Tinted windows - 35%



Clay bar, wash and wax (taught the girl), also convinced my dad to get back into a Subaru with his awesome loaded Outback



Went to WBM and bought a bunch of **** (big thanks to ISC Suspension!)



LED interior, reverse and headlights (1000x better than halogen, plug and play olm kit, buy it.)

Perrin shift stop and bushing (also great, buy it.)





And definitely more to come!



Thanks for looking at my stupid pictures!

Nice progress so far, looking forward to seeing more. DGM (best color IMO) is hard to keep clean but I have been using chemical guy's products to keep it nice and shiny

Thanks man! Yeah especially with the amount of pollen this year, the car is ALWAYS dirty. I use all Meguiars stuff and wash every weekend. Really nice color when clean.

6/15
Came home from work yesterday and decided to attempt installing rear spats, mud flaps and rocker extensions. Ran out of time for the front lip. That will happen before the weekend.

I haven't been able to find a write up on installing spats or rocker extension/side skirts so if you have any questions just ask.

JNA Performance hooked me up with this lip kit for a wicked good price













Install was pretty easy, used double sided tape and all stainless hardware from Home Depot. Install took about 3.5-4 hours total by myself. And I think it looks pretty good. More pictures to come



Also, found the led license plate bulb kinda sorta melted...

Finally installed the coils I won at WBM, huge thank you to ISC. Still have to get an alignment and dial everything in but really happy with how it came out. Added bonus, car is so new nothing was rusted or seized haha made life so easy








(****tiest iPhone picture ever taken)





Definitely more pictures to come.

Actually wasn't too bad! Persuaded it with where i drilled the holes but after a day in the sun it conforms pretty nice. Especially for the price.

The guys over at Subispeed sent me over a new oem license plate bulb socket and upgraded me to the replacement LED bulb/housing assemblies and these things are bright! Absolutely recommend.

Thank you to Chris and the rest of the team over at Subispeed, best customer service over there.



Also installed the JDM style rear fog/brake/reverse light from SMY Performance, will post pictures after I finish up the wiring.

Finally got around to wiring the SMY Performance rear brake/fog.../reverse light. The supplied connectors were a bit of a pain in the ass, I ended up having a pretty ****ty connection in a few of the connectors so I had to use some better ones from Home Depot. Yes, soldering and heat shrinking would have been better.
After messing around with it for a little while I got everything connected, wired and tucked away behind the trunk lining and panel. Ended up just using brake and reverse light option.
Quick note that the SMY wiring guide says that the black/white wire is brake power, I went crazy testing the wires only to find that the brown wire is brake power and black/white is fog (running light) power. 2015s and 2016s may be different, the guys at SMY Performance didn't have a comment on it but they were very helpful when I spoke to them.

It's not as bright as everyone I spoke to says it is, which is a good thing. The extra reverse light is nice and the brake light looks great. Definitely a worth while mod.

Picked up the OEM rain guards for a deal. Super easy install and look really nice, they're very low profile.






Again, ****ty iPhone pic lol

I'll take more pictures after a proper detail this weekend. They look really good against the tinted windows too, they don't have any discoloration or anything. I got OEM so I can't speak for other brands.

Cars looking great man! I recently installed my ISC coils as well, how are you liking yours so far? I have found them to be really smooth for coilovers, only small sharp bumps annoy me at this point.

That train station pictures looks ALOT like Stratford, but I recognized Fairfield in a lot of the other pictures. Car looks great. I live in Stratford, good to see other people from Fairfield county on here. We need to start organizing meet-ups.
