Default 06 WRX Built by DOE NASTY

I grew up in a family of mechanics. My Grandfather owns his own Auto-Body/Towing shop, Radford Auto, so I started working there at 16 years old. Built an Acura, wrecked it. Built a Maxima, but it didn't make me happy. So, strapped for cash, I hit the salvage action and watched totaled WRX's and STI's go for a fortune ($5,000-$9,000+). Then finally a 2006 WRX rolls threw and we win the bid at $3,009.





Got it back to the shop and got right to work. Tore it down, checked out the damages, and started ordering parts. The car was hit in the side so hard, we had to do days of pulling on the main body and frame. A lot of it wouldn't pull, so we had to cut the side out and get a new side from the junkyard. We cut from the wheel well to about halfway down the drivers seat all the way up to the windshield post.





Got that mess sorted out, did all the body work, and pulled it into the paint booth.





After the paint job, I pulled it in the garage to put back together. I also had to do some engine maintenance to fix all the problems from the last owner. (Oil leak, power steering pump, etc.).





After three months of working on it everyday after work and (most) weekends, I was done and ready to drive.





Did the clutch last weekend at 145k miles, now I'm currently waiting on parts to continue building. Total money spent so far, about $5,500.

Lots of good work there and you saved a GD!

Personally not feeling the two tone paint job but it's clean. Good luck and enjoy the car.

It's the regular subaru white.. I didn't paint the whole car so there was no color change when it comes to the white.

It's your car, it's up to you, if you like it, good for you. Let your wife pick your clothing, your taste is terrible. Your car all in its original color looks better than what you've done. Thanks for rescuing a gd.

Ohhh, I get it. You're one of those guys that thinks everything needs to be basic AF. Or you're one of those older guys that never had a sense of creativity so now you're mad at the world if something is different than usual. Hmm.. I wonder which one.
I'm 20 years old, I build cars for a living so if I gotta paint pretty much my whole car I figure, why make it look like all the others when I could make it unique.
But, I see where you're coming from. Stay basic man, it makes us that want to make something our own look better.

By the way, does your wife pick your clothes? You're probably one of them Walmart shoppers huh? Wranglers and a button up? Vans with a white T? You probably get your clothes from Ross huh? The clearance rack is probably your best friend. You probably watch fast n furious 1 and try to jack their style on eBay. I bet you're the first one in the store when North Face drops a new zip up jacket line. Ken Block is probably your idol, you got 3 D.C. Hats and 4 shirts huh? Your basic ass shouldn't talk about other people's taste. Hahaha

I don't mind the gold stripe, my preference would have been to keep the stripe the same width throughout and all a matching stripe on the spoiler. The wheels and side vent may be a tad much for me but to each their own.

It's unique and too many members here bash people for doing some different. Excellent job with the rebuild. What future plans are you wanting to do?

Wow, Ive never seen someone get so in their feelings. Its the internet kid, relax, not everyone is going to love your car.

Your immaturity in responses shows that you are definitely 20.

Side note: Being original and tacky are 2 different things. Not everything original looks good. You posted your car online, sorry that not everyone is sucking off your average/tacky "build".

Very impressed with the bodywork. Kudos to resurrecting it. Unfortunately, the gold accents killed it for me.

Take it easy on your comments. Not everyone is going to like your car and if you get butt hurt easily, maybe showing it on the internet is a bad idea.

This

Just cause you did something different, doesn't mean it's good...

But whatever, it's your car. If you like it, that's what matters... even if it does kinda look like a Power Ranger.

Killer job on the bodywork, glad you're having fun with your car.

Lol, don't get so mad at me for not liking your taste, I take it back, you car is beautiful, I love it, I'm going to have my car painted just like yours.
My wife does buy clothing for me, I like it. She is frugal, she likes Old Navy but also buys me expensive stuff when she finds it cheap. Never watched any of the fast and furious movies, gone in 60 seconds is more my speed. Ken Block is talented but I'm more of a Pastrana fan. Don't have DC shoes but my 4 year old daughter does, don't have a North Face jacket, I like Eastern Mountain Sports been from NY. I am an old guy, I do like original stuff but have been modifying since I was a kid, never leave anything stock. I just don't like the design of your paint job, looks terrible from my perspective. You can take it personal or as constructive criticism, it's up to you. Like I stated before, it's your car, if you like it that is all that matters. Keep in mind that posting pictures of your car will get you compliments and criticism, be gracious in any case. Thank you for rescuing a GD.

Made some upgrades to the exterior. Front lip, rear lips, roof spoiler, and a 08+ STI spoiler customized to fit on my 06 trunk.

Good work!

I saved a salvaged 2002 wrx that was hit pretty hard front and back (with my dads help) back in 05. I still have it and love it lol. You can tell yours was a hard side hit from the way that hood tweaked up, must have hit the upper fender pretty good there. Even the rocker looks pretty crunched in from what I can see past your Pa's shoulder.

I would love to see a shot directly from the side with the 08+ wing. Didnt know that was possible.

Haha, I was just making jokes man. I'm not offended at all by what people say about my car. When you build something it creates value to yourself that no one could possibly take away. I just felt like roasting him for a bit.. it's all jokes! Tacky is a strong word tho, its cleaner than most cars I see around my area, I feel pretty good about my work.

The wing took a lot of cutting, panel bonding adhesive, and re fitting but it ended up fitting pretty good!

Car looks good to me, definitely not a rattle-can paint job there, nice job not slamming it like so many kids like to do. Is the car still on the stock turbo? Pick up a used VF39-43, downpipe and a tune and gain about 80hp. A guy like you could probably figure out tuning pretty quick, or get a used Accessport and drop in a Cobb e-tune. You will never get more horsepower for less.

In all seriousness, good job saving the car. Even if it now wishes it just died. Gold wheels on white would have looked good. or gold calipers under black wheels or something. Good work, that takes skills.

Thanks man! And yeah, still running the stock Turbo. I've been thinking long and hard about a Cobb accessport, but they're kind of spendy! I've never heard anything bad about them tho so I think here soon I'll swoop one up.

Tacky is the right word. Its way overdone. Im not a huge fan of the color itself nor all the places its painted on. Id hate to see the other cars in your area. The work looks legit and you did a good job on the car itself, when you personalized it is where you went wrong.

You wouldnt get such a harsh reality if you werent so defensive to begin with. You were not joking, you legit got upset because you got a real opinion when you thought it would be more people telling you how great it is. Such is life brother. Welcome to the internet.
