now it just need the OG burnup lip to complement the whole package.
I'm not a huge fan of that lip though. And Burn-Up stuff...well that's easier said than done.

Again wish there was a simpler, flat version without the lower portion on each side.

Flat fuel door finally installed:



I also worked to recreate the original fuel door sticker that is no longer available from Subaru:



I also replaced the gas cap, and the plate behind it with new ones as well

Looks great. I just got the whole kit to do mine. I'm a long way off from installing though.

Update:

New OEM antenna, finally installed after 4 years of owning this piece - never got around to it and found it hiding


Cleaner "gurney flap" I found on eBay, its basically a small lip spoiler re-purposed.


Lots more to come with the interior back together...I also was able to wire the seat height adjusters with the help of a friend, so that is also working now.

^ change the rear bumper plz
Never!

Some updates:







Interior is finally back together. I installed the following:

New items: OEM carpet, kick panel, outer radio panel, radio trim, button blanks, JDM hazard switch, HVAC panel & bulbs all went in.

The stainless door sills, '02 WRX radio thrown in. Put the floor mats back in for the summer as well.

I also had a local friend help wire in the seats so the electric height adjusters on the Recaros now work too!

While the carpet was out, I added SLS CLD sound deadening tiles which has helped the interior be a bit quieter for sure - only added a few tiles but will use the remainder on the door panels.

More to come soon!

Was delayed when someone hit my front bumper while it was parked, this pic is after it came back from the body shop. It's all better now.

Put the fluted lights on as well as a permanent solution to mounting the front plate. More to come as always, once I get off my butt.

I'm interested in hearing how you like the flat bottom wheel on the Auto-x course. I've heard mixed reviews, some people say that it really throws them off when things get twisty.

Well, this thing doesn't do Auto-X courses, but it is definitely taking some getting used to. I almost wish I went with the standard one, but saw the gap between the airbag and the wheel was more prominent with that one, versus the flat shape.

I am considering switching still though ha
