Ok here may be a stupid question... how to other drivers get picked up for sponsorship from companied like Tic and Grimspeed?

Is it the usual letter and presentation or is it a personal relationship kind of thing.

Personal (read: adult) favors

Maybe that's why Hankook won't call me back?

ROFL thats what it takes some time in my experience it seems... it brought a whole new meaning to the words 'handshake' just to get gas and oil for my car in jamaica from Esso/Exxon Jamaica.

interior is now pretty well gutted (still have some wiring work to do as well as some under the dash stuff).

cobra imola s installed (corbeau fx1 pro on passenger side). crow harness, sparco harness (temporary until cage goes in). sti doorcards have been replaced with wrx ones.








chop chop time. Here's the end result. now the question is, color match the scoop or leave it white? it actually looks suprisingly good white. the car does usually have white wheels on it and the graphics scheme will be primarily white

Paint the hood scoop white, and then mount some lights to it.

relocated the radio and made a plate to hold all the future switches




installed the sparco safari 350mm wheel, momo hub, and nrg release. needed to get the steering wheel closer..this works perfect.









regarding the scoop, already color matched it

I've had a hand in building this as well.

I'll let them post updates, though - i'm just a tech junky who is blatantly using carl's money to get his fix.

The lightbar was built before the car was sentenced to a full build - it was originally going to be a rallyx/DD car.

lightbar really isn't relevant anymore - the lighting set-up is being completely overhauled

Hey Carl, can I blatantly use your money too? Except, when all is said and done, I want to drive it too.
