I had a set of those on my shelf for about a year and a half before I finally convinced someone to give me $20 for them. I suggest tannerite.

I had to google what that was. I now know that's the right choice. Sadly it isn't available in Australia due to our gun and explosive laws. So I'll have to think of something else.

Thanks Brian. In future plans for the wagon are roof racks/ basket and maybe some rectangular fog lights. No engine swaps atm because I'd like to see how far the ej20e will get me. So far at 323,000 it still has no leaks and doesn't burn oil at all. Its also more than fast enough to get my into trouble.

I forgot to add yesterday I managed to pick up the remaining pieces for Peters (brother) forester. OEM fog lights and a cargo cover for the back. Just waiting for it to stop pouring down with rain so we can install them.

I also have a small projects to show. I picked up a takara 22b that I'm going to get my spare key from the wagon and put the key through the grill.



Hope this has been of some interest

Luke

Today just a quick update. I have removed about 300 grams of silicon from the V4 bumper.

Also finished the spare key in the 22B project.



I decided to make a DIY thread about it so here's the link if anyones interested.

22B Key Model DIY

Thanks for looking

Luke

Nah is just uses the two lower mounting holes from the WRX/RX wing. I didn't want to silicon it because I wanted it to be easily removable.

Interesting...was this an E-bay wing? I kinda want one, even understanding quality issues. My main concern is mounting...
