It'll all have to get paint anyways when I swap all the front end body pieces/spoiler/roof vent.

previous owner of mine had cut the rear wells and had a little rust develop around the spot weld where the rear bumper mounts. After 15+ years of looking at Imprezas, I'm convinced that is the source for the common rust in the rear wells. It's a perfect catch all of road grime plus salt if you live in an area that uses such. There was about a 1/4" of fine dust built up on the foam pieces when I pulled the rear bumper cover.

I'm running 07 STI LCAs and lateral links which adds about 10mm on each corner plus 20+ 18x10.5 wheels... no choice but to go wide

Quite jealous of your trip up the dragon. I would love to make the trip as soon as my car is done. Obviously I won't be ready for the next rally ha.

Once I get this thing sorted you are more than welcome to head north and tag along for a mountain run. You can meet some of the wrxatlanta guys

That's the plan. I've met a couple guys already. The motor and trans and such went to a guy who came down and helped me pull it.

Should be a run coming up in April but a few us have been known to make a day trip on a wild hair.

2nd owner with no serious injuries just bumps and bruises. ALL of the plastic and rubber bits are sunbaked and or dry rotted. She's about as beat down as you can get and still be somewhat reliable. She'll either get a transplant or be relegated to vegetable hauler on my parents farm.

NA big plenum, long runner intake manifold showed up today. It'll go in for some porting and then forward face mounted in prep for the fog light turbo. Way too excited about this little bit of OEM part.

If I was still single, I'd have this thing done by April. But with all the other stuff I've got going on these days, I'm shooting for end of 2017 haha.

I like your intake, this is mine after weight reduction, gasket match and wrinkle coat. Good comparison to the WRX intake to the left.

That looks great. I like the black. The seller gave it a fresh coat of gray so it's staying gray. I like the flow rate and the less angle on the throttle body mounts so I won't have to **** with the hood.
