Couple more pictures while the car is being prepped for more exterior mods. The paint has been corrected and sealed. Sealant is from the Chemical Guys Carbon Flex C9 .Chemical Guys WAC227 - Carbon Flex C9 Protective Coating Kit (4 Items)

The sealant is tough to apply, my hands are not massive but, they give you a small foam block applicator, tough to apply on the car with such small block. The bottle can also be improved as I probably spilled 1/8 of the bottle into my hands. I am not clumsy either, applying onto the applicator is weird...The smell can keep you high through out your detail . The clarity and slickness of the paint is amazing. I have yet to drive the car into any element but it repels water like it claims it does.

I ran out of time so the car sits with a coat of sealant ( on the panels I have..lol ), once the whole car is sealed, glaze, wax and JetSeal, all from Chemical Guys will be applied.

Nothings beats Authentic Subaru Parts! Fitment is perfect.

What do you have to say about the tail lights? Are you happy with them? Would you still take them over painting them if you had to do it over again? What is the build quality like on them? I'm in the middle on whether or not I want to get a pair of them or just have Nexon paint mine...

The lights are top notch. Instructions are in Japanese, but its simple enough, just tap the wires to the wires behind the lift gate/door.

The previous lights were professionally wrapped using LamnX, but the Valenti lights has a better red hue. Not to mention everything is LED. I'm happy with them well worth the wait from Japan.

Little pricey compared to Optimum, and CQuartz, I was just curious what the hype was all about! I only used 1/3 of the bottle, I still have my hood, rear door, and rear bumper to apply to. I guess its worth its money if you think it can do 2-3 cars? It claims it does more like 4 but I highly doubt it....

Got my hood, rear driver door, and rear bumper back!

I had also installed the carbon rear under diffuser and rear apron. Despite the fitment issue I had read online, the set I received fit nicely. I did have to sand the edges down so it fits flush with the bumper. It did not require me to grind down the bumper at all. The rear aprons needed more sanding, the end would rub against the diffuser. The holes for the bolts did not align either....A little disappointed as since it came from a Japanese customizing shop, thought it would fit like a glove. Guess I can't complain it could be worse.

Anyways, the diffuser is a 2 piece design, where the under board is designed to channel the wind between the board and the bumper. By the looks of it, it seems I can get a longer bolt and some washers so the under board can sit a bit lower.

Thanks guys, appreciate it!

UPDATE: Those who know what the Chemical guys Carbon C9 is about? I doubted it's ability and only purchased out of curiosity....well upon applying one of my supporter's decal, it had rejected the adhesion of the decal. I had to remove the sealant by using compound and polish, finishing off with a paint cleaner. The feel of the paint is night and day. Both slick like glass, but the sealed area is much much slicker, slippery?

Not much of an update but wanted to give a bit more review on the sealant as its not around much.



Iphone pic but it shows the different color of the metal flakes:

Been a while since my last post, been busy with work and the holidays. When I do have time I like to little details to the car, which consists of figuring out how to switch everything to AN fittings.....which is a pain in the ass to me. BUT slowly, I am gathering the info to do this.

I also am lucky to have XS Power Batteries support this build. Awesome guys, and company is right down in Knoxville, TN. Sealed, non-spillable battery FTW! I have yet to properly install the battery, but have decided to keep the battery in the engine bay and not the hatch. I am also sporting their battery hold down to replace the cheap plastic crap the STi comes with. Extra bling in the bay doesn't kill.

Super fast shipping to, from their location to Boston. I received in 2 days.





Will revise this post once I fit everything it.
