The Story
My GF4

So summer of 2012 my beloved GC (Likz0r) that i have had since i was 16 (had it for 8 years) started having problems with overheating, I believed it to be a headgasket as it would over heat after driving for 45 mins or so. I began looking into engines, ran into a headache there but eventually i found a great deal on a beautiful GF Wagon. The wagon was in northern washington/seattle area a so after a 14 hour driver there and back i had a new car.

My GC




Day I bought the GF



Day After


Shortly after i installed some goodies off of my GC and took off on a road trip to the beach

Rally armors, HID's, JDM corners, 2001 Crystal headlights and wrx brakes. Thing was looking good, i was happy to finally have a good looking car lol

At the beach


Beach trip was fun, but on the way home tragity struck....

15 mins from my house i hit a cow doing 50 MPH. Before you give me shit i live out in the middle of no where, where we have range areas where cattle run and graze freely. I had the stupid HID headlights which are not bright at all, and i could not see 6 black cows in the middle of the night on the middle of the road soon enough.

I aim for a small ass hole and only take damage to my passenger side. I hit the cow and the cow spun down the side of my car while defecating on my car too. The passenger side mirror swung up and hit the window covering my girlfriend in glass.





Yes this is real cow shit


I try to straiten it out the best i can




I find parts and replace them after i straitened everything out



For taking on a major front end collision it did not look bad.



De pinstriped and de badged/stickered it




Hella stoked i got my car looking good


3 weeks later on my way to work, speeding a little... i hit a deer doing 70 and locking up brake, not sure on true speed but the skidmarks are fucking long...

I was so distrot... i was heartbroken, pissed, and went into a depression... wrecking the shit out of my car twice so soon.







I buy a core support for SOA, spot weld remove the trashed one (great tool i recommend it) and weld it in.... luckily i only had to replace the hood, Grill, headlights, core support and radiator this time.

I unfortunately do not have any pictures of this as seeing in my car in this state i did not want to take pictures of it.

I rock my white gc hood for a little while why i try to recoupe my money from wrecking and repairing my car twice. It looked horrible With the white hood, and i could not find a RBP hood anywhere.

Eventually Subiwag parts out his wagon and i buy one from him, i drove up to seattle and picked up some new items for the rebuilt wagon. RBP hood, JDM Tails, and a Ver 6 front bumper.

I Installed the JDM tails and hood as soon as i got home but i wanted to paint the front bumper first before i installed it.

It was also the first snow night so it was a double win



Playing in the snow





I eventually got my JDM rails installed looks so much better, Takes away from the whole econobox mom look down.


And we are here today

Quite the story and determination! Fixing it up yourself and mending it's wounds shows that you really care.

I hope to see more updates in the future!

I need a nice camera....


Installed the wrx seats... i will say i am not super impressed. They have no bolsters, they allow you to slide around more then GC RS Seats and you have to sit straight on in them.

I will give them that they look cool and you can feel the ass of the car more. I really can feel the turns and suspension in my lower back, but in a good way.

Might get some Bug eye and see if i like them more

Not sure on the weird spots on them lol

The driver side is height adjustable, so i can adjust that. It did take a while to find my exact seating position though.
