2000 Subaru Impreza RS shell caged heavy body damage
2000 Subaru Impreza RS 2dr shell caged with heavy body damage to the rear, right quarter and front.
Cage is intact.
Needs to be re-shelled
Car was built in 2013 by RKTMotors, who currently store the car. http://www.rktmotors.com
Cage is CDS steel FIA Homologation using Custom Cages kit (only weight 130lb). Shell was partially seam welded.
It costed $5500 to build this shell.
Car companied as Open Light class from 2013 -2015. In a full rally trim with stock EJ251, 5 speed drivetrain it only weights 2560Lb !!!
RKT Motors - Greg - thinks that car can be repaired and rallied by some DIY mechanic, which is a massive save on a labor cost. For me it's not cost effective to pay them for the labor. Also I can't find any GC shells that are not rusty.
1. Restore a shell- fix a trunk and a floor, right quarter and left front. Doable but time consuming, but perfect for DIY bodyman who wants to get into rally and doesnt want to build a cage from scratch.
2. Transplant this cage into a new GC 2dr body. People do that too.
