with a hit that hard, you might wanna make sure that any other piece of the frame is bent/broken/cracked. if it is, the car might as well go in the dumpster

Yeah it was hit hard. but everything else is mint mint. the car drives perfectly, there was alil floor damage wich got pulled, awd and diff its fine. i got all the parts for cheap from a guy who was parting out his sti(no engine) so all parts were basicaly new.
i had to change the rear renforcement, everythings pulled back now, just strechin it, im working with my friend and we are popin eveything out and try to use less bondo. we have time so we can do it. and honestly after popin everything theres not that much bondo to use... bumper cvers everything only bitch will be the right quarter panel that ill spend a ton of time tyin to make it look good. then ill take it for paint...
here in philly Pa. wrx with those miles go for 7000$-8000$ with few mods but from young guys that raced the shit out of it ill be gettin mine (with a nice 06 ass) for 4500$ tops. im actualy gona spend less that what i thought. tnx to the cheap parts i found. but im still deciding if i should leave the wrx wing, or put the sti huge one. i may just use the wrx stock one till i find some nice rims. then ill see... i have both.

that's hilarious. It really is a huge difference from the before and now. Good luck with it all. Also it might be better if you take the wing off to get the trunk painted.

I'm sure you probably already know, but there are two tiny holes under the oval Subaru emblem on the back of the trunk lid, so don't forget to fill those in while you're also filling the extra holes in the top of the trunk lid that were used to mount the old STi wing. Looks good though, I'm impressed with your progress so far.

yeah from what it was to now its like a diff car lol theres a few thing people wont notice but i do ...
i had a few wrx rear pics when i was doing it to compare and as you see here theres a few gaps that hell no i cant make it exactly like factory but oh well its not huge!
the side door had few dents and like a said im working on it one more day... idk when i have not time now..
the trunk holes yeah im covering them all, i had to put the wing to see how it looked haha and for now the holes are covered with tape from inside hehe. the only thing im hating are the rims.... sorry for the guys that love the stock 2002 rims. i hate them! but moneys thight so ill have to wait a lil.

I'm sure you'll get asked all the time what year it is if you go to meets or car shows. I bet some people will ask if you have an 06 with a bugeye front end swap or an 02/03 with an 06 tail conversion. Only the true enthusiasts will be able to pick out the small details and figure out the truth. And for what it's worth, until you pointed out those gaps, I didn't notice them.
