    Some actual decent updates. Hoping to get the Blitz powder coated within a month then source some side skirts and then place my order with ChargeSpeed. Picked up a bumper a few weeks ago do I can start working on SOMETHING.



    Picking up a replacement 4EAT this weekend. Was going to go 5 or 6 speed but knee issues from football have been plaguing me lately so I'm not trying to push it. It'll stay auto for now. Got in touch with a local powder coater who does some great work. Decided on a plan for the Blitz. Brushed Faces/Barrels.



    Other than that I've been slowly collecting parts.

    With "OBS" I was expecting a Ford Truck, what does it stand for in this case?
    I like the wheels. Awesome finish.

    Outback Sport ! Don't know if it's what anyone else calls it but that's how I always referenced it lol Thanks ! It's always an internal fight when it comes to figuring out a wheels finish, probably the only thing I struggle with when I build something.

    It's been a good week. After emailing Evasive Motorsports after a week of no updates on my lip..



    It magically showed up ! I think everyone has a manufacturer they love, mine happens to be Chargespeed and Cwest lol

    Also scooped some STi seats as well



    Definitely need to be cleaned but wasn't going to pass on them at the price they were. Side skirts SHOULD be showing up soon. Not much left as far as the exterior goes; grille, mirrors and head lights and that should just about do it for the outside.

    Not much in the realm of groundbreaking updates. Started cleaning out the inside of the Subaru and tossed the old seats. Pulling the carpet tomorrow to pressure wash it clean. Then will toss in the STi seats and continue to clean and remove anything else.

    The plan right now is basically remove things I don't want and replace some broken things from the previous owner. Starting "bare bones" and build it back up instead of jumping all over. Wedding is creeping up so I'm not trying to kill my funds lol

    Before and after of the interior



    And an updated shot


    Assembled the Blitz today and looking for a cheap set of tires to toss on so I can get an idea of how everything will flow. Hoping to put the lip and bumper on next weekend as well.

    Seats are in. I ordered some misc. stuff for the interior and an antenna delete for the outside. Little by little shes getting there. I grabbed some 205/40s for the blitz temporarily so I can get as much as I can on the car to get an idea of how everything will flow. obviously a lot has to come back off the car at some point for paint etc. I know the car inside out so it's not an issue taking it apart lol

    Drove an hour yesterday morning to pick up some dash blanks and the HVAC trim. Interior is about 75% done. Some small stuff to take care of, like finding an OEM radio. It's the little things.

    getting there. these cars are so cheap but parts are a little harder to come by now lol I have access to part numbers for everything but a lot has been discontinued. I've never been happier to work on something than I have this.

    New door handle showed up today, as did my grimmspeed antenna delete and the achilles tires. Also paint matched the roof rails.

    Having too much fun again with this thing. STi floor mats are in, gave the wiper arms a quick coat of black (it's crazy what a little paint does) and got around to finding a proper rear wiper delete/plug.

    The wipers on my RX7 were white from when the PO spraybombed the whole car. Painting them black again was somehow monumental.

    I've slowly come to enjoy the smaller, less exciting things I do to the car / any car than the larger stuff. More satisfaction.
