    The pictures here don't do it justice, I used the Blue Coral upholstery cleaner and it has made the seats and carpet look like brand new. This is a great product, I used it fairly lightly, it foams up and I used two microfiber cloths to wipe everything down. There were a lot of little spots, specially on the black on the seats which get dripped on when it rains and seemed to leave marks because of this are now completely gone and the door panels look great. I highly recommend this product

    Today I will be assembling the rear uprights. I have made all the tooling to be able to do this, I measured all the pieces and using the drawings in the manual, I added these measurement and made the tools. There is a support for the upright, a tool to press the bearing into the upright and a tool to press the hub into the bearing and a tool to install the seals. If you do not support and press these bearings in properly you can damage (Brenel) the bearing.

Here are a couple of other things I found out, the caliper bolts often sieze and break off in the caliper, the bolt is not so good ( the bolts are a little undersize) as well as going in without any lube they are prone to breaking off in the caliper and it happened to me during this project. The Torque spec for the front caliper with Brembo brakes is 80 ftlbs not 114.3 ftlbs which is common in the factory Subaru Manuals ( I even checked an 02 03 japan STI manual which said the same thing) my bolt broke while removing it and I found this out while looking into what the bolts were torqed to. The strut clunk is very common to 04 to 07 STI's and it is easily mistaken for a problem with the differential it normally happens at very low speed and often pulling into driveways etc, it sounds like the diff and having pulled the struts apart the problem was very obvious. Torque spec on the bolt holding the insert in is 30 ftlbs! I will let you know what I figure out about the unusual flat spot that developed on the rear tire, it occoured on my trip from Indy to Vegas and sounded just like a bad wheel bearing,I am not sure at all what caused this as I had the wheels balanced and rotated from front to rear the day before the trip and there were no vibrations during the trip it just developed the noise in the last five hours!
    attached is the picture of the insert in the rear caliper, it was a bad situation when the bolt broke off in the caliper I tried to drill it out and made it worse, fortunately this project was fixed by my dad on the mill, he had to make an oversize insert and put the proper centreline in the insert that is why the hole is offset in the insert!
