Interested in the headlights on that Leggy wagon, I guess it follows the cosmetics over functionality theme. Good pics!

Last weekend was a fun one. I believe I'm the first non-crosstrek or outback to run these. These are the Motegi Racing MR-141 finished in rally gold. 17x7.5 +40.

Test fit went great! Cleared the Brembos and the coilovers with no problems.

Mounted! Fitment isn't quite where I want it so a small spacer might be needed.

Though I get lots of comments on my headlights being amazing, I disagreed. Since painting them about 2 years ago they've become hazy and literally green on the inside. Time for some more DIY.

Before:

Disassembly (oven at 250, baked for 10 mins):

I wanted to continue my yellow theme in the headlights as well. I used Duplicolor Metal Anodizer (Amazon) to spray the high beam reflectors yellow.

Now to refinish the lenses.
600 grit:

3000 grit plus polishing with Mothers headlight polish:

Then the headlights were heated back up and sandwiched together. Heres the finished product! So much more clear and matches my yellow big fogs

Default Subieaaron's 2004 STi build thread


Just finished up the install of the Turn in Concepts crossmember bushings that I saw on Blingstrom’s page. These actually make a very noticeable difference in stiffening up the chassis and driveline, and they’re only $35! Huge props to TiC.
Above is stock on the left, new on the right.

Couple of pictures from Speed Ventures Buttonwillow trackday:

Unfortunately the temperature was 110°F, so I was battling overheating issues all day. Almost every car couldn’t stay cool, even a brand new stock WRX. Next time I’m going to Laguna Seca in 70°...

Yeah the one weekend I chose to go had unbelievably high temps! Still a good experience though and taught me how to slow down a bit to keep cool.
