RS Revival - One Month Later

Change is in the air, and it's not just the colors of the leaves on trees.  There's been quite the transformation inside and out with this project car.  The list of fixes grows by the week, as does the list of folks who have pitched in to help bring this car back to where it should be.  While the list of needs is still long, it's great to see how far it's come in such a short time.

You can see some of the obvious work in these two pictures.  Matching wheels & tires, new windshield, JDM STi seats & Version 6 Grille, Duracon STi shift knob, new shift boot, replaced the drivers door with one that has a working window, even the spots of primer have been covered with a silver Rustoleum that matches the paint a little better.  Inside, there's a new clutch slave, KYB struts, new fuel filter, STi exhaust, new rear wheel bearings, new fog light bulbs, and we cleaned about 10 years off the interior panels.  There's a bunch of homeless spiders now, too.

The future is still unclear on this one, but one thing is for sure: it's making it's march back to being a great little RS.  There's adjustments, repairs, and more TLC in store for it.  Aluminium Control Arms, Fog Light Covers, a new back seat, just to name a few of the things lined up that haven't gone into the car yet.  It's been fun to work on with everyone and to share this experience with them.
