    ^^ Thanks!! Keep in mind though, my bodywork is FAR from perfect. There are lots of imperfections. With that though, it's 1000 times better than it was when I bought it. I've done little bits of body repair over the years, but NEVER anything this extensive. Christ... this car is made out of half plastic - LOL. I'm not a bodywork guy at all.... but I'm pretty proud of it

    Fuel economy? I have no idea. I just filled up today for the first time since October I think. I am driving it every day though... I'll try to keep track.

    I'm not crazy about the bodystyle of the later-year Brats. Admittedly though, parts availability and modification potential is a LOT higher.

    I'm not selfish with my build threads. Post it up!! Let's see what you bought!!

    Good luck!!

    Honestly.... Haven't even really started looking into it, With the move to TX coming up, just kinda fell off my list of priorities. I'll start tinkering with it again once the move is over.

    Gotta buy wheels + tires for it first.... then re-drill and re-lug it... then I can start figuring out exactly how low I can go with it.

    Brat is for sale.

    Did some thinking... soul searching..... and realization that the Gov't won't ship it to TX for me.

    Kinda wanting to get into another project anyway. It's been fun. Hopefully whoever buys it takes care of it.

    To be dead honest...I really wish I had the cash. Goodluck with the sale, and sad to see her go!

    But I look forward to your next build thread

    Just wanted to say thanks for the HUGE amount of interest I've received on this car in the past 24 hours since I listed it. I was confident that there would be a few interested parties, I had no idea it would generate as much interest as it has though. I've received several emails complimenting me on my work as well, which means a lot considering I have quite a bit of blood and sweat into this quirky little car. So thank you.

    With that, I did get a couple questions regarding my lack of photos of the underside of the car. Understandably so, as these things are notorious for having rotted frames and floorboards, virtually rendering them unsafe to drive, or worthy of owning/restoring.

    In response, I just finished making a 3rd video of the underside of the car, to include the underside of the engine, transmission, rear differential, exhaust, floorboards, and frame. The link to the video is posted in the auction, so please take a few moments to watch it when you get a moment. Hopefully it should ease any concerns you may have about the structural integrity of this car.

    Thanks again!

    Wow.... um..... way to be "discreet" about shamelessly promoting your car there.... Thanks for that. Not just one or two posts.... but three of them. Oh look... you only have 3 posts total on ClubWRX too.... wow, and you used them all on me?

    Good luck..... hopefully this got you some undeserved publicity.

    eBay member "seventy_four"..... I would strongly suggest you block him as a bidder on any of your auctions.

    He was the winning bidder, and then 30 minutes after the auction closed, I got a "Sorry, I wanted to buy it, but I cant - sorry for any inconvenience" email from him.

    He now has an unpaid item strike against him, has been blocked, and is being investigated internally by eBay for fraud. In the meantime, I have no choice but to relist it.

    Here is the new auction:
