I agree biker.
Most of my favorite shops are closed on the weekends.



Here's one of my latest "style" mods.
ARC Ti cover, along with a Crucial wrinkle red rad diverter plate.




It's come a long way since the early days...

^Obviously it works. Just look how beefy it is... and the hardware. Might get some weight savings over the stock setup.

finally wingless! I now have an impreza with alternative bling on the trunk.



The wing is up for sale in the vic private classifieds.

flame away, say what you think, if it's offensive pm me, lol i want feedback.

Personally i think it looks like one of those dudes with piercings and shiny jewelery.

That looks like it's for a Honda and mounts to the tow loop in the center of the bottom of the trunk. How does it mount onto the Subys?? To the exsisting tow hooks on the right or left? And just extends it?

Have any DYI pictures of the install?

Wow, the best source for ARC.
That's a tough one, because the stuff is hard to find, and expensive when you do.

Honestly, keep your eyes open in the classifieds for ARC stuff. Pricing is usually half of what it retails for, plus the bits are mostly metal, so one can refinish them if necessary.

If you can justify the cost of new, Fizz in New York has a ton of ARC stuff in stock, from the FMIC kit to engine dressup parts. Gruppe-S also has ARC, but I would rather drive stock than buy from those goofs again.
