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!

it really is super straight given the year and the fact that it is a subaru. This will be my greatest creation yet. :brow:

Looks super solid, much better than the wagon I just finished welding back together.... I can't wait to see some progress on this one!

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.

I got some more work finished on the coupe yesterday. I also found a surprise under the rear seats.

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...
