    What's up guys!I made a little video the other day talking about and showing off the car... would appreciate if you guys would watch it and leave some feedback.. trying to judge if I should do a build series on there as I finish the car or if it will just take too much time to film while working. Lmk what you guys think! Thank you!And sorry for the screen being cropped I will fix that on the next vid! https://youtu.be/L8g7K18mnY0

    I bought the car January 18th 2017.. a lot of time was spent just fixing rust in the bed and tailgate area. I dont work on it every day either.. there have been month spans where I haven't touched it honestly.

    I'm sure a 2.2 or 2.5 non turbo would move a brat shell pretty good but personally I just wanted to do this build how I'm doing it.. I'm doing it for myself and just knowing I'm one of very few to do the swap to this extent.. all depends on your personal goals and preference.

    thanks brotha! I didn't break the rear window tho? I need to get working on her more but it's hard when I have other projects for other people going on that pay the bills ya know.

    What he said.. if you're just concerned about 5 lug and better suspension components you are better off sourcing XT6 parts.. I don't see the point in doing all the work just to have the suspension components.. like numbchux said.. it seems like a waste of time honestly. not trying to discourage you but just giving you food for thought.. the crossmember is not going to be close. I can almost guarantee that. I was hoping for the same but it wasn't even close. Gas tank is a whole nother ball game.. you should have some sort of fabrications skills before taking this on... also i would recommend investing in a plasma cutter if you really decide to go on with the project.

    I'm still using the brat front crossmember.. if you're not concerned with power steering I would keep the brat x member.. much easier. as for rear.. it's quite the task. personally I cut the frame rails from the wrx.. I bolted the crossmember to them.. then I used a screw jack to hold it up while I took measurements and got it centered. I had to add a 3" dropdown spacer so the wrx suspension would be sitting at the correct angles. I then tacked it place and started working on the trailing arm mounts. the entire rear end basically has to be refabbed. I know all about being broke and doing things on a budget... hence why I'm not paying someone to do this build... I would love to help but I can't afford to do 40+ hrs of fab work for free.. I got way too much stuff that I need to do myself. I'll always be here to answer any questions you might have tho.

    What are you looking to get done to it? I don't have the room to do 2 of these at once but maybe once I'm done. it's not any easy or quick job at all. insane amount of fabrication job. It won't be cheap.
