Kingkong8292's Blubaru
 
I figured it was time to start documenting the progress that's been made on the car since I picked it up in June with a little over 70k. I've been slowly restoring the car as well as improving it. The goal is a 300whp clean reliable daily driver.

June 2011
Picked the Subie up with a little over 70k on the odometer. The paint was pretty rough on the bumpers. The setup was a COBB TBE, AP V2 w/ stage 2,Blitz DD BOV, Tein Basic coilovers, and a Prosport boost gauge.

Ballaholic 03-17-2012 04:25 PM

sweet ride!!! wha kind of wheels are those?

2000_LegacyOutback 03-17-2012 04:45 PM

what kinda of grill is that? DIY?

TheBlubaru 03-18-2012 02:31 PM

Thanks :) The wheels are Tork Matrix 18x8 not really sure about offset and it's an AVO V2 grill.

angeltalin 03-18-2012 06:33 PM

Dang man, Idk if I like mine or yours more ! Looks good so are you in VT or FL

TheBlubaru 03-19-2012 03:05 PM

Thanks man, I am looking to switch the wheel setup soon when I get the cash. I'm in Orlando but I bought the car back in June while I was still living in the 802.

TheBlubaru 04-12-2012 12:08 PM

Torks are now for sale. I am looking to make back some of the money I just spent on the new setup.

Very nice, how bout them side shots?

What size tires you end up running?

TheBlubaru 04-15-2012 01:52 PM

I wanna get out the DSLR and get some better shots but I ended up just swapping over the old tires. I'm going to run those until they are bald and then probably move up to a 225/40.

vtbimmer 04-16-2012 03:35 PM

Looks much better without the eyelids. Lookin good.

TheBlubaru 04-20-2012 04:10 PM

I wish I had taken them off sooner:p Unfortunately the goof off I was using to get the left over residue melted the driver side headlight plastic so I need to replace that soonish.
