Recreating a Legend – Subaru Impreza 22B

When it comes to 90’s rally cars, there are few that evoke cherished memories quite like the Subaru Impreza 22b. Not only was it just one great looking machine, but it was driven to many a victory by rally legend Colin McRae. We were tapped to make one for the street, so we jumped at the opportunity! Like many of the builds here at Cyrious Garageworks, there’s a bit more to it than just bolting up a body kit and sending it out the door. Let’s have a closer look!

Even in stock format, the 2.5 RS is a great looking car. It does lack the aggressive look of a wide body though. Let’s get this kit out of the box and see how it all lines up!

With the kit test fitted, we’ve got a bit of a better idea of what we’ll need to do to make it look good. The areas outlined in black marker are the “trouble areas” that will need extra attention. This kit sadly was fairly rough around the edges, which meant lots of extra hours would be put into making everything line up correctly, as well as look smooth when it’s all done. Not only that, but there’s also some metal work to do with this car before we even start with the body kit. This one isn’t getting the full restoration treatment, but there’s still lots to fix!
