Hey everyone I wanted to start my own build thread. I've had my impreza for about 11 months and it's been a fun project. I'm located in Oregon. I bought the car from Primitive racing for $1100. It had 158k miles and it was a 1.8L with a 5 speed transmission. Also came with a rear swaybar, front skidplate, and rs seats.

I want to eventually wrx swap it and do some autox and track days, enjoy it really. I will update the post with what's been done and where I'm at now very soon.

Got lucky and scored a red hood and grille off an outback at the local pick n pull, paid 80 dollars for all of it.

More updates for the Impreza, I picked up a set of wrx wheels with new tires (ventus v2) for under $300. I stumbled upon an rs front bumper for $80 bucks so I picked that up too.

im loving the transformation so far OP. especially the red hood, i think that red white scheme so far works really well. it doesnt throw anything off visually, imo.

I was thinking the same, it definitely has the right look to it.

I know you guys like some updates so here you go. I got the trunk and wing installed you can see the color difference there but no issue since I will be repainting the car. I need to order more bolts and nuts for the wing along with rewiring the brake light on it. I happen to find some black housing headlights at the local pick n pull and ordered some amber corner lights and I'm pretty happy with the outcome.

Back with more progress I started to get rid of the tan interior and convert it to black. I'll post some pics on how everything is going. I'm planning to flock the dash too.
