I <3 the wing muchly. Makes such a difference to the car.

Skirts and rear spats weren't my first choice, but finding any of the after market stuff is next to impossible lol.

i hate black wheels, but if that's the "look" you want to go after, sure...why the fuck not.

but my gut says, "absolutely do not fucking do that"

Yeh no longer going for the black wheels. Going to get the centers done a really glossy silver with some flake, and the lips polished.

New grill arrived, painted and fitted the next day:

So swapped it onto some winter wheels, 17x8 Dotz Mugellos, repainted in Takata green because I like it. Having a few issues with the brakes, so it'll be getting a new caliper and pads up front and maybe on the back aswell. Then full service, tints and coilovers.

Possibly getting a set of wide arches for it also. Either OEM ones (about 10mm wider) or Meiwa Elford ones (40mm wider)

STI kit is nearly fitted as well, needs bonded on in places to straighten it up as it isn't a perfect fit for the UK S turbo bumper.s

Oh and my bonnet latch is broke, hence the bonnet sitting up a bit.

She basically lives in there. :kitty:

So bit of a wordy update, because I'm lazy. So phuck you if you wanted pictures.

Getting a few fancy bits in from Japan at some stage this week, mainly a set of Cusco coilovers, 10mm arch extensions and TommyKaira carbon fibre interior trim (dash surround + door cards)

The Viennas are away to a local Polish guy that specialises in Polishing wheels, so the lips are going full polished and faces painted. Should be ready for collection this week.

Aiming to hit a car show on the 30th of this month, so hopefully I'll have the coils, arches and wheels refitted by then.

I'm all about the sideskirts and the 10mm arches. Had a red one with a rediculous front mount mess with me on the highway this past weekend.

Let's just say, I phorgot how much torque those things make.

Buddy of mine made rediculous torque numbers a few years ago on a mostly stock Phorester. COBB accessport, turboback straight pipe, and a STI intercooler. 400+ ft/lbs and decent hp numbers.

Cheers. Yeh it is quite the sleeper car as long as people don hear it haha, which may be a problem as I'm considering upgrading the exhaust to a 3 inch Blitz Nur Spec R system to replace the Prodrive 2.5" system and decating it as well at the same time...

Wheels back from Refurbing. Full polished lip and faces painted white.

Also painted up the fender mirror again as well as the skirts and grill. Starting to sort the lips/spats meow.

So did something stupidly simple that I should have done a long time ago.

My headlight washers were not working, so I had removed them a while ago. Leaving two holes. I intended to drop the bumper off and have them filled...but I decided to make a quick fix today.

Two bits of plasticard painted and clear coated the same as the bumper and it looks far better. Not perfect and will still be getting it filled at some stage, but much better than two holes. Just need buffed and the bonder cleaned up around them...

Fender mirror reminds me of a hood mounted tach rather than a mirror. Can you get rid of the door mounted one?

Not really any progress on this, just waiting on parts and what not.

Repainted the green Dotz wheels something a bit more subtle and normal. Not sure If I'll keep them as winters or sell them on.

Phorester is looking great.

The white wheels really compliments the rest of the wagon. Nice choice!

Is the fender mirror for a future side view mirror delete? Or, simply to protect your blind spot?

Other sorta updates. Roof racks arrived today. Test fitted them, will probably end up shortening them and then spraying them gloss black. After that next thing will be a nice Gloss black roof rack, mainly to shove all the crap I keep in my backseats into so people can actually fit in the back.

Then should be getting a set of tints.

Another thing is I may be buying another forester...to turn into a trailer/camp thing.
