Lexan windows showed up.



And trunk...seems to be a waste of money, as it is quite heavy. Has me extremely skeptical about the front fenders, since stockers are surprisingly light. So, if it weren't for the +10mm, i would not have done them.

Nice... it still is a beautiful car. I have never fully understood why diesel is not more widely accepted and sought after in family cars in the US..
Prior to the VW scandal, I would have agreed. People don't seem to understand that torque is far more important in a daily driver.

Post VW scandal, I think it's firmly cemented in people's minds that diesels are dirty.... :(

I got samples of a variety of the "grays"... One of them was anthracite. Gorgeous color/wrap just not what I was going for. Will definitely look good on an S2k

Making progress... Slowly but surely.





Shaved the license plate bracket... Something I've wanted to do since day one but couldn't justify the cost (paint, etc).

Stripped to take it to the body shop













And then they kinda stopped sending me pics but we did delete the antenna, so it's a smooth roof

Found out Seibon doesn't actually make +10mm fenders, and it is basically false advertising. So, given how heavy they are and how poorly they fit, they have to be the biggest waste of money to date.

Damn, you gonna contact them about it? Ii'd be like excuse me take this shit back.
I did...i thought maybe they sent the wrong parts. Their response is that they're "+10mm for an '08-10 WRX or factory width for STi/11-14 wrx". Which is funny because they advertise them not fitting the narrow body wrx......
