Default Srtkr's Pursuit to the perfect DD

Hey guys just keeping this build thread for my own personal records but figured i would share it with you. This is my 4th subaru owned a stock legacy wagon, stock bugeye wrx, slammed forester and now this.

I picked my hawkeye up about 2 months ago after trading my mk6 gti in and been fixing the previous owners mistakes since day one. Here is some info on the car when i got it. 2007 Wrx TR with 54k mods included invidia catless down pipe, hks ssqv, arm CAI intake, apex N1 exhaust (no tune ), sebion carbon hood, APR strut bar, ugly red ebay mud flaps and no name short throw shifter. Car sounded healthy but trans with a little rough but i took the gamble

Here is some dealer pictures


First thing i did was remove the mud flaps once i got home. Next was replacing the shifter with a Kartboy short throw shifter, polyurethane mounts, and a blox 490 shift knob.

tapper for shows and people reactions lol

Second I changed the oil, trans fluid and diff fluid. While i was at it had the car open sourced tuned by Red Mist automotive at 16psi.

I tried to make the bay look a little better so cut the CAI into a short ram (strut bar is all black now)



Next was a v limited rep front lip



I have tons of plans which include a full interior over haul and fitting some flairs and 285's. Im currantly building my srt-4 at the same time as well as welcoming my first son into the world so this wont happen over night but defiantly less then a year

Thanks for looking!

The hardest task i have ever had was tracking down a stock 06/07 hood but luckily found a local willing to trade. Currently its black but ill be having the front end repainted after winter so I'm not worried about it.
While having that off i decided to get rid of the nasty chrome in the headlights so sent the lights off to fat black pig sack and had him do a satan black with yellow high beams. 5k retrofitsource hids and yellow high beam bulbs were added as well.

tucked the harness


Only picture currently will have more tomorrow

I'm gonna plasti dip the flaps black for winter and try to protect the paint, already got the tires just need some rims. And yeah the hood was faded, cracked and had metal wieved into and just was an eye sore. Going to paint the hood and bumper blue after winter. If you look at the last pic there is a nice stress crack in the middle of the bumper.

Here is my pride and joy. 40k, built head, 6262 turbo, wire tucked, caged, stštus seats, ccw lm20's and sponsored by stštus racing.



Bay isn't done yet but close

well past 2 days i got some deals on craiglist. Came across some 05 black wrx door panels in mint condition for $100 bucks. When i got there he has the rear seats in the same condition for $100 bucks also so i had to jump on that. Next i got my son a recaro baby seat for $150 that had never even been used!

Finally went to Jo Ann's fabric and got black suede for 50% off. So got enough for the wrx's headliner, A,B,C pillars and my srt's door panels.

Just so you know, those are the Recaro Speeds, the SRD has a shorter headrest among a few other subtle differences

Yeah unfortunately, from my research they did this with the TR models. Something I want to change but only if I can get a set for a decent price.
