I sold my 2012 WRX STI Hatchback.
and bought this
It had lots of recent engine work (fresher 5GME swaped in and the engine bay went through, transmission went through, diff re-sealed. hasn't leaked a drop in the 1000 miles i've driven it).
I could not park it in my drive way - The STI at stock height needed to be backed in to
When I bought the cressida it had no exhaust beyond the cat and was trying to poison me - so I installed a exhaust.
I removed the exhaust for fear of some drunk bicycler coming down my hill and killing themselves - i replaced it with a removable flange attached to a harley davidson chrome
exhaust pipe from my motorcycle. (exhaust shown in next picture)
With that taken care of - I needed to make the car capable of parking in my drive way.
After removing the front springs that were installed in the rear spring perch - from god knows what vehicle.
I made some spring insulators out of a spacer cut in half
Cut a 13" 5.0" OD Nascar 400# spring to 11"
Installed AGX springs from a camaro 1982-02
Got the fender tack welded together with help from a friend
Re-installed the 15x10 195/50R15 wheels and drove it 90 minutes home (i was in sacramento)
Then i had some 295/50R15 tires installed
and after adjusting my headlights
I can back into my drive way
I'm getting some help from hotrodders in sacramento - want to build some widebody fenders out of steel.
Dreaming of new front suspension as it's blown to shit and so the ride is very unfriendly to organs.
It drives much better than it did, especially on our nasty norcal highways and the busted streets of oakland.
It's not ready to take any jumps yet.... *j/k*
Experimenting with making fiberglass on foam at home
