So I just got my final refinish estimate in the mail today. To refinish the hood,trunk/wing and lip kit plus fix a small dent in my pass. quarter panel, $3400. the cheapest estimate I got was $2000.
Man, I'm glad I have the know how to do it myself. Might take me a bit to get to the buffer, but Oh well.

Not too worried about blending either, considering that someday, Ill have the entire car redone. So for now I'm ecstatic with the job I have done so far(with the help of my wife). And that with paint, paper and putty, I'm MAYYYYBE, $200 in the hole.

I'll keep you guys posted, and add pics as this progresses.

And I will be spraying the lip on my wheels blaze yellow as well.

Still gotta black out the grills and add some under the hood shots.
but she's comin' along!!!

A good wet sand and buff still has to happen as well. Than at some point I will pull the wing and lip kit back off to RE-Spray. I'm not 100% with the results because on the wing and rear lip I was too anxious and sprayed my base right over my primer before a good prepping happened.
But from 10 feet away its a tubular job

Like the monster hood scoop was that on that hood or did you find it aftermarket. I have seen the generic cf ones online but they don't have the aero lines that the sti ones have. There is a guy in tulsa with one and it just looks silly.

Ps car looks good, I'm no paint and body guy but I have a nice hook up, my cousin is a hell of a body guy. So if and when the day comes he is already drooling to block it up and respray it.

There going in my never ending pile of wrx crap I've been building. There shit man, you dont want them. They came out of a flood car and both have small chips in the lens' and the driver side has mud in it/ the passenger side held 3 inches of water until I drilled an1/8 inch hole in it. If they were any good I would offer them to ya, but like I said....there sh*t.

Kevin, your box is shipping tomorrow man, sorry for the delay
