Done

Used this site a bit with NASIOC of course. Finally done, had the car since mile 4, airboy's at 386hp and 380tq. Attempted to get some actual 1/4 times this season, but the car was always down for 1 reason or another. Will get some numbers next season, need to get it going on our enduro course as well. Finished it with about 12000$ in mods suspension/turbo/engine/ bolt ons etc. Custom paint, not much of a sleeper anymore except its a wagon...The color looks much better in person Subaru obsidian black pearl with satin white pearl stripe, rear end, tinted red taillights. Did the tuning, work, wrench turning, and custom paint. Subaru dealership has touched it twice, to do a compression test, which I hate, and to replace the rear glass when I power slid around a corner and it torque broke em out haha, they didn't even ask. Great Guys. But thanks for any info I have absorbed, preview for the picture is just showing flickr link but not gonna drop anymore time into getting it on!

Looks nice.

One question.... Is the white "painted" or wrapped ?

I know you said custom paint, but never hurts to ask.

It's painted, I toyed with the idea of wrapping it, but didn't want the "break line", the way we did the paint there is zero raise at the two tone, plus I wanted a completely new coat of clear anyway. I was very worried it would look too geek squadish, but it actually looks very nice in the sun. The satin white pearl is a very nice color, with the deeper custom look both colors pearl really pops out.

Lol that is the same response I got from everyone when I told them the idea of the "black/white", it is 'borrowed' from the Travis Pastrana special edition "black/yellow" car. But after they saw it finished most everyone really liked it. But yeah, there is no mistaking the car now, so I have to watch how I drive.
