Default changes to the battlewagon. What do you think?

Here she is about a month ago.
Simple, plain, and never spotted.




This is the most recent pic taken from the Specialty meet.

I think you need to find an image host other than subydude.

I thought that was you Bwco. I guess I can post a "spotted" reply now.


whitelines are gone, they sucked.
I'm running Konis and Whiteline springs until I get the chance to buy a set of GC coilovers. I have an idea as far as spring rates, and love the idea of adjustable height without a $2000 pricetag.


Wheels were painted by me. I went to Nu-Brite for a quote, and they wanted $600 to refinish the set. It took me about 6 beers, and $30 in materials and they look awesome in real life.


Hey BT, the eyelids were the most cost effective headlight mod I could do. I love the EDM spec STi lights, but can't justify the $1000usd cost. That's an UP/DP and exhaust combo right there.

Hypa, I didn't know you were at the meet. You didn't even say hi to your old pal Tora? Sheeeez. I saw your car rolling in, I like the wheels although I wouldn't have bothered with the polished lip myself. I think your car looks sharp.

BT, you can always go with a set of these



Tora, I didn't even see you there. I was hanging out with impulse777 by the front, spent some time with BT, then wandered around for some pics. I tried to talk to a few others, but there is a bit of arrogance in the subaru crowd. Too bad too, since I know they're members.....

4wheelflyer, I use the racks in the winter, but found a wicked thread that outlines the OEM parts needed to strip the racks off. I may just take them off for the summer, and when winter returns, reinstall them. I raise the car for winter anyway, and replace the stock wheels, so it wouldn't be a big deal.

RC, I have a good picture of the back of your car.


bwco, polished tips are for show cars.


thanks all.

Hi Hypa The car look's great in person.I think the black window silver car matches the black spoke silver lip rims perfectly.Maybe it reduces the contrast or something.

thanks impulse.
black and silver is simple, and easy to keep clean.

Hey BT, who was it that you were talking to when I approached?
I'm guessing Penphoe was the other I was talking to?

And really, I'm not a bad guy!

I agree.
Maybe on a sunday or something?

And it doesn't even have to be limited to wagons, as long as we all park together. That would be cool for pictures sake.




quest, nice choice on the wheels. I love the GM with polished lip, but since mine aren't factory Rota GM, the color will be a bit different than yours. I think yours have a bit more bronze than mine if I remember correct.

valley wagon, was that your WRB at mission raceway a few weeks back? I noticed the car was pretty stock except for some UP/DP mods and an exhaust. I was curious if it was you, and what you ran?
