Worked on the car a bit more yesterday, so I figured I'd update this.

Added RS side skirts. They were suprisingly easy to install.


I also did a little diy fender rolling since I was rubbing in the rear.

Hey,

How did you install the side skirts? Did yours already have holes, or did you have to drill yours?

Please PM me!

Thanks.

What made it easy was Subaru was nice enough to put the ending line of the orange peal coating on the rockers right where you need the vertical measurement for the holes. So the vertical measurement is already done for you. You just line up the side skirt and make your horizontal mark where the clips are on the skirts and drill your holes.

For the bottom I just drilled round holes and used GM bumper fasteners from the auto parts store. they are every secure and are not going anywhere.

The mail man dropped of something for me today:


I got it mostly installed tonight.





It also came with some sweet JDM news papers for packing material.

I would also like to say thanks to JWalker for the awesome template for cutting the proper sized hole in the roof.
