I know this isnt a 7 build but my Locost needed a friend so i have started another big project.
I am Starting a new Project called #TurboUte
I am Converting my 02 WRX Wagon into a Ute/truck.
I know this is not a original idea Cause Mighty car Mods did it but it is just something i wanted to do.
I know there is alot of ppl who might get a lil mad about me cutting up a suby
But this car has really high miles & recently threw a rod bearing so she is currently down anyway.

Here is the First part of my video series
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtiD6s9A2YY

We starting things off by stripping her down.

LOVE IT!! :D

A build that starts with a sawzall, a pile of cut-outs, and a helper cat has my immediate respect and attention :cheers:

Carry on, and please keep us updated :wink:

Meh. It's "just a Subaru" to folks around here. If nothing else, that looks like a fun way to kill some time. :cheers:

I thought the MCM SubarUte had a lot of potential to look good with some extra tidying up. Figured there would be a few people follow their path.
Looking forward to see your results!

Cheers.

Looking forward to seeing where this goes! I really liked the MCM build, but as was said above, it was really missing a lot of much needed polish, since it was only built in a couple days.

That just cries out for a mid-engine V6.

Some of those pictures remind me not drink so much...

Have decent lighting, hold it steady, hold it level, and wait for it to focus.
