GBA header tank


the header tank isn't really related,
but the car is at the shop, and this thing has been here at my house teasing me since the car left.
It's a nice piece of jewelry for the engine compartment, it's prettier than my watch.

As far as the actual work, installation of the above parts can be done in two days.
That isn't the time constraint.
Cutting the rear end out of my car, using the K frame to fabricate a brace, then welding in a 2005 STi rear, and the brace layer under that, then reinstalling the tank, evap box, sway brackets, etc... that's what has taken so long.

Most of the body work is done.
the coilovers will be here this week.
pics will be posted as the assembly nears completion.
For now, the rust is gone, the bottom of the car is gold.
it's the color of the original BBS gold metallic rims offered on the tribute WRB blue STi
Fortunately, of the 6 colors offerred for this undercoat, this one fit between all the odd colors of the braces and suspension components.
I keep hearing one of the guys saying he's putting a smile on the pumpkin, and I found out what that means... lol
i might have missed a bushing or some piece up in that list... but the pics will show them.. whatever they are.

Looking forward to having the car back, getting out into the country again, enjoying the boost...

like I said... pics... soon.
