Default Wagon Wide Body

I have heard of people putting wide fenders on a wagon, therefore allowing them to use sedan body kits, and a really unique look. I just wanted to not what was involved in this process, such as what parts are needed, and costs. Thanks

yeah, i tried to search, but i could not find the right wording. I searched "Wagon Wide Body" and like "Wagon Body Kits" and stuff along those lines, but couldnt really specify the search.

There are no kits for wagons. Anything you will get is custom.

Im pretty sure i read a way that people took the fender wide body kits from the sedan and put them on the wagon though, for a relativly cheep price.

You have to buy the sedan bumper and fenders, then buy whatever body kit you want to stick onto those, then get the whole thing mounted, gapped, and painted to match.

ok, so i found out how to do the front end properly, and hopfully i will be doing it this summer. The only thing that i could not find is how to clearly do the rear end conversion. I know that it is alot more expensive, but how exacly do you do it.

You buy donor panels off a trashed sedan, pay big bucks and get a very skilled body man to add them onto your wagon. I've been looking into it too. Basically they're going to cut out the wagon rears, weld in the sedan ones and then blend the two and repaint. There's a couple of guys on here that did it to 02/03 and 04/05, I've yet to see an 06/07.

IIRC, the 02/03 was a WRB WRX and the 04/05 was an OBP WRX (with an sti swap). I believe there are pictures of both in the wagon thread. I'll see if I can find a link for you.

I had talked to body shop about doing this. The front was going to be easy, the rear was going to be a PIA. The shop was going to order the rear quaters and cut, shape and install them. The time line was going to months and cost, both arms and legs.

I might have been mistaken on the colour: "Bad Wagon" has a wide body rear 04.

Johann's wagon is legit. From what I understand, he did all the body work himself.

I'm suprised nobody has brought forth the IAG wagon in progress: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1464370

Here is a link to the IAG Performance Widebody currently being built:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1464370

Should give you a good insight into what's entailed in doing a wide wagon project.

I have no new pics of this setup, but there's an owner in Russia with a 9-2X that added some widebody fender flares to his 9-2X.

Yea okay, pull your pants up. The 9-2X front-end looks the best out all the WRX wagons that were available. The only thing better IMO is a bugeye WRX wagon with sedan fenders and EDM/JDM projectors, but stock for stock, 9-2X wins hands down.
