Thanks! I'm a fan too haha. And oddly enough I'm going to be installing WRX suspension soon so... slightly lowered off-road? haha.

And yea, I've seen a ton of black and white SFs. Just seeing your two back to back I actually forgot for a moment which tab was which. (same black grills too!)

i have a white sf that will be my turbo project. that'll be way down the road. and then i had a champagne sf that had black and white panels. i just recently had it painted black. i'm still working on the bottom half, myself. it was a mistake for me to use bed liner spray. now it's a pita to sand down. i did it for when i was living in ny, for those winters.

That's gonna look nice. I've always wondered what a lowered SF with all terrain tires would look like, I think it would look awesome! Maybe I'll try that when I need new tires? Haha!

@ tallazz No worries, one day it will be an awesome turbo SF!

Thanks Philip! They were a breeze to install.

I posted this in another thread but I'll put here too. My younger brother got this '99 RS with 99k original miles a few weeks ago. I'll post his mods here too since my journal moves so slow lol. It's fun to drive even if it's an automatic. We're planning a 5MT swap in the future.

So yesterday I installed my Kartboy front and rear shifter bushings, what an improvement! They were a royal PITA to install but it was well worth it. Shifts feel a lot smoother and there is almost no slop in the shifter anymore. I can't wait to get a KB short shifter later on to complete the package.

Today I'm going to install my DIY rear subframe lockdown bolts, hopefully they tighten the back end up. They cost me around $20 and I got all the parts from Lowe's.

And last but not least my Flossy Redhead Heavyweight shift knob with a custom engraving should ship out this week, 1.2 pounds of smooth shifting goodness!
I'll post pictures when I get it so you guys can see how awesome it is haha! I might even get a WC Lathe Werks 'Mock STI reverse lock out extension' to add some more weight and for the badassness of it!

Awesome.
You should do a write-up on the subframe bolts.

I thought I included a picture, guess not. Here you go(the black round things next to the bolts are the Kartboy front shifter bushings for those wondering).


Here's where I found the write-up: http://www.scoobymods.com/showthread...lts-13527.html

They are just M12 x 1.25 x 50mm bolts (you need two of these, they can be 50mm-60mm long, it doesn't matter), and 3/4" x 1/2" bronze flange bearings (also two of these). If you buy them at Lowe's they are right by the house key cutting area in pull-out trays where there are other automotive bolts and stuff (I never even knew that section existed until I went looking for these, took me a good 30 minutes of walking around to find them!). If all else fails just print out a picture of the bolts and flange bearings from the link I posted (scooby mods) and ask a Lowe's worker to help you find them.

You can also get them online.
Bolts: M12-1.25 x 55mm DIN 960 Class 10.9 Yellow Zinc Cap Screw | Fastenal
Bronze Flange Bearing: BSF-1624-8 1/2"IDx3/4"OD Powder Metal Bronze Flange Bearing | Fastenal

Remember you need two of each. Also the bolts I got look shorter and a bit different because they have thread going all they way down the bolt instead of the thread starting after the flange bearing, you can get either or, it doesn't matter. And one final note, the grade(strength) of the bolts need to be 8.8 or higher, the ones I got from Lowe's are 8.8, it says right on the top of the bolt. Good luck and as usual, if you need any help post in here or send me a PM, I'm always happy to help!

Thanks!

Hopefully I'll have a few more things to install within the next week or so.
