^ looking good, how easy would it be to swap back the fog covers?

It would look like you would need to remove the bezel/fog trim, but can the covers fit over the larger jdm sized bulbs?

The lights are attached to the bumper and the bezels are truely surrounding them so I expect come winter I can just clip in the STi covers without any troubles. I will post more pics tonight as I need to have the car on the road for tomorrow. My lights wont turn on till I get the relay which should come in by Saturday. With the wiring, I am planning on re-working the wiring so the lights come on regardless if the main lights or high beams are on.

Did more sanding and then throw on some primer this afternoon. The top of the pocket came loose when I was sanding. Going to find a good epoxy and then fill out the dips next.

I see a lot of nice mods on here.I am currently in the market for a Subaru Impreza Wrx or sti and i will make a supercar out of it when it comes to exterior.

At first I thought you were going to clear the headlights. It is a simple mod and well worth it to get those ambers out. However polishing them makes a huge difference and get use to doing it yearly.

I'm going to do a projector retrofit this fall and I will likely clear the headlights at that time

I thought about painting it white, I chose black since my mirrors and door handles are black. I still need to find some side skirts to complete it
