so being a "veteran swapper" means you speak for everyone else? who cares if youve done 1 or 1,000 swaps in the past, your still just 1 useless opinion!


i think this car is coming along great and will be quite unique! which is a breath of fresh air in a sea of typical!

"not boris", keep doing what you're doing. Most of us are enjoying this just as much as you are and think it's gonna be sick.

are you going to somehow incorporate the sedan rear fenders onto the rear of the gc? if no imo the wagon fenders may keep the lines smoother? just food for thought, love the idea, not trying to bash or be a dick.. concepts great best of luck with everything

WHY WOULD YOU ?

Have you ever heard the saying beauty is in the eye of the beholder.Everyone has there own idea of that I think I speak for the 99% of the people that are watching this build how good is it to see so something new someone thinking outside of the box.i would love to do this to mine but one don't have the skill and two don't have the bulls to attempt something like this so will be doing something that has been done before

So why don't you just find another forum to go and be a pain on (and that was me being polite)

Do you thing this looks s--t then???.

Thanks everyone, small update, I had like a gnarly pain yesterday in my abdomen, felt like my appendixz was about to blow up, long story short, I went to the hospital and I have some sort of ridiculous bacterial ulser in my stomach, I can barely funk move. So if build slows down for a bit, sorry. But I appreciate the support, if I get better, Ill be back to tackling this thing on Friday


On a side note, I ordered three HD Hero 2 Go Pros, the motorsports version. Probably will get a few more down the road

I'm cheap, and I don't want to spend $300 on another thing I'll only use a few times a year, even though I want one real bad hahahahahaha.

Edit: Oh who am I kidding I'll prolly use the ish out of it, but I'm still cheap also I own a Subaru and I have the mod bug, or does the Subaru own me?

Yea if there was a way to add flares to the rear I think it would look better.
