Default New Project Car/DD Bugeye WRB

For new people checking out the progress. There are new updates in almost all the pages and I try to post pics on all the pages . Thanks again for checking out my car.

I Got my New Project and Daily Driver on 11-22. Its an 03 WRB WRX with 75k. I want this page to post up new progress pics of what im doing to it.
When i got her home
Sorry Crapy Phone pics.


Mods
-HKS up-pipe
-Blitz turbo timer
-Front and Rear Hotchkis sways
-2004 STI gauge cluster
-JDM STI shift knob
-Cusco short shifter

Day1 11-23
I got it registered in my name . Also went out to buy everything i needed to paint my Fenders,Rear Quater, and Trunk. I went to NAPAto get my 5 Cans of WRB paint in a Spray Can. The paint is a Single stage. I know i should have took it to a Body Shop, But I want to be the one to fix it. Got sanding paper, and other supplies.

Day 2 11-24
Woke up extra early and excited for this! As you can see the pics its not that bad. It just needs some TLC. Body work was already done so i just had to sand,primer,sand and paint.
This is how it started off this morning.




This is after we maksed it off and got to work. I know its not as professinal but it gets the job done.

Color sanded the spots. Also added the wing. I think it looks better with it. Used a Clay bar on the entire car. Its nice and smooth now! Also got a Titek DP on 12-1 for $30!. Here are some more pics of it nice and clean.

Thanks NAPA Matched it pretty good. Anything close to the color is always better than primer i think.

I know. It had them on but we couldn't make a deal with them. Those lights were nice. So I'm just looking for some stock ones.

honestly doesnt look bad. I would suggest just temporarily paint matching the headlights WRB.

i dont think it would look to bad and if you have paint left, why the hell not?
