  1. Bit more done, actaully done all the way to bulk head now and touched on some of the tight areas. More pics when get time!, calipers ect being done too. ( need to wipe the exhaust over ?)
  2. Few pics and Harwich Quay! Started to scrub back and repaint the underside of the fozzy. Removing the rear ARB ect first (the whiteline 22mm upgrade I fitted in 2011 with the drop links) ..bare metal and back to silver.. Have new stickers for those too? Undersealed about 5/8 of the underside at mo, brush and spray combo. Then waxoyl over the top eventually and inner seals, door skins ect.
  3. Was amazed actaully, drove from North Essex.. Down A120, A12, M25, over the dartford crossing M2, A2 and in to Canterbury where I see a new shape Forester.... That was it there and back 230 mile and one scooby..what are the chances of that?.. But maybe more amazing was the fact I only used just over half a tank of fuel?
  4. Welcome matey, its been quite on here! Where you from bud?, someone might be near you, I'm at the arse end of North essex... No-one passes through here?
  5. Yes mate spent a fortune over the years modding, repairing and maintenance!, first one was a my96 UK wagon turbo, back in 2004 to 2008 got that running 311bhp. Sold it as it was taking over my life!! 2009-2010 had a my94 WRX then 2011-2012 had a Forester s-turbo...... Which I bought back july 2019!, was a mess and only got back on road 22nd Aug this year. Dont regret it, it was sentimentla. Has a prodrive upgrade from new too.
  6. Welcome mate, sounds like you have a plan!, looks nice? Yes hoping next year we can get to some events, was hard to do a few year ago as I was employed, but been self employed for 7 years now and loving it... Time to play? Although driving a 21 year old forester!,
  7. ccrien, it was awful mate, one of those rear suspension turrets think it was off side, the hole at the top was the size of a shoe, nearside wasn't as bad, was quite disheartening when he first called me up to have a look after he stripped it. Asked me to make a decision, fix or scrap... When it was jacked up with front door open you couldnt actually shut it!. I need to have a good look on the ramps and get some after pics, I had a brief look during, and his welding is spot on, he knew the process and what I wanted long term. Ive had mixed reactions, "why waste yer money on an old subaru," or "well done for keeping a mk1 on the road" can't win lol My car my money? All id say is mate if you intend to keep it a while then sort it before goes too far,
  8. Tony what is the best way to use the pics on my phone to put on here?, used to use photobucket?, or can put them on my Facebook page and link to there? I haven't got any after pics yet, waiting from the man who took pics during and of progress.
  9. Hi all!, some may of seen the last post regarding my old Forester, long story short..... 1999 S Turbo Bought in 2011, sold in 2012... By some Miracle managed to get back in july 29th 2019!, FATE!! Enjoyed it for 3 weeks due to MOT running out and needed a lot of work to pass next one. Tested in Nov 2019 but failed. Needed a lot of welding..... Sat in my Garage till June this year, had a chap take a look at the job after 2 others wouldn't take it on, she was fit for the scrap heap, chassis was so bad but I didn't want to give up on her.. Come too far!, This guy was my hero, he worked on it when had a chance with other jobs, stripped it out, carpet, seats, trim, shocks, side skirts !!!, was a horror show under there. From June 4th to Aug 22nd he had it. Have some pics to add once ive sussed it out.. He used 1mm plate everywhere, waxoyl inside, underseal outside. Still needs more Underseal, but going back for that later. She flew through MOT apart from 1 advisory. Filled her up with V power as a treat. Good to have her back on road, Swapping the coilovers over as to harder ride for me, got some red shocks with tein lower springs all off a JDM impreza, rears done just fronts to do now. Got some some things to do, nothing drastic but just want to enjoy the drive for a bit... Waited a year so no rush?
  10. The 02 plate fozzy looked smashing mate, such a tidy engine bay, very clean car overall, a credit to you sir New one looks nice too, good to see some clean ones, not many around!, mine falls in to the untidy bracket unfortunately.. My99 just got it back on road... Long story. Needs alot of TLC now...
  11. Its the S turbo, with a prodrive upgrade which was done around its first service many years ago!. Shes very rotton, £800 so far for the welding, will be fine tho, get body work sorted after... Bit by bit ?
  12. When I suss out to get a recent picture up!!... This is my forester, but back when I previously owned it 2011, bought it back last july... And currently being repaired, sills and jacking points corroded. 175000 miles so far, cant wait to get her back on road, needs some loving,
  13. would this be the similar bit of kit i had on my forester? wasn't quite done at new though, from what i can work out it was at first service. got a nice certificate with it tho, but no badges can imagine your motor is a rare as hens teeth matey, never come across one!
  14. Thats a brilliant bit of info, I will have a look at the website, think no just looked at prodrive in past, but anyway yes exactly same wheels as mine and 215/50/17. The exhaust was done seperate by the looks as its a full unique lifelong system, sports cat and all the way through with no joints to rear box. Has yellow 440 injectors, And a 2c ecu used for the management tweak. Gearbox has close ratio and quick shift, felt more like my old WRX Box than a uk. Desperate to get her on road, needs driving.
