Hats off to you Shaun, you've come a long way with this brat and as giles said its a credit to you. It was stunning as you had on it on the road but now with that EJ25 motor and the 5 stud conversion it will be a whole different beast. Can't wait to see it done mate as i know it will be awesome! Keep the pics flowing :D

Finally feel like I'm making some progress! Today I got the EA82 ears tacked on to the subframe so the XT6 control arms are sort of attached to the truck now! People on other forums were telling me I needed to use the EA82 radius arms, this is not the case, they are virtually identical except for the width (EA82 is wider) More work will be done by the end of the day!

Did this today. I hope to get them in later tonight maybe! Along with the subframe and maybe the 2.5 tomorrow :D :D :D

Yep that's right it's 92 legacy struts 97 impreza springs and the Brat (ea81) mounts! They may be a little tight in the strut tower but nothing a hammer can't fix!

I had to make a steering wheel boss up for my truck as i couldn't find one over here in the UK & it was a piece of cake to make too!
Here it is with the Nardi steering wheel off the donor Impreza WRX STI
