Default careercadaver’s L wagon...currently as unimpressive as it sounds

Nice! They seem to really hug you, which I’m looking forward to. My current seats in my STi have worn bolsters and I prop myself too often.

I’ve been dreading buying trunk panels as well...last quote I had was $250. I imagine the cars would be about the same. Always a gamble. The v6 grille came from the same guy.

Not even entirely sure what I need as the rear speakers are over the wheels vs in the doors. I may just paint what I have for now and deal with the grandpa tan until I can source a replacement. It’s kinda pointless as I plan to run the newer dash with the swap.

The carpet also needs dyed or replaced. I have a line on WRX carpet but it might be grey...I had black WRX carpet in my sedan years back and remember it “fit” bit wasn’t all that great.

Got the call he finished the hatch and had it back together but I was unable to coordinate with him. I believe we’re set for tomorrow afternoon!

Default careercadaver’s L wagon...who drank my molotov?

She’s home!!











Remaining pieces should be completed this week! Gotta start sourcing the mounting hardware for the wings, skirts, etc! ...and possibly a grey interior...

Thanks!! Considering trying to avoid putting her through too much of our Michigan winter by driving my STi a few more months before selling.

She’s getting your v4 brakes this weekend. She’s not plated either man. Probably be next year before I get her out, unfortunately.

Got the brakes buttoned up...took forever with the entire family fighting the flu at once.





(don’t hate me for that flawless wheel arch)

My paint guy is hoping to have the sideskirts, rear spats, front spats and wings done this weekend...





I guess I’m putting the grandpa-tan back in the car until I swap over to the 97-01 dash. Should be encouraging. Lol

Here’s a few more of the paint. I’ll post more once she’s a bit more buttoned up.

Been plugging away at her little by little and ordering pieces still needed for the conversion. It seems I’m always missing a few fasteners or a bracket for each piece. :/

Interior is mostly back in the car. Running black WRX carpet and GF8 seats made a big difference for the interior. Also installed a Pioneer 8200NEX. Feels funny to put Navigation in an older car but it’s in. Speakers are noticeably worse with more power run.

I’ll snap some pics once I have the back seat in.


Decided to lose a few pounds in the rear.



Here’s the JDM/LW Beam...



Bumper reinstalled w/ JDM Spats. Fits a lot better.





So, here’s to hoping I never get hit in the rear!

Thanks! Still need to grab the mounts for the license plate and tag lights. Lots to do still. Moving toward the sideskirts...just dreading taking a power tool to fresh paint.
