Re-built axles being installed in the front. Having a clutch type LSD in the front that makes a similar noise to a bad axle clunk makes it harder to know when to replace.

Installed Bride Zeta III+ carbon aramid shell on SG specific bride sliding seat rails. Extra padding added in the head, side, lumbar, and thigh. Seat back protector, because I have a 9 year old daughter who has no idea what carbon aramid is nor how much I spent on the seat. Also added Schroth profi II asm fe 4-point harness. It would have been a 6-point but I was sent the wrong crotch strap so until it arrives, 4-pointer. Seat makes contact with the b-pillar at a certain distance from steering wheel but fortunately I'm short enough to overcome that issue. Others might not be so lucky. I do have the seat set to the highest position. As expected, awkward entry/exit procedures. I see a D-shaped steering wheel in my future, whenever the DAMD performance steering wheel becomes available for SG's.

It's so good to see your Liberal Forester build on here, Jimmy! THANK YOU for posting part numbers for all your parts.

I haven't been on this forum for ages, and I need to rebuild my build thread. Photobucket and its miserly ways killed all my pictures! :(
Hbd Andrew. Just trying to make it easier for those that are looking/searching.

It was so long since I was on, ended up creating a new profile.

I noticed the photobucket issue on other forums. Even on this one, seems only vip's get the enhanced upload.

I will try to update the journal on a regular basis. Definitely have more time now.
