    Default Should i get this? slightly bent WRX..

    hey guys i know this is a wrx but i can get it pretty cheap and just want to know what you guys reckon is involved in fixing it.

    hit a tow bar and pushed the radiator in and bent the front. the radiator looks to as hit the aircond pulleys but not the timing ones. he said it has been running but had a miss on one of the cylinders. but i havent had it running yet.

    cheers,
    dan

    its just a 1995 WRX wagon, has got a exhaust of some sort, a new ceramic clutch but i think thats a bit hard for the gearbox. might keep that for the rally car.

    Might be worth it to fix and sell but definitely not for a parts car.

    well got it tonight, started work on it and got it running. it was missing a tiny bit but im pretty sure it is just a fouled plug and will change them tomorrow and see! we nearly ended up pulling it all back straight by hand but will do it properly and put new rad supports on it!

    good buy! Radiator supports should be easy to come by, just find someone that has recently purchased a wrx half cut with a decent front end. I have one in perfect condition but too far away for it to be practical.
    Should come together again real easy.
