It'll all be on the website I should have done in the next couple days.
Awesome. Looking forward to seeing those.

Whoever buys it is going to get a crazy deal.
Is it currently for sale? Very doubtful I could afford this anytime soon, but I am very curious what the asking price would be. This is amazing.

Yes, it is for sale.
It isn't "officially" on the market yet. Just so much going on with the holiday weekend and work and other projects I haven't advertised it yet. But it is for sale.
Will go up on "Bring A Trailer" and some other sites.

As far as price, funny you mentioned that. I can honestly tell you, I have no clue what it's worth.
I know how much a regular low mile rust free perfect LL Bean would be worth, maybe in that $8K to $10K range, depending on the buyer.
But this car, no idea. We're actually getting it appraised Wednesday. There's no way to ever recoup the money put into it, that's not why this was built.
The buyer will have to know they are going to over pay for a regular Outback to have a chance to own a one of a kind car that nobody in the world has.
What is that worth? Not sure yet.

If anyone is interested PM me and throw a fair offer out.

That is a very beautiful car! I have almost the same interior (without all of the restoration) and I was wondering, is that an Eyesight panel you have installed in your dash?

I'll be honest, that color looks near enough to stock paint to me that to me it feels like a waste of effort to do such a thorough job painting it! But I do think the seats and door cards especially look great. Roof rack also is a little too subtle a custom job, though a close look shows it off better. Very nice work with winches and lights, and overall a very, very clean and well-integrated job!

Also, the wheels it started out with in the photo album are actually one of the few non-stock wheels I've ever seen that I think actually look GOOD on that car (usually I care about as much about custom wheels as what color your window stickers are). What are they from? Is it from some late-model OB?

I sometimes feel I need to apologize for being far more verbose than is necessary in a lot of situations, especially on the internet - I've probably already done it plenty on this foru-
shucks, I'm doing it again, aren't I?

I'd been wondering if a winch could be mounted like that behind the bumper. The whole car is awesome, but that trick with the winch is the best.

Your comment about the color is exactly why we did it like that! It looks like it could be stock, that was the plan. I didn't want it to look aftermarket but instead have it look like it came that way from Subaru.
The key was to make sure everything was a step down from over the top, including the rack. Since it is a Subaru, I think it's important not to go WAY overkill and turn it into a "bro mobile".
Thanks for all your kind words, this thing gets thumbs up all over the place!
