Due to covid-19, have been stuck at home working. Trying not to loose my mind by buy car parts. Plus a lot of things are going to happen this summer... but for now, I'll post what I did last few days.

Huge, but very light package have came.


It's a rear lip! Saw one member had em on the car and got a bit jealous, so bought it lol


Now the biggest issue w this rear lip is, it's made for kouki rear bumper and not zenki rear bumper. Me thinking "Meh, there are very minor difference between Kouki & Zenki, so prob fit with few tweek"
*Photo by trueno86power*


Well let me say this, I was wrong... VERY WRONG. only thing that fit was 2 clips on each side . That's it! Technically there were suppose to be 3 clips each side for zenki, but this lip only have 2 holes each side. From exhaust spot to all the way to the center, nothing fits. It came w like 5~6 screws to screw em on to the bumper, but it wouldn't get near the bumper to screw em on. Even by the reverse light. In the pic, center part looks fit, but the "V" section is too shallow and won't fit plus fake fin design is different as well.


Result is, had to cut em out to make it fit.


This is pre-test fit to see if it work. It fit... but issue still is in the center section. Center section isn't secured at all. It's been 3M double sided tape. When I go more than 25mph, that 3M take will prob pop off, so had to think of alternate option.




Alternate option I came up is to put bolts plus 3M double sided tape to hold em together.


Had to make sure lip would fit tightly to the bumper and bolt came out very close to the reverse light section, so I had to take it off to get the wash and nut tighten.



But as you can see, reverse lights still fit w those bolts.



lip is very close to the bumper.



Now, I wouldn't recommend this to whoever have zenki bumper. If you have kouki bumper and do like the rear lip, recommend it, cuz it looks freaking nice.

Oh, if you're wondering why I taken off the taillights, because I had to take off the bumper and when I put the bumper back, it's best to have the taillights off... is a joke. I have new taillights coming on Monday, so thought to take it off and I just need to install em instead of taking it off and so forth. & yes, I did buy new taillight gasket as well.

Today another package came for me~



Got Depo taillights


Yes, a lot of you are thinking "Bruh, it's a same taillights as stock. Mind as well break stock ones open and paint em black!" or "Why keep em stock design?" There 2 major reason for that.
1. I like the stock design, but doesn't like chrome part. Stock headlights are black, why can't taillights can be black stock.
2. I run Diode Dynamics Tail-as-Turn. If I get other taillights, Tail-as-Turn work work.


I also bought Ninja Gaskets kit as well. Gasket was pretty thick and nice quality. It came w glue and even Laffy Taffy. Those are always plus for gearheads lol

Installation was pretty easy. Nothing complicated, just pop off the taillights, move all the wires and bulbs, put the glue and gaskets, pop em back in and that's it.



You can see before and after pics

I should be getting more packages middle of this week. That'll be a bit more of work, so hopefully I can report back on the weekend or early next week.

Looks good. I’ve been happy with my Depo taillights. Tried to open the stock ones for painting, but failed!

Thanks! I feel like Depo taillights should of been stock taillights.

Yeah... that's what I'm reading and hearing from members who crack the taillights to get it painted. That's why I bought these instead of painting em.

This came on Wednesday


& this came on yesterday


I had several other things I need to install along w these. First box is Cusco Touring-A struts. I was looking into Koni Yellow for SCCA SSC class, but I didnít want to build my car around SSC.


Touring-A was equipped with Eibach Pro-Kit and Verus Engineering top hats.


Hereís how it looks front


Rear... I had to do lil bit more work, cuz I was going to install struts along with Subaru 2 piston calipers w KNS bracket & SPC LCA. So Wednesday it ended with just installing the fronts.

Thursday, going through all the installation without any issues.


Visually this is looking good...


But Iím a retard and Iíve put calipers wrong side. How I didnít think of it til start bleeding them. Iíve noticed that bleeder is on the bottom. So I say fuck it and done for Thursday.

Today, switch the calipers and installed the Viofo A129 Pro Duo. Reason I got dash cam is, recently I got front bumper hit and they just drove off. Sadly I was at Target shopping and didnít notice that paint crack and corner clip snapped til few days later.


A129 is bang for buck. Of course, itís not compact like BlackVue or top quality as Thinkware, but this is def up there. Itís compact enough, that itíll hide behind the mirror too.


Rear cam could be a bit smaller. Especially I have 3rd brake light on the top, so I had to put on the side.


I had to hardwire, so park mode work. Iíll be testing em out tonight to see how it work.

The taillights are a very subtle change but definitely look better than stock. I'm not a chrome fan either, but I don't want to swap lights until I've got a front and rear set that look good together. In your case already having black headlights it's a much easier swap.

After cleaning up the garage from upgrading suspension & calipers, I forgot to install these parts. Iíll be installing Perrin part prob Monday or Tuesday. But first, I need to get alignment done.

I love the depo taillights. I want them pretty bad because I love the stock look but also hate the chrome. I'm not a fan of the turn signals or strange LED design of other aftermarket tail lights.

What is in the Perrin box?!

Isn't finding parts you forgot about great? Kinda like a scavenger hunt you didn't even know you were doing.

I assume it's something suspension related since you mentioned an alignment?
