Plans include new wheels, more low, stretched tyres. -Not going to any extreme with all that, unless temptation gets the better of me.

Front lip is definitely a must; as are roof racks, a roof cage and a rear spoiler.

 

Looking forward to getting to a few meets!

 

Cheers fellas.

Very nice man. What wheels are you planning on replacing these with?


Wanting to buy/looking for: single genuine STi rim, genuine STi front lip, Corazon or Zero/Sports grille and another OEM grille

Can you hook a brother up? Please contact me now. I have cash ready.

Keen to see how it goes though!

Woops, WRX not Sti!

 

 

First post updated with Cam's extensive list of mods.. Can't believe I missed so much! Was in a rush..

 

The wheels are good & their look is very nice, but although practical as they are now, I'd like some lower profile tyres & have thought about the BBS Style LM wheels for a while (The ones Jack put on his silver Gen3)...

 

Not sure about selling them haha; will decide on that after I buy new ones!

 

And the engine is running fine luckily; just gotta find an oil leak.. It went down quick! Hopefully it'll be good from there.

finished off the ftont end very nicely this does. and its plastic not fiberglass is another win


Have you put any more thought into squeezing some more power out of the engine. Like strapping on one of those intake fans

Very nice!

I know, so far over due haha :/

 

That sounds like a fantastic idea!

 

BUT, only if it's poly urethane; I don't want to buy the hard, brittle plastic for that price... Don't worry, says "PU Plastic" in the description, so as long as we get a written confirmation from the seller beforehand, I'm in :) -I'm just getting my tax return in the next couple days so that'll be niiiace!

Do the genuine lips have screw points or any of the like? The description says it comes with double sided tape, will that suffice!? I've had bad experiences with things only held on with double sided tape -namely the B4 rear splitters you sold me ages ago, Chris :(

 

I also think I need side skirts to properly match the lip, do you have em chris? And the rear pods are tempting also!


Looks awesome mate....I like the height it's at now personally. Awesome job man.

I'm afraid that credit must go to Cam!
