Since I didnt have heated seats i installed them :)

Heater set and then zip ties used to replace hog rings





seat backs done too :)

switches installed :D 

ALL DONE!

But wait!  Not quite.  Here begins my war against bobble head and uncomfortable unsupportive seats.

First, Bend the living god out of the seat springs, (brought down 1-1.5" each)
Sweet, now i sit "In" the seats not on them.  But wait.  There is almost no foam on the bum of the driver side.  Lets fix this


Foam :D


Bum!


Personal Located lumbar support

Review of the above adjustments. 

-Great fix for lower back support
-Good for long journeys
-Requires softer padding for bum for 11+ hour drives
-Will revisit this with proper foam this summer :)

I'm a fan of WRX wings on STI's... Like I said in person.  :P

But if you're fixed on finding an STI wing, at least WRB is a common colour. ;)

Where did you find that silver front plate for the license plate? Those holes up front are making me insane, and I've been trying to find a vendor for those things for a while now.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.

Nice STI man, I'm pretty sure I was comtemplating the same STI but couldn't make up my mind and you picked it up, good find.

Does the 04 trunk directly sway with the 06?  I have an 04 STI and definately considering doing the swap IF you are interested.

It does.

Remember to swap the tension rods as well so your trunks open properly.

+1 for STi trunk.
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

Personally I think the STI looks best with the "parkbench" as well.
Nice ride you picked up there too...glad you found what you were looking for.
Wronks - Have fun out there.

So I am leaving for six months, and my baby is going into storage.  Like many of you accumulating a parts pile, I await par in the canadian dollar before I begin to do the same.  For those of you interested, here is where i am moving until July 23



When i signed on with my current employer, they said when I started that I had to do a tour, and well.  My time has come.   Hopefully when I get home ill have the following waiting for me

Group N tophats
Whilteline steering rack bushings
Ohlins FPS
RCE blacks



after the above its just little things other then either a SPT or COBB turbo back, both of which i am diligently researching. 

So cheers to you all, and see you all in 6 months.

Get the RCE Yellow springs, they give you a much better look than the blacks and perform better.

If by perform better, you mean that you like to bottom out on potholes and expansion joints, yes they do.

I've never had this issue yet on Alberta roads, depends on the size of hole and joints I guess. Was this at Race City? I heard that track is bumpy.

I dont want to lose the ground clearance, as I hope to get involved in rally cross :)

Oh and Taylor, Im going up there with another fellow from my work.  We are there to maintain the ILS (Instrument Landing System) and VOR (VHF Omni Range) among other things related to the airport there.  Its the emergency landing zone for planes going across the pole :)
