/hydraulics shop.

Da-Risin-Smoke---> Try www.mcmaster.com for the carbon fiber sheet. Its probably about the closest to warehouse pricing youll find for that. If youve never been to that site but love to DIY then prepare yourself to mess your pants.

McMaster-Carr We had about 4 DICTIONARY size parts books in very fine print from that place, and they were only like 4 of over 100 I'm sure. They have a warehouse like 10 minutes from my house and the place is freaking unbelieveably huge. My brother in-law actually worked there for a while in sales too. Im really kinda pissed he left before I could take advantage of it

Moving it to Fabrication gets my vote.

The OP will probably have to be the one to ask for it to be moved. So Mr. HottSauce?

It sounds like a good place for it if you ask me, Although I dont think the mods need my permission, they already changed the name of the thread without asking
