thanks for the input^ i am going to rotate it back a little more. I really havent noticed any differences with it on or off, so I guess its just for looks... It's functional in my mind.

the little unit inside the assembly after I cracked it open

resoldered new wires and then wrapped in electrical tape

ps: yes I know theres a bubble in my carbon wrap

I'm sure someone has done something like this before, just never saw anything when I was searched around before doing it
Mine did the exact same thing same spot

Where did you splice into in order to get power to the USB cable? Have any pictures of that?

there is other people with these flares but I'm the only one to have them molded, does that count as unique?

It would be better if it was angled backwards so it at least acted as a heatstroke from the turbo..since that's where the majority of heat would be stopped.

the flares themselves are purchased from a guy off Nasioc/IWSTI that makes them and sell them for all the GD chasis. They come with rivets to rivet on but you will still have to cut your fenders a good amount for them.

I don't understand the flares on flares comment, you do realize that the entire fender under the flares has been cut right?

He means that you're putting bubble flares on top of the already present squarish factory flares.

If you're still not sure, look at this JDM Impreza sedan. It's the lowest trim model of the Impreza sold, which doesn't come with the factory flared fenders:

Well, no... the factory flares compromise almost half the entire side of the car. Unless you smoothed out the front fender and rear quarter panels like the way they are on the wagon and that car above, you didn't remove the factory flares.

I'm not criticizing your work, I'm just voicing how they appear to me.

My unique custom mods may not be too unique, but its definitely custom since everything had to be cut and fitted. But here are my grills, upper and lower, me and my friend Matt @ CustomCarGrills.com made.

He now will be able to start making them to order out of whichever grill material you would like.
And my licence plate delete is a vinyl decal he was able to make with me as well.

Do yourself a favor and just look at some of the better custom stuff on here. You have stickers. You're really stretching saying it's custom because you had to cut the stickers to fit. There is no custom about it dude.

This. Post it over in the unique stickers thread. It doesn't belong here.
