2018 Waxstock prep / journey.

OK so a month ago I bought myself a Subaru Impreza STI Hawkeye project as all I see is them getting broken and sold as bits.

Apart from that ive always wanted one.

I plan to bring it back to life and try and get it at Waxstock in 2018.

Please follow my journey and help me get it there.

I doubt that it was running a genuine 420BHP with a TMIC.
It would probably have cooked itself.
