Build Journal for Koigataki (6MT Argento FR-S)

I've already done a couple of modifications, I guess I should back track and make a list.

This is where I start becoming out of order on my mod list.

http://seiboncarbon.com/store/produc...ubaru-brz.html

Purchased and mounted TS-Style Carbon Fiber Hood. Not major fitment issues and all body lines matched up. The carbon hood weighs almost the same as the stock hood, allowing me to continue using my GReddy hood dampers.

Swapped my side marker lights to JDM clear lens and rewired them to function as turn signals. Also had Falken RT-5 and Yokohama Advan S.4 installed.

Installed GReddy Momentum intake. I love the way it sounds when you give it a little ass on the gas.

I started this project looooong ago, but I haven't decided on exactly how I want to finish it. I removed the third brake light from the rear deck and modified the trunk garnish. It lights up at night but not as bright as I would like/need to be legal. Also I'm waiting on a few more pay checks so I can purchase a carbon fiber trunk with the built in "spoiler" lip. So until then it will remain as a half-assed job.

By far my most hated modification...Someone chipped the paint in the driver rear fender when they egged my car in the winter.

And now this brings us up to speed on the modifications that I can currently think about.

Currently I'm working on a custom subwoofer box for an Alpine 10" Type-R that will be placed in the driver rear seat well. I tried to place the huge amp I have behind the driver seat but it wasn't enough room so I placed it behind the passenger. Getting in and out feels a little cramped but once you are inside you have plenty of room (opinion of a 6' +200lb male). In the photo I only have the area masked out with tape and aluminum foil.

After talking to Moshpit I decided to try to refabric the rear deck. This is only a temp install with tape holding the fabric in place.
