I did the same thing a while back and it feels great =).

Mishimoto intercooler hoses installed. Gotta dig the stero back out and fiddle with some wires.

Got my new wheels in today... now I seriously have some spring fever! Tires will be here soon as well 18x8 +35mm offset...which I'll be putting 245/35R18 Toyo T1 Sports on. Haven't decided whether or not I'm going to put them on the WRX or BRZ yet. And yes... I know I have seven sets of wheels and eight sets of tires >_>... Wheels and tires are like the new purse/shoes/othergirlyaccessories..





Not bad for 18lbs.

Wow, sounds like you need to do some spring cleaning to go along with your spring fever.

Wheels look good!

Got a wild hair today and de-badged my trunk. Waiting for the wd-40 to eat through the residue then gonna buff out the rest. Thinking of getting some black plasti-dip for the silver trunk insert, wrx front fender badges and whatever else is silver plastic on the front end.

Maybe the wheels too, depending on how expensive the cans are and how the rest turns out.

I'm thinking about getting some rear shifter bushings as well. How much of a PITA was getting them in and how much time should I figure in installing these?

The reason mine probably was such a pain was because I had my car jacked up about 2.5 feet on the drivers side. Best advice I would give is lift it from all 4 corners if you can so you can give yourself as much room for angles as possible. Also, a 1/4 flex drive will be your best friend; with the exhaust and driveshaft in the way, it makes for an adventure. Front ones can be done in an easy 15 minutes, the front and rear I'd give yourself a safe 45min-1hr from beginning to end.

I think advanced pwdercoating is 60 per wheel? But anything above 17's is a little more, but I could be wrong.
