Some sheet metal from the looks of it. Probably nothing else.

Definately not what I would start with and not where I would end things if I was going to do up a forester.

Not to be rude but your brother is being pretty pigheaded. Being a hardcore jeep guy he can tell its got a motor and axels that are no joke. Even jeep guys shold be atle to appreciate that.

Ya he might be pig headed but its all in ones opinion. For 55K i can imagine something really amazing that doesnt have sheet metal work that looks kinda rinky dinky. Anyways posted it up more for you guys's enjoyment than anything.

I'm sure someone out there will buy it. I don't see the point, but to each is own. Interesting to say the least.
