Thanks guys,

News of the day, Found my clear side marker lights, some stupid law office picked them up from my friends mailbox thinking it was an employee's package.
I now have everything I ordered and tomorrow all my new shinny lights get installed :D

This little changing lights project is now running into a month long task, but whens it done I won't care :)

Thanks, I Got both off ebay, only place I could find them. The bumper turn signals are classic imprezza, search that and you'll find them.

NGK Iridium plugs and NGK wires.

JDM front Bumper mesh grill (below)


Mount Front PU JDM Lip (below, best pic I could find)





Install Godspeed SC-024 16 Way Adjustable Coilovers





And Lastly gunna put these bad boys on for summer - DRIFZ 303H FX 17's with NEXEN N3000 Summer tires 215/45R17







Once this is all done I will run it this way till motor goes at which point 2.5swap is in order then comes engine mods.

Some newer pics, not great quality winter setup too.

With summer right around the corner, my 17"rims and tires will be installed within a month, or here is hoping.

Nice progress. FYI that lip is for the v5/6 (or 2.5rs USDM) bumper. It won't fit the L bumpers
Thanks, the lip I was told would fit the L bumper also but may need a little force so thanks for the heads up, any suggestions for a good comparable? Thanks for the help.

It won't even be close. It will work with a lot of modifying but then it looks bad. I remember seeing a picture of a member who did it but he had to rivet it a lot so it looked all scrunched up

17"rims are installed. Pics to follow. However I have noticed already in very rare situations like heavy cornering I feel a slight rub or if there is a lot of weight in the car going over a bump the top of the fender I think barely touches the rubber.

Best suggestions to fix this, any helps as always is greatly appreciated.
