front lip arrived - will go on in the spring

ordered OEM color matched fog light shrouds

ordered OEM fog lights
ordered 3000k bulbs for said fog lights

OEM fog lights arrived - 1 was mint, the other smashed! So i'm waiting on the guy to refund me partially so I can replace that light.




also in search of an Impreza light switch. My Legacy fog switch doesn't work
but soon enough I will finally have OEM fog lights

Well as you can see since the start of 2016 I've been going on a bit of a shopping spree and to add to that I've recently ordered rear bumper spats, a Kartboy short shifter & bushing kit, along with a Killer B tear drop shaped shift knob as well. I also have a new green Crown Royal bag I'm going to cut into a shift boot and last but not least I ordered a pair of LaminX yellow fog light overlays.

All the fog light stuff finally arrived and here it is installed:

yeah I got one thanks though. A buddy of mine sold me one on the low out of one of his GC part cars.

LaminX film & rear bumper spats arrived!! Once I have the spats painted in the spring they will be installed. I plan on doing the fog light film this weekend though!

Short shifter should be here by Friday and I would really like to install it this weekend as well! This week went from facking terrible to facking great!

here's an example of the rear bumper spats in case anyone is curious which ones I went with btw

short shifter & bushings kit along with the shift knob arrived on time!!! Saturday was D-day!

We got the short shifter in and wrapped the fog lights. so then we tried to tackle the front & rear poly bushings. It took us 6 hours and we accomplished nothing. the rear bushing's holes are too narrow so we couldn't bolt it in no matter what we did to try and get it to budge. Then we couldn't get the front bushing bolt out because the driveshaft was in the way and we were running out of sunlight. we still ended up running out of sunlight but eventually got all the original bushings in and called it a night. I also broke a finger in the midst.


shifter & knob fully installed


wrapped fog lights day & night

So I was having second thoughts about these rear spats and decided before spending the monies to have them painted I'd might as well sell them.

I then turned around and for less purchased a set of universal splitters to be mounted to the back bumper. They just arrived today!!

Also something about having a windshield banner I enjoy so I chose to get a large scale decal from a buddy of mine in the UK from his company called "LikeHell" made up in oilslick.


I really like how the STi front bumpers have the vent on the side like my 2.5i does but theirs are black and color matched so I took it upon myself to make mine look like them as well. Little details you know


oh and these are the universal rear bumper lips I got


All parts and what not will start going on in April! I still have more to buy as well so stay tuned!

Small update! Ordered my OEM STi Limited spoiler and a pair of OEM WRX side skirt strakes on friday! Once they arrive then I will send them off for paint. following the installs will then be lowering the car and having the fenders rolled. ordering my tires (225/45/17) mounting my wheels. installing front & rear lips! I cannot wait to see it all come together!!!
