  1. Been trying for a few days to teach myself how to weld sheet metal and fuck me it's hard. Super good at making swiss cheese though.
  2. At some point I'm going to pick one up for the same reason. I can throw an engine together like its nothing at this point but I fucking dread having to do ball joints/bushings. As for lighting, I went with two of these guys: https://m.lowes.com/pd/Lithonia-Lighting-1233-Linear-Shop-Light-Common-4-ft-Actual-5-5-in-x-48-in/1000410165 i just got them in the mail though and havent had a chance to try them out, I'll throw up a before and after if I remember. I rent a "bay" in a barn so the lighting is absolutely terrible so anything is an improvement. Plus it is hard to beat for 50$ in all.
  3. Disiac, I am jelly. And I have been nuts with the credit card recently. Bought side skirts for the Impreza, garage lights, and about 250$ in Harbor Freight to buy a bunch of bodywork tools/supplies.
  4. Picked up a 99 Impreza L bumper and a lip for it for 80$. Have a lead on a set of side skirts so hopefully I'll be picking those up too.
  5. Got the engine into the subie last week with the help of my brother. Ran great, no valve tick or knocking, then noticed that it was pissing oil from the back of the engine and burning up on the exhaust. So this weekend I will be pulling the motor again by myself to reseal the god damn oil separator plate (or the rear main seal).
  6. A perfect 70f
  7. Finished assembling the WRX block today, should be in the car and running sometime Thursday. Also figured out how wonderful a nice tap can be.
  8. 100$ Engine Hoist 534$ for a bunch of subie parts
  9. Picked up a 2 ton engine hoist for 100$ on craigslist. Tonight or tomorrow I am going to buy everything required to put the WRX block into the subie. Update: Just dropped $534.11 on car parts, woot.
  10. Software Engineer. I currently write software for flight displays and for other boxes that interface with them, mostly using C and Vxworks.
  11. Picking up a set of MB Weapon wheels (17x7) for the subie tomorrow, 170$ for a set of 4. Random pic of them on a car that is not mine.
  12. Buying my own shit and having a place to put it. Which is why I have engine parts all over my apartment.
  13. Was interested in how much progress you guys had made so I took a quick look at your repo. Its quite empty, is that it so far or have you guys just not committed anything?
  14. Wrote a program for work that automates setting boot parameters for our embedded target via serial cause fuck hyperterm/putty and spending the 30 seconds to do it manually.
  15. Finally dropped off the WRX block at the machine shop along with the heads and it isn't going to cost me a fortune to get everything done. Plus I shouldn't need new pistons, so that is also a good sign.
