Have to say you've done a brilliant job with those wheels. The deep bronze looks so much better on that car than the black.

Thank you. I'm really pleased how they came out.

I'm going to copy your bronze wing badges
Did you paint them yourself ? How did you keep the red "sti" bit ?

Haha. Now that would be telling!

I tried masking the red and spraying the bronze over but just couldn't get it masked effectively so I ended up spraying the whole things bronze and then painstakingly re-painting the red logo by hand a few times until I had them just right.

Thought so

Tried similar before and ended up doing it that way.

Ah good job. I know what it's like, I barely have the time for one project let alone 2. My classic 63 beetle desperately needs some time and the engine out for a quick rebuild before this season plus I have loads of new parts for it that I've had knocking around for some time now. I'm just having to ignore the beetle until the Subaru is done.

So not a lot has happened on the car in recent months unfortunately. I had planned to get all the parts fitted in May and get it mapped etc, but family and other issues means it didn't work out that way. No bother as I'm still driving it daily and loving every minute of it.

The only thing I've done recently is clean up all the intercooler pipework after their powder coating exercise and re-finish all the end etc. I also removed the rear lights again and changed the overlays to a slightly darker shade.



I also purchased some new front and rear badges to replace the standard ones which finally arrived yesterday after waiting a month. So have these to fit tonight.



I went to see Rich @ FB Tuning at the beginning of May to see if he could fit me in at any point to get my parts fitted, but he's taken on a few large builds now and doesn't have a full week available until much later on in the year. So it's definitely going to be a toss up now between TDR and SC.

Originals look better. Personal opinion.

I didn't mind the original ones, but they were the only 2 bits of chrome on the car and stood out like a saw thumb. Still have them if I change my mind later.
