Default my 04 wagon STi kit

I recently finished mounting up my STi PU lip skirts and rear spats. Final fitment will be done after I get painted. I will be painting the front bumper caps with the blister to match but the lower lip, skirts and rear spats are staying black(just need a quick coat and clear)

For the love of all Subaru's please take some of those stickers off the back. Looks really ghetto. Other than that it'll look good. I don't much like the rear bumper caps but that's just me.

Just reread your first post. You should paint all of the pieces not just whats on the front bumper. The only thing you can leave black is the front lip.

First off I think it looks pretty good that way,
but i say you repaint the lip, caps, skirts, and spats black (they look grey), and then vinyl wrap the top half of your car (roof and pillars) black as well

Paint all of it. Might want to look at getting the fog light covers and hood scoop as well.

Thanks for the input guys...glad you (mostly) like it lol
Im working on getting it lowered, budget project cars take time. bad enough I had to deploy to get this far...I want a good set of coils or full coil/shock combo when I start racing it more. Sorry though I like the black lip skirt spats, the caps for sure need paint matched and im gonna get the lip skirts and spats at least all the same shade of black. as for stickers...there is still space. My billboard space, besides when it goes to the races it will get more.... this isnt a show car here lol look at the cracked paint on the bumper...the dents in the door...its a prior city car(philly) im lucky I got it in one color and minimal dents. I agree with vision.dynamic I have considered just getting the parts painted in black, its different, its a wagon afterall. Even my wife said at minimum the caps should get painted, but leave the rest black. As for the scoop. that will come when I get the STi top mount, no fog covers, I want the JDM larger fogs. :-)
