Overall that thing looks to be in great shape! A little bit of rust repair in some places, looks pretty solid really tho. And it looks real straight too. Looking forward to seeing what you will produce out of this!

That's what I was thinking when I bought it. It just has a couple of small patches of rust. Not bad at all for a 35 year old subaru.

I just got a very nice NOS black Subaru steering wheel from Danny today. I'm going to work my butt off this summer to get this to the WCSS this year.

Hey Pooparu, that rust usually comes from a leaking rear window seal. The water leaks down and is then soaked up by the rear seat cushion/foam. Because the foam is relatively deep the water never dries out and rust starts it's usual process of attacking metal...

Does not look too bad on your coupe and I am surprised by the state to the front cowl! This is the usual rust area...
