Default Jeremy's Crystal White Pearl Blobeye build thread

I have been wanting to make one of these for a while and now that I have internet access I will. Here is how the car sits now to peak your interest.
Subaruru by Jeremy J King, on Flickr

The day I brought it home:


Up to this point I had put the summer wheels and tires on, put a front lip on, and the front splitters, bc coilovers, and made an axle back:


I then bought a set of 2 piece ssr sp1's. I wanted them to be wider so cut them in half. (the lips and barrels come welded) and ordered new 3" lips from wheel flip which was a giant fiasco. Would never recommend them. Also painted them a metallic silver.




Then picked up a set of evo x recaros and had no idea what I was getting myself into. They had blown bags so I took the covers off to remove the bags and had them stitched up.

Then did a few small maintenance things throughout the summer. And then it came time to paint it. I was originally going to repaint it the java black pearl. but after a trip to the dealer and seeing a new legacy in crystal white pearl I was sold. I went to the paint supplies store and told them what I wanted and they looked at me strange and said ok. Turns out its a tri coat paint job which I had no idea. I bought it anyways. My dad is the one who was going to help me with the paint and he was not happy with my decision. lool. Anyways I started the tear down and body work.









I also purchased 05 wrx black carpet and rear seat to go with the recaros:


more progress:

Removed the amber from the headlights:


The first day driving it to work again:


Here are some photos form today. It is extremely dirty and still have more buffing to do but I could not wait to share. I have to give a huge thanks to my dad for guiding me through this. I did everything by myself except the pearl coat because I have 0 experience with it. It's not perfect but it is mine. Feels good.

interior still needs detailed badly.










Still have to get a new windshield and molding due to cracking it when taking the molding out. Also have to put the front lip on. and redo the axle back with a piece of stainless. Thanks for looking!

How was the smell? LOL! Sprayed a bike in the garage once... it was terrible. Ended up doing 1 fender and then handed it off to a buddy to do the rest at his work place.

It wasn't too bad. I did wear a mask. My dads garage is like a 4 car garage. I got the front splitters on and front lip. Got it buffed and a quick wax.
Have some my photos to post after I can get them uploaded

Paint match the brembos, color looks sweet, I've always liked whites with subtle pearls.

My daily kia optima is Snow White pearl, that color is awesome too!

Love the ssr professors, planning to get new stickers for them?

Thanks. Yea I need to do something with the calipers either way they're scuffed up. Color matching wouldn't be a bad idea. I do have stickers just haven't had a chance to put them on. Also have the original center caps but they stick out to far and look cheap. So either going to buy the updated ones or machine some.

I bought an rs to drive this winter. So now I am in the process of doing a little restoration of the under carriage. Has surface rust on the subframe and cradle etc. I am going to be sandblasting them and repainting them just to clean up underneath.
Also polished the shifter trim.

Also started making a custom weighted shift knob. Made from stainless and wrapped in leather. Just have to finish up the top cap and bottom sleeve to hide the edges of the leather.

I've also refinished the axle back with a piece of 3.5" stainless. The aluminzed looked ****ty after a month.

So hanging the exhaust way out the back was intentional?

Started cleaning up underneath. Had the subframe and diff cradle sand blasted Along with all the other bits and pieces except the axles and diff (not sure what to do about them yet) painted everything with por 15 and chasis black. I also added whiteline adjustable lateral links, kartboy endlinks, and the perrin lock down system. Now just need to get swap bars and move to the front end.

Finished up my shift knob with a polished stainless cap and lower sleeve. This picture also show's how terrible my app radio is.


Also got a set of HT Auto extensions and painted them matte black. Now to do something with the rear.

I finally got a new radio. Pioneer AVH x4700bs. It stopped working with 2 weeks. Luckily I got it from amazon so had no problem getting a replacement. I also replace the 12v outlet with a usb port and aux port that are plugged into the radio.


a picture from over the weekend after a local meet.

I used the evo sliders and cut the mounting brackets off then cut the mounting brackets off the subaru sliders and welded them onto the evo brackets.

if you cut all of the stock evo brackets off of the sliders, the holes line up very closely to the holes in the sparco brackets, I just had to dremel the holes larger in a couple spots
