Does anyone know where to get an MRI rear subframe/differential cradle AND a GTSpec front subframe at the same time?

My 2002 WRX Sedan is headed to the shop to have a 2007 STi rear end grafted on along with several replacement parts.

The plan is as follows:

Remove all audio equipment and trunk carpet
Order parts for subframe and hardware replacement
Installation of-
Cusco rear swaybar mount brace
Perrin HD rear swaybar mounts
Cusco T Braces
SPT H Brace
Cusco rear trailing arms
Turn In Concepts rear trailing arm bushing kit
STi forged front control arms
Beatrush 3pc. full body skidplate

While the work is being done, we need the subframes, and I'd prefer to get them all at once. If you guys know of a vendor with reasonable prices who carry GTSpec as well as MRT/MRI, the sooner the better.

Widebody kit completed about 8 days ago:

We are painting 01G Platinum again, but brushing in the stripes this time. Sparco is sending us floating decals for finish before clearcoat. Please excuse the primer blends... it's a lot worse from the front, the ChargeSpeed brake duct install required complete refinishing of the fog light area... age had chipped the plastic a bit, and really getting a 2013 car out of this has been a challenge.

Will do! Hopefully I'll get home from work while it's still light out today and be able to take some.

It makes me love my guards, strakes, and aprons even more.
The only thing that's throwing me off is that shark fin.

I've always felt that set up doesn't match from front to rear. Boxy front lip and strakes, and the sharp rear strakes and rear apron looks off. It's a solid build, I just don't think it looks balanced at all. My .02$.

Default Wheel colors

So since I have the wheels off I'm trying to decide on a color. But its hard to find something that will go with the WRB. I don't like green or yellows so those colors are out. Had these done in the photoshop thread and just looking for some opinions on the colors or even color suggestions. I don't think I'm 100% go on any of them although in person it might be a different story.

Which ever colors gets rid of the scoop.

I'd go with gold. Can't beat the classic set-up.

I personally like the red. But with the cf hood, black lip and black sideskirts i think some black wheels would look good too

Try flat black. It should work with wrb and your hood.

Lol thanks I do like the gold just not the stock kind of gold. Maybe something deeper with a little bronze mixed in it. I don't think any color will get rid of the hood scoop .

Well the wheels are already black. The hood is going back to wrb and I'm going to order painted side skirts strakes and spats. Funny thing is I hate red but it seems to look good on the 530's.

Maybe I'll just go with a fluorescent or sunburst orange to make'em pop. Oh decisions

Silver or lighter shade of bronze everything else looks like ass. Dude you get it enough about the scoop I don't want to waste my breath because you seem sold on it but...it does not flow at all with your car which for the most part is not to shaby. Its like a hot chick with a huge out of place nose.

Once again IMOs are like ***holes

Not really. I just don't understand why everyone gets so upset and butthurt when someone does something with a valid, functional reason (rallycross), but when people lower their car so much that the lip scrapes on the ground if they have a passenger or groceries in the car everyone claps and cheers, because ERMAGERRRD IT LOOKS SO AWESOME

To each his own, I guess. But there's no application where 'slamming' the car makes it perform better.

Is this also, as you said, ****ing horrendous, then?

You will still get butt hurt folks about the low cars too just as much making your car look like monster truck. I think you wont find many here that don't know about these cars racing origins.
