History
My 05 XT 5MT was totalled and I was not going to settle for another SG, although i had a lot of parts invested into it. Always wanted a SH and found this salvaged XT for the right price...lower than what i got back from insurance.
Needed a fixer-upper/project while at the same time, with a rapidly expanding family, ...more room for car seats. #dadwagon
Currently deployed(military) so I'm doing research on the best options for this platform. Watch this space
2009 Subaru Forester (Silver)

Modifications

Drivetrain
GFB bov.
Still have the SG's motor on hand. Shooting for a 450WHP build eventually mated to a STi 6MT.
All the inspiration derived from Overland04 breathtaking XT
Interior
Stock leather. Custom Billet shift-knob on the way from CA. Cobb AP soon after unmarrying the SG.
Plans are for a red cluster from an 08 STi
Exterior
Mismatched and misaligned panels with a dented rear door. Rough, but not for long.
Waiting on the bodyshop. Will incorporate a boat-nose delete (STI front skirt) and STI grille.
Eventually save enough for the side and rear skirts unavailable in the US. Maybe do the roofrail delete last.
Audio
Stock. Will have a carry-over Pioneer AVH-X4800BS from the SG as a first major mod. Since i am an Audiophile, and appreciate bass, there're Plans for a custom dual sub setup to fill in the holes in the trunk cargo area on either side. Might experiment with fiberglass for the first time. Sacrificed a lot of room with the SG having a single sub box which i had to make detachable for whenever i had to haul bulky stuff.
