Default My Gf8 impreza L build.

So Im like new to the subie game, have a couple friends that are helping out and giving tip bits here and there. This thread will just be a little insight on what's going on with my car atm. Feel free to give your tip bits. Currently my is pretty much stock. Picked it up this past January. It's not that clean it gots surface to bubbling rust occuring on the quarter panel. Planning to to take care of that later down the road. The only mods down is just a new(used) set of rims, from a Legacy snowflake's. Looks much better than what I had before Which was like a deep dish 5 star rim. Horrible set of rims I have to say.

The snowflakes look nice I don't know why you would want oversized rims which don't fit well on the car. To each his own but I am wholly against the stance trend. Pick a nice oem rim. 2000 rs 6 spokes or Sti bbs

@CRX7 Well, my plans is not to go that stance nation ride comfort or what ever. I simply like the look Hebidoshi has for his gf. What I want for this car, is to be a daily and to be able to perform on the track(auto crossing) when needed. With that a being said. I'm still researching and probably going to experiment on what works best for this look. But Of course I won't know till I try this look. Just going to be a little different.

Also side note, I just got my fenders scruff ed up and painted already. I will post pictures of my old fenders and the damage that they were in when I got them. And I will post pictures of the scruffed fenders I got from certifit in a couple days here. also got them painted form the little bro as early presents. haha So blessed.

the Progress so far. Like I said I Painted the snowflakes rim gold here's a look. this was the process, I clean it down with this grease/brake dust cleaner remover. than sanded down with 220 grit sand paper and smooth down with 400 grit, and than wash it off with the spray stuff(used a scotch brite to do it with). than three layers of primer. 4 Layers of Base paint, and than finish it off with two coats of clear coat. I have to admit, I didn't get all the spot on my front rims I did. That sucked. But this was a cheap diy, cost about 20 bucks worth of paint at Menards.

First day I was only able to do the back two tires, cuz I work a third shift and I took way to long to sand & scruff the the back two. Lol so this is how it look for one day.

Now this is My buddy's gf8, sort of inspired me to go with this look, lol I have to admit his car is pretty dayum clean(and it had a freaken fresh paint, about 80k on it too). He picked it up for 3g, lowered it down from 3500. I will see if he can do his own thread. It be doped. I'll try go get better pic's of his car too

[IMG]20150617_211035 by takumi fujiya, on Flickr.[/IMG]

we'll get better pictures soon..

Like I said I had fenders Issues.... here's the left side. It just had a small dent. Probably could of poped it back out... [IMG]20150612_202829 by takumi fujiya, on Flickr[/IMG]


Right side..[IMG]20150612_202916 by takumi fujiya, on Flickr[/IMG]

[IMG]20150612_202902 by takumi fujiya, on Flickr[/IMG] Pictures looked decieving but man the driver's side fender was messed UP.

So the Process Began. I bought certafit Fenders for passenger and driver side. Only have one picture of the passenger side, because you know what they all look the same. [IMG]20150606_140420 by takumi fujiya, on Flickr[/IMG]

Sanded it down with Sotch Brite. It really just took 10min. [IMG]20150606_145623 by takumi fujiya, on Flickr[/IMG]

So, after scruffing up the fenders for 8min for both side. I was orignally going to buy the base paint, paint thinner, and clear coat to paint the fenders. But my little brother(p.s he works as an auto body technician? I think that's the correct term), as a gift painted my fenders for me. looked, doped. Even though my paint on the body is like faded sort of. It still looked nice to me haha. Check it out.
