What's been up everyone? It's been quite a while since I've been lurking around SL-i. Site looks good, and big!!!

Anyways, I got done rebuilding my new GC recently. Some of you may have seen it on other sites, but I figured I'd post it over here as well for some of the SLi OG's out there :cool:

I'll just throw a few pictures out there, if you want more information ask me, or I have a photo/written walkthrough of the whole build here ---> http://www.rs25.com/forums/f145/t107451-devil-details-gc-goodness-inside.html

Trust me, it's worth it. There are pictures from the entire build.

The bedliner is on the entire bottom of the floor pans, wheel wells up to the strut tops, tow hooks and that area, inside the trunk and trunk panels, door sill trims, front/rear bumper accents, grille, and rain gutter/window trim. I actually ran the bedliner up to the dropoff under the rear seat so I can pop it out and take the dog were I to HAVE to put him in my car lol.

I used flocking on the dash, A-pillars, center console, and other assorted trim. I even got the seatbelt sliders. Blue is microsuede I tracked down off good old NASIOC here. Door panels were dyed.

Color is a khaki beige with a matte clear.

Mods list:

-- 1995 Impreza L 2.2l AWD 5 speed unibody
-- Khaki Beige paint, Matte clear
-- 3M undercoat top to bottom
-- Bedlined wheelwells, trunk insides, and bottom floorpans

-- Plasti-dipped silver center console pieces
-- Blue suede headliner
-- RS door panels, dyed black and blue suede inserts

Remaining Money to be thrown at it:

Dude that is UNREAL. Props to you for a sweet looking car!

I know what you need though - a Beatrush Aluminum Bulkhead (GC) $250 OBO SHIPPED
Beatrush/Laille aluminum bulkhead for the GC. This part attaches to the spot behind the rear seat or in place of the rear seat, using the included hardware. It adds some rigidity to the rear (and possibly a bit of bling). The hardware, a Beatrush Laille sticker, and instructions are included.

Car looks great. Props on a sweet build. Didn't this thing used to be a panda a few years ago, or am I thinking of something else? :smt017

Yep, it was a Panda in a previous life. The white car was hit and totalled in March 08'.

I used the drivetrain and dash from the first swap, and used the 95'L chassis to rebuild it all on to. This time, I got to do everything the way I wanted from the ground up, hence the bedliner and flat paint.
