Finally got this wrapped up........

After numerous setbacks the rear end is finally finished and aligned, and this all started because of a wheel barring...? The first issue was the massive amount of rust on all the trailing and latter arm bolts, so they all had to be cut off and replaced. After removal of OEM arms that was one day of waiting on parts. The next issue was finding my backing plates to be basically rusted away to nothing, so I have to either get new plates or get new complete hubs with plates, luckily I had both options sitting in the garage. ( backing plates were bought for this car a month after I got it because I saw the bad BP then. The hubs were for my show car, as it needs new wheel barrings an all for corners ) I figures I just swap the whole hub and be done with it, well that was not as easily done as expected. After swapping the hubs and getting all the new suspension bits bolted on, I had forgotten the caliper mounts where a different spacing . So now everything has to come off again and the hubs had to be pressed apart and the backing plates swapped off the 06 hubs to 05 and older backing plates so my 03 calipers would bolt on......did I mention That was another day of waiting to have the barrings pressed apart, and them being told that would destroy them and new ones need to go in before pressing together. Luckily, I had not considered the 06 hubs where the better STi type barrings, so that was an unforeseen upgrade
All this happened 48 hours before my scheduled alignment at R/T Tuning.

I cant say i feel a ton of difference but that is more than likely due to the large suspension upgrades done to the wagon already.

Progress:

Finally got around to starting multiple projects on the Wagon again......

Gauge Pod for the Drivers side of the dash

I had made one of these for my GC Wagon a few years ago and really liked the position of the 3 gauges compared to the center dash or the Pillar, so here we go again!!









Spec C Roof Scoop

Got this on ebay from a guy who drives rally's in Poland......for a steal! It was pretty filthy with green tree mold and bug guts plaster all on the under side. Few passes of lacquer thinner and it was cleaned up and ready for primer.



STi 04^ rear fender flairs

Im sick or the rust starting to form in the usual spots just above the rear bumper and quarter panel area. In addition to the rust Im slicing the rear tires on the inner fender lip, so it will be easier to flair it the pull and roll it.


...........more pic's to follow

My last pod in the GC8 wagon did not fit quite as tight into the dash lines as I would have liked so I molded out the A-pillar/dash area. Hopefully I will be able to get the current pod and the dash mold to marry up in a way that will a nice tight fit.....?

Heh . . . Actually I'm a bit impatient. There for there is a space heater currently running in my Wagon to help cook the resin over night while it's like 40 degrees outside.

Today I installed a few more goodies......

Cuso Motor and Trans mounds along with Whiteline Trans bushings

Carbing Light Weight Sub Frame




After 15-20 miles of driving I can already feel and hear the difference in the transmission and its response. The Sub Frame is defiantly an improvement in handling.

Thanks! I hope it comes out like I want, my last pod from the 97 GCF was ok but not to my particular standards in precise fitment.
