With all the work done to improve performance and aesthetics, many might overlook the interior of their cars, but not Dunbar. BLK-Diamond went to town with custom-flocked and Alcantara wraps around everything. Takata harnesses keep driver and passenger in the two Bride Carbon Vorga II seats while a chromoly steel roll cage surrounds the occupants in case there are any mishaps on the street or track. A Rallytech carbon fiber parcel shelf, rear firewall and rear seat delete are the final touches.
But, Dunbar still had enough left in the six figures he spent on this build to squeeze in a teeth-rattling audio system with Digital Designs subs and speakers. A Sony XAV70BT DVD head unit and rear view mirror monitor can keep things pretty entertaining depending on what flick he has popped in. We'd opt for something from the Vivid Entertainment classic collection or the One Tree Hill series if you're into that type of weird stuff.
Through his countless efforts and struggles, Dunbar has constructed a car both father and son would feel proud about. It hasn't been as easy as people might think because Chris had to coordinate travel between Seattle and Los Angeles almost every other week in an effort to hit every show in 2012. The year prior wasn't as impactful as he had hoped. But, it's because a majority of the year was spent revamping the WRX. That said, this thing has taken home trophies from all the major shows such as Hot Import Nights, SPOCOM, Nisei Week Showoff and Motion. Along the way, Dunbar has made new friends and strengthened ties with his car clubs Team Sunworks and TW Competition.
Any way you look at it, this is one bad WRX. And, by bad we mean good. Really good! As many do, Dunbar credits his friends for making all this happen. And, while he doesn't plan on stopping just yet, the car might be up for sale by the time this goes to print (just in case there are any readers interested in continuing the legacy of this WRX). What lies ahead for Chris' next project? We hear he's eyeing a pearl white 2012 Nissan GT-R. To be honest, from the history of his project cars, this one could end up being very scary. Scary in a good way.
