FInally got the interior back together.


Added the re-amemia carbon fiber door sills, restained the factory carpet, 13b1 aluminum door cups, carbon fiber hood cover, sakebomb footrest


First time out in a few months


Previous owner had rattle canned the engine bay flat back and it was all chipped and looked like ****.


Used some goo-off and removed the spray paint but the factory paint was all dicked up, tried to touch it up to no avail, ended up masking the bay off and re-spraying the front part of the bay, came out pretty good.



While I was in there added the KTS front strut bar, Supernow strut top plates and powersteering cap, swapped the yellow Greddy intake filters to blue. Trimmed the LRB rad panel around the Vmount and sprayed it to match and finished off the engine bay rice with some blue anodized DressUp bolts.








All thats left is to take it to my buddys shop, redo the seat brackets so I fit in the thing lol, double-check the alignment, install the Bonzai diff brace and its done in my eyes. It will be 2 years in November since I bought the car, I've driven it maybe 30 miles total since then so all thats left is to enjoy it and actually drive it, while the FC goes into the garage for suspension and paint.

Thank you, just removed the front triangle trim at the front of the molding and then the back trim on the inside that covers up the 2 bolts that hold the door handle on, took those off so the exterior handle has play and that gave it enough room to tug the molding out. Also the new trims come with all the clips already on it, i made the mistake of ordering some of the clips too, so if you order them new oem then you dont need anything else they come ready to be installed.

Ah gotcha. This sounds like the door molding. My windshield molding needs some loving.

EJ20 swap from 04 wrx with basic bolt ons, STI interior, STI brakes, ST coilovers. Nothing fancy.

Will probably sell mine sometime late next spring, early summer, I'll let you know, would rather do a deal with someone local especially if they want it modded.
