That's where the wing came from. Someone on NASIOC tipped me off that Edwin was selling one. Had to sign up on the GF's account since I'm not on FB. It was probably a silly financial decision, but uh....S203 wing.

Oh, I got more pics. It's literally in perfect condition as far as I can tell.

Sweet wing, guy in our area used to have one on his WRB 2006. It was eye catching.

Thanks, I'm excited for it. Currently working on finding a wingless lid. Got the carbon stuff installed over the weekend:








I like the subltety they add to the look of the car.

Looking good! I'm a big fan of that look and have been wanting to get those skirt extensions for a long time... My only problem now is if I just buy them or try to build something better

Very clean.

Side skirts make a big difference in GD's appearance.

Just add a bit of rake and its perfect!

Thanks guys. I don't have the means to make these on my own, so bought a set instead. I can say Aaron they fit perfect as designed, can't go wrong with Japanese craftsmanship.

I actually need to lower the front about 4 mm to account for the slightly taller 255s.

Just bought a trunk lid and will get the holes filled in and repainted.

Life again got in the way of stuff and prevented me from updating and all that.

Well after a 4 month long wait, the diffuser finally showed up from JDM land:








And I suppose I never posted anything about the wing, so here you go:






And the JDM trunk to be repainted, nothing special:

Default Re: Baron's '05 STi journal - **Carbon bits installed**

And yesterday, I installed it. Pretty straightforward work, but as with anything, you just have to go slow and measure a bunch of times, but the way I am, I measure way too much and am too careful, so this took most of the day to do. I also had to stop and make a couple hardware runs, as well as sand the diffuser a bit for clearance. The nice thing is that the fins came pre-installed so I didn't have to spend time with OCD measurements and all that. The instructions, while in Japanese of course, had nice full-color detailed photos too.

Per usual, I didn't stop to take photos, but I can say that I made a damn straight cut by hand with the Dremel and no guides/markings; pretty impressed with myself and using nothing but the ol' eyeball. Only needed a little correction. After sanding/finishing the bumper cut, then came a LOT of test fitting.

Here she is:






Here you can see the widening I did on the left side of the muffler:


The muffler has a tendency to wiggle/shift to the left of the car under driving so I had to widen it so they don't rub into each other.

Also had to widen near the tip since under test-fit, it was contacting there as well:


Overall, I'm pretty damn happy with it. Finally completes what I've been going for. Last thing to do is getting the trunk repainted and the wing mounted up.

'til later!
