fun stuff, looking forward to see how this goes,Ive always said Subarus come with extra parts,the sawzall and cutoff wheel are my favorite tools, I like modifying cars, will this be open or have a closed body?, like will you loose more weight with the doors?

It will be open for the most part. Im going to have a button on rag top made for the roof for when the weather is bad and the doors will come on and off with the weather as well.

While your at it cut out the lower radiator support and replace it with a piece of steel box tubing.If you do it right you can make that part stronger while also improving ground clearance.Tow hooks/loops will probably have to be relocated to a strong bumper to get the most gain.

I've been tempted to get into a project like that with one of my loyales.  I like the idea of having the open back, almost like a Brat but with a vinyl snap on cover to keep the mud out.
