Thank you, Teddy! yeah I will definitely swap the car, most likely a simple 205 swap. Nothing fancy as I am budgeting the cash for other things. Also, I won't be swapping it right away, at the earliest it will be spring or summer.

I mean unfortunately, it won't be anywhere near Betty. I'm not planning on repainting this car or fixing any body rust. The swap also won't be an STi, so.... sorry

I am resisting because I'm actually selling it to the guy who bought Betty! the alum hood will be going on the car it was bought for


In other news, the calipers are almost fully prepped for paint and I got my snow tires mounted on my six spokes today. Here comes winter mode!

It's good to see you start a new journal for the Boobaru 2/Betty White? Haha

Congrats on the house! It takes ALOT of patience and planning and it can get pretty tough to build a car when you have a house and life stuffs going on! Unless you have a good paying job or a loaded partner to help offset it. I'm looking forward to se how this one progresses!

haha Betty white!! That is awesome.

And thanks! I haven't purchased the house yet, still shopping. I have an okay paying job and no partner so its going to be a constant work in progress.

This car has a separate budget put aside for fun stuffs

Spent all weekend working on the car, got the starter, jdm STi suspension and winter tires put on. Got the LH balljoint done....and in trying to take the RH side upper bolt out we could tell it was going to snap, so I said nevermind for now. What do you guys think...try to find a used knuckle to replace the whole setup? Or spend forever drilling out a broken bolt
