    I can honestly say, that I cannot wait to see your brand new [handbuilt by you] car. Your attention to detail is insane. Keep on keepin on!

    (Definitely first post worthy)

    EDIT: I've been watching this for quite a while now and is part of the reason I joined the site.

    Thanks, I appreciate that you are following the build, it's going a bit slow at the moment because of me working in the American Le Mans series this year, so I am travelling a lot. We have just won five in a row in the p1 class.
    There is a lot to do with the Legacy build so it's going to be a long build thread

    Hi everyone, well I finally have an update, I have the front Sub frame painted and fitted to the car. I have to get a steering rack from a 05-07 Impreza STI and also need to modify a intermediate steering shaft to fit between the column and the rack as I have been told these are different spline on the Legacy Column compared to the Impreza. The front Bar set up is great, there are four positions on the ARB Arms to Adjust the bar from a soft to firm position (the Softest setting being the hole furthest away from the bar at the end of the arm which is where there is the most leverage action on the bar) also the splined bar itself can be easily changed.
    Here are a few photos of the Subframe in place

    Thanks, in the end we won eight of the Ten races and won the Championship, it was great to be racing again after two years away from working on a team. I guess you probably got to watch me working if you were at our garage :-) I hope you had a good time .

    The second part of this project is nearly finished. I have slowly been going through all the original parts and rebuilding them. I hope that someone will be interested in buying them to rebuild another Legacy back to it's former glory. Here is what I had in mind, I have to paint the diff housing which has rusted a lot just sitting around and go through the steering rack and fit bushings to lateral links and trailing arms and then this project is finished !
