LOL. I have seen some local that were plasti dipped and I wasn't impressed. It always has that thick texture and sometimes fades brownish. Im doing my shifter bezel next.

Finally got what I needed and installed my 2007 steering wheel with a 2005 airbag. Very simple swap.

I had been told the 2004 wheel was smaller and the the same about the 2005 wheel. I have not taken measurements yet but I will say the 2005-7 wheel feels a lot thicker. If the diameter of the wheel is different I suspect it not being by much.

Another update. Finally hit 40k.

before (terrible iphone pictures)


After

Thats pretty cool to see some STi's out there that aren't high mileage with tons of problems.

On another note The Sti is down again thanks to AEM's great quality meth kit. Im really considering throwing it all out and going aquamist. Their customer service is depleting rapidly..

I have had quite a lot of issues with their meth kit since day 1. Im on my second broken injector fitting. This is all within 4k miles of usage..

I have been doing Headlight restorations for fellow Subaru owners. The Unabomber himself I think more famous on Nasioc than here came by the shop to get his headlights looking new again after trying to restore them himself multiple times. Here are some before and after pictures.

Thanks!


Update on the car. The 05-07 interior swap is complete visually. Along with that installed new speakers since the panels were off.


What do you guys think?

Finally dyno'd the STi on the same dynojet on a really hot day. It made 287whp/360wtq. Will post the dyno graph shortly.
