    after selling my last skid car a good few months ago due to buying my first house iv finally saved up enough to treat myself :luvlove: to an na wagon

    Subaru wagon rb25det with Nissan front suspension steering setup,
    I don't no if its going to work all I have is hopes and dreams and very little money so this isn't going to be a big money project all the fabrication will be done by me, other than the propshaft

    picked up some parts

    s14 front subframe
    s14 steering rack- poly bushed
    s14 japspeed track rods and ends
    s14 lower arms
    s14 knuckles

    wont be able to fab the front subframe until I can afford the engine setup

    so next on the list is to start on tubbing the front arches as the arches are very small being 4wd with smaller lock, angle grinder time

    good stuff mate

    arches are all cut out ready and the metal is cut and bent how it needs to be, so hopefully the weather holds out this weekend so I can get the mig out and weld them in place

    Hey Bud, this is looking sweet already. :alschaser

    Have you seen the Impreza Classic that Jap Performance Parts have made? Check out their RB25DET drifter. It should help give you some inspiration for your project...

    Haven't seen anything like this wagon before and can't wait to see it progress. Nice one mate :cool::cool::cool:

    so front arches are done, still have the upper and lower gussets to make, but ther welded in, seam sealed and coated in red oxide to keep them nice, arches were made from a 2mm sheet of steel with no fancy tools

    didn't manage to get any in-between pics unfortunately as just wanted to crack on wile the weather was nice for once, roll on the clocks going forward so I can get some light in the evenings

    The 1st photo reminds me a bit of a grown up Pulsar... I don't normally like the wagons but it's changed my opinion.

    Had any more updates yet bud?

    What are you gonna use it for & got any ideas for final colour scheme? :confused::confused:

    also considering going sr as the rbs14 I built allways felt front end heavy and not to nimble, so im on the fence at the moment
