I've been real busy with Daddy duties again but the car is 95% done. Here are a few non great pics of the car.

Got the car re-assembled and back to the house, I have the roof trim and trunk moldings left to put on. Want to paint the inner trunk portion of the body before thats done but its going to be soon. The new bumper looks great with the fogs in there. Got HIDs installed as well but the new housings didnt show up till today while I was at work.

The body turned out great with a couple minor problems but nothin I cant fix easily with a bit of time. underneath the window trim where it meets the car pulled away the paint with the tape but some minor detailed painting can help that.


and the other side with the new door.



it closes great and looks like new. Its hard to see the glimmer on the paint but its there in bright light.

thats all I got for now. Some more pics later. Thanks for all the comments Boys!

I've got a few issues with the car I'll be asking for help with on other areas of the forum so please take a read and help a guy out.

and finally the finished product

Theres no roof trim on yet but thats what I have left to do. I got the new headlight housings on and the HIDs installed.

This project was alot of work but alot of fun it was very worth it for the price I paid for the car $400 for the car, $750 for the door, $500 for paint and supplies, Lights, a new Deck, emblems, $320 for the bumper and $320 for the windshield. I think its a pretty nice car now. Its no brand new Dodge Challenger but its the only 99 Impreza I've ever seen in my neck of the woods. Big bounus there, and its paid for!

I love the look of the RS and the new bumper, the paint turned out real good so on to the mechanical issues now that I'm satisfied to give this car a second chance at life. I know this thing was gonna make a trip to the junkyard if I didnt rescue it. Now I can get it relaible and drive it back and forth to BC looks like Its gonna be a great winter car

A couple before and after shots
