Finished up my grill badge this morning.



Pretty pleased with how it turned out, it is good enough for me to put it on.


Really only one tiny blemish at the bottom that I can live with.

What paint did you use? When I did mine I used some Molotov graffiti paint as it was a perfect paint code match but it hasn't held up to the elements very well.

Had my headliner recovered, pretty pleased with it.



Trunk is back on.


Soo glad I had those stupid protection strips removed from the doors.


Took some measurements off the STI calipers to do some comparisons

Had a custom Sub box made. It's supposed to fit into the trunk recess on the right hand side. I think it came out looking pretty darn good, hopefully it fits!

Doors are back on with new weatherstripping.




Trunk is back on.


Both mirrors are on.

Hood scoop for the haters (honestly not sure if I'm even sold myself yet. Will have to see how it looks when all together)


Also got the necessary latches for the split/fold rear seats.

It's been a long time since I last posted so here goes

First off, I picked up another RS :oops: The body needs some attention but it is a TX/AZ car so it is totally rust free and it has a 2003 WRX swap 🤘

What can I say, that makes 7 cars in the current fleet now 😎





Picked up a 2018 Nav unit for the BRZ - Had to repin a few wires but now I have Carplay too!


The Coupe was the most filthy car I've ever been in so we got to work on getting it clean..




Seats had to come out and the whole lower dash was removed for cleaning







With everything put back together, it was a much nicer place to be.. No longer do i get out all sticky from having touched the carpet 🤢




Got my STI key cut for it..


Finally, a few more parts for the Sedan showed up too

Thanks man.. There was coke spilt all over it.. It was in the carpet and all the vents and the center console.. Really gross. Cleanup took about three days, all in.. Totally worth it.

That's disgusting..and a lot of crayons. Remind me what years of intermittent wiper stalks will work with our cars?

I think it is like up to 03 WRX.. Not sure though. I just got the part number from Northursula and ordered the correct turn signal stalk for my car so they would match.
