Default Just got 02' blaze yellow wrx

I just bought an 02 blaze yellow wrx with around 50k. This car is a hybrid swap and needs some cosmetic changes and touch ups for sure... (Grille, Hood, Mirrors, and maybe a buff job) So I'll be looking for some parts over the next few months.

The Yellows are rare & pretty cool, congrats.

Getting that ugly hood off it would be a big step in the right direction..you're right, the grille is pretty ugly too. +1 i like the mirrors

I'm new to Subaru and I'm thinking about painting the hood to match or at least trying to save it from the faded cf look. Also installing some aero catch latches. These hood pins are now rusty and look like garbage. Thanks for the welcome

It has EL headers, full TB exhaust, vf39 turbo, and aftermarket manifold.
I got this from a dealership thinking it was a stock wrx (engine wise) until I really looked under the hood. I got the car at a good price it needed a head gasket and some other things. The trans has a warranty and was replaced by the dealership but 4th and 5th syncros are still bad. So next is a free tranny replacement.

I actually found the previous owner on here and I'm sure it has an opensource tune. So needless to say I'm going to need to get an accessport gauges and a tune for sure.
I don't know how well I trust the opensource tune
