    soo recently, changed oil at 95,627 miles :/ , put black plastic trays back under the car.

    didnt really plan on buying much for a while..but found a hood, front bumper cover, headlights for sale so i bought them

    installed it all last night. my hood had a few dings so i didnt like that and this hood the paint is great with no dents. put my sti scoop on it, go to bolt it down and 1 bolt hole is stripped on each side FFFFFFUUUUU. so have 1/2 bolts on each side holding teh hood on the mounts.. it locks down just is on a little crooked and sticks up near the drivers side headlight. so today after work ill be tapping out and making the hole one size bigger, rethread and should be fine. if not or something goes wrong ill just put my old hood back on.

    front bumper was a PITA to get off. i absolutely hate the small black plastic clips that are used everywhere on that car. like 5 or so on the front under grill holding it on which are fine but then theres two upside down in the little brake air ducts, 2 holding the fender to the bumper. just a PITA. rather change oil, trans, and shocks then take a front bumper cover off lol. so get it off finally after pulling black pop pins out from everywhere and doing some tugging. Put the new one on. realize both the mounts where the corner of the fender and bumper meet (like on the side f the grill) mouints are broken. FFFFFFUUUUUU. but holds on fine and made it easier so i dont care much. put the black plastic pins that werent all broken back in in some spots and called it a day with that. went to put fogs back in and looked in and saw i had no bolt holes in the new bumpers but 3 broken studs in each bracket..wish i noticed that before i put the bumper on. but just popped the brackets off my old bumper, pushed the new ones off and had to reach behind the plastic wheel mud guard and then pushed em in. wasnt that bad. so fogs are on shes fine, pretty, not going anywhere...hopefully.

    The headlights i bought because i was going to buy new ones anyway and paint the insides black. So for the price of these ones that were already painted inside with bulbs i decided to give that a shot rather than buy stock ones for the same price without bulbs. so the seller said they were just hazy on the outside. alright not a problem. no way of telling if hazy inside unless outside is clean. so i bought the mcguiers headliught restore kit and worked awesome on the outside.. they are a little hazy on the inside and the one has a big finger print smear across the inside from when he put them back together.. sooo cant tell unless looking close up. may resell them but most likely just take apart and clean off the insides in the spring. but taking the headlights off the car was simple. 3 bolts, 2 wire connector clips. simple. wanted to add my eyelids off my stock lights on there but that 3M double sided tape is doing a great job at being stuck on the stock headlights sooo. not quite to sure of how ill get them off. hairdryer and some pulling another day.

    so of coure everything that can go wrong kinda did, but i expect that everytime i do something to my car so at this point i dont care much anymore lol.

    also she will be making the journey down to participate in the second DFH meat tomorrow





    before cleaning the outside..forgot to take an after pic fml

    Nice work man! I never even considered buying a new hood. The paint on mine is terrible and that would probably cost less than a re-spray.

    yea thats why i did it. had a bunch of dings from PO slamming it down with their fingers. the front bumper was scraped up on the sides too. the new ones are in much better condition, they were just resprayed. now only if the stupid hood wasnt stripped. like 2/4 bolt holes are stripped fml. now just need to fix the hood, get a rear bumper cover, passenger fender and new trunk and she'll be lookin clean. but for the price of a respray and body work its way cheaper to buy nice condition used and i can sell my other parts to make some $ back

    so got my headunit working correctly, installed two more hellas in front and "recycled" an old grill yesterday..

    headunit with lights on, button colors are changeable, made em green to match the rest of the interior colors.


    with cameraflash on


    one thing i like is u can turn the screen off so its not so bright driving in the dark but still have the music on. pretty easy to use headunit, adjust equalizer some preset modes, video backgrounds, add pics for backgrounds yada yada.


    so i had this old grill laying around and it had black mesh behind it. wanted my grill badgeless. stock grill needs cutting to fit hellas, and didnt feel like cutting the grill to fit two more sooo figured id use this. see how the aftermarket grill curves the opposite way of stock grill? well easy fix, flip black mesh upside down woot.


    soo clearly its not a perfect fit or really fit at all. bent it to curve with the front bumper and got out some heavy duty JDM yolo zipties and tied it to each hella cage "perfect fit" lol


    me gusta


    the ones i had on before were silver. new are white. yes they will be painted. no i dont care that they match. too cold to paint out. they honk and are really loud so im content.


    a little too dark out this morning so ill try to get a better pic when i go to my other office at 9
