How she sits now... GNARCAR


Gettin sideways



And here the journal starts.... I bought er in july 09... Here is how my project has progressed as a broke college student/professional kayaker.
The second day I had Gnarcar I snapped some photos... I fell in love with the car the moment I sat in it.



The first day I got 'er we went rafiting to celebrate.

Some photos from today... gotta love colorado and subies.




Donuts!

Shortly after I bought the fozzy, I plasti-dipped the grill and blacked out the headlights.


Stock Radiator Cracked at 88,000 miles, Gimmick Motorsports Radiator installed.

Looks like this, A little cleaner setup now with less top rad hose shenanigans.
For more info see here http://www.subaruforester.org/vbulle...llation-59466/

Shortly after I replaced my radiator, I installed a forester specific Kartboy short shifter, front and rear bushings, and shift knob.

Day after the Install, I took Gnarcar out and snapped some shots.


Loved the new stance, and handling was improved a lot.
