i ordered Rockblocker front yellow film for my headlights and my foglights cause i wanted a different look up front, but there was something off.
i didnt like the look of the little yellow piece for the corner lense.


so than i got some amber corners, and i think that made the look abit better.

Are those stock 98 wheels, or did you paint your 99's? If they are painted, what type/ color paint did you use?
i actually just painted them gold. i used the duplicolor gold can i got at a local shop.

i washed them really good. wet sanded it first. and then applied light coats of gold. came out really nice i would say.

some people put on a primer first, but i just did the gold, and think it looks pretty close. so i was happy.

when i got my car it came with the Prodrive WR setup (bilstein STi struts, and the P1 springs) however, the fronts were installed incorrectly and created play which was more unsafe if anything. you can kinda see in the second picture, the shaft is worn down almost 30% :(



so i just ordered some KYB GR2 struts for now... coilovers soon...

alright, so i just picked up some clean Tein Flex coilovers the other day which i am super stoked about. yay! :clap:



might get the EDFC for it once i get some more money...


so i took my old set up off first. which wasnt that bad.



than while i was working on putting the rear coils on. the mail came! :D i was at my friends (echelon) house and he just got his rally armor flaps in the mail... he was thrilled to say the least :lol:
so today was a full subaru day lol. me putting on coils, and echelon puttin on the flaps. i took some snap shots, but my cell phone sucks at taking pics.




im going to lower my stance a little bit tomorrow or something and take some more pictures and update. but right now it sits alot better than before. before i had a saggy butt :( but now its good.

handles way better too, cornering, not body roll oh i love it lol!

Hooray !!!

try driving on any rough roads yet? I'm curious to see how those feel. Nice thing is that you can slam your car and not worry about rubbing FTW!

try heading up western ave. towards bodega for a quick run, thats a decent road that isnt in the best shape. Or, there is that one road that turns off western ave that goes all the way into novato or something like that. cant remember the name but thats a fun one too
