I'm going for the "just got in an accident" look

if you wanted to peel it off, would it be possible. I know if it was just plasti dip it would but, would the thinner change its ability to peel off?

Nope at all. Plastidip in a can has thinner in it. Peeled it off many times

dude, just get a can of color matched paint and some body filler so you can ditch the garage door seal... yuck.

As for the plasti-dip, I'm planning on doing the lower half of my car before next winter just to protect from rock chips on the gravel roads at my local resort.

Can you do a regular wash on the car with the plasti-dip on?

Was next to you at a light then behind you on 25 th ave today (blue 2.5rs with light bar).

The plastidip looks good and car sounded great!

Your passenger side taillight is all out of whack. Hen you brake, the reverse light comes on and the outside light too as opposed to driver side that is the JDM-ish mod. Just giving you a heads up.

Cool to see you after checking this thread out a few times. I had forgotten you were in Washington.

Ohhh I'm sure that works pretty well then. Have you seen the high beams in the reverse light mod? No clue how to do it but somebody put headlight bulbs in his tails to flash at tailgaters.

I have the rally innovations bar and I can't see why it wouldn't work. Although I'm not entirely sure if a front mount would take up some necessary mounting points or what not. The lights might deflect some air too.

Pretty easy. Anyone who knows how to turn a wrench and read instructions could do it no problem. Only issue would be trimming the factory plastic skid plate because it mounts under it and sticks through.

I can take pictures if you want. It'd be after finals when I go home and switch out wheels. Winter set up not exactly necessary anymore (or basically at all this winter :-/)

Buuuuut it's not an STI. There is nothing wrong with a clean wrx but to pose as an STI is just shameful. I at least hope there's some power under the hood to represent. It's like putting cobra badges on a regular mustang. Blasphemy. I may be a bit harsh but if you say you're Rhys Millen Michael Schomacher you better be able to drive.

meh, the difference between an sti and a wrx isnt really the power it has. Its everything else like suspension and transmission.

My reasons for having it are 25% light, 50% protection, and 25% looks haha.

Ya know how IF/when it snows around here it will normally melt a bit then freeze and you get this nasty ish that you're driving through? -For those that dont know, if it snows in seattle its not nice powdery stuff for very long, it gets nasty in 24hrs 90% of the time - Well with being about 1.5inches lower than stock, I'm driving in ruts left by SUVs but still plowing the crap that they had clearance to go over so I wanted the bar to help break some of that nasty ish up before it got to my bumper. Also it may protect a bit if someone bumps me trying to parallel park.

Also, I like to just go explore stuff. Every so often I will just drove down I-90 and take some random exit into the mountains and go down random roads. Nothing crazy like rallying random back roads, just checking stuff out. That's where the extra light comes in. I always think big foot is gonna pop out and if he does I wanna see him from far away so I can haul ass in reverse cuz he's a scary mofo.
