Car Show Entry
My Subies name is Liz and she is a 2006 Subaru Limited WRX Wagon. She is my daily driver. I bought a 2007 Subaru STI that was wrecked. I decided to make the Subaru STI wagon that Subaru should have imported.
I swapped everything over from the STI including the full harness (which was a pain because not only did I have to strip the interior but I had to depin and repin the wagon body harness into the STI harness). I even kept the OEM intercooler sprayer. Obviously I retained the nice STI dash pieces as well, but I did not use the blue interior as I think the black limited interior looked cleaner. I even swapped the fuel tank. The only STI parts I did not use was the seats, carpet, door cards, and obviously the wing
I haven't finished the swap, but it will be done in time. I go in for a tune at Moore Automotive on the 10th of September. As of September 1st, the only things left is put engine together, body work, and wrap. As soon as I get the wrap started and engine put in, I'll post more pictures.
This is my baby, and I have a lot done to her. All of the work has been done by me and my girlfriend Regan (she has a 2022 Subaru Legacy Limited XT!!!) Liz will be wrapped in Teckwrap Gunsmoke Grey with yellow accents (Brembos and intake manifold powder coated yellow among other things). There are a lot of little things that make this a one of a kind build. IE, suspension parts are POR15'd, harness is wrapped in Tessa tape, etc.
Other notable things I have done: provo mirrors, JDM auto folding mirrors (that was a pain to get to function correctly with key fob) 2012 STI steering wheel with all buttons functioning that make her 1 of a kind.
I plan on having a poster and everything showing the process of rebuild if I am accepted to display with the car. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into this build. Maybe not the most power, but she is a daily driver. If you want to see more, you can check out my Instagram @stoic.gearhead
