Not and Impreza, but whatever...Here's a 3/4 shot filled with a bookcase (8' tall), a ton of books, DVDs, canvas', buckets of paint and my easel.

and...

No boost, but it's still fun to drive and holds a lot of junk.

There is a special wheel paint you can get at your local Auto Zone (I forget what its called). You can tape off the tires (its better than making a cone of cards), sanding them down to remove the finish, then normal primer, wet-sand, primer, paint, wet-sanding, paint, etc, clear coat, etc.


Its really easy, just takes a lot of time. Oh, and do it outdoors, trust me

I have never painted anything metal, what type or grain sand papper should i use. And when I wet sand do you just wet the papper or rim?

Yeah, just get a bucket, and with the paper iin your hand just dip your hand into the water. Its pretty simple DIY mod, if you feel nervous, just practice on some random pieces of whatever before you try on your wheels.

I used around a 400 grit to start, then worked my way up, with the primer you don't want to be so corse that you see scratches on the surface, but not too fine to where its smooth and the paint has nothing to "grab" hold of. Then with the paint, a fine paper will work, you want the wheels to be smooth by the time your done.

I didn't wet sand when I did the painting part, just with the primer, but they probably would have came out a lot better if I would have. You don't need to wet sand right off the start, all you need to do is get the 'shine' out of the wheel's surface.

If you have any questions about it, hit my up on PM. There used to be a thread on here at one point in time about how to do it.

i have the cusco 22-24mm adj rear sway for the wrx, fits great..

but ANY wrx front sway will not fit my 05 (unequal) do to the header getting in the damn way..

unless you have Brullen headers i think

our front sway is about 19-20mm or so..
if all you want is a 21mm rear sway, i suggest just getting a Stock STi sway and use whatever endlinks you're getting, bolt them on the opposite side of the stock OEM sway bar.. that's how it works..

Hmm.. Thanks for the info! Since I have the 06 and we have equal length headers this year, will the fronts fit?

FYI, the Stock STI 20mm rear sway bar ONLY fits with the STOCK OEM endlinks. It won't fit if you buy aftermarket endlinks.

+1 for this, I tried it myself. Had to switch to the FHI 20mm RSB to fit my Whiteling HD endlinks.

prodrive is hot. Greddy and Kartboy's are cool too.
You should pick up some kartboy bushings and short throw before a shift knob though.

I doubt it, our cars are the "forgotten breed", why bother with the 2.5i when you can make parts for turbo cars? They will say, "if you want hp gains, why did you buy the lowest of the group? Get a WRX".

Its sad but true.
