WOW! I was searching scoobymods and came across this wag.


definitely needs some rims to compensate for the fender width though, but overall it looks mean

ARGGGHHH!!! why didn't Subaru make em' like this stock???!!!???!

Subaru didn't make them like this stock because no one would buy a sedan

How hard do you think it would it be, to put a sedan wide body kit on a wagon. Would wheel spacers fill enough of the wheel well as well as off set rims, or would the suspension have to be changed to a sedans?

here is my 04 wagon with jdm sti chargespeed 10mm overfenders, doesnt look too out of palce, just need some rims and to roll the rear fenders to fit the rims..



but i do plan on getting a widebody rear end to match the front, i am looking at a fiberglass kit that fit on the doors and rear quarters.
i figure i can have the body shop cut and split the factory rear fenders to make supports for the widebody to fit on, then mold in and paint..

For Twizidunreal: When you said 10mm overfenders, is that 10 mm wider than sedan feders ? If it is wider where did you get them? And where are you getting the rear fender flears? And holy crap your car is going to look awsome!

I am actually going to be the first to go out on a limb and say that I really don't like the sedan fenders on the wagons. I like the wagon the way it is the lines are way more uniform and with the sedan fender it just seems like it is too out of place on the wagon. That is just my opinion I think the bugeye is the only one that really can get away with it.

Yep, they are 10mm wider than the standard sedan fenders. They look aggressive as hell

nice pics and good to hear others constantly debating this. I do this in my head after every meet, one of the biggest pluses now with having wagon fendors is that I have wagon fendors and everyone else is flaired.
One thing I will say is if i get the sedan style fendors I will also add the mid wing, derail and get some type of rear side spat/diffuser combo to try and even everything out.

alright i've been looking into doing this for a while on my 05. I've just been trying to hit a deer though to get me motivated. lol. In looking at one of the first people to do this, i recall that he used the sedan control arms as well because they are longer and fill out the spacing in the wheel well on the wagons. this would be the best way to get rid of that probably.

I have taken a intrest in this over the last month and it seems there could be a lot of cost cut out to do this one, front sedan fenders are only 199$ so thats 400$ plus paint for sedan fenders, then if you wanted to go on to the rear and do things right we would need rear sedan doors 336$ with the flare, then buy sedan quarter pannels that are 139$ but i cant see the full picture to make sure this is the exact part. But most of these things you can get used and make them work with some body skills and or welding. But another idea is to use a widebody kit from a sedan on top of the wagon body you should get an over all narrower car and maximun wheel size but still would gain you something. There are a few options to doing this all expensive, but all will look way better then just putting sedan front fenders on the car. That looks really bad to me, like you gave up on the project.

Now this is someone who really took there time and looked at this from all angles, they used rear sedan quarters but all the way from the door jams and brought it out to match the other lines. The bumper you can stretch out just slightly to match.

Default Please Help A Die Hard Wagon Fan!!!

-> I'm really interested of having "that sedan profile" plus sedan suspention components on my GG7 (aka. 2006) wagon, can someone please list down the things that we need to make this thing a reality. Because it is one of the most frustrating things of modding up the wagon. And if it is possible to have this effect on the wagon?



^ If you guys notice, theres a mini overfender over that sedan's wide profile that is exclusively featured on the '05-'07 STi. Because I would really like to install this on my wagon:



-> Thanks a lot, fellow wagon guys! (:

You would need to put a rear bumper from the STI on the wagon meaning it would need to be recut for the tail lights and old one filled, then you have to deal with the bumper being two wide for the rear of the wagon, and on top of that dealing with the mating of the sedan bumper to a wagon it might not even bolt up. one of the down sides of owning a wagon lots of body work to make it have sedan demensions.
