RS Revival - Update #1

In the first week of work on the 2.5 RS, major issues have been addressed that have made the Impreza much safer and more solid to drive.  It started with cleaning, the clutch slave, and general assessment of the priority fixes that needed to be made.  After scheduling an inspection with Russ' Garage, ordering some must-have parts, and getting advice and help from others in the NSOC, this car has come quite a long way in a short period of time.

  • Replaced Clutch Slave
  • Vaccummed, Washed, & Cleaned Interior
  • Removed Audio Cables
  • Adjusted Fuel Filter (was in backwards!)
  • Balanced & Mounted Alloy Wheels with 205/55R16s
  • Installed Kartboy Short Throw Shifter
  • Installed Duracon Shift Knob
  • Repaired Front Seat Upholstery
  • Repaired Drivers-side Fog Light
  • Replaced Rear Wheel Bearings

For only having the car for a week, I'd say that isn't half bad. There's a long road ahead of this car, but I've really been impressed with all the support, advice, parts, and install help that have surrounded this project so quickly. The list of "Thank Yous" is already about the same length as the list of stuff we've managed to do!
