Good way to "Have your cake and eat it too". Cake being a nice paint job if you happen to do somekinda show or like a clean car. Eating it too being able to actually use your car for events. I'd love to do this kinda thing when I come around to the paint part of my prodject. Something anyways.

The wrap is just a variation of commercial vinyl. Much like the stuff you make decals out of. The rear bumper is wrapped, the front is painted, which looks worse. You can remove the wrapping, but it takes some elbow grease to get all of the adhesive off the car when you are done.

More updates comming soon.

We finished up the complete vinyl wrap on friday and took her to the LaCrosse, WI Subaru meet. everything you see is vinyl, including the white.

Thanks to the local guys for taking these pics!

Just wait till you see the next few months of progress.

Car spent all day at the track getting tuned and run-in with our new up-and-commer driver behind the wheel. 40+ laps of pure abuse at BIR!

F'ing SLICK! Really nice how it turned out. I kinda miss the green just cause you don't see it often but still really really smooth.

Next up is to get rid of those wrx brakes and powerslot rotors. I didnt want to ubgrade all of the hubs yet so i had to source 04 STi Brembos so they would be a direct bolt-on(almost). The fronts went right on without an issue but the rears needed some help. I had the kartboy rear 2 pot adapters..i'm not sure if these are meant just for the subaru rear 2 pots calipers or if they are made for the rear brembos as well as i had to mold the plate the bracket bolted onto to get it to fit.

Stopping has definitely improved a ton. The only downfall is that they weigh ALOT. looks like i'm going to have to get some lighter wheels to combat the heavier brakes.

Currently i'm using the oem pads but hope to be upgrading soon.









Front WRX Powerslot vs. Front Brembo

yes the car is still alive and ticking, albeit, put away for the winter.

swaped off the rota torques to enkei rpf1s...much much lighter. lost almost 4lbs per wheel.


and more weight reduction. VIS carbon fiber trunk. i didnt weigh it but it is definitely alot lighter then the oem trunk. imo it is a very nice CF trunk.





I've also added our 38mm EWG Setup and boy does this thing scream! It is absolutely amazing to drive on the street with the little td04 w/ EWG Kit. The boost comes on so fast and so hard...probably one of the most fun set ups i've ever driven. All of our other PnP goodies are on it as well which helps spool up a ton too. My next move is to swap the turbo for a vf30, but now i'm wanting to keep this td04 as long as possible because it is a blast to drive with the 38mm ewg.

Matt over at 555 motorsports has been tuning the heck out of this car and that as well has alot to do with the way the car runs..which is awesome. I would recommend him to anyone...he is a very smart tuner!


my guess is we may be in the 2500lb range now which was my goal.

now with more CF and new headlights. i'll be painting the mesh on the hood to some other color..not sure what color though. also, the headlight housing will probably be painted as well.

i'm really starting to like the old school front bumber with the newer headlights and hood...it just looks really classic.

Please take the mesh out of the scoop. Don't bother painting it.
Also, it doesn't look like much air would get through anyways.
