Paint Job
So I started the process of doing a full paint job on my car last night. I have it almost completely stripped down and am going to start doing the little body work and sanding the car down today.

I was thinking about painting a ghost/flat blue (maybe yellow if it was side logos) logo on either the side of the car or the hood. of maybe subaru rally team or the classic subaru side decals like travis pastranas rally car. Im keeping the car WRB but can't decide whether to put some logo's on

Just thought I would see what people think.

I currently have a 07 impreza wagon getting a full flat black paint job and its also getting 17in black enkei's put on it. That is in the paint booth right now so it will be done soon and ill post up a few pics.

Ive never been a fan of decals on cars, I think a car w/o them looks so much cleaner and better. But, thats just my personal taste, if you like the logo's go for it! As long as you are liking them, thats really all that matters.

yeah decals arent really my cup of tea either but if it were mine id still want a big yellow subaru emblem on the trunk lol
you need to represent! :)

Personally, I like smaller decals, not so much the huge ones that cover the entire side of your car. For example, "SUBARU" written on the hood in yellow, right above the grill... !Thumbs Up

Probably on the back too. Then maybe small logos on the sides.

But obviously, it's up to you. Still though, the way I see it, you're going to be seen in it, and everybody needs a good rep, so don't do anything way too drastic.

Whatever you decide to do, I'm excited to see the outcome !Thumbs Up

Personally, I like the small stickers on the side skirt or behind the front wheel. But if you like it, that is all that matters. Good luck!

/sarcasam Just add Big Yellow STI decals down each side. Each one adds 10 hp. lol.

02WRXbugeye 01-25-2010 11:29 PM

LOL i need that 10HP! jk. I decided to just go WRB and get the cleaner look. Ill post pics of it when its done. Currently in primer. Ill post some pics of the flat black wagon too. I keep forgetting too.

Here are some pics of the flat black wagon. Its a little dusty in spots but still looks pretty sweet.

I've decided that when car goes in for a full respray i'm gonna go with satin black. Thats a good looking wagon. Good Job

Thanks man, Nobody at the shop was excited to do it because we didn't think it would look good but we are pretty happy with it.

pearlwhite10 01-26-2010 10:23 PM

Man I dig that car. Well done! I'm excited to see the other one

02WRXbugeye 01-26-2010 10:40 PM

thanks! I have my subi in primer right now. Just wet sanded the whole thing tonight and am hopefully going to paint it tomorrow or thursday. The pictures of my car don't show how bad of shape the paint was actually in and how bad of body work was done on the car by the people that last painted it. Im really excited to see it too:)
