Picked up a new project for $500 bucks. 1995 Impreza 1.8L FWD Coupe. Going to do something a little different and fun with this thing.Going to build it to revolve around the Northwest Winter since thats where i live, and its that time of year :) Got some sweet ideas in store, This is one of those cars that should catch a lot of attention.

Main Plans:
Lots of Unique features to combat NW Winter/Snowboarding
AWD Swap (just need to find a gas tank, driveshaft, and 5spd trans. Have everything else)
Brake Upgrade (havent decided which direction to go with this yet)
Fix Dents/Body Work/Fresh Paint (in progress)
2.5RS Front end/Coupe Spoiler (looking for parts)
Put a stereo in it!! (previous owner ripped EVERYThing out)
Ditch the 13" steelies (looking for 2 more 17x8 Rota torque +48 to complete my set)
WRX Motor Swap (last on the list, probably not till the end of summer '13)

Don't want to give away all the little details, gotta have some stuff for a suprise. So heres the before shots.

Holes all Welded Up. Pulled the biggest part of the dent out. I'll get the body tools out and fix that trouble spot next.

But in the end it should look better this way anyways :)
