Hey all. I have been waiting for this moment the day I picked my Lego up.

Okay a little history:

Bought the car from a guy on the east cost June of last year. It was in pretty bad shape but it was the exact car I wanted and it was way cheaper then anything for sale around here. Started off with just little mods that I had left over from a few cars that passed through the shop. WRX struts on lowering springs, short ram, borla header and a custom 2.5 exhaust I made using bits an pieces of pipe I had, the cat was part of an 02 wrx exhaust and a Borla muffler. Got some cheap Falken wheels and some tires of an old set I had it was turning out to be a great budget build. After that I just enjoyed it for a while and I had parts from my old wagon that I was trying to sell, including my RA Spec-C tranny swap.

I waited about 2 months to see if I could find a buyer and nothing so I decided to drop the bomb on the Lego and go all out. I wanted to make something that was custom but clean, that had a sense of class about it and was never really done before to a Legacy of this year. I always knew I was going to repaint the car; it had dents on almost every panel and really bad rust holes in the quarter panels. I called the dealer and they wanted WAY too much for them so while rummaging through a buddies shop I stumbled upon a fender that had a really nice flare on it. Turns out it was an OE fender off an 89 Honda Accord. I took the fender home and cut the flare off and put it up to the car and not only did it make a great setup for a nice widebody but also covered about 90% of the rust I was looking to fix. Did some wheel calculations and found a set of 18x9.5 +15 MB Battles and ordered them up. Once I got the tranny swapped I fitted the 06 STi 5x114.3 hubs to it so I could put the wheels on. Later that week my buddy comes back from the pull-a-part with 2 sets of Accord fenders for $80 and I got started. On top of that the front bumper was also modified using portions from a 2003 WRX Zero/Sports bumper that we custom graphed into the front bumper. The rear Bumper also got special treatment. I ordered a used 09 Legacy GT rear bumper and integrated the rear reflector and center exhaust pieces to make a custom 09 Legacy style rear bumper. Other custom parts included a roof mounted antenna off an EVO X, Sporty leather seats out of an 01 Toyota Celica and just recently a custom WRX Hybrid swap with a custom rotated turbo kit.

I built this car as a DD that I could do anything in, Show, Auto X, Track whatever. It’s so far my most favorite car I have owned and it’s also been one of the cheapest builds because I have put more time making custom items for it using parts most people wouldn’t think to use.

Just when I'd gotten over the loss of my BD, you go and make it come right back.

Oh well, amazing looking car! The 95-99 is still my favorite Legacy, whether bone stock or heavily modified.
