Here are some pictures of the cars from today!

















I have found a donorcar for the white one, a silver '92 Legacy Turbo with rusty arches etc.. Totally standard.

Arches may be rusty but how clean is that engine bay on the donor car, looks like its been well looked after.

Its got one owner for 20 years so yeah i guess he looked after it well, the interior was very good, so i have already swapped the doorcards over to the red one!

I have seen many Legacys that are much, MUCH more rusty than this one, but its still to bad to repair in my opinion, even if you replace all the rusted metal it will never be as good as a car with original metal.

The doglegs behind the plastic covers are pretty much gone, and the rear arches are just coverd with filler and then spraypainted.

Wow your car is so immaculate! B) I love it!

Agreed that the silver one is also very tidy minus the arches..

Manual window winders? I think they are rare, well the door sides/trims are, the mechanisms may be the same as the Impreza? That guy in USA that is building the insane Legacy RS Type RA replica with mostly new parts seemed to have problem to find manual winders for the Legacy.

Stunning as always! Top choice parts as well mate!

I wouldn't place the gauges there, but I suppose it's for practical reasons.

What happened to the rest of the donor car?

Thanks guys!

Well there are no other places to put the gauges on a Legacy, except for the A pillar but i HATE the look of A pillar gauges, looks like its straight from the fast and the furious!

I still have the donor car(s) stored but i dont know if i will ever build up that white one, if i do i will concentrate on making the body 100% (cage, seamwelding etc) and then put all the expensive parts from the red one into that one. But if that happen its far away into the future.

And when you do, a project thread like that is a must!

Also test fitted my Speedline Turini wheels that i have bought for my Impreza but that car wont be finished in a long time... :P

Hi Oskar, do you still have the legacy?

I've just bought a 93 legacy turbo salon in the same colour as yours and I have questions

Yours is the most sorted example I've ever seen amazing work!
