Default STi conversion possible? Full Outside

Well, long story short, my car got hit hard. 08 Subaru Impreza.
Insurance taking care of bills.

I don't want a car to pay for, so I'm going to buy the car back from insurance for cheap, and rebuild the car.
Impact points: Passenger side(doors, quarter panel, and front fender, and rear bumper.) Driver side: just rear bumper. The motor is fine, tranny is fine.
The car just had front grille, and rear color piece put on, and other stuff.

Instead of sticking with WRX body panels, is it possible to buy 3 doors(driver door OK), two fenders, two bumpers, and two quarter panels and having a body shop mold/weld the quarter panels on from new parts for an STi to put onto mine?
I know its a lot of work either way, and thought might as well do something different.

Oops, yeah, thats my car. 08 Impreza.

No, I'm not going to get a different car. The car's frame is fine, just the left rear bent slightly.

You can swap the whole front as a bolt on.

Fenders, bumper, hood, and fender liners. Rear will be a bit more tricky.

You will need the Rear doors, bumper and quarter panel skins.

You have to cut your rear fender wells out so you can except the larger tires and then weld the new flares on. Shouldn't be to hard but its just a lot of work. I guess at that point all you would need its the wider wheels and spoiler.

DO IT!!!!
