Wel,here i am after some 15 hours of work.And a wheel donor AUTOart Corolla for $25.00 off of Ebay.
Probably about 30 more hours to go,at least.Hope it will be worth it.
hope my pic isnt too big :wink
thanks guys for encouragement!!!!!!!!!!I will keep all posted,too.And yes its the base Impreza STI,by Autoart.I cant believe how much difference there is between the 94-96, and the 1997-up front ends and hood/bonnet/!!!!!!!!!Also i have to grind away all spoilers and rear valences.New mirrors,new rear wing,left hand dashboard,roof vents,rally interior,rollcage,new exhaust and some tinkering under the bonet too.Will be a lot of fun,and should look ok once airbrushed!
I am absolutely beside myself with anticipation for this mod!!!!
I am definitely subscribing to this thread!
Please keep us posted with pics and progress.
BTW, any higher resolution pics? Obviously not to attach here, but maybe a link to a Photobucket or Imageshack album?
Be sure to use the sharpest posslble drill bit when you redrill the holes for the 5 stud.... If you have used a putty to fill the holes the putty might crack or chip off.... make a small indent where you want to drill as well so that the drill has a starting point
yes.Both beig Autoarts,the rims mount the same way.You have to pull off the wheels,making sure you dont break off the stems that they mount on.I managed 3 out of 4,glued back the broken one.The original WRX STI body donor cars wheels were all destroyed almost.They were all glued to little sleeves on hubs,and didint budge.I`ll have more progress report soon,
