Samesies. Let me know if you're coming to any meets out this way.

I was trying to get to Grattan on Monday, but I don't think I'll have everything set to go, and forgot I made other plans to work on other people's cars this Saturday. MEH.

I'll definitely be around the Kzoo area more and more as time goes on so, that's not too far.

Same. I would be interested in getting a ride in both of your cars as a good basis of comparison.

When's the MI EJ20K meetup?

Anyone going to LSPR? I'll very likely have mine there! Otherwise not sure what other events are left this year.

My local Subaru network came through. $50 OBS hood in Brilliant Red. Scoop and vents are badly faded and the hood itself is pretty well scratched up. But for 50 bucks it's all one color!

Extreme rust proofing part two is complete. Here's the arsenal...


I removed the rear bumper to get access to all the surfaces where the bumper meets the body. I wanted to coat these with rust bullet because it's super tough and will prevent scratches into the metal.


Look at that beautiful virgin Impreza goodness.


I sanded the areas I wanted to paint including the lip of the fender and then masked it off.


Rust bullet automotive in the areas you won't see, and rust bullet blackshell in the areas you will.





Next comes the cavity wax. I've already done the rockers, now to seal the rear inner fenders.



Then I did the doors and hatch


Anywhere I could get the 3' nozzle i buried it and blasted away. Any hole that led into the bowls of the chassis...



I even blasted it down into the bumper holes/frame rails


I hope that does the trick!

Getting some winter wheels ready...

I had some WRX 16's laying around. I had painted them 4 times already so I had a friend sandblast them for me.


Primed...


And painted. It's a dark bronzey metallic.
