    Subaru GC Impreza coilovers fit, thats what I'm on right now.
    For the rear disc you need the calipers, brackets, ebrake cables, and 4 extra bearing bolts to mount the calipers.

    Well got some more time in this Thanksgiving break from school-nothing exciting just some caliper cleaning and tear down.
    Also bought the 1/8" plate for my new rear swaybar mounts. Should be able to get the brake parts all blasted and the steel cut to shape next weekend when I'm done with this semester.



    Plus it snowed, so this had to happen



    Also stared at my ugly bay taking some measurements for future plans. Let's just say I'm preparing for the addition of two more cylinders-from Germany.


    Finally figured out my steering wheel situation and ordered the adapter ring and should have the factory insert welded into the Grant adapter next weekend.


    I wonder where my strut tower is..

    jokes for days lol

    So do the saturn ion seats take some modification to fit? I was reading some stuff on sixthsphere but wasnt really sure what the final consensus on how to make them work was.

    Yeah you need to cut and weld the base brackets to bolt in.

    You think theyre enough better to make it worth the extra work if I can find them at pick n pull? Or is it only really worth it if I was able to find the recaro redline seats?

    Only worth the Recaros. I had some for a time but sold them before I had the abilities to make them work. Then I made seats that were harder to fit, fit and are lower quality seats.

    do the ebay hub adapters not work on an sl1? like this one

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-Qu...2a7a8b&vxp=mtr

    and this steering wheel just bolts right up to that adapter if it works yes?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/AFTERMARKET-...6a3c16&vxp=mtr

    also what modifications did you make to your impreza coilovers to have them fit onto your fronts? you just had the top hats lasered right?

    thanks in advance.

    Great job on le Saturn dude! So with those wheels, you know where you can source some lips from? I see they're 3-piece

    Also, are you doing a full 5 lug conversion front and rear or just 4 lug front, 5 lug rear? Cause I saw two different rotors in the last page...

    Those adapters won't work because they just go from 6 bolt to six bolt.
    On another note I got a few things done the other day when it was strangely warm.
    Trailing arms all painted. Pretty impressed with the Implement paint I've been using.




    Tried some wrinkle paint on the gauge bezel


    And got a chance to clean out the inside after a month of DD'ing in the freezing cold


    Also this will coming my way- trans mount spacer done right.

    So mount spacer is here! It turned out really good. So good in fact that I'm having the same guy make me up a top mount spacer. Might as well have the worlds only matching set.



    Also decided to make some adapters available to the community for those who want to run a better steering wheel. These are the first couple, think they turned out pretty decent. Making another one this week for my car.



    Also kept plugging away at the rear suspension work, got the calipers all blasted and ready for powdercoat, as well as did a refresh on the shifter.
    I made it about a year ago and I had some free time so figured I would go through it and change some things that were bothering me. Feels nice and smooth and tight now.

    PM me for details on the adapters.

    And the vr swap is still in the works, still working on the 5 lug rear, and sourcing a mk3 swap car soon from a friend hopefully.
    In the meantime I may toss a ko3 on this motor to get a feel for the tuning aspect, plus the experience from making the manifold. Plus I think it would a pretty fun car with such a small turbo. Basically a factory AEB setup except on my motor.
