Really enjoying this!

You are doing a very thorough job.

I'm actually covering a bit of the same ground you already have with our non-STI refresh... Just finished in pressing in new wheel bearings and have some "Hawkeye" fixed calipers that I am upgrading to. Will soon take apart he existing suspension, refresh the drive axles (as you did) and put it all back together with new ball joints, tie rods etc. plus coil-overs. Will be staying with OEM rubber bushings though... overall it will a more conservative/mild set up than what you are doing. Plus, it is a 5 speed WRX, not an STI!

What product did you choose for the wheel wells (the black portions)? I am trying to decide what to use...

Back when I did our old 911, I did the wheel alignment myself, using homemade fixtures and string, and it turned out well, but looking at that tool you use has me thinking I may go a similar route, and may follow your footsteps and invest in that...

Thanks everyone!

I still have a few things on the to-do list:
  • Oil Cooler
  • Radiator
  • Paint hood
  • Paint rims
  • Cylinder 4 cooling mod
  • Coilpacks
  • Shifter slop

After that, I'm likely going to give the engine a refresh.

It's great for suspension tweaks and figuring out the perfect setup for you and the car.

I believe I used 3M undercoat. But its been a few years so my memory is a bit foggy.
