I gave up on figuring out how it exactly happened. 2 bends 180 degrees apart is a huge hole!!! Rear didn't get bent.. And I don't remember smashing a hole that big.

Honestly, I think I might have done one bend driving to the show, then the second one that put me on the side of the road is when I noticed it because of the flat.

Mustang rims!!!!

Maybe Subaru parts could fix it?

Built tuff with ford stuff?

Waiting on my parts for the rear before I adjust the front end. But it will be coming down some. Stock spindles, 5" KCW adjusting beam, no shocks. Porsche brakes, Porsche to ford adapters.

Haha I remember when you went from the 15's to 17's I was like damn.....those wheels are huge. Now that I got used to seeing it all the time with the 17's, now I think to myself.....damn those are some cool 14's!

I wanna see how it looks with some fat meaty tires on the back of that thing!

I'm confused... :-#

back to the mustang rims. I cut the centers out and moved the offset/backspacing. 4 welds held the centers in, I cut the mig welds with the cut off wheel. Set it where I want it and put some tack welds on. I'm where I want to be. Less deep dish look now and also the fit!


I know what I'm doing might suck, be ugly, whatever. this is just how I'm making the rims fit. I'm not the best at it, just working on stuff and having fun. Enjoying the challenges that come with it.

I did a shit load of work to end up back with 15" Fuchs. Waiting on paint to dry on the center caps. Went with Fuchs for a million reasons, 15" for more tire side wall, Bolted on, easier for road trips.

I put the Subi in the car for road trips, now my wheels are road trip friendly.

You can't even tell it has a Subaru.

The front suspension had settled down some from that picture.
