    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).

    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.

    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.
