Did you guys use any anti corrosion treatment on the cut roof edge?

After taking an edge tool to the opening and finishing it off with a really non aggressive bastard file I used touch up paint to coat the finished edge.

How many of those dremel cutting discs did you go through? Those things always break and fly all over the place.

I never used any paint to seal the edge. Just used silicon sealant with the gasket. No rust 3 years later

I used whatever the funky drill bit is for the Dremel to cut the roof panel. Smoothed out the edges with a half-round mill bastard then sprayed a couple of coats of rust inhibitor. I'll lay a bead of silicon gasket sealer in the gasket once the final coat of color is sprayed and ready for final assembly.

Does the scoop make that much of a difference with air being brought into the cabin? I'm not fond of the price... But, gotta pay to play I suppose.

Train horns


While my horn is down I put this on. It's functional but not so practical

Those tail lights are awful on both of those. However, the car does sound pretty good. Definitely needs a header though.

I've been looking for some air horns that are the same diameter as my dead Hella super-tones. I'll put the grilles on the front of them. This way I'll have the stereotypical WRX look with horns that actually work

2003 subaru wrx m2 exhaust - YouTube

Well for starters both look like pretty nice cars and def awesome that you're girlfriend is rockn a subie too! As for the exhaust on my first bugeye I had the cobb exhaust, which appears to look exactly like the one you've got on now, and I personally did not like how it looked. I feel like our cars pull the can off much more nicely. Def get a downpipe and uppipe though man it'll really open that exhaust up.

i started off with a perrin twin tip muffler. it looks like the stop bugeye exhaust exhaust it was full 3''. it looked stock and subtle.
then i want a tuner looking exhaust and straight traded for a greddy TiC Comp. i love it because of the burnt tip and not so aggressive angle compared to the HKS.
then i just said #becauseracecar and put together a custom straight pipe (dual staggered 3'' pipes), angled, sticking much further out than traditional exhaust, with burnt tips.
