    I love the way that rex looks I have the same black and silver look with my 04wrx but I really need to get some STi splitters and the front lip. And it sits really nice too, are they coilovers or springs?

    The debadge looks very nice and clean.

    Was it hard to get the letters and badges off?
    I've thought about debadging, but I wasn't sure if it would leave a mark.

    It wasn't hard, just time consuming. Don't rush it and you wont damage the clearcoat, take your time and use heat. Took me a few hours or more for the trunk.

    The paint on this car is amazing for being a 5 year old Subaru, I am so damn lucky.

    A couple new pics to post. I got rid of the black STI hood scoop, put a new SrS Turbo Back on it, cleaned it up a little. All that is left it to get rid of that A-Pillar gaugepod.
