OK...so what I have been waiting for!!! I have been lurking for a hot minute trying to see where you were taking this! Respect and thanks for keeping it classy. It kinda hurts my insides a bit, but it is good to see that you are taking care. More pics please!

I'm at least glad I sold it to a guy that is willing to love the **** out of it. It pains me often. I think about regularly and how I made the wrong moves. I should have taken the money that I put into buy an XT and just picked up a beater Forester. Then used all the extra money that I saved from not buying an XT and dumped it into fixing up the Impreza. It's funny because I moved into that Impreza when I didn't have money, so my mentality the whole time I had it was that I didn't have money...even though I did.

Keep up the good work, man. I would love to see pics of where this project is for you now. Also, you friend with the vinyl hookup...does he also do installs? I am thinking about doing my Forester in the 3m Brushed blue that you had on the RS. What was your feeling on the end result with the vinyl? Any complaints about it?

I would have stuck with vinyl, if the body was rusting up badly. I was very happy with the maintenance and look of vinyl. However this new paint I got can't be beat!
