Well, Tyson asked for some progress pictures... motor and clutch will hopefully be here next Wednesday or so and we grabbed a bunch of stuff from Tyson... that first 500km is going to be rough, not being allowed to beat on it with a fresh clutch.

Rust gone, patches ready to be welded in. Not as pretty as I'd like, but they'll work.


A-pillar needs some serious grinding + putty still...


Tranny is in... and theres fucking kitty litter everywhere over my nice clean floor.

Well, this was obviously on the slow boat from Quebec... JDM EJ25D




Now if I had a clutch, it'd be running by Monday

Took all the brakes off the car today, but headed to vancouver tomorrow. If you need them this weekend send me a PM and I can leave them somewhere accessible around my house.

Well, after 8 months, it's finally on the road, still needs a few small things like paint but I need warmer weather for that.

Yay! It made it from Sooke to UVic without issues this morning and still started (last problem was it kept killing batteries while running due to a missing engine->ground cable).

Now for the Subaru kids out there, is the gas gauge always so slow? It takes nearly an hour of running before you get an accurate measurement.

This weekend doesn't work but next weekend shouldn't be a problem. I'll let you know.

And I agree, that thing definitely needs a turbo.

Well, pretty much a year later, the paint is done and we're ready to either sell it or get rid of the Ion...

Glass did come out and considering the rust repairs were done ~18 months ago and they haven't come back, I doubt they will.
