Ugh that light blue is my COLOR! Good job, guys!

So it looks like they changed their mind on the color-matched hood, huh? I like the Seibon one. Hot stuff.

Yeah I don't like the tacked on fender flare look but it's certainly a lot less work than molding in large flares like those or the old Impreza WRC ones. Everybody and their brother had this same kit too.

Vorschlag has a nice writeup on their build of Brianne Corn's Pikes Peak Impreza where they built sheetmetal flares from scratch and how much work that was. They said they would never do it again, they would just tack on some flares.

That cage is soooo far from the a-pillar, b-pillar, and roof line. Ever see a prodrive cage in person, they are so tight they don't even need any gussets. I dont think that would even pass tech.
