Love it! I hope to have maybe half of that stuff in a years time if Im lucky! Have you got any pictures of the wing mirror controls at all? Im looking at retrofitting the fold function but havn't actually seen a JDM control panel for it.

Picture below of the jdm control panel, the switch is the top part of the mirror control switch on the left.

From my build thread on ozfoz.com
waali on ozfzoz said:
INSTALL NOTE FOR THOSE WISHING TO DO THIS MOD
PASSENGER SIDE MIRROR WILL NOT FOLD UNLESS YOU FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS BELOW.

In an SF the cross body loom that goes from the drivers side kick panel to passenger side kick panel is missing the two folding mirror wires.
The wires are there though from the cross body loom onwards on both sides.
Seperate the loom and you will find two wires that are not continued through the loom. They are yellow and black with white stripe. Pull them out and run two wires across the car and connect them to their brothers on the other side, thats it, the passenger side mirror will now fold.

This is an awesome GT, and it is continually getting better!
Cheers mate,

Update soonish, fingers crossed.

Lots of suspension items being installed soon including cusco braces which are back from the coaters, bucketloads more whiteline gear and a very sexy beatrush rear floor brace.
Also a 02 sti master clutch cylinder and piping for some offset goodness so the PW tmic can be shoehorned in. :icon_biggrin:

Edit: Also added some pics to the first post from the ozfoz.com 2010 rally

Bit of an update:

- Installed a GDB clutch master cylinder and associated piping. The reservoir is now offset to allow better tmic clearance when the Process West goes in.
- Installed a Beatrush rear floor brace, runs between the base of the two rear strut towers.
- Broke another rear diff, found a replacement from a low km Forester SF5 STI II halfcut.

Purchased a full 6MT upgrade from a 02 GDB as I'm sick of breaking stuff.

6MT non DCCD
- Front Suretrack LSD
- Clutch Slave cylinder and fork
- Rear Mount
- Shifter assembly and gear knob
- Starter motor
Rear R180 Suretrack LSD
Rear R180 hubs with handbrake shoes etc.
R180 Front and rear drive shafts.
6MT Tail shaft
6MT Flywheel
6MT OEM Exedy Clutch

Also:
Auto foz tailshaft from the same Forester halfcut mentioned above. Apparently the GDB tailshaft hits on the SF.
Rear sti rotors for the R180 hubs.

Drivetrain upgrade awesomeness to follow :D

Are you going to switch the companion flange on the R180 so that you can use the Foz tailshaft or redrill the R180 flange?

Will switch if required. I have a couple of dead r160's that I can grab the yoke off.
I am really hoping the sti shaft will clear though.

Did you have issues with tunnel fouling?

Nice,clean and simple.
Is that grill stock for the Forester in Australia? Or is it aftermarket and is it easy to find ? I have a few cousins there and might have them look for that grill if it's easy to find.
thanks!

Grill is stock on the 00-02GT's in AU and the same era JDM S/tb's and others.
The F badge though is JDM. AU has the oval subaru badge as standard.

I had heard about Impreza units contacting parts of the underside of the car so I picked up one from an automatic Forester when I did my swap. No issues as of yet.
The flange on the R180 is supposed to have different bolt spacing so, from what I've read, you'll have to either use the STI shaft or switch the flange from one of your dead diffs, that's the plan for mine when I throw the R180 in it this year at some point.

Cheers Rob,

Thats fairly much the plan, picked up a auto shaft a few weeks back from a st/b sti ii that is being wrecked locally.
Will install all sti and see if it fouls first then work from there.
