Today's work revolved around body issues. We removed both bumpers and got a feel for just how much work the rear quarter panels were going to be.
The other side actually isn't as bad, but both will certainly need new metal welded in. There's some minor surface rust elsewhere on the bumpers (front and rear) so that's not a huge issue. With the bumpers off, it means we can also finally repaint the front bumper too! I had originally planned on nabbing some Fog Light covers to complete the "Version 6 STi" look, but all of a sudden, they seem scarce to come by online. I may just skip that bit, as it's not crucial to have them.
I'm working on the front and back of the car at the same time, but there's much less work to do up front. As things progress, the car will eventually be completed from the front on backwards, but it'll be driveable this whole time. Trips between my garage, the shop, and other places I'm getting help from are still possible, so it's nice not to need a tow!
