Used some of my friends red VHT night shade and painted my tail lights all red and did the 06/07 variation of the "JDM" tail light mod. Just until I can afford 04/05 tail lights.

Do you have a picture of the lip straight on? I'm curious how far away the "strake" areas on the outside sit from the bumper?

I actually need to get an alignment done something fierce. Made some adjustments so things are a little wonky right now.

Camber should be -3.5 front -2.0 rear

I could probably dial the front back to -3.0 and would be fine honestly.

Wheels were also slightly turned towards the passenger side in that photo.

Sorry for the N0oB question but how much trimming is required to run x11 wheels with the karlton flares for an outcome like what apetron is running? With as low as he is I would assume that the oem fender lines are pretty much non existent?

Beautiful car by the way, flares are the only way I could justify running a super wide wheel

you have to cut the hell out of the stock fenders so "trimming" is a bit of an understatement.

I wouldn't imagine that he still has his fender liners in I know mine are gone

I had to cut quite a bit to run the flares. Cut off about 2" inches in the front and removed 85% of the fender liners (have the back portions to prevent crap from getting into the doors).

Cut about 3" or so off of the back of the car too.

If you're gonna cut, you should cut as much as you can for maximum clearance . I've seen 1 person just tack the flares on, but then you defeat the purpose of the flares and of course can't run low.

This is gorgeous, i've never seen that! I love how far it sticks out! It reminds me somewhat of the cusco lip, which is my favorite lip ever made for a subaru! clean yet looks functional.. gotta love it.
