Looks great. I bought a Porter Cable DA polisher in hopes of getting what shine I can out of what's left of the Subaru paint.

Do the claybar. its worth it. Befor i jus did claybar and spray wax and call it good. Clay will make future carwashes effortless.

Got these babies scrubbed in.

17 x 9 Kosei wheels…..only 16 pounds each. Now you folks know why I was giving you guff for 20 pound wheels.

Wrapped in Bridgestone R1 sprint compound 255/40 17.

They work pretty decent. I wax the vehicles maybe once every 2-3 years and it cleans them right up.

CosseyWRX, just buy one of those 10x10 (or bigger) instant pop up roofs. They are about $100ish at Costco.

I'm assuming that the compound filled in the swirls and the wax provided the gloss? Did you buff or elbow grease. I gotta few swirls on my GTR that the previous owner put on I want gone.

Got my epic springs put on and also my mudflaps on Saturday. Today, I finally got my summer rims on =)











kinda messed up on the decal overlay but oh well. On another note, I wasted 40 bucks on taillight overlays =(. after an hour of trying to put them on, i just gave up

Picked up my new fuel rails from Precision Powdercoating today.. Always super impressed with the quality and turnaround of this place. Literally less than one business day between drop off and pick up. Install coming soon!

Go talk to the guys over at CCA about taillight overlays or getting them coated. They do amazing work over there.
