    It's starting to make sense to me now, after following this thread for so long, how you keep this vehicle so immaculate. Working on those amazing cars, you really do need to have OCD. Very impressive, consider me jealous.

    You don't have a thread on garage journal, do you?

    No, actually I don't have anything else on my 05 STI except this thread. I do have a build thread on my Legacy as well

    I finished fitting the new STI struts and springs and also the rear trailing arms and STI brake lines. The lines were a great decision, they made a significant difference and the brake pedal is much firmer now.

    Today I cleaned up the rims and I am going to do a little touch up paint work and fit the new tires. I also removed the plastic side skirts and the large black plastic cover that runs parallel to it and found a lot of dirt in there. I would highly recommend that if you have an Impreza that you take the time to do the same thing, it was amazing how much dirt thre was in there and at the back of the wheel arch, these are the areas you will start to get rust issues over time as the dirt sits there and holds in moisture and then you could possibly start to see issues. It's a simple job to do!

    I have just arrived back from my Trip to New Zealand, it was great, both my cars got out for some good drives. The BC Legacy Type R is awesome, I'm very happy with it. It runs and drives great. I thought you guys would like to see some photos from [/[url=http://s936.photobucket.com/user/nickardele/media/IMG_9531_zpsxxawggqa.jpg.html][/[url=http://s936.photobucket.com/user/nickardele/media/IMG_9525_zpsdknnurtf.jpg.html][/http://s936.photobucket.com/user/nickardele/media/IMG_9567_zps9ct3wjvd.jpg.html]
