Default The good, the silver, and the yellowness.. and carbon fiber..

my friend got a wrx motorswap... pretty quick.
went for a lil photoshoot
sorry for the low qual...







The silver and gold wheel combo is superb.
one of the most clean-look RS i've seen
not to mention its quick too..
with a good tune, it'll run fast no doubt.

the swap..




the 05 Legacy big brakes on the RS~! its is noticeablely bigger than the wrx brakes & rotors




The question is.. should i paint the cf lip?
i want to paint the sides up to where the license plate is and leave the middle cf part alone... (the area where you would normally see the fmic)
what do you guys think? i havent seen that done around here..
figured it might be unique.. for a unique colored car

great pix mang. our cars have come a long way since last year. now that i look at your car in a better pic, you definately should paint the slats on the hood scoop, and try painting at least the parts of the lip that you mentioned. but definately get a cf hood.

did the silver RS used to have a FMIC?

Would you want to trade your silver RS hood w/22b vents for my VIS CF Hood with 22b vents?

no, its never had a fmic. i wish.

yes paint it.. if anything leave the center portion CF as that doesn't look too bad.

unpainted looks like poo, your car will look great with it painted
