    I had to get the Legacy off of the Rotissorie today because I sold it. I will use the money towards the WRC stands which I just purchased. I decided to fit the bumpers to the car just to take a look at it also it keeps them under cover and safe. The front bumper cover is the USDM one and will not be the one I will fit to the car, It will have the JDM cover!

    Mikie13 You are a good man! I wished I had more people subscribed to my threads that pop in from time to time and let me know that they are watching :-) I really do apreciate that! I actually wonder sometimes if Any one is following, Compared to other build threads where there are heaps of comments. The most important thing to me is that I document the build and it's interesting for people that take a look !

    Here's something I had not posted, It was going to be a surprise but I have found someone that has original style prodrive wheels, he has cast new wheels, actually he built the original wheels as a worker for the original manufacturer.

    I can have them machined as required


    Front seats I intend to find and purchase and fit to car

    There are a few things that I consider very important to this project, The Front and rear Sub Frames which are hand made and done by a true craftsman and fabricator, his welding is a work of art.
    The Engine is also very important to me, and having the original hand ported cyl heads on an engine that was shipped direct from STI, well that is fantastic and a great part of this project also.
    The wind up manual windows are also another great find and part of this project, having those and the correct engine to make it like the genuine Legacy RA is priceless. There are a couple of other items that I thought was significant when it comes to the RA Legacy, and Gerald at Strongs was able to find me a genuine rear garnish and the genuine Type RA decal attached as shown in this photo. It may have cost me a lot of money however it was well worth it.

    Then one of the members on here helped my significantly by finding this new badge for my intercooler as found on the RA Legacy, so a very special thanks to him. It is a very special find as they are no longer available, I have purchased the last turbo hood here in the USA as well as many other items that were the Last available and it makes it really awesome to know that many of the new parts used to build this car can't be found now.
    Here is a picture of the badge

    There is another part of the project that is amazing and that was the work done to remove the Sunroof and fit the filler panel. This was also done by a true craftsman
    Bruce at Specialtymetalfabrication.com did this part of the project. The Possum Bourne roof vents are also another special part of the project specially having the opportunity to work with him on Several occasions thanks to Trevor Crowe running the Legacy. Here are some photos of the roof

    A Diversion from the thread here but I wanted to mention this, as some of you know the Legacy project slowed down this year as I was Traveling a lot to work in the ALMS on a P1 car. After the season end we won eight out of ten races and one Fourth place and A DNF in the season final at Petit Lemans in Atlanta Georgia. We won the Drivers and manufacturers Championship and I finally attended the Championship Banquet as part of the Series champion crew.
    I was lucky to have my Wife and boys there with me for the last race having spent so much time away traveling to races this year. It was also a special occasion to have my wife there with me on the grid holding the flag before the race.

    Our race car was also parked outside the Banquet hall on the big night so it was a special event.

    Here is a kit for the intake manifold that I also plan to get, it's basically a thermal spacer that replaces the factory gasket and helps prevent heat soak into the Manifold!

    I know many others are watching. A lot of our members here are local to me and we hang and chat all the time. Your thread/restores always come up and is certainly an awesome topic. Keep it up!

    I'll be sad when you are finished

    Well it won't be any time soon. I will be returning to Muscle milk Pickett racing for 2014, also there is still a lot of work to do. There is a lot left in this build thread! :-)
    I have another build in mind after this one but I don't know if I will be able to fund another one after this..... I need a sponsor !

    Those are awesome. They hold the car up at the pinch welds like regular stands?

    I like that they have a wider base.
