Default My wagon is here...

Just got here from Virginia on Tuesday
It's a '95 GF8 chassis with an 03 USDM EJ205 and full 04 WRX driveline.
GR2's and Tein springs
Whiteline rear strut bar
Swaybars
Lightened flywheel
WRX/hydraulic pedal assembly
Kartboy Short Shift
Hella 500 foglights
revised 'RS' front end and STi lip
OEM sideskirts
02-03 WRX front seats










I need a TBE for it, so if anyone has one laying around for ridiculously cheap (or free) let me know, or I'll just have to wait till next pay day...

First off I'm going to get it running right and clean up the engine bay. Then my plans are to clean everything else up; body work, paint job, and the interior. Get a new wheel set up, or just new tires (the 6 spokes are growin on me.)

Future plans: Nothing too crazy, it's going to be a DD, so just little bolt ons here and there.

nice man! I bet it's nice back in the boost area again, and I like those wheels they look good on the car.

Yes I definitely plan on repainting after I get the dents pulled and the sideskirts mounted right.

Yeah that thing looks good, If you do a flat white may I suggest a satin clear I have seen many cars in satin and it looks very nice and not to rattel canned.

Clean up the engine bay and interior, but leave the exterior looking beat up. Gotta love piece-of-junk looking sleepers. With it looking like that on the outside nobody is going to pay it a bit of attention.

What is wrong with your current transmission. If I get a chance I would be willing to help out. I have pulled a few.

Wait, so you changed the diff fluid and found shavings? Meaning the rear diff? Or? Because if it is just the rear diff thats broken, just get a new rear diff.

Well, he did say that the trans locked up. Though how shavings from the trans would get into the rear dif I have no idea. Maybe both are shot... that would suck.
