lovin those Prodrive wheels man, props on the car, lookin good!
Thanks guys! They are starting to grow on me more and more as i drive/see the car. I REALLY just don't like how heavy they are. Meh.

dam I must get swapped!
Do it! You won't regret it.

Also gave the car a proper bath today for the first time in god knows how long. Revealed like 10 new door dings from parking outside the dorms this year. :\

Also the extent of the damage the winter brought. Lots of spider webbing going on in the paint on the front bumper, and some of it just chipping away. We'll see what I can do.

Making a few lists of things I want to get done this summer for myself.

Red - High Priority
Black - Regular Priority
Blue - Lowest Priority
Green - Done

General
-Air Filter
-Bumper crack fix
-Fender liner fixes
-Headlight bulb
-General fender touchup

Driveability
- WRX Gas tank (have one at a friend's place waiting for me to pick up)
- STi Surge Tank + Sender (Can go in with WRX tank... HOPEFULLY)
- 04 STi Steering Rack + appropriate column adapter for GC (still not 100% clear on whether or not it'll work, methinks yes though)
- Lighter wheels, will trade the P7s for them... may keep tires
- Whiteline Steering Rack bushings
- V6 STi struts/springs
- STi (or the equivalent proper bore size) Brake MC + booster
- IC Cowl

Cosmetic

- Quarter panel swap
- JDM tails
- JDM corners + clear bumper lights
- V5/6 STi seats F/R + Type R cards
- Flat Fuel door
- Fender STi badges
- Tints (still maybe on this)
- Gunmetal Radio Surround

If I can accomplish ALL of that this summer, I will be a very happy camper! Here's to trying!

i thought you already had an STi gas tank.


and the 04STi MC is a direct bolt on to your current setup.
Nope, just a regular 06 Impreza tank.. guy said it was from a WRX and I knew it wasn't in the back of my head and still bought it anyways like an idiot. MEH

And yep, I think the 04 is the one I need, gonna check the size of the bore on the 98 STi one to confirm they are the same size.

Grimmspeed Antenna Delete

Never use the radio, so I tossed this on today. I have a Crutchfield window antenna on the way, but I couldn't resist putting it on.

Here are far too many pictures of the install:

Before:




During:






After:




I like it.

And for the new antenna:





Meh quality it seems.. but I am used to listening to music on my phone so it may just be normal. No static or anything like that.
