So waiting for some bits ti turn up and again.... I haven't been about to just leave the old girl alone.

Started playing with the intercooler pipe work. Because of the blue fittings on the fuel lines and headers tank I decided to accent them with titanium pipe work.

All chopped and a test fit once it's all tacked up.

Right. Scoob is leaving the workshop tomorrow to go home as I'm taking some time off work for a bit and it will give me something to keep me occupied

I have started really chomping away at the inner arches now to suite new wide arches. I've also a ordered a couple of bits off ABW that will need to be modded a bit to suite the wide arch width. Becuase everyone needs wide body impreza in their lives.

Also ordered a few guages that turned up this morning.

Oil pressure
Boost pressure
Air/fuel
Oil temp
Water temp
Exhaust temp

Also a dash pod to suite. Once these bits are in and body is done I'm going to do the loom and get it mapped.

Well. Can went on a transporter yesterday and found its way home so I could get cracking with the body. I hadn't finished the 2nd two wheel yet hence the yellow ones

On the transporter and off she goes:

Got some ABW bits on route that will be modded accordingly to suite the arches.

Chipping away at the tasks left to do. Test fitted the guages to make sure I can see them all from the old drivers seat. Good news yes I can. So once the body is completed I'll plumb all these in when I do the Syvecs.

Got the ABW bits. Front splitter and skirts. Both had to be modified to suite the wide arches on the car.

The test fit of the splitter. I can't elaborate enough how well it fitted. Shame to have to mod it.

Part way through being modded and also the skirts added. These had to be extended out to suit the arches.

I have loved everything you have done on this car to date, but I have to say I'm really not sure about the front bumper and how it meets the arches.

You run a very high risk of recreating the famous snet Plough that was the laughing stock of this site for so many years. I just don't think it looks quite right IMO.

"THE" Plough. Reat in pieces (with any luck).

I don't disagree. But the 8 offers bigger intake and taller catchment. It's not going to please everyone. Then nothing about this car will

Righty ordered some more toys this morning to sort the chassis a bit....

Whiteline 24mm front roll bar
Whiteline 24mm rear roll bar - adjustable
Whiteline anti lift kit
Whiteline front and rear ally drop link set

New coilovers. Because the BC are knocky and leaky..... agian. For the second time. On the same car.

I've gone for XYZ adjustable jobbies. Racing logic where the first choice to be honest for the alotted budget. Which ruled out Nirton/KW/Ohlins/Aragosta etc etc. HSD was an option as where the Buddyclub units but I had XYZ units on an old rx7. Along with their big brakes. And I have to say was mega impressed. They offer bigger more sturdy bodies and a more robust top mount than bc/apex type units for the same money. And they also didn't corrode half as fast as the others. One of the big things is that they actually soaked up the bump as opposed to just hitting then so you got a good level of damping even with a firm ride. Pair that with the roll bars so you can run the damping a little softer and they where properly mint (again for the budget).

Got the coilovers through today from Tim @ Scoobyparts. Cannot praise them enough for their service. Parts turning up promptly. Second box tomorrow with the Whiteline parts. They've kept me up to date all the way through. Very very happy.

And over the moon with the coilovers too. Will get them on as soon as I get half a chance. Few of pics.
