how was the process for taking the plastic piece out of the bottom grill? are there any spots that look strange without it in there? im not going to get a fmic, but ive always thought about ripping that out.

I'd say yes because they're the original GRs (and the rest of us 2011+ hatch owners are just evolved GRs).

Going to try and do my window trim soon. It's starting to bug the **** out of me all of the sudden for some weird reason.

I think they look cleaner and less factory ricey without their pointless side vents and grand am style quad tip exhausts

but the widebody fenders are important for herrafrush fitment and running those ever important 265/35-18s on stock wrx's

from the looks of it you have to take the grille with the bumper. I'd keep your bumper though, it looks better

Awesome, appreciate the info. It's going to be sad to see it go man, I've been watching you mod the car since early on in it's life. Hope you're satisfied with the new vehicle. I understand what you mean about it never feeling the same. Mine was T-boned when it was 7 months old and it was rough, took me a while to get over. No frame damage luckily, probably wouldn't have gotten over it if there was.

If you just cut along the edge of the black piece, it will probably come out really nice. I would use a good box knife and just keep running it over it until it starts to cut the whole way through. Unfortunately with the front mount, I had to trim more than and then had to trim more on the sides than middle.

I used a box knife for the top part because it had a nice groove for it to fit in, but since I had to cut into the painted part of the bottom portion, I could not keep the curved line smooth with a knife so I ended up using a dremel. It's not perfect, but you cant notice unless you get up close and look for imperfections. Just be careful about the tabs for the tow hook cover. I tried to avoid cutting them to the last second and I couldn't. So the inner side pops out a tad and I need to figure out a good solution for that.

I had some vinyl wrap left over when I did my roof. Then after I put the stripes on a good many of my local Subie club members liked the fender stripes THEY HAD TO DO IT TOO! So on Photoshop I laid out the arc and size of the letters then printed it on heavy paper. Then used it as a stencil to cut it with a exacto knife on the car. Now it's back to being just me unless I get copied

PS: lol
