Got the parts out of the car. 3 pallets!





The steering shaft/wheel had been removed so I started on the JDM swap. Well the Impreza and Forester shafts are different length's. And mounting brackets are also. I will cut off what I need from the JDM and install on the Forester shaft.



Left is Forester and right is the JDM.




Forester bracket cut off ,next will be to remove the JDM,weld back on.

Some cleaning.
Bolting things down like the lower control arm,front and rear.

Beat the tire area back down. Was used for a jack point.:crazy:

Removed the rear bumper. Its like 42 Lbs. Will build a tube bumper with pull points and a 2"x2" reciver pickup. May need to tow a trailer ?:shake:

For the most point I found alot that needs to be done to the chassis from before.:icon_rolleyes: no big deal !

And just a lot old worn out stuff!





Here are some of the first ideas ?





Input? :icon_redface:

Did some test fitting. Found that the brake buster is bigger on the Forester and has a shorter rod to pedal rod than the Impreza. And a Impreza pedal assy. will not fit. To long at the mounts to the front bulkhead.



Now I will start looking for Forester padel assy.

I believe this Foz is "Teh town bicycle..."

I went with subeSTIle to buy it in stock form with a blown motor,
he eventually monster (471hp / 468tq at 25 psi) turbo swapped it,
time attack raced it,
had a small engine fire on the track, fixed it,
later slid it off the track...
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1847854
Then said he was done with Subaru and parted it out.
He gave me the non-rolling chassis,
I had it for a year, or two,
made into a rolling chassis with spare BD Leggy parts,
and then sold it to some one in Tucson.
He turbo swapped it from his wrecked bugeye,
and then saw it for sale not long after,
that was the last I heard of it.

I'm glad to see it being wrenched on again.

That's probably why there's no chassis spacers


Did ya check these ksport coilovers out...
http://ksportusa.com/b2c/products.php?cat=294
...lil cheaper and they're local too.

You can call me if you have anymore questions on the details.

Thanks for the link,Barry! Tanner said you would have the info on the chassis.

Could you keep a eye out for a padel set (Manual) ?

Thanks again!

Working on the dash. Making the JDM fit the Forester. Here is a look at the bottom of a JDM and a Forester.



And temp shot of the JDM cover plate.





Need to build some brackets for the gauge system , and do some fitting still.

Looks good man! I really like how the cover plate has places for switches. Kind of a good spot for them.
