Spec C roof vent showed up in the mail so I cleaned, polished and waxed it.





It will probably be sitting in a safe location for awhile though, at least until I make some progress on the engine swap.

Nice buy. It took me almost 5-6 hrs when I did mine over a month ago

I've been wanting one for a long time, so when I saw a used one come up at a great price, I snapped it up. I'm looking forward to/dreading the install.

Nice. I bought mine new since I couldn't find one used. My advice... take your time. I found a thread awhile ago where they took 4 hrs to do the install and I followed the same steps but took me closer to 6 hrs.

I bought mine new, and it's probably my fav mod on my car. Sets it off when it's open!

No doubt! Looking good Eugene!! Wish I had a fmic that fed from the top and not the bottom- cons of a aps fmic, but at least you got to keep your fogs. How much surface area is covered from the bumper? Either way your still ahead with efficiency.

Got a brand new JDM STi hood scoop and had it paint matched. I like it much more than the ridiculously huge and absurd carbon scoop that was on there when I bought the car. Slowly but surely I'm making this car tasteful (in my eyes). Hopefully wheels aren't too far away.

Paint those headlights!

Looking good man, the STi scoop is just the right size/shape for TMIC utility and aesthetic quality.

Thank you! I haven't decided whether or not I want to put in the work to paint the lights or source out the JDM projector headlights that I really want.

You want JDMs. They're not even that expensive anymore. When I bought my set three years ago it was like 750 dollars. Kills me to see them go for 500.

Yup. Either way you'll probably want to split the JDMs and convert the beam pattern (unless you can find a set of EDMs).

Well I don't want JDMs but thanks for telling people what they want... IMO I'm a custom type of guy. If your buying used parts(balasts/bulbs) separating the lenses anyways and modifying it... Why NOT make it your own. With NEW parts? That's half the fun anyways IMO


Looks not-so "on the JDM" wagon to me (pun intended)

Whoa dude don't need to get all butt hurt. He personally said nothing about retrofitting. I am not against that at all. I just think JDMs look way better than painted stock headlamps. I'm glad this place is still full of people who act like children.
