Finally got everything mounted today.
Advan RG 16x7.5 +45 (13.4 lbs per wheel)
BFG Sport Comp 2 225/50/16
Muteki SR48 Neochrome



I have to say that I hate the lug nuts... Haha. Too much yellow. I'll probably try to swap them for a set of black or blue lug nuts. But everything feels tight, tires are grippy, and I am registered to race at Miller in a couple of weeks.
I also have a borrowed camera this week, so I might get out and take some pictures of both my car and my wife's FXT.

Nice progress, a lot of updates in such a short amount of time.

Took some pics and have been working on some edits for the last couple of days. Definitely my own amateur photography. This one happened literally minutes before a small accident with our forester... It's going in for a facelift.

I sold the lug nuts too. Just rocking some stock ones for now.

I always envy those who take on body work themselves. You had welding experience but did you have body work experience? i think the rear quarters and clearing etc came out great!

I had no body work experience. I have done a few projects similar to it, like making a fiberglass molded subwoofer box that I used lots of bondo to finish, and I've used the paint gun on a few projects. But honestly, it really doesn't look as good as a professional. If you really are picky, I would recommend paying the price to have it done. I am not super picky and really just wanted the experience. I like doing my own work, even if it might not be perfect. Someday when I have more money available, I'll probably have the whole car resprayed, but that will be when it gets a whole wide body kit and I have another daily.

Have spent too much time on my forester lately, so no big updates, but I did have a photo shoot done with both of my cars. Even a bonus family pic too.

Awesome family photo! I'm actually jealous lol.
You should try out the yellow chameleon chrome tint for the Forester! It'll blend nicely with the BBS golds.

I have that tint on the fog lights. Just a bad angle. Pretty impressed with it even comparing it right next to the JDM lights on my RS.

Made another radiator shroud with some leftover aluminum from another project. An easy hour project in the garage with a cut off wheel, drill, and some files. And then some 400 grit sand paper for a brushed look. This one won't rust on me like the steel one would.
