I would be interested in the steering wheel with air bag. No rush,

HillbillyChili. If you are retro-fitting the armrest to a non-armrest car, you'll also need the center console and bracket that goes underneath it. These are different for the arm rest option.

UkCooper. Will you be using the rear wiper? If not, is in good condition and available?

Okay cool, I have three more points events this year. After the last one I am going to start on meatier stuff like the airbags/sunroof etc. just in case it takes longer than expected so that way I have all the offseason. I will send you a PM once I have the OE wheel off.

If you need the center console too, I can probably figure something out to keep dirt out but I might have to wait till the off season then, depends on which parts you need. Do you know which numbers on the realoem chart are needed?

I can pull the rear wiper, I don't use it very often and the car is garage kept so the rubber isn't out in the sun but I am not really sure how much life the blade has... the mechanism works. Do you want the whole thing, arm, squirter etc or just the blade part?

I just need the motor, not the arm or the blade.

Okay cool. The car is at the shop getting the custom exhaust made to go on the back on the long tube but once I get it back I will start pulling stuff off. You have a post face lift car right? iirc my r50 was pre-facelift and had a different rear wiper. I could be wrong though. My r53 is post lift.

Yea, I imagine I will need everything to hold that armrest. Let me know if you get it pulled so I can see how exactly this puppy attaches. I will look for a guide or video and see if I can figure it out as well. Will keep you posted.

Just a quick update. After talking it over with the local race shop and their conversations with Jan, sounds like with the stock cam/head/injectors my car has that the shorty is the better choice and the long tube would lose power on a basically stock motor. Right now I am in a mod points based class not a power to weight one, so no cams/head etc. Eventually a few years out I might go into one of those classes route but not in the near term and maybe not in the r53 so I ordered a shorty and will mate that up to my jcw exhaust (sorry if anyone had their eye on that). Should have everything arriving this week just in time for the next event. I am still planning on stripping what folks want and what I can, the pace of which will accelerate a lot once the season ends and I have weekends free again.

It has begun! I have the rear interior out, stereo amp, passenger seat, 3 seatbelts, b and c pillars, and rear wiper. Just the bolts are like 15lbs and the passenger seat nearly killed my back! This is more fun than installing stuff lol

The driver seat, seat belt, and steering wheel are going to have to stay so I can easily get it to the shop, in a couple weeks, but this coming weekend is:
head unit/speakers
a-pillars
headliner (maybe the sunroof motor if I can figure out how – shop will replace the glass)
front carpet
center console

Then later ac compressor after I order a replacement pulley
