I like it. More durable, and it makes those battle scars show a lil more.

Got a Ebay Catback that I might install today. I can't decide if I want to
leave it polished, or take it to my powder coater. Either coat it black or
a bright color like Lime Green, or something Florescent.

I also have new Rotors and pads for all 4 corners on the way, and a 3/8"
Aluminum Skid Plate to replace the Factory plastic unit up front.

Am thinking about putting these on the Impreza

The Geolandar A/T-S is Yokohama's On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tire developed for jeep, pickup truck and SUV drivers who want tires that combine a bold off-road attitude with a capable on-road aptitude. Geolandar A/T-S tires are designed to deliver long mileage and promote even wear while providing year-round traction, even in snow.

They are about an inch taller than what I have now, just wondering if they will rub?? I may also order a set of lift plates from primative performance,
raise it up maybe an inch. Or put spring rubbers in to stiffen the factory springs.

What do you think??

I work at discount tire and personally dont like the geolander. Dont choose it based off price. I would recommend either goodyear wranglers (there is a wide variety so you can choose which will best suit the driving habit for this vehicle) or bf Goodrich all terrain. Much better tires and will be much better if you are looking for all terrain. Not sure if the bfg is made in a size you are looking at.

For trail tires, I personally love the nitto trail graplers. Plus they look sick af.

I painted the hood a little differently.....

I like it more, and it has metallic in it so
it sparkles in the sunlight



There is a guy that keeps trying to get me to trade the Impreza for
a 97' Miata with a hardtop and a bunch of mods.

So had to the do the front brakes today, no upgrades there but I did put new pads and rotors on.
I cleaned up alot in the wheel wells and painted some. I also painted the wheel black to see how
it looks and decide how much I like it....





Likes? Dislikes?

it so i tried but it is just to windy today. Maybe monday
after work I can try to spray it..
Before

After

My 10yr old Craftsman rechargable drill wasn't cooperating so I did it by hand..
I need to stop using my phone to take pics they just don't look very good.
They are much more clear to the eye thanin the pics...

ok I am in the process of doing the Rustoleum $100 paint on the Impreza.
Couple shots are of the raw paint no wet sand, and the after a 320 grit wet sand.
This is after the 320 grit wet sand.


No Sanding just the paint rolled on


On the trunk I clear coated part of it to see if I want to do the whole car



Alot more sanding to be done, and I thnk the paint needs to be tinneda little more...

Better???

Sprayed the lower doors with undercoating this morning. Contemplating spraying the whole car with the
Undercoat and then painting it. What do you think??

I think it is looking better. A couple more coats and it should be done.
When I sprayed on the undercoat sound dampening stuff it must not
have been even. That is why getting the paint even is a bit hard.

Took these pics with an actual camera.
