So where do the new skirts not match up? They look really nice, gives the back more of an aggresive look for sure

Well, where the front v-limited lip wraps around the bumper it comes up on the side a little bit. The s206 side skirts in the rear come up onto the side of the car as well. The rear aprons are just flat and don't come up in the side if the bumper at all. If the chargespeed versions went on a thinning diet, they would match perfectly. These follow the flat part of the sides really well but not the flared ear of the back of them.

It's the little details that would make it perfect but for how inexpensive they are, I can't complain. I really like how they square the car in the back.

I'm a big fan of the rear aprons. Have them myself and am surprised that they are not very common. Not a fan of the chargespeed aprons either.

They are pretty cheap and extremely easy to install. The rear end is lacking and so boring compared to the rest of the car. With these the back end doesnt look as awkward and high, and it definitely looks more aggressive. Now I just need a rear diffuser that I like to complete the rear end. The current ones are either too ricey, cheap looking, or too subtle (r205).

Those are my favorite rear aprons. Definitely a subtle touch. They look great and are on my to buy list. Seems like everything I have in store for my car you have just done to yours. Looks great Jason!

Yeah the rears look awesome, can you buy the rear aprons separate? Or would that be silly.

I'm leaning towards the r205, I like to get an authentic one but the gray wouldn't match anything and I'd hate to paint it black. We'll see...

Thanks! Do you mean just the rear aprons or just one side of the rear aprons? I can't buy one side, just the pair.

I'd like to say that I prefer it without the Polarizer but I'd be lying, I can't figure out how to use it properly , the image always looks fake to me. I need spend more time with it or get out a tripod to take multiple images and blend them. It may be my polarizer too, I've had nothing but problems with it every time it's on my lens.

The paint can definitely start to look fake if you overdo it. Especially white. It hides so many reflections already. For this shot, I think that just getting rid of the reflection on the windshield would make a big difference.

What i meant was can you buy just the back pieces instead of the side ones, or do they all come together in a set? If that makes sense haha.

Yeah, you can buy just the rear, the sides are separate.
I bought the aprons (HERE)

Since I have done the rear wider delete, I've been getting a few inquires about which version I did and what I did to install it. I'm not doing a full write up but I have a couple pictures from the install.

I've decided to use a full delete kit instead of a rubber grommet. The cost of the real kit is minimal, but the benefits of having a seal on the inside and outside plus the added protection of being impossible to steal or pop off were well worth it. I think my fear of someone stealing it or pulling the grommet out in the middle of winter were some of my concerns.

The wiper delete is from Password:JDM and details can be found (HERE)

Here are a group of shots.

Before



Rear plastic removed



The 3-10mm screws to remove for the motor



Remove the rear cap and unbolt the 10mm nut holding the wiper arm on



Items from Password:JDM





I had to shave a bit to make it fit flush



Bolted together through the glass



Close up of the outside cover



Finished image!

Doesn't it rain in Maine? Yikes. I would die without my rear windshield wiper.

But I respect the homage being paid to the Honda world.

lol, i would think that the spoiler would overhang enough, rear wipers are rarely designed well enough to be really efficient IMO. not to mention with an aftermarket exhaust and unleaded fuel you're likely getting a lot of carbon on the window, so a wiper with rain would just smear it...just sayin...

Haha, yeah it rains, snows, hails, sleets, just about everything but since I've never used a rear wiper in my life, I felt it was a useless item sticking off of the glass. I wrote a lengthy explanation one page back about my reasoning why I never use one. It might make sense after you ready it.

And yeah, giving props to the Honda crowd with PJDM

That and the road grime, pebbles and sand being ground into the rear glass every time the wiper moves

Love the wiper delete! I did this on my old VW hatch and it was great. I've often thought about doing it to my WRX as well. Seeing it done confirms that mine now needs to be removed Great looking ride!

Thank you, I think my favorite thing about your car is the simplicity and how clean it looks. Power mods are awesome too , but your ride is just so clean. Any plans to make the brake light in the wing red to match the taillights?

Of coarse I never pay attention to the clear light back there until someone mentions it, lol. Now that's all I see.
When I remember to purchase more red overlay I'll get it done. I'm also working on fabricating a lower brake light that fits into the stock rear bumper. Something like the JDM light for the sedan but made for the hatch.

I'll need the overlays for that too so I'll get them all at once.

Haha. I love rear wipers. Removing it is like a chick getting a breast reduction. It's like slapping god in the face.

Haha, understandable. You want what something that didn't come with the car and I want to get rid of something that came with the car.

If you drive fast enough, you won't need a rear wiper
