Sorry to be that person but...

The 2-door 2.5RS is NOT a gc8. It's actually a GM6. Not that a little detail like that matters though.

Subscribed, awesome build so far.

Lol, how was that hating? I clearly said I subscribed to the thread and that it was awesome so far.

I shouldn't have said anything about the gc/gm stuff. Also like I said before, it's not an important detail.

Anyway, again, sick project. Can't wait to see it when it is done.

Its just Subaru, we leave it at that haha

I try to help out and give ideas, but I am not a welding expert, especially when it comes to make sure the new will be rigid enough for time attack and very hard & aggressive driving.

Heres a few more updates.





going to start matching up the front end tommorow

Car is looking sick! I'm glad the carbon fiber doors and gauge made it to you in a prompt and safe enough time.

Keep up the great work. If you need anything else, then you know who to call!
