Default What Color is this?

I just picked up this car last week and im trying to bring it back to life. I was wondering what color was this.
Does not seem to be Black Granite Pearl
What else did the 2000 GT Wagon come in?






Anyone else have this color?

hmmm could be repainted. If your looking for a paint code and you can't find it, any autobody paint supply store can take their little color gun to it and get you a very close formula for paint.

I have never seen a stock Lego painted that color before.

Nice im going to have to go check when i get back to the stop.

Has anyone ever tried a front end swap on these cars?
I bought the car for a winter beater and i want to keep it but i seriously dislike the front end. Could one put a different Legacy front end or Impreza on there?

Not sure what sort of look you want, but the Outback front bumper should be a direct swap, AFAIK.

outbacks look good because of the 2 tone. So that bumper would look just as bad.

From my research, looks like the 3rd gen Legacies are longer and wider than the 2nd gen which are my fav.
I'm going to have to sell it and get a 2nd gen.

It's not black granite for sure cause my OB is and it's black with a plum/purple pearl in it. Hard to say what color that is...

Have you seen an Outback that's not 2-tone, or a Legacy with an Outback bumper on it? Or are you just assuming what it would look like?

Good thing you did your research!
I think i have been searching for pictures of BE/BH5 for 2 weeks on this site and LGT.com and i have only seen one with single color outback bumper.

If you have any pictures can you post them?

Thx.

Pickup a ~ $5 tube of Subaru "54A" touch up paint and paint a small section of paper to check the colour match... and if it is close use it to touch up those minor bumper scuffs.

i got to take a better look at the car. It's been painted. The initial color was black. Some one decided to go gray.
