Search on E-bay for impartsb46 & ask whether they can get the parts you're after. They only sell genuine Subaru parts. I've had stuff from him with no issues. If you're local you can pick up, which is what I usually do.
Update; found a vinyl firm on the fb hatch group who have done a set £30 a pair.

I sorted this out at the weekend, clayed, masked, 1200 grit wet and dry, Menzerna 2500 and 3500, then Maguire's sealant.

Do A pillars with tweeter pods exist for the hatchback?
Alternatively, where can I purchase tweeters in the corners of the front door's windows as shown here? https://images.crutchfieldonline.com...92/tweeter.jpg
I'd like to fit separate tweeters but would like to retain the OEM look.

You should be able to fit after market tweeter in the stock location with a bit of fiddling.

Do UK cars have the door mirror pods and does anyone know the part number for the plastic/grill?
My 20th anniversary doesn't have them.

I recently did mine with Autoglym's headlight restoration kit and they have come up really well.

Yes they exist for the hatch
"speaker assembly - tweeter" 86301FG240

Cover Gusset - RH 94251FG060
Cover Gusset - LH 94251FG070



Like many things JDM the Hatch isn't supplied with a standard head unit. This is picked from a separate listing and fitted at purchase.

As standard, the "20th Anni" model comes with blank gusset plates (94251FG000 and 010), as you have found, and no rear door speakers.

I would assume the door looms have the speaker wiring.

Speaker Assembly - Rear 86301FG140

Thanks Don, as usual fantastic detective work!
The wiring for the rear speakers was present, fortunately!
I wonder why they have deleted the rear speakers!

Hot water or hot air blower (hair dryer does work) and then for the remaining glue try some tar remover.

I have been playing with the idea of making these if someone wants to send me a set to copy?

I can also make in "other colours" rather then just transparent if someone wants to be different.

Robert.

Not just the 20th anni model the SpecC Hatches don't come with tweeters or rear speakers as standard equipment.
