There's a few nice ones in here. I like seeing the occasional guys from back in 02 on here that still have their bugs.

Finally got the motivation to work on finishing my light weight sound deadening project. I did the floor, ceiling and pillars with a foil covered closed cell foam and the doors are get a adhesive backed closed cell foam/rubber lining. Both rolls together less then 5 lbs. Made a nice little difference only having the top and bottom done this last. The car interior stayed waaay cooler in the sun and it took the edge off the road noise and you can hear the motor a lot cleared with less background which is part of the reason I wanted it. Having the doors done should make a nice addition and improve sound quality from the door speakers. Goal with most of my modifications and customizing is to add a little more refinement to the driving experience with adding weight or taking away too much of the rawness of the vehicle. Just feel as I get older those are things that really matter and make the car fun to drive for me. The back doors I think will make the biggest difference as they get so much noise transfer from the wheels well as they're completely bare almost and have only a little 8"x5" piece of sound deadening foil on the center of the door from the factory. I am constantly checking my rear windows thinking they're cracked open or a door isn't shut all the way because I can hear so much air flow and road noise from the rear wells. My next little project on the doors down the road will be trying to stabilize the windows so it doesn't sound like the doors falling apart when closing with the windows down.

Very well thought out customizing there. Has great visual flow. I've always been pretty anti wing but the way you have the car setup it blends in perfect in a way the wing doesn't look overbearing. I've always wanted all the ociari front end pieces. So hard to acquire these days and for that whole set up we're probably talking around $3k nowadays for very used examples.

I have the same forge overflow and matching power steering res. Best looking, best quality one in my opinion.

Quite a bit of work to do till I'm happy but so far it's decent and a little dirty for my taste at the moment but..

Playing with stickers. Test fitting new trunk decals, carbon fiber puffy Subaru technica and S402 black/chrome STI. And I always liked the look of the Advan fender stickers over side markers. What do y'all think yay/nay?
