I wanted to at least get a journal going for my latest RS...I'll update and add pics later...Here is basically how the car looks as of now.
So as most of you know, I owned a 2000 RS coupe named Betty the Boobaru (Betty the BOOBaru, 2000 RBP RSTi coupe
) I had an awesome time building her... But I decided it was time to search for a house and chose to sell the car for extra money. I knew I couldn't go without an RS, so I was searching for a cheap, not so rusty car to start with. Oh, and I wanted a SEDAN this time
I found this 2000 aspen white sedan FS on here and on eBay. I threw in some bids and ended up winning the car for $2,550. I went and picked her up in MD in April...and then sold Betty in June.
The car was mostly stock when I picked it up, but it did have a coupe spoiler and JDM taillights! oh...and had blue front calipers, drilled rotors....and it was automatic
The first thing to go was the auto trans. I picked up a rusted out, motorless parts car for 800 bucks. Parted everything else out and boom, free 5spd swap
Once I had a proper transmission, I started adding things here and there...
- JDM 22b vents
- MRT highrise hood scoop
- amber corners
- JDM rainbow foglights
- euro WRX front and rear seats
- extended armrest with CF cover (from Zealous)
- custom visors, black with pink stitching from JPM coachworks
...and some other stuff that I will have to remember and add to this...
Added ISC n1 coils and threw my volks on
Repainted the front calipers black, and dipped the wheels teal!
AND! Things to do before snow
- winter tires (on stock 6 spokes)
- JDM STi v6 suspension
- ball joints
- brakes (picked up new-to-me calipers with pads and rotors, and new stainless lines and adapters. bought rebuild kits for the calipers and will be repainting them.)
- gaskets/plugs/oil change on the motor
I have been super busy with work and just driving the car, adding things here and there. More posts and pictures to come!
