Ok, I finally was able to take pics and basically take some inventory of what I had, I was surprised by a few items I found.
1) New shoes, OG OZ Chronos. Need to have them resurfaced since all 4 have some light curbage on them. But after that, off to the powder coater for some GOLD treatment, and a "Cherry Blossom" red OZ sticker. They even came with OZ valve stem caps.
2) Picked up some new stopping power complete with knuckles (Which I didn't need). Need to take them apart, clean them and send them off to powder coating. Not sure if I'll do red, maybe orange, who knows.
3)Picked up some interior bits from JDM Gary. JDM Gunmetal radio and shifter bezals along with JDM lighted cig lighter. Also the ashtray will be going away and replaced with an "L" pocket which I have to cut the back off to accommodate the Tein EDFC and radio remote eye.
Also pictured is a new shifter joint since mine is very loose.
4) More interior goodness from JDM Gary, JDM road flare, visors, and a neat EDM Road Tax tag holder.
Thanks, it's the little touches that pop sometimes. Not sure if I'll install the fog kit since I always have the STi covers on. I've thought about the JDM corners but the not quite sure about the change over.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY
ID Vehicle: To simplify repairs/fixes/etc I'd love to know the cars history.
