Thanks! I think I'm having as much fun doing mods as actually driving... which is probably not healthy for my wallet.

I had an existential crisis right before I ground down the lip on the rear quarter panels to gain some room for wider tires, and that's not even a big deal. I don't know if I would have survived cutting what you did

Looks great and the water on the backside of the fins says air is flowing!

Haha, I know what you mean. I did at least have the history of already cutting into my hood, so I had the comfort of this not being the first time. Cutting into my hood was nerve-racking for sure though! And now I kinda want the Singular Motorsports hood louvers to match the fenders... lol

Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - Adding switches #becauseracecar

next little project, in the land of I can't leave well-enough alone: switches! Need moar racecare? Add switches!

Bought a 6"x6" carbon fiber panel to use for the switch plate/box and 8 basic on/off switches. Planning on having one for fuel pump cutoff, one for intercooler sprayer (forcing to stay on), and a couple for ancillary power switches (gauges/radio/etc). I have 3 more open slots though (IIRC) that I'm not sure what to use for, but will run the wires for them anyway. Right now I plan to use "ejector seat" and "machine guns" as two of the open place holders... hahaha (I'm open to suggestions for useful things to add to this BTW)

Anyway, heres some progress pics. Still got some cleaning up to do, then figure out the mounting.





(ignore the random order of the lettering on the panel... haha. I labeled the wires before I started connecting them so the order is off. learned from that on the second set (numbers on the bottom)).

Ignition?

Oh, and you need one so that when pressed your taxes are done.
Or, one that when pressed puts duck tape over passengers mouth.
or, one that electrocutes anyone touching your tunes when jamming out to Taylor Swift.....


lol

Haha, I though about ignition/starter, but I don't really want to mess with those. Besides, they would not be an "added" function just a "neat" thing... As neat as a push button starter would be, its just relocating an existing function. And those two also are probably to high a current load to run through these cheap little switches.
