Starting to pull some parts off the car I won't be using with my future plans.

once those are sold I can start accruing parts for the "resurrection".

Two weeks ago I emailed VRWheels about a set of wheels they had on their site. Reasonable price but the selling point was they were 5x100 and a fantastic size. A few days go by and they finally got back to me, the wheels had already been sold they just didn't update the site.

bummer. Wasn't overly concerned since I still have the 16" BBS and they look really great on the wagon, no love loss.

However, in typical Kyle fashion I kept browsing around. Two days ago I was browsing the Facebook group "5x100 Classifieds" and damn near fell out of my chair.

Another set of wheels had popped up, same sizing as the one on VRWheels I was looking at. Offsets were different but they were 17x8 +29/+35. PERFECT. Absolute best part they were 2 miles away from my work. A few messages later and I picked these up yesterday.



Blitz 01's. Super stoked on these. They need to be refinished which will be easy since they're already apart. Not going to go nuts just keep it simple. Everything is slowly coming together.

Nice pick. Those will look badass. Any idea on what color you'll go?

Probably just something simple, not too crazy or elaborate.

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. Pick up a bumper from a member on here who was somewhat local.



Looking around for a used trans currently to swap in. 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.

Picking up another trans this weekend to replace the one that's shot currently. Also placed my first order of many with ChargeSpeed. Slowly but surely I'll bring this thing back to life.

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
