Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

Don't mind the salt, we had a little snow, with a lot of salt and I drove through a touch less wash to remove the salt, and to clean the undercarriage.

Some of the cuts made:

I'll try to grab a few in the coming days. Whiteline endlinks on the way!

Gotta see how these work out. Picked up some new clear and sprayed them again. Wet sanding tomorrow to a crystal clear. :)

Re: Matt_H's 2008 DGM STI

are u running stock turbo on your turboxs fmic set up? what did you make?

Thomas
I have not yet retuned after the fmic, I will probably get a retune very soon.

What battery are you gonna choose to replace the current one?
I replaced it about a month ago. I got a Duralast (Autozone brand) and it's been great so far. I think there was 200-250 more ccas'.

Got WL endlinks on the car as well, also picked up a set of tires to put on the wheels that will be here next week.

Also got the TurboXS catback on it. :)

Tails look good, Matt.

How did you get the old paint off? Paint stripper? If so, did it affect the plastic?

What did you use to redo them? Metalcast red?

Thanks!
I sanded the red/clear off with 600/1000. Removing the paint was a pain in the ***.
Repainted them with Metalcast then used a PPG clear shot out of a real paint gun. Then wet sanded with 600, 1000, 1500 and then 2000. I'll have to get updated pictures up, it looks much better.

I also painted some interior pieces today, so I'll try to get pictures of that up soon as well.

What wheels you get bro?
I'll post a picture in a few days. :)

Daytime picture. The 'smudges' is from where I wiped it clean and it didn't dry yet.
