Pulling the engine



That wasn't very hard



Finally the wrx is stripped, time to pull it out of the garage and pull in the brighton



Anyone want a wrx shell for free?

Pull the pedal box! You'll like them more than the stock brighton ones!

Im sorry to see your WRX is wrecked, but in the same sentence, i think you're really lucky that you got the brighton to swap the rest of whats left of the WRX into your brighton! It looks like its gonna turn out to be an awesome build.

Yeah I pulled the pedal box, guess I wasn't done in that picture yet. The Brighton is going to be a mix of my daily driver and my XP autocross car. Everyone in xp in my area is fwd so I want to mix it up. Wiring is as much of a mess as everyone says. Not looking forward to stripping down the harness of unnecessary weight.
