What you call rust there in WA is nothing compared to what happens here in WI - gauranteed! Lost my old GL wagon to the cancer that was so bad we were afraid she would break in two going over the RR tracks! :eek: Engine only had 265K and was still going strong. Still miss the old girl! (was my first)

In the middle of tinting my Lego's windows - using a heat reflective (67%) limo black (5%) - looks pretty cool and helps keep the interior a bit cooler as well! (already has a power sunroof :grin:)


I have lost 1 vehicle to rust, and another is on the way, fortunately not any of my subaru's yet. But I live about 1500 feet from this:)

We really like living on the coast, but nothing wrong with corn and hay fields...as unfortunately the ocean is getting closer...faster than predicted.

Cleaned the interior up a bit and installed a manual pedal box

Ran across this at a wrecking yard in "new" condition and the right color:)

Recently added electric mirrors, interval wipers and I have a tilt column to install once my harness and ecu arrives...

Well it been a while since ive updated but heres whats been happening with my wagon. Ive installed carpet and soon door cards from a GL wagon, received a set of pug lugs to run the 15" alloys and L discs at each corner ( for now ) installed longer brake hoses to retain all the stock anchor points for the lines after lifting it, and picked up a rear tire carrier, once I locate a straight rear bumper I plan on pulling the cover and installing a mount/pivot point for it. Soon to receive some big items for the build, and no more na 5 speed behind the ej20g.:banana:

Where were you able to source a complete AWIC kit? I would have asked when you were up here, but the rain was nuts!

Nice weather finally, and being layed off its time to start up on my wagon again. Today I installed a wrx pedal box. I made a template for the clutch m/cly mount.

Posted Image
Drilled the firewall
Posted Image
and installed the m/cyl, good news is I dont have to reroute my speedo cable
Posted Image
the wrx acc pedal and linkage is seperate from the pedal box, and when compared to the ea82 pedal box its longer and doesnt have the same travel
Posted Image
So I sectioned the 4eat pedal box it origionally had to use the ea82 acc pedal and linkage
Posted Image
And everything installed with the ea acc pedal overlaid on the wrx pedal box

:slobber: This car is B-E-autiful! And I'm guessing on that harness that "earth" is the ground? That's cute... haha.

And I know it was forever ago but... Nomad Brad... I understand you live in Boise and whatnot... but up here in North Idaho we're STILL getting snow... I pity you that you were caught off guard by snow! I love snow! That's what makes subies so much fun! :D

Today ill start installing the drivetrain. Im installing a wrx 5 speed, rear diff and axles. Im using the ej center section combined with xt6 front and rear cross members.
Posted Image

I ran across an add in craigslist yesterday. A guy had bought a new '07 wrx and within 2 weeks had a performance shop install a full cobbs system. He boxed up his stock stuff and had it in storage up until yesterday. It was free for the pickup and should work well on my wagon with a little modification.
