    Here we go again, as i sold my 2G, i'm starting another build thread. This one will be for my 1G.
    Plan is to keep everything as stock a possible + few upgrade to improve reliability.

    So i bought last december an all stock 1GA TSi AWD with a nice and clean interior and a good running engine.
    With, A LOT , of canadian weight reduction. (AKA a damn rusty-rotten shell).

    IMG_1690.JPG IMG_1691.JPG IMG_1692.JPG IMG_1693.JPG IMG_1694.JPG IMG_1696.JPG IMG_7666 - Copie.JPG IMG_7667 - Copie.JPG

    Then, a month ago, a found a really clean rolling shell, 1GB TSI AWD, without engine/trans and the missing interior. No rust! With only a few dent here and there.


    IMG_1179 - Copie.JPG IMG_1180 - Copie.JPG IMG_1181 - Copie.JPG IMG_1182 - Copie.JPG IMG_1183 - Copie.JPG IMG_1184 - Copie.JPG IMG_1185 - Copie.JPG IMG_1226 - Copie.JPG

    Plan is to swap everything from the 1GA to the 1GB (front+rear end, door, tailgate, wing..) . I really love the pop headling and black tail light. Sorry for the 1GB lover :p
    This will come with a full repair/repaint of the car + all of the mecanic maintenance. Maybe a rebuilt on the engine. Will see later.

    It should go like this:

    1-Parting our the 1GA
    2-Cleaning and reassembling interior/exterior parts on the 1GB (to make sure i do not forgot any parts before sending the 1GA to the scrap yard)
    3-Body job IN/OUT/UNDER/ENGINE BAY
    4-Mecanic rebuild/maintenance and final install
    5-Driving the car !

    I began 2 week ago in the parking, but now that i've freed the garage it should go quicker.

    Some update, i'm in a rush to remove everything good on the black 1GA. The car is at my father's home and he is moving in 2 week.

    Today i took off the drivetrain.

    Here is a few photos, look at this gorgeous rust/weight reduction.

    Done with the rad support and painting of the engine bay.
    I'll put as much parts back in except of the engine. Then, i'll move forward with the body job.
    + bonus shot while cleaning the dailys (too much subaru in the parking lot :idontknow:)

    Had a surprise under the right rocker molding, some rust was hiding there. Not a big deal, made a patch panel (+cut rust and weld) and voila.
    Both rear quarter panel and roof top are on primer.
    Moving on doors, front fenders and hood.

    All the interior is done + rear body part too. Front bumper/lamps/accessory will wait at the end (after the engine).
    All of the damn key cylinder was seized up. had to play to the locksmith. First try at this and everything thing went perfect. thx to a write-up on the forum.

    Now im rebuilding the suspension/direction/brake/fuel&brake lines.
    Everything will be sandblast like my previous build.

    Between the wait time for the blasting, i'll do the new brake/fuel lines.
    Already clean and repaint the underside of the car while everything is off the car.
    All new balljoint/bushing kit/tie rods are in the mail, should have this soon.

    Cant wait to put everything together !

    **Im so happy been able to find that OEM 1g radio cassette player!! :)

    Didnt plan to drop the fuel tank but thank god i did it LOL.
    Wtf is that rotting mouse nest.

    + i did my brake/fuel line, first try with nickel copper lines and this was so easy to bend. I'll never go back to steel.
    While having the fuel tank out, i did clean and paint the tank and the fuel pump hanger with new AN fitting and wiring.

    Great job man!. You're a trooper for all that you've done. I'm glad you stayed with the 1ga facia, but I'm a little biased

    What a beatiful weekend we had here in Quebec (Canada). We had snow the last couple week and now +20°C (60°F).

    Trans & t-case are both done, got the engine out for a quick wash while i was washing both dailys.

    IMG_5322.JPG IMG_5329.JPG IMG_5332.JPG

    Now time for the engine rebuild!

    Im finally in the engine rebuild.
    Block is done, head is out to the machine shop.
    By the time head come back, i'll clean the valve.

    I still dont know what to do next.... with all the piping and intercooler.
    Should i keep everything original ? or FMIC/Hard pipe + SD?
    Part of me would like the OEM setup but the stock piping is sooooo small. And i'm not a big fan of MAF setup :/

    Nothing crazy on power. Something fun to drive without risking damagin the trans.
    i'll think about it. I already got a FMIC, but the idea of building a custom big SMIC is teasing me :)

    You probably won’t need a fm then, but you have to admit, a dsm doesn’t look right without a fmic LOL

    You aren't going to damage the trans unless you're rammy with it, or doing launches. They will take a ton of power if you only do roll-ons.

    Nice work on the build! You are determined LOL. I would have made a road trip down south and grabbed a rust free shell.

    I'm facing the same intercooler dilemma. I bought my car bone stock and don't want to cut it up for an FMIC. The stock side mount is a huge bottleneck, so I want to build my own SMIC using a better core. I haven't found a deal on a TIG welder though.

    I bought last year an Everlast Tig, its a good quality chinese brand. Cheaper than Miller/Lincoln (im not welding for a living) and it as been super good for all my DIY project on my previous 2G build.
