Matt and James have now finished Freddie’s Subaru to better-than-factory finnish. The majority of the work took place on the rear driver’s side wheel arch and sill as well as under the spoiler on the boot lid.

Leaving no stone unturned James has noticed corrosion into the arch and sill and has taken a ‘belt and braces’ approach to make sure this modern classic is fighting fir for many years to come. James has cut out any compromised metal and has fabricated a new driver’s side arch and part of the sill.

And here is the work in progress… We have elected to replace the rusted bumper brackets with new genuine Subaru parts.
