02 bugeye
 
What's goin on everyone? I have a 02 Subaru WRX sedan wrb.
I'm trying to get a wingless trunk. I was wondering the best way to go abou this?
I know it's hard to trade because everyone wants to go wingless, but there always is a rare occassion. So unless any of you would like to trade I want to know which is better: removing wing, weld holes and repaint or buy a new trunk completely? I know online a freshly painted wingless trunk is $400. So maybe I could sell my trunk for $100 to get it off quick. I was wondering if anyone knows houw much roughly it'd cost to weld holes and repaint? I know prices are different everywherre but I just need an estimate.

I'd rather not spend $400 on a trunk that won't give me any benefits and maybe even decrease downforce but I love the look.

Thank you

I'm in the same boat as you man i wanna go wingless too i have an 02 buggie too.

Codywrx 08-15-2012 08:25 PM

Yeah it sucks. I don't know how to weld and I don't wanna put plugs in alll those holes haha

Dan818 08-15-2012 08:31 PM

I know :(. I saw a guy who had his wingless like three days ago. He let the holes just be there no plugs or welding of any sort so with plugs or plugless it looks like garbage.

It's just rediculous to pay that much for a trunk. This guy with a wingless was trying to trade me but he keeps procrastinating.

@Blaze
I am also a noob to the whole Subaru world where would be a good place to start minor modifying my car after the trunk its all stock except for the rims?

Dan, what are you looking for out of your car in the long run?

I'd gladly pay the $400 for a new trunk. That's really not that bad.

Dan818 08-16-2012 08:21 PM

I mostly just wanna get the subaru sound so exhaust and air intake and thats about it i dont wanna get to crazy since its my everyday car.

Dan818 08-16-2012 08:24 PM

and also a gauge set up

For just sound look into a catback exhaust. Read on here about intakes before you buy one. Not a great first mod. They require a tune.

BLAZE2099 08-16-2012 10:11 PM

Good call on the cat back Kevin, as for the intake. Maybe look up the snorkus delete.

Dan818 08-19-2012 11:08 PM

Whats a good catback that sounds good and wont break the bank
