Project update......
One part of the project with this Legacy has been to rebuild all the parts that will not be going back on the car and sell them, It has added a significant amount of work to the project, however I hope that it will keep one or more Legacys out there running.
I am currently rebuilding the original 2.2 SOHC engine, last weekend I crack checked the crank, Cams, rods , pistons and pins and assembled block and measured bearing clearences
I also stripped and cleaned the heads and faced the valves and cut the seats, I think I will do a little clean up inlet and exhaust port work as the casting are very rough!

Today was a busy day, I modified a hood scoop to let more air into the engine bay and I plan on cutting luveurs into the panel on the inside of the hood to help lower temp of engine bay/intercooler. I also spent some time blending the ports on the original 2.2 cyl heads, they are very rough castings. Finally I stripped and inspected my original transmission, It looks in great shape so I will replace the seals and put it back together

I have had a few people ask me about removing the trim so I will post a few photos that will show what holds the trim in place, once the rubber door seals are removed and the screws removed from the channel that retains the door seals, then the trim can be removed from the clips. There is a nut on the rear corner window trim that needs to be removed from the inside of the car, so the inside trim piece needs to be removed to get to it, I have taken a photo of that so it will make sence

The last photo shows the trim with the channel removed, you can see that the screws go through the trim !

Now for a project update, I have fit most of the trim on the car, I am missing the trim on the left front door(center moulding) and both rear doors I need the trim that runs against the glass. I have most of the fuel system in except for needing a few clamps to finish the job. I have all the window regulators in and all the glass and door seals installed as well as the locking Mechanisims. I fit the window wiper mechanism back in place and all the lock mechanisim back in place in the trunk.
Here's the photos

Hi everyone, well I finally have an update, I have the front Sub frame painted and fitted to the car. I have to get a steering rack from a 05-07 Impreza STI and also need to modify a intermediate steering shaft to fit between the column and the rack as I have been told these are different spline on the Legacy Column compared to the Impreza. The front Bar set up is great, there are four positions on the ARB Arms to Adjust the bar from a soft to firm position (the Softest setting being the hole furthest away from the bar at the end of the arm which is where there is the most leverage action on the bar) also the splined bar itself can be easily changed.
Here are a few photos of the Subframe in place
