Slowly moving forward.

Mounted and aligned front bumper cover. Oh the constant flow of imperfections in this kit makes it really challenging to find alignment points.
Right side does NOT equal the left....





Custom aluminium lower bumper brackets. Those will also be used to hold the liner.
Trying really to remove as much weight as possible from the front, so aluminium whenever possible.





And a closer look.




Hard to see but this is front bumper beam with a support for where the grille would be.
Looking at it now.. it probably needs more holes......





Hand brake cable holes welded up in favor of hydraulic hand brake.




Door moulding holes welded and ground up with a help of spacers.




Left side door sill installed and moulding holes welded up as well.




... Testing some 22B pr0n...




... and the diet continues...
Door beams were removed.
This thing is becoming more and more fragile.

Last but not least...
a vintage BMW or Benz jack that just fits perfectly into the jack holes...
Perfect !!! Lightweight and small enough to find its place in the trunk.

This is one of the best things I have ever taken the time to look through! Keep up the great work. Can't wait to see the finished product.

When do you think a completion date would be near?

High hopes would be end of this year..
thing is, the more we move forward, the more details surface up and that needs additional time.

Not a good day of work...
F-ed up few things....


That bumper support was way too heavy...
Now it looks more like it.



Time to cut some carbon fiber...


It almost fits... almost.

Now.. back to work...
After breaking few drill bits.... back to door shaving...

Wanted to use an ETS one but seems too high and a bit too short.

Nothing makes an evening better than s**t from England !!!!




Its the size of a computer power supply !!!!



Yup... its a baby compared to the original STI heater.



6 modular vent holes.. that can be closed off if needed.



And of course aluminium fittings to go with it !!!

I've been gone from here so long. I'm glad I came back and was able to catch this build. Awesome build man! I'm definitely going to be watching this.

Ok... The heater was test fitted.
The screws were removed in favor of flush aluminium rivets..





This allows it to be mounted flat.

Now onto the hood latch.
Took some balls (at least for me) to cut that JDM aluminium hood.





Pin placement seemed OK but that wasn't the case..
We had to fiddle around to get it properly aligned.





Balls out.. and I cut the other latch.




Lower rad beam was removed in order to properly align the intercooler and radiator..




Up close and personal with the risers to clear the STI radiator.




Finally the seat and steering column were mounted to test the placement of the new hydraulic hand brake..

Rear bumper has been installed.
Few minor welds are still needed here and there but the bumper is up.






A new home for the cat... maybe muffler

A productive Saturday I must say...
Managed to custom mount the IC.

After 3 week wait... this beauty showed...



Raised rad supports to clear the lower outlet.


At 33" the IC was longer than expected...
Some plasma action and welding was applied.



Building a fork lift.. are we ?


Finished product... Lower IC mount brackets.
With the front bumper beam mount holes nicely boxed.



A glimpse of the Master welder.



A finished product with top support beam


Next step... Cutting the carbon bumper....
