Cursed the sh*t out of it as I spent 15 minutes on all fours in a parking lot in the blazing sun trying to fish out the key I dropped between the drivers seat and console. Large hands were never meant to do this. I do love the car tho.

I got mine off without ripping it..... but ripped it on the way back on. Hahaha

A little off-topic, but as stupid as this will sound, would your headlights have any sort of DOT-approved markings on them, assuming they're JDM?

I've been browsing the forums for a clear answer as to whether or not the JDM units have DOT markings, and although I would figure that the units are not DOT approved, I'm also conflicted by the fact that I'm seeing DOT-approved stuff on Croooober (Online arm of Japanese auto store Up Garage).

Nice car by the way!

Mine are European GT86 headlights for LHD cars. Where should I look for such marking?

Apparently the EUDM units don't have such markings, so I don't think you'll need to look.

I've read different answers: that they would be on the lenses, that they would be behind the lamps; etc. I won't really know for certain unless I check out a pair for myself. Thanks anyway!

Put the stock muffler back on after two days of the nameless 5 inch muffler doing nothing but droning.

its not Nameless' fault

the gruppe S header and overpipe are so loud its hard to get them silent on a single tip muffler system.. had i have money maybe ill buy one of those single tips that exits on the passenger side and weld in a vibrant muffler and see if that does better. for now both my nameless tips are for sale

Took a day and gave the car a cosmetic one over.

Decontaminated, a polish then followed up with a ceramic coating.

Turned out great, the finish should improve over the next 48 hours as it cures.

I picked mine up from the smash repairers. Good as new, and all the bugs on the front gone. New bumper, new radiator, resprayed bonnet. Most all the stone chips are now gone, except for the one on the boot.

Only downside is they sprayed some seriously smelly stuff inside when detailing it. it reeks!

Got my front RR street bbk installed. This kit uses wilwood calipers and i used centric blank 2004 sti rotors. Went yellow rather then the typical red and I think yellow pairs well with a silver car. The pedal feel is much better than stock. Can't wait to get these on the track or autocross to test the differences.

Don't mind my dirty wheels the car needs a wash badly

If i didnt snag a set of used AP racing calipers. these are the guys I woulda went with.l... I probably woulda gone like grabber blue or something against my white

but yellow and silver has its own sway
I dig it

Not bad for a beginner. When you get some more experience though you will get something more like this masterpiece:



I hate seeing Lovebugs squished into my paint but I also love it because it's just one more that is dead.

Painted my key a second time cause the paint peeled off from the first round of pimpage. Used an Initial D decal cause I ran out of the little 86 tabs
