It's not a 2 door, it just loses the rear handles with the widebody conversion.

Great Project! You guys use a older Cheif rack at your work? We have a couple too.
Anyway good luck with the build.

Thanks. I call her old faithful. I have used a lot of newer racks, and that one has been the best. It is a little on the short side, but hasn't failed me for over five years now.

Nice, I have used ours for quite some time also.... Although it is all I have ever known. P.S. It is good to see some body work done correctly for a change.....

I want to thank Charles at Safe Drives. He helped me finally find somewhere to get my car acid dipped, and is very helpful in safety equipment.
I will call you tomorrow to order the roll cage.

I ordered a 10 point DOM roll cage from Safe Drives for it. The car and parts are finally starting to come together.
Here is where I left off. The quarter panel is cut up and ready to start fabbing some new pieces and weld them in. I will be working on the lower front section of the quarter and brake vent this weekend.

Here are a few pictures of the left rocker. After looking at the right side I don't like how it looks and needed to add something. I have thought about many different ways to extend the rockers. I even looked at rockers from other cars but decided to build my own.
This picture is the top of the rocker after cutting off the old rocker I extended it out three inches.


This picture is of the front of the rocker main section.


Here is the rest of the rocker. It is going to look good when it all blends into the fender and quarter panel.

I'm assuming that tube is some kind of brake duct? If so, would it not be more efficient in terms of weight to just have a metal inlet and then use a flexiable plastice ducting?

Nice work. Did you roll and weld that tube for the brake duct?

So after you are all done do you have a guess as to how much this thing will weigh or how much weight you will have added?

I am not sure of the weight yet. I am going to have it acid dipped which will loose some weight. After I get the cage done I plan on removing a lot of extra metal that will no longer be needed. But that is a ways away. I am also looking into a CF roof. It would be a lot easier to weld the roll cage in without the roof on, so a CF roof would be sweet for saving weight.
I did make the brake vent. I was going to go buy a tube for it, but decided I would make my own instead of trying to find some tube that was thin enough. As for the plastic tube I will use that from the wheel well to the brakes. The tube doesn't weigh much at all. This is my first time building something like this so it is all learning for me.

A stock "L" roof is less than $300 and it's pretty light, as far as roofs go. I looked into a CF roof, and the costs for building one were kinda silly, for what little weight is saved. The biggest weight savings on re-roofing is getting rid of the sunroof, if you have one.

Here is where I left off tonight. The lower left quarter still has a lot of welding to do, but I am liking the left rocker and quarter better than the right side. But it sure is going to be a lot of body work.

It is a lot of work. But when it is done and I am driving it is when it will all pay off.


But on a side note, the Impreza is on hold for awhile. With Christmas and out of welding gas it isn't making much progress. But I am buying a house and relocating back to Salem Oregon. So this will be on the back burner for a couple of months. But the good thing is that the house I am buying has somewhat of a shop and I don't have to worry about making to much noise. No neighbors to make mad there.
