My ForeSTAR build thread.

Hey all. Starting another project....

The car used to be a buddies of mine. About 5 years ago after my wagon was killed. I bought an 03 Wagon to rebuild it. Since I still had all the go fast bits out of my wagon I sold and installed all the parts into this Forester. My buddy drove it around for a long time trouble free and it was very dependable. Recently he decided it was time for him to swap up to an STi. He wanted something stock and fast so I offered to buy his Forester to use as my dedicated Auto X/ Track Car.

I had been Auto Xing the Legacy for a while now and it was performing great but the ride was a bit hard, the gearing was way to low for good freeway runs and yes is was fast and relatively comfortable it wasn't really what I envisioned the car to be. So this winter the Forester is going to get the full race car treatment and parts will be coming off the Legacy so I can soften the Legacy back up so its a better hwy cruiser/ dd.

So on to the build. The Class I like to Auto X in is C1 FP an for track use I will probably start by just doing club days. Here is the current parts list that I have.

etc....

So I started the Project Yesterday by starting the tear down. Many of the original parts are going to be sold off and some of it already is. What I don't sell I will use the replace the Auto X parts coming off the Legacy.

Here is what She looked like before I started:







And 2 hours Later...








So this week I will continue to strip the car down to just a shell. Once I am done with that I am going to set it on its side and remove all the undercoating and then stitch welded the car and coat it. Then I'll put it back on its floor and working on installing the cage and wiring. I'll be working on this in tandem with 2 other projects to progress will be a little slow for a few weeks and then I will be on this for the rest of the year. Going to talk to TSS fab and get the Chassis parts done and sent so I can make it roller again after the Lego is stripped.. Stay tuned.. I

ts no Celaru but this is going to be a good one..
