Front one is an exit, the rear an inlet :)

I've been pondering the old Impreza type scoop, but don't want to look like a Corsa driver...

well i have started on the task of digging out the rust
and the body kit had lots to reveal.
both rear arches need some seriouse tlc
bottom of both doors need welding
the rear bumper is rotten to the bone
