Default GC trimmin' the fat.

I'm building a '97 GC that look's great and get's even better MPG(small motor).I want it to look like a '97 wrx when it's done.I picked it up for $400 in Jax FL

It's pretty beat up,I think it was used as a trash can for a year.

startin' to pull it apart.


the inside is in bad shape.

it's gettin' new(used) interior.

They do transfer the energy to either side of the car, which has substantially more rigidity than the center.

i used to have another subaru that i was sliding around in the snow and i "went into" a snow bank. long story short i got the car out of the bank with NO visible damage. i think those supports under the skin are helpfull but heavy.

The bumper beams,hmmm,it could go either way,the parts car I'm usin' is from a friend he totaled the car on the interstate in the rain,he went backwards into a divider the bumper beam was straight but the whole car was bent,frame roof everything.The JDM gc's have no bumper beam's at all whatever that mean's.

555 blue (53C I believe), it's a solid non metallic blue that only came on a special edition 555 ver 3. It was the same blue on Colin McRae's old car.
