Default Project B.O.B. (Baby on Board) my 04 wrx build

So I wanted to sell my 2003 S2K and look for a wrx or evo. I ended up trading it for a 2004 WRB Subaru Wrx. It does have some rough spots that need some love but the pros out weighed the cons for me at least, and my S2K wasnt perfect so it worked out and im excited to have a four door AWD to haul me and my family. and if i can get it race ready that would be ok too

Current Mods:
Tein Lowering springs
Perrin Intake
STI cat-back
BOV (not sure on brand)
Catless down pipe

PART NEED/WANTED/LOOKING FOR:
OEM 04 tail lights
cat-back exhaust
wheels/tires
sti fog light covers
coilover suspension
front lip
wheel spacers
different shift knob and boot


At a BK ind meet right after i picked it up


Me and Brit oober excited for the new car





Heres the worst of the body buy its getting re-painted


...progress updates and pics:



Pulled of bumper so i can mount it properly, removed radiator to close off un needed lines, and pulled wheels for paint. Also under cross member and oil pan were dented so should have both of those soon.

Prepped and primed

Its handy having a paint room

Wheel color reveiled needs a few more coats

Bronzing in the sun

Not bad for $2 dollars playing cards and $15 spray primer and paint

Great call on the WRX as a family hauler. I came from a miata, then an RX-8. Loving the subie as a compromise car.

Mini-van? We don't need no stinkin' minivan!





Pro-tip: Not sure how tall you are but if you sit in your Solo driving position the baby carrier will fit in back just fine.

damn, I know i wouldn't want my baby in a stiff suspension car with small tires... no offense, but shaken baby syndrome is real and I know my STi was more than stiff enough to oblige.

Well you dont rally with your baby inside the car. A good coilover with adjustable dampining with make it nice and smooth, 90% of trucks and suvs ive driven (lifted or not) ride like complete crap to any car ive owned. I guess being a country farm boy I was raised on bumpy gravel roads, I turned out fine

Thanks for all the kind words guys

No I dont have a recaro baby seat I want one though.

In 6'1'' but luckily my fiancee is only 5'3'' so a baby seat will fit, I usually have my seat in solo position anyways lol

Uhm you won't get shaken baby syndrome doing DD duties in an STI. Shaken Baby Syndrome is really severe. We should know, my wife is a doctor.

I also have coilovers (RCE Tarmac Zeroes) that made the ride the STI much smoother than stock but that mod was more about performance and comfort than worrying about SBS.
