06/07 taillights and painted Calipers on 02 WRX

As the title states i painted my Calipers as i like the color Green, and also since i am not to fond of the OEM tail lights on the 02/03's i bought a set of Hawkeye tail lights for cheap. I can say i will never paint Calipers while they are still on the car that was a PITA. But the lights were easy to install.....Next little change that i hope to do is change my Dash Lights to LED's and go Green also.I will update with another Pic of the car with the Rims on.

My screen makes the paint look "mint" color. Looking good!

Those are nice eye pleasing upgrades.
Cheers to that!

I like those calipers, they definitely add a little extra to the car. I want to paint mine red, what did you use to mask them just some tape?

Cosmo_kraemer 12-22-2013 10:19 AM

plain masking tape will work,. I didnt mask mine off as it came with a brush, wish i did tho i got a little paint on the pads. bt the kit also came with a brake cleaner spray. the suckie part was waiting 24 hours to drive the car again for the paint to cure. and thanks they are nice little upgrades. Now like i said i will be looking for some Green LED's for my dash since like i said i luv green, also wear it when on the ship lol. but also im on the look out for an STI Wing and also i want a bigger Scoop. I thought about getting the 04-07 WRX scoop as it not as big as the STI ones.

Check out jdm bugeye scoops.
I think those are super nice. Or an 04-05 scoop that is made to fit you

Very Nice and i have seen those covers before i watch alot of Mighty Car Mods on youtube, Those Aussie Guys are funny as hell. and they used those on a straight up Poser Ricer Civic build. if im putting Brembo's on they will be the real deal. Just sucks the STI ones are cheaper then new ones but still are an Arm and a Leg used. But if i went Camo i would want to try and do the NWU(Navy Working Uniform) Camo. Blue Digital Pattern.

BLAZE2099 12-22-2013 07:20 PM

That'd be super different. And tits on a wrb!

BoostinChick 12-22-2013 07:23 PM

Tried digi-camo on the calipers and it didn't look right. Looks good on a turbo compressor, though (another project)!

..and it's funny that I can pick up Evo IX F/R calipers all day for $600. Not sure why Subaru folks charge so much more. And LPC in PA does all my work.

BTW, this is vehicle the calipers in my previous post are from -

Yeah the cheapest i have found i think was 850 for a set of Brembo's off a STI. most i see are 1200, but i really think alot of people are just greedy, and think since they are Brembo i can get top dollar.Just like the BBS Rims, i would luv a set for my Bugeye but 800 plus is not worth it for second hand rims that have curb rash or Gold. Yes i dont like the Gold Rims i know its Sacrilege.
