Moar parts came in today so it was time to finally put the power steering issue to rest.

Rack cross line that I cracked while replacing the subframe came as well.



After about 30 min I finally figured out where to mount the PS reservoir.
This required the alternator bracket removal
.



There it is.. a clean install.



Was this close to drive with PS ... but since the tank is mounted in a different position the pump feed has to be turned 180 to work..
But it cant work since there is no way to secure it.
So.. I have a AN fitting conversion and will need to wait for -10AN 90...




Drivers seat with new brackets and belts has also been installed.
I had to re-drill the mounting brackets and push it back about an 1".
Now I feel like its too far...




Last but not least.. I am sure most of you mark your bolts once they are torqued.
If not here is a handy marker that I use to mark all the bolts that have a final torque. A sharpie is used when the bolt is removed.

When your car is up and driving, let us know how that reservoir works.
Im running the Case Bays one as well and at idle the fluid flows through looking perfect, but after taking the car down the street two houses and back, I popped the cap off and the fluid is super aerated.
Trying to figure out if Ive got somewhere that is pulling in some air or if its just a characteristic of the reservoir.

So.. Power steering is done and works like a charm.
Thank you Amazon Saturday delivery.





Up next was coolant tank install.
Here is the bracket with supplied bolt.
Why Mishimoto ? why ?





You could say there is lots of room in the engine bay...
Here it is installed.






Went ahead and changed the tranny fluid.
What came out wasnt amusing.
Put some crappy one to flush before Motul goes in.

Also I've noticed that I cant put 5th and 6th gear in.





It was then time to put on them stickers..




Last but not least.. Rear sti sticker has been applied.




As some of you know.. this build wasn't really my idea.
I got talked into it..
It only took few minutes before my mind was made up.

Nonetheless I came up with an idea.
Since Robert's and mine names both start with R, I made a little sticker honoring his involvement with the build.

Pic is a bit blurry but...

It says "Я2 Production"

So far all good here.
Fluid looks "calm". Just drove it easy.

The tale of invisible string.

It was time to do one of them alignments.
I had to somehow square the adjustable lateral links.
There was a bit of toe on the rear and the front right was out qute a bit.

Seems to drive a bit better.





Scales came in handy as they lifted up the car.




After that was a time for a first wash...
Thus finally some better pics.

And tonight .. on "wtf did you do in 5hrs.."

Finally got around to completing the steering wheel wiring.




Wheel is much smaller than stock and it covers the cluster a bit.
But on the plus side .. with the quick release it moved the wheel towards the driver.





Last but not least got tired of looking at the beat-up charge pipe...
It now has a brushed finish.

I tried and gave up on sponsors.
I guess they've seen many builds but few ever got completed?

Thus no stickers on the car.
Garage cabinet doors host them all.
