    It's been a long time, but I finally got it on the road!

    The final list has been:
    Rear subframe
    Oil pan hammered out
    Rear wheel bearings
    Front corner lights
    Front body frame areas were straight enough according to a different shop, but it failed because of the welds as seen above. Stripped the welds down, rewelded, painted, rust coated, and it was good enough.

    So I treated the car to a set of FRS TRD RS2.0 wheels and a 3" exhaust is on the way in the mail!

    This happened:

    So I bought an XSpower st165/st185 3" catback to replace the whole deal. Now it sounds super nice. It has a deep tone at idle and below 3k rpm, above that it growls at you. Very similar to the factory mr2 turbo exhaust so it's still very much oem-sounding as well as oem-looking.

    Some areas will need massaging: under oil pan, under footwell, above rear subframe. Otherwise, very impressed.

    Those exhaust systems go on sale every once in a while. Looks great! How long did it take you to install?

    it took me about an hour to remove the old exhaust (i had already cracked them loose at work on a hoist then retightened to drive home).
    it took about another hour and a half to put the new one on.

    Took the car up to Whistler BC for a trip this past weekend. Tons of fun and tons of grip! WhatsApp Image 2017-12-21 at 2.21.53 PM.jpeg WhatsApp Image 2017-12-21 at 2.22.06 PM.jpeg WhatsApp Image 2017-12-21 at 2.22.19 PM.jpeg

    I have the Goodyear Nordics on all 4 corners and it's virtually unstoppable in the snow

    The ol' rear window leak and water in the rear speaker! I gotta seal up my windows too. I'm sure I've got the same thing going on (again). Looks like you got a litre of water outta there!
