Huge thanks to granny for helping me with my breaks today. And the wheels and tires and for helping me clean her up some and a few minor things I'm sure I'm forgetting.

one of my goal is to swap a STi engine into the late 90's early 2000's sedan legacy. They just look so good. It would be so undercover that no one would know.

Got started on my grille. Cut out the inner grille and sanded all the rock chips out and now it sits in primer ready for paint and a nice mesh thanks to

The grille looks good. Cheap aesthetic mods that make a big difference.
I did something similar, but left the emblem. I gotta update my build thread.

Another cheap mod:
Some guys use an electrical tape wrap to cover the chrome strip on the molding too.

Yeah there is way to much chrome on this car for my liking. I plan to get painted door handles and color match them to my car then paint all the trim black. I also plan to paint the black trim around the whole car and hopefully get a new chrome strip to go along the car. i think with the chrome on the bottom trim and the badges it would be a solid chrome to color ratio.

I could help you on the handles this spring. I'll sell them cheap. I've got 2 parts cars with painted handles. All you would have to buy new or used form somewhere else is a drivers handle. Funny, that one is broken on both cars. Another funny one is, on all 4 of my 1st gen legacy cars, the passenger visor is broken or missing.

Haha that is weird. But that would be awesome if you could sell me some handles this summer! Thanks!
