The ignition switch has a big black connector, with some thick wires in it. Use a mulitimeter to work out which one is the "start" wire and build that into your "immobiliser" circuit.
Changing the ignition barrel itself is a bit of a pain, and the you will have different keys for the doors and ignition :-(

Also i was reading and found out that its easy to take the window down on a subaru older model...does anyone know of any place that can make a door panel thing for the top...or is there a car model that would be a good one to switch and fabricate a new door?

I made my own with a padlock hood lock, a cut off on the starter, and another cut off for the fuel pump if they got past that.
My Jeep was such a pain that they tried and went on to somebody else.
I tricked myself on this too though. It was also common to steal the trailer hitch so I drilled the thing and put in two sheet metal screws and then bondoed and painted over them. About ten years later I wanted to remove the hitch and was laying under the Jeep and wailing on the hitch with a sledge hammer when I remembered the screws. I imagine that hitch is still in there unless someone took a torch to it.

I would strongly recommend finding one a junkyard. If it's still in the donor car, you get to practice on that!
