Some minor updates :
- fixed most of the scrubbing in the rear by installing the OEM Liberty Springs in the back, still with a 3/8" spacer. Only rear left scrubbing occasionally, which I have the new pair of struts on the way from Japan
- Tonight installed new TRW brake pads all round, and fixed the noise in the front (loose swaybar endlinks). Massive thanks to Sharpie for his help with these!

Car running like a dream again apart from rear left strut, great mood for a Friday. :thumbs:

Have been slack on the updates, so finally doing one now.

- New rear bilsteins still on the way from Japan (thanks ImportMonster)
- Got all the powercoated stuff back, unfortunately the engine cover had issues due to the process they used for initial powdercoat (from the factory). I ended up sanding it back, using etch primer and then using spray on acrylic putty to get it back to good shape. Then painted with enginer enamel (Satin Black). Turned out great considering.
- Engine bay is now finished - power coated strut brace back on, engine cover on. Also painted all fluids caps matte black, and used blue STI stickers on the new OEM radiator caps. Target was a simple but good looking bay which would not draw the attention of the cops - I think I achieved that goal.
- Test fit of the sports lip, looks great. Just need time to properly install it with all the plugs/screws etc. Will do beatrush undertray at the same time, also the sports pods.

Some pics below - slowly inching forward :thumbs:

Managed to install the aero pods today - lucky there were pictures because the instructions were all in Japanese.

Looks a bit weird as the car is filthy but pods clean :lol: Will get better pics once I wash the car :thumbs:
