Re: Deek's 08 STi - warranty rebuild, and then some

That dry carbon wrap got me very interested. How much did a sheet cost you and how long is "forever"? :lol: I'd love to do my wing with it. That shit looks amazing! :tup:

Re: Deek's 08 STi - warranty rebuild, and then some

I bought an 18 ft roll (52" wide I think) directly from Hexis USA for somewhere around $300 and have plenty left. I have an account with them if you want me to get you a roll. I think they sell it by the yard now, I'd have to check.. You want alligator skin texture? Can do! :lol: I've only ordered from them once but they're very accommodating and helpful.

I'm a very OCD/anal person, I took off the rain gutter strips, spoiler and antenna to make it clean. It took my friend (moomoowater) and I roughly 4 hours. I could probably do it quicker now that I'm a bit more familiar with the process... then again maybe not, cause my OCD will never dissipate. ;)

Hmm, now that I think about it, a WRB STi with an alligator skin texture wing would look pretty damn good. Just think of all the :eek: looks I would get. :lol:

With that wrap, can you pretty much wrap anything with it?

You're only limited by your imagination I suppose.

Yeah there's lots of creative colors and patterns available. Plans for exterior in the future are simple; matte white pearl.

Re: Deek's 08 STi - THE NOISE... HELLA-MEATY: SSR Type-F & 275/40

Thanks! :)

I made an appointment with a semi-local 'fender rolling celebrity' (AWDalbert) to make more room for the 275's. I rubbed a little today while accelerating pretty hard through an intersection to avoid getting my rear end remodeled by some idiot driving under the influence of her phone. There was a dip in the intersection and when I went through it, I heard it rub. Didn't notice any damage to the tire though, phew!

Going to see him tomorrow after work to get this sorted out. I'm a pretty picky individual but he's got lots of vouches, I'll post up with my experience after all is said and done.

Re: riDEEKulous STi - #HELLAMEATY | SSR / FP Black / AquaMist / Maddad / etc.

AWDalbert (link in previous post) did his thing, no more rubbing under any driving condition and even have room to reduce rear camber to -1.4 or maybe even more.

More things on order, updated first post. Still not divulging too many details, but I think it paints a pretty understandable picture. ;)
