So after having my 07 wrx for about 4 years now I finally decided to get a newer rex. I have always bought vehicles from salvage auctions for the great deals and the enjoyment of getting to tear them apart and fix it. After searching IAA auctions for months I finally found a 17 wrx limited with little under 10k miles. I won the bid at 10k and estimated roughly about 5-7k in repairs. The car was a rollover and from the pictures online looked a really light rollover. The day comes and my car shows on a flat bed and like a kid at christmas I couldnt be any more excited. The truck pulled into the driveway and I saw the car and said F***. The prior company that had bought the vehicle did an absolute awful job at repairs to make it look good in the photos. So now my quick 5k 1 month project. The bondo or and paint really hid the extensive damage that has been done. I am about 5 months into the build and slowly making progress as I work 2 full time jobs but thought I would show you a before and during and start posting progress as I go.

Feel free to ask any questions! I will be uploading more pictures as I go.
Current plan is to do a full color swap going from the Lapis blue to a Gm red "pull me over red" if you want to see exact color. I got a little itchy and had to buy some bolt ons even though its not ready yet, but I bought Cobb APv3 Cobb air intake full 3inch turbo back exhaust.
I wish I had more exciting plans but for now its just getting back on the road! :cool:
