Yeah i had one that wasn't working bcuz the wire would not stay inside the connector so i pulled them out and got them seated back in. But, after thinking about it....i may have accidentally reversed the 2 of the 3 wires and it may be spinning the wrong way. When I checked to see if they were working I didn't think about what direction it was spinning so i'll have to check that when i get out of work tonight. I'm hoping that is all that was wrong. As for the grille now i can get a jdm.

I'm hoping my grimmspeed 160 didn't fail. I called them to ask about failures and they said it would fail open if it did. They said i could check it by putting it in a pot of boiling water.....when it reaches 160 degrees it should pop open. But I think a reversed fan my be the culprit. Which would also explain the melted grille. That happens to be the same side that had the problem fan so it was probably pushing all the hot air right out to it.

Gave Sparkles a coat of wax before she goes into storage for a couple weeks while I'm traveling for work.

Painting side skirts this weekend. I'll have some leftover paint so I was wondering what to do with it. Has anyone ever taped off the honeycomb and paint matched the bottom of the stock grille? Or what about the area around the fogs?

Fog light area looks much better flat black like it came stock. My whole bumper was painted PSM by the previous owner and I definately prefer the stock look.

I agree with this. Although mine grew on me ( everything was wrb after the painter failed to listen). A year later someone backed into my bumper anyway and destroyed it. So I bought another one, from a girl that had it all painted pink. Lol. I sent it off, had it done blue, and everything that should've been blue and everything that should've been black was painted respectively. I think it's cleaner this way. Sure the painted black isn't the plastic black, but it pulls it off well

And also, I wanted to have him paint my side skirts, he said since they were stock, and the tire shine had soaked in, that sooner than later the paint would later easily flake/peel off. I took this with a grain of salt. But I complied with him anyway. Something to think about. I'm not positive what truth there is to this. But I figured I'd mention. mattTHEpainter has a nice thread going as far as painting questions and issues if you wanted to inquire him.

Thank you do you have a pic by any chance? I'm just curious. I was leaning toward bottom of the grille but I don't know if it'll even be visible

As you can see, all the parts that should be flat black are silver. I put black electrical tape along the strip behind the license plate to make it look a little better, but the whole area inside the bumper is still silver.

Wow that really looks different. Thanks for posting that I didn't realize how much it would change the look of the bumper. Good idea with the tape, i dont know why anyone would paint that part.

Mine was all blue too, I've only painted the fog light surrounds so far... Still need to do the center

They probably painted the whole thing out of laziness so they didn't have to tape off anything.

havent posted in a while so i figured id show what ive been up to.

was in winter/rallyx mode.
stock WRX suspension with 1" front & 1.25" rear lift blocks actually raised the car 1.5" all the way around.









Switched up into kinda summer mode.
STi struts and top hats with COBB springs.
TEIN super streets coming soon for more low. and hopefully wheels tires sparts front and rear and a rear lip.



also just did an STi interior swap, no pics of that yet. i need to go get everything cleaned up real good and take good photos.

The car was in a small accident from the previous owner, probably just too lazy or cheap to paint the new bumper right. There's only one coat of paint and no clearcoat, hence the flaking on the bottom right side. Both front fender liners don't fit properly and the front of each side skirt is broken and held on with wire.

But hey I only payed $8000 for it with 54k miles.

Finally itching to work on it again and start with the suspension.

First mod to the car since 2004 (old pic above) Factory passenger headlight cracked so I picked up a set of UK300's and the grill at the same time.
