Well, it's about that time finally. I'm ALMOST at the point of 'finished', but I guess we all never are. I've compiled a bunch of pictures over the past couple years of each and every modification. I'd like to post up what my LGT has been through from my first day of ownership to this very day. I'll give captions and mini-descriptions for every picture. Hope you guys enjoy! I'll keep updating with each new mod.

First good, heavy cleaning. This is a Copart car (bad move) and highly un-taken care of.

Found out the engine/turbo is blown. Got a brand new EJ255, got the heads completely refinished, new VF40, '08+ STI oil pump, KillerB pickup tube, and the other misc. necessary parts.

Dad trying to figure something out after the oil pump was installed lol. None of this was possible without him. Love you, pops!

Next began many mods down the road. Full stage 2, AVO TMIC, yada yada. Most notable upgrades - Stromung CBE, RalliTek springs on KYB Excel-G struts, 17x7.5 Sparco Assetto Gara wheels, and extra stock wingless trunk.

How she sits today:

How she really sits today (6/17/13):

Although not noticeable, the car still has various door dings, light key scratches, roof hail looking damage, and little interior abuse, but i'm working on getting the body in perfect shape eventually.

I have many more pictures, but these pictures showed what this car has gone through since day 1.

Here's an update of how the car currently sits on 18x8.5 +44 Rota Gravels and a 245/40 tire and front Brembo's. (9/25/13)

Here's the '06 SpecB door panels installed (9/25/13)

Hope you guys enjoyed!
