well i originally bought this fozzy for 350 taxes in from my work (used car dealership) with a blown rod bearing and a trash filled or so i thought interior.
looked like this after a quick clean out of the "trash" in it and the engine has been pulled. i found 20 gallons of interior paint and a dewalt xrp 18 volt cordless hammer drill with 2 batts and charger buried under the garbage.


ordered a 100,000km engine from a wrecker and had it safetied and drove it for the winter. now that its spring and i found this forum i have sourced 16 inch stock forester s wheels for free, added some bridgestone potenzas, some paint to the rims, lowered it the cheap way by cutting the springs for now( i have ordered some kyb wrx wagon struts and also ordered some 3/4" impreza wagon sport springs, all for an 03 ) next is some tinted windows. a body and paint job to get rid of some surface rust that has appeared over winter. but here she was last night on a trip home from visiting grandma ( my first son is 11 months old)





any and all coments welcome


P.S since i bought this forester i dont miss my 03 impreza 2.5rs ( that i sold with the baby on the way) at all
