t's that time again to provide an update on the progress of the Legacy build. Well, to be honest, not much has changed physically. However, behind the scenes, my bank account has taken a serious hit as I've been on a shopping spree for almost every performance aftermarket part imaginable, straight from the motherland of Japan. So, what exactly have I accumulated over the past 3-4 months, you may wonder?


Let me give you the highlights. I managed to get my hands on a set of genuine 3-piece Work wheels, Impreza WRX STI brakes, a plethora of Zerosports engine goodies, GTB front and rear bumpers, as well as some nearly new face-lifted/GT-B interior pieces. And that's just scratching the surface. I also invested in Cusco anti-roll bars, a Syms front strut bar, and the list goes on. It seems like my quest for the perfect parts is never-ending, as I still need to get a Koyorad Radiator, a new OEM AC condenser, Cusco rear camber pillow ball mounts, and a new driver's door and wing. So, the hunt for these elusive items continues...


Now, let's talk about the adventure of searching for these parts. While most of them were sourced from Japan, I was able to find many of the larger items right here in the UK. I spend a good hour or two each week scouring the internet for these treasures. It truly demonstrates the immense effort and dedication that I'm putting into this build. You would think that being a Japanese car, everything imaginable would be readily available on the infamous Yahoo Auctions. However, due to its "classic" status as a 26-year-old car, it's not as easy as one might think.


But that won't deter me. I will continue the search until I finally lay my hands on those elusive window switches that have been on my wishlist for a staggering 14 months. If and when I find them, they might just deserve a spot in a museum, considering the effort it took to locate them. But hey, that's the price we pay for authenticity and completing the GT-B wood effect interior.


Well, I better get back to the task of emptying my wallet just a little bit more. After all, it's all part of the passion and dedication that comes with building the perfect Legacy. Stay tuned for more updates as this exciting journey continues.
