  • 1999 Subaru Forester GT (pic heavy)

    Hey guys. Just some photos of my Fozzy which is now my project car.
    Bought it nov 2015 as my new daily and in the past month have decided to pull it off the road and rego another car.
    Here's a photo from when I bought it.

    Picked up some GD RX Impreza suspension and a set of 2004ish WRX wheels. Fitted a slightly bigger tyre to the wheels (215/55r17) to suit the foz guards.

    And this is the engine bay now after a general tidy and paint.

    Also went out for a cruise one night with mates then this happened.

    Got defected for 15% window tint, bov and electronic boost controller.

    It is now off the road due to a rooted flywheel. Couldn't be bothered replacing just that so pulled it off the road so I can pull the whole motor out and do flywheel, clutch, rear main, injectors, timing belt kit, VRS kit etc. etc.

        Probably a while yet. About to pull the motor out. Will be painting the engine bay while it's out. Will be painting the roof as well as it's starting to fade. And will be doing a few mods here and there.

          Scored some Tein Street Basis coilovers used but never been driven on for a great price off a mate.
          Out with the old

          20507367_1747848638575988_1366833277456934107_o.jpgSits sweet now.

          Painted up the 22MM adjustable Whiteline sway bar I got from the wreckers.

            Engine bay is all stripped. Just gotta finish prepping and then I'll lay down some paint next week!

                    It is a ford engine blue mate. It's not normally a glossy colour but I did 6 coats of clear.

                        Picked up some wheels cheap off a mate so I can move it around.

                        Painted them white. And rolled it out for a wash!

                        The blue looks amazing in the sun light!
                        And starting to put the front end back together.

                            Are the police really that ****ing not busy that they bother your for blow off valves and boost controllers. In the U.S. Tint and muffs depending on the state. Here.... Well if they knew what they were looking at... They dont give a SH** Open header and blackout until inspection time is ok with them.

                              That's the normal shit we have to deal with here. A mate even got done for his rear bumper being loose and a mud flap hanging off. Cops here are way to strict.
