Not really I got it from KT Green a main dealer 14 years ago now.

Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
It’s been a slow burner over the last 14 years of ownership things have changed n been upgraded throughout this time.

Are there any unique mods on your car? Hyper-rare parts, custom made parts…
I wouldn’t say I’ve any unique mods as such but throughout the build I’ve tried to be different n tried n stand out from the stereotypical modded Subaru with things like the Subaru lip spoiler n RCM reverse scoop to name a few.

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left?
It’s very nearly where I want now as any modifier knows builds are never completely finished 🤣 so I’d like some new seats n a harness bar to change the interior up a bit.

What is the biggest problem you ran into on your build?
I’ve been lucky in that respect as I’ve not really hit any major issues.

If you had to do it again, would you build the same car?
I wouldn’t want to do it again cos I’m super proud of what I’ve achieved and I would never sell it.

Are you apart of a club or crew with your car?
I’m admin on West Yorkshire Subaru Owners Club and have met some really close friends now through meeting people through the car but this hasn’t influenced anything.

What is your favorite part on your car?
This is a tough question…..there’s so many but if I had to say a few it would be the Damd steering wheel, Spec C roof vent or the Defi gauges.

What’s the best memory you had in your car?
Winning 1st places is always amazing but probably the best moment was winning 1st at Scoobfest in the Isle of Wight with hundreds of Subarus there.
