    Today I fit the JDM front bumper cover as I am having a person from Subaru of America come and take photos with the possibility of doing a article on the project, unfortunately I do not have the correct bumper support etc for it but I want it to look as it will when it's finished. I have also finished almost all the trim on the car, the front cowl and rear wheel arch trim pieces are on and the trim above the front and rear windscreens are in place. The window washer bottle and hoses are in and I have a lot more parts comming from Subaru soon to finish a lot of the small detail pieces

    I can't imagine there will be an original part left on this car when you are done... It's like brand new car!!!

I also change the porting a little on the factory ones which should give some gains also.
    I will post more as I go but this is where the project is right now, still heaps of time to be put into the engine but also I am going to completely strip out drivetrain and paint underside of car, then go through all the pieces and paint then fit them back into the car with a new engine and a planned wrx Ra six speed close ratio box behind the EJ20
    Wow man! amazing! By the looks of the picture with all the rust, I thought this car wouldn't be able to able to restore, but wow! You did an amazing job! I am not a mechanic so all that rust just scare me away XD Good job! Forgot to add how much it cost you to buy the car? and how much al the parts cost you

    Today I received some parts from FedEx that I was very happy about, these are parts I had custom made by my friends at Aerodine Composites and they give the original set up a much more finished look. I am very happy with the result

    Above is the original set up

    This weekend I was busy on the Legacy, I have painted the Trans Mount and the Diff and made a rear Strut brace out of a 2005 STI Impreza Brace.
