Heh,
I got a new Blitz filter, and my rear strut bar arrived earlier in the week. Installed both on Saturday morning.

The strut bar was a biatch, I ended up taking the whole back seat out, then the side panels in the back, and the seat belts, just so I could to the strut tops....DOH, and I am pretty sure it was about 200 degrees out at the time. Sunroof and windows were down, no damn breeze, and I was hot. Oh well, at least its done with.

Next stop, painting side skirts, install my Version 6 lip, ans MRO Scooby Styling spats. Anyone recommend paint shops in this area (NOVA babeee...ownz joo)

Not painted or installed yet. I'm not really into the "unpainted, installed body kit" look :D The spats are on route from England right now. i test fitted my version 6 lip and it looks like crap. I think I will be selling and getting something else.

probably about $100, I paid $140 (without shipping). It's just not what i wanted. The piece is fiberglass still in wrapping and original box. Let me know.

What do you mean 3 piece Justin Lip, did you break it?

Yes... I know.... :(
I still never got to see the box that it came in.. cause most people say the box is cooler than the lip :)

I can probably Epoxy this lip back together... I know Brian(SilverSube01) did that to his... about 12 times so far... hehe...

I am almost looking into getting the Carbon Fiber P1 replica lip that Imprezer is selling. I heard it has the best fitment out any lip available, replica or real....
I think its going for $300 though.. but the cost of a ver6 plus getting it painted is near that...

I was actually thinking of getting the same lip, but wasnt sure how a carbon lip would look with painted sideskirts and the painted spats I am getting. It might actually look kinda cool, but we'll see. Is Imprezer selling it yet, or are they still making them?

Hey All We'll Drive,

when you get that stuff painted, please post up the bodyshop and the quality of their work.

I have a p1 lip that I want to get installed and painted as well as have some small dents and scratches removed.

thanks!

Richie went to this place in Lorton VA called Percision Collision. He is the bitchiest person i knwo when it comes to the care of his car. And he said that they do really good work. There pricing was pretty good too. Just another option.

Yo what up!

Actually, it's 3 times now. Like I said, all you need is a Plastic-Weld epoxy that is sold at Pep Boys, some good tape, and some sand paper.

Heck, give it to me for free! That way, I could have a spare lip for when I need to repair the other!:D

Actually, I've become a pro at fixing that thing, I think I've got it down to about a 3 hour turn-around painted and all.
