i received the cargo mat today... i'm pretty displeased with shipping but i guess there wasn't many other options. they folded it in 1/3's and the edges are a bit warped as you can see in the pics. also, it only velcros to the rear of the back seats, and when you put the seats down it un-velcros and sides down the back of the seat.
the material is rubber, quite flimsy as you can see from the pics, but it should do the trick to keep it clean back there.
i'll try to get some better pics of it in the car once it settles and gets its edge shapes back.
click image for a few pics
OK I put more pictures of the cargo mat in the car...
Ooh, more stuff came in today - I'll post some more pics later today after I unpack and install the WeatherTech front floor liners... this is probably the last really unneccessary thing I'm doing for a while. Next is tints and clearbra.
Today, Tom (mnym8kr) and I knocked out the following on my car;
- Group-N Engine Mounts
- Group-N Transmission Mount
- Whiteline Steering Rack Bushings
- Kartboy Shifter Bushing Combo
- Grimmspeed Air Oil Separator
- Finished the Goodridge lines install
There is significantly less slop going on under the hood and tranmission whine is quite audible in first through third, which for the moment I quite enjoy. Once at cruising speed though, additional NVH isn't detected.
I believe some forged internals are next up, I'm just too scared to do any power-making mods until I have some 'solid bits' in there. We'll see though, only time will tell.
What's up man I have not been on here in a really long time and saw your latest post come by today... I seen you have done quit a bit to your car!!! I remember the first day you got it. Glad you still have it. I miss the 07 everyday. Anyway hope all is well.. One day I will get another STI.
