Project 7 - Update #3 / Overview (Con't):

Engine back in after:
-Replacing missing rear cam cover
-Removing aftermarket motor mounts and installing OEM
-Installing OEM Exhaust Manifold, O2 and A/F Sensors
-Installing new drive belt




Now to repair the core support

Test fit and adjustments to match OEM measurements:


Right and Left Radiator Supports welded up and color matched:


Assembling with parts I have:






And a little preview of the interior additions:


Currently waiting on quite a few things before I can continue...
Ran out of paint before I was able to paint the new front bumper beam, Radiator T-Brace and left fender support...
Car came with no front end so I keep having to order bolts and brackets to install other components...
Headlights, Left Fender, Hood, Airbox and more are all here waiting to be installed...as well as a complete 2017 BRZ Performance Pack Suspension.

Airbag module and seatbelts have been sent to MyAirbags.com for repair/reset.

Still need to find/get: Cat-Back Exhaust, Wheels & Tires, Steering Wheel Airbag, front bumper components, battery, hold-down, windshield, etc.

Today I will be: installing the over-pipe, replacing a stripped front wheel stud, evaluating brake system, cleaning interior, replacing cabin filter...

Today got the 2017 Performance Pack struts & springs installed, flushed and bled the brake fluid, replaced a broken lug stud, replaced both rear trailing arms (bent from the salvage yard forklift), reattached the underbody fuel line protector, installed the aluminum engine undercover, bought a set of BRZ Series Blue STI wheels and tidied up as much as I could.

Now in a holding pattern till more paint and more parts arrive.

Project #7 - Update 6:

First drive, went to Wawa to buy some Non-ethanol fuel to dilute the E85 in the tank


New windshield installed


Pulling half the dash again to fix a loose wire at the ECM that was causing the P0453 code...



Repaired wire, CEL went off!

Drove it to work today and got another code on the way home, P0353-Cylinder 3 Ignition Coil issue. Replaced it this evening. Car gets inspected by the state of Florida next Thursday!
