Sorta custom. I got bored with this JDM badge laying around. Kinda sucks but is pretty cool. Used a yellow paint pen and my shaky hand.

Waterjet would come out super clean. The laser cuts the front clean, but has a little blow out on the back and leaves it a little rough. I just test fit, and need a few minor tweaks. Ill probably send it tomorrow to be cut from aluminum and powdered.

What type fasteners are people using to attach these? I thought I would be able to reach to the back and attach a nut on the back. Just found out thats where the crash beam is sitting. Little weary of just threading it to the plastic, seemed a little loose on the test fit.

It's not a high stress part, I think threading it into the plastic will be just fine. Especially if it's going to be aluminum. What colors are your wheels? If you're running golds/bronze, I think a bronze plate would look great with that.

Yeah, the ones they sell are just threaded into the bumper cover with screws. I off-road with mine attached, and I've never lost the delete, though the bumper cover popped off many times back then.

Regular old fashioned plate screws?

Here's a sneak peak...




Here is the finished prodict to utilize the front opening to keep the stock look of the hood scoop but with the Vent I made under it and the homemade vent in the back of it to let the air flow through and out.

With the way the vent is shaped it in theory cant go in the hood in any way, shape, or form, and will continute to flow out. this also protects against water going into the vent which everybody alwasy is concerned about...





Will add photos in a bit when photobucket stops acting up!

interesting!!! i bet the performance of the intercooler (even if still top mounted) would be largely unaffected. from where i sit, the vehicle has to be moving 80+ mph for the ducted airflow effects to be effective.

even so, why did you do this you madman? why not just remove alltogether?

i actually like the emblem , would prefer it to be a bit dimmer then that but maybe its due to the fact that the pics are taken at night? either way it looks good. i think im starting to see toyota do something similar to this

yes it is the photo that's making it look so bright. under normal viewing it looks subtle and matches the tone of the headlights.

i bought my setup but it can be diyed pretty easily
you'd need a few white LEDs and an oval of plexi glass.
You have to position the emblem on top of the plexi, then the led's behind the plexi. it helps if you embed the LEDs within the plexi as much as possible, so carve out little inlets in there for the led to slot into if you can.

fiberglass "R" on the subaru badge, then wrapped in alcantara to match the airbag cover.

Matches rear badges (anagram from stock badge letters).


Incase you're wondering why "R", it's because I've always wanted a R34 as a little boy, but as I grew older I realized that it's not as practical as a DD compared to a 5door WRX.

I understand. I always wanted a big yellow school bus so I got a vinyl sticker banner that says yellow bus on my windshield.

No, I was making fun of your lame ricer "R" infatuation. I had that once back when they brought the Type-R's to the US but I was never lame enough to put an "R" on my car that wasn't that. What do I know though, it's a really cool thing to do.

Ah, it's a bit hard to tell tone of voice on a forum. Well we're all entitled to opinions, like how some folks might find an old 2.5Rs to be a POS in this day and age but I think they're still awesome as heck. The gent down the street with a blue RS was actually the one who talked me into getting a Subaru. All in all I'm okay with my "lame ricer 'R' infatuation", but until I can afford one of those (also afford to maintain it)and a family car at the same time, I'll settle for having the "R" on my WRX and try to pass it off as a real sports car.

All alcantara interior:

Need a better handbrake handle

Yes just like I am as well Mr. Type-R. People wouldn't be wrong in their assumptions about 2.5 Rs's. Most of them are garbage and in horrible shape. Mine however isn't at all. You're the type of sti owner that would try to pick on a little old rs to show him how cool you were then crap your pants when it pulls 10 cars on you. I think what you did itself was a cool idea you just executed it wrong Mr. PoweR. Not only that but I'd really hate to see you get into an accident and the air bag do something it's not supposed to do and someone get hurt. I think I fiberglass R flying around the car could hurt you pretty bad.

Wow, someone's got a complex. Please reread my post where I said that "they're still awesome as heck". That's a compliment, unless you live in bizarro world.

Actually I only drive on the right lane most of the time, so Fiat500's pass me on a daily basis. If I want to drive like a prick I'll take my car to a track, thank you sir. Also I don't have an STI. 5 speed is hard enough as is for a newbie MT driver like me, I don't even want to try driving one with shorter gears.

Like I said before, that's a matter of opinion. And I respect that.

For the record I'd like to point out that the 5 ton epoxy bond between the TIN subaru medallion is stronger than the .5mm tin hook that is attaching the medallion to the steering wheel cover. Also, it's an Alcantara covered R, a bit softer than your average variety.

Chill out, relax. I'm treating you as how I'd actually treat you in person at a meet. Think you can show me the same courtesy?
