Haven't updated this in a while. Swap fund has now reached my goal and I'm officially on the hunt for an STI donor. Going for the full swap: engine, tranny, brakes, suspension, gas tank, interior, and dash. :D

Also, this showed up today. My dream lip:


EDIT 3/18/12:

And installed. Wow, fits like a freaking glove. NOTHING was holding on the lip in the first picture, purely friction. Ran to Lowe's and picked up some pop rivets and took the bottom two images. This is a genuine lip - it has "C-WEST" with a part number stamped on the bottom :D

This could be sick. Plans?
Buy, mod, drive Subaru til I can't anymore :lol:

But for this thread, not sure yet. Just felt it was time to showcase my love of these great cars. They've saved my life some of them, they've taken up most of my life others, but I love them all.

Thanks Bob! I like it more and more every time I look at my front end :D

Car now has a coupe spoiler as well, just to hold me over until I have the power to justify using my Ver5 wing :lol:

Is that CWest Lip actually made out of plastic, or is it fiberglass? I need something strong enough to take hits from cones at Auto-x's that can bridge the gap to a lower splitter.
