Default Re: Rob's 2014 WRB STI Sedan | 6mt rebuild and LGT long gears

Well the time finally came to get the 4th gear grind under control. Frankie at AWDTuning was the only one i considered for the task. He was able to get the car in and out in 2.5 days while also putting in the Legacy Spec B long ratio 5/6 gears! Its great having my car able to shift smooth again, and the extended gears are awesome!

Default Re: Rob's 2014 WRB STI Sedan | Blouch 20g XT-R just livin' day by day

So I guess this could be considered an update of sorts. I finally decided after 28 months that the car deserved a full bore detail.
So everything started with a foam cannon and wash with Chemical Guys Citrus Wash & Gloss.
Wheels cleaned with Chemical guys Diablo Wheel gel
Followed by a full clay bar treatment.


Once the car was prepped it was time to start adding some shine!
First order of buisness was Chemical Guys Glossworkz Glaze
Then a coating of Jet Seal
Topped off with Lava Paste Wax

Afterwards used some Chemical Guys Black on Black to dress up the few plastic trim parts around the car and Adams VRT to dress the tires.







Here you can also see the STI's stable mate


While I diddnt get any shots of the interior, here is a list of what I used inside:
CG Leather cleaner / Conditioner
CG Inner Clean
CG Mat ReNew
CG Window Clean
CG Stripper Scent Air Freshener

Default Re: Rob's 2014 WRB STI Sedan | Three year update!

Well i know updates have been few and far between. This has been a rough year for me, financially, personally and automotively. (not sure if that's a word, but I'm gonna run with it.)
The car just had its 3rd birth day last week, its amazing how fast time goes by.

I've had 2 close friends have serious Subaru issues, one of which never recovered. So that was rough, but I hope everything works out in the end.

1 Note of positive news... I decided to start a profile on Wheelwell. I heard about it in one of Matt Farah's one take videos. Very quickly my car was in the top 50 of most modified cars! I'm even now part of "Team Wheelwell"... whatever that means, but hey Its cool to me!

Wheelwell | Build it. Drive it. Share it.

You can check it out here if you like.

At this time I don't plan on selling the car, but I have been driving it a lot more, and just enjoying what I built, instead of focusing on what it can beat. But time will tell.
