    Before Powder coat???????????

    I have 5 things to do before I powder coat the chassis.
    1. STI Spindle Brackets Done
    2. VRaptor Spoiler mount Done
    3. 11ga sheet under the seat that has recessed bolts.
    4. Seat mounts
    5. FIA approved seat belt mounts

    Anything that you think I forgot?

    What did you use for seat belt and seat mounts? What kind of harness are you using? The powder coat looks awesome, BTW.
    818C chassis #546. Ordered 8/14/18, picked up 10/6/18.
    Donor: 2006 WRX wagon, 108k miles.
    Options: Chassis powder coat, CF street splitter, rockers diffuser, and spoiler, polished shift knob, adjustable rear lower lateral control arms, vinyl padded dash/door upgrade, complete carpet set, battery cut-off switch, wiper kit, aluminum shifter assembly, complete CV axles, harness bar mount, matte gunmetal wheels.

    Would love to see some pictures of your FIA seat belt mounts.

    Too late now, I know, but the only other thing I recommend is making the 1" square diagonal braces above the engine removable - makes installing/working on the engine 100% easier. Might require some welding, but you could probably figure out a bolt-in solution, too.

    Thanks guys little late:
    1. I did the x braces.
    2. I spent forever jacking around seat location, it is finally mounted where it is staying. I need to weld in a couple pieces of steel for the seat belt plates. Will post.
