Hi,

Latest and greatest shot as of 12/1/2014 (look on to last page for more):
Cooler-4814 by BPOS.P, on Flickr

I bought my PSM 2002 WRX back in 2005 used and used it as my daily driver up until my deployment to Afghanistan in support of OEFX. When I came home I bought myself a 2003 Leggy and decided instead of buying a new car I would show some love to the old girl.

Early pics:


After a jerk stole my original fog covers:


Car had several diffrent formats afteward you can see first hand how my idea for the car changed over the last couple years:

And that really takes me up to March of last year when I decided she was going under the knife for some much needed body work.

So I brought her to a stranger now good friend Tommy Papa owner of Papa Customs. Originally I wanted Tommy to fix a rusty rear driver quarter pannle and do some other minor work... About this time I started having fun looking for parts....and it all went down hill from there.

Hidden I grew tired of the look still like the noise. Kind of reserving that spot for other stuff.

I think it was titanium metallic powder coat. RK's would be killer in that color.

So the shell was painted today:
