Its been a long process, but I finally pulled it off.
I worked all today repairing stripped threads and bolting things down. I crushed the frame rail a bit where the engine crossmember bolts on. guess I was a bit stronger than I thought.
What was cool was at least 5 people rolled down their windows and yelled out positive opinions of the car. One told me to put it in a 4x4 truck magazine. Its good to have a suportive audience.

I still have engine issues to solve, but I'm up to 2/3rds of my total steering range after taking the sledgehammer to it. The rear is completely non-rubbing now, all it took was a pair of channel lock pliars and a sheet metal hammer.
Sorry about the lack of pics. I have a camera, I have a satelite link, but I don't have the knowhow to combine the 2 to get pictures up here.

I'm pissy because I've seen so many posts with people rudly telling them that its worthless without pictures when the writer has done more than enough to give something you can visualize. Like the snorkel thread, he used the stock SPFI hole from the airbox to the fender and ran it inside the fender untill he probably ran it through a hole in the side of the fender and ran it up the A pillar. I can see that in my mind, and I don't need a gawddamn picture.
I don't have the knowledge to post pictures on the net. I have all the equipment available, but I'll be damned if i'm gonna ask my dad how to post pictures on the net. Hell, I don't even know how to get them out of the camera. Techonoligcally benighted, yell, but I don't care because my Imagination gets me by. Learn to visualize stuff. And quit ***************in about "Useless without pictures". Its 4 am and I'm in a ***************y mood, but this needs to be said. everyone who doesn't post pics and optes to describe it instead just gets ************ from the people who can't be bothered to visualize the desciption and just takes it. That sucks in my opinion. I try to respect people here and be mostly helpful, and I don't see the point of giving someone ************ over not having pictures. Does it make you feel good to harass others?
Anyways, my car is whoopen arse, and when its finished, you can see it on the road or at WCSS8 hopefully. Untill then use yer imagination.

Its easy take pictures with digi or regular develop on cd or download to computer.
you post your pics in the message you type by using the attach files button below.
you will have to resize the pics if you go this route, and that can be done with photo editing software. (free download available on the internet someplace)
you could also ask if anyone would host your pictures judging by everyones lack of imagination you shouldnt have a problem.
You could donate to usmb and post them in the photo gallery i think thats how it works here.
lets SEE some lifted subaru action in new hampshire.
ps nothing is a waste of time if you have fun while doing it
