I like that paint scheme. Prob I had with plastidip was brake dust would not come out of it

While 12-13 is the same in shape and fitment, the housing is chrome, not black.

08-10 STI/WRX grill will fit our cars but, 11+ STi/WRX grills will not fit.

Now that's something I've never heard of. Is anyone else having that issue?

I have a set of '02 WRX wheels I want to 'dip eventually (once I decide if I want grabbers or geolanders and mod the suspension accordingly).

That looks great! Barely noticeable up close from what the pictures show. However I see a tad bit of overspray so you may want to touch up your front grill though
Side note-new wheels/tires/suspension pics shall be uploaded next week

To get brake dust off, I used a shammy and that would clean it back to new.. Anything else would just not work

That looks awesome! Why couldn't Subaru do this and use a bracket that doesn't leave damn holes in the bumper cover!

These fit nicely but the chargespeed skirts didn't fit properly. I haven't gotten to experiment with any other brands yet.

Hmm, is it just because these don't have the "shark fin" towards the rear of the car?

Anyone ever taken their headlights apart? Mine are on the beaten path of oxidation and I don't know of any products that work enough to spend money on.

That's initially why I asked. They're quite shiny. What method did you use?
