    Default The Swaggin' Wagon That isn't Low Yet

    Hey everybody! As some of you guys know i sold my Stanced Dodge Charger and upgraded to something a little more JDM... I bought a Midnight Black Pearl (Looks almost Navy Blue) 5-Speed 2002 Subaru WRX Wagon with 109,000 miles on it a few days ago. This build will probably be slow because as of now i'm 16, and don't have a job yet so yeah. It'll be low soon enough I intend to not cheap out on anything in this build. I want to do it right.

    Anyways,

    Here's a picture that was taken the night i brought it home (Last Week)


    And here's some i took earlier today while getting gas (pls forgive they're awful iphone pics)




    The first thing i bought for it is a Stainless Steel Lathe Werks custom made shift knob which hasn't shown up yet. I can already tell from reviews though that it's gonna be a quality product.

    dude i actually should. It'll probably be static though until i get enough cash for bags. I'll probably start accumulating parts over time.

    and no pls forgive

    hehe soon.


    Alrighty guys so i was doing some poking around and it looks like my car's exhaust actually isn't stock. It looks stock but i saw a faded company mark on the muffler and it turns out this car has an MRT Performance Exhaust system on it. (Part Number SUWE031TB) And straight from the manufacturer in Australia it's $900. I'm feeling pretty good about this right now

    Here's a picture of the tip.

    Shame this generation didn't have the hill hold feature, 'cause that shit is rad. Loved it on the couple of L-series I had.

    EDIT: Also, el pic-o no work-o.

    Then find out that your clutch has a big ol' burnt spot on it as the cabin fills up with gross clutch smoke. And then the shitbox AE86 you're driving starts slowly rolling backwards down Dravus St.

    Not that I know anything about that.

    Alright so i went through my entire interior (Except for the Hatch Area) and cleaned and addressed whatever needed addressing.

    First is a pic of my workspace.... it was pretty nice but i was still really hot the entire time


    The first thing i found was the "Rats Nest".... turns out the previous owner was running a hugeeee stereo system in this rex.



    I ended up zip tying it all together and stuffing it under the carpet... i may end up using some of the wire for a more moderate setup later on.


    My drivers seat had the infamous bracket rust, so i wire brushed all the rust off, primed it then painted it. Also the bar down there had a ton of surface rust so i just decided to wrap it in carbon fiber because i was too lazy to scrub it off and paint it.



    I finished after about 3 hours or so of hand scrubbing dog hair and general nastiness from the carpets and the seats. Somehow they managed to get dog hair behind the foot pedals.... well i hope it was dog hair...


    Also during the process i dropped the seat on my finger and just wrecked my nail...




    Also here's an engine bay pic.. just cuz. Needs a lot of cleaning.
