    That is crazy! Did you paint it yourself? How many cases of Krylon did it take?! And why is it flat black?

    I like it a lot! Very creative.

    the paint used was a MATT black, and clear coat was mixed in with the paint. We painted the car professionally. Like i said, that picture is kinda bad but others i have are better.

    I think its unique! I havent seen any WRX, STI, or even a sports car like this with a flat black. Only things ive seen like this are old roadsters and such. Thought it would be kinda neat

    Getting STI fog light covers, splitters, Spoiler and such very soon.

    + i am planning on power coating my rims flat black as well.

    Any ideas to improve it from other personal point of views?

    wasn't there a flat black sti on the cover of sport compact car a while back?

    While it's not something I would do, I think it looks pretty good.

    sport compact car did paint a car flat black in an issue a few years ago.

    Im not a big fan of it, but it looks professionally done.
