Thanks, that's what I figured. I did a grill badge before, I'm just lazy

Yeah i am now thinking im gonna either do a Red or Black powder coat on some new rims. The emblems were my own doing. You cant find them onling so i took off the emblems and used cleaner to remove the stock paint, then used model paint to color them.

Just an idea. Since you are going to powedercoat them you could... paint the driver side wheels black and the passange wheels red and see with you like better.

Correct, you can't find the custom-painted badges online. However, you can find stock replacement front and rear oval star badges online in case you mess yours up - ask me how I know SubaruGenuineParts.com sells those as well as front oval "I" badges.

I've always loved that white wagon with red rims, there is another white 06 wagon with orange wheels online, both cars had a photo shoot together (not sure if I have the pic on here). The one with orange rims is my ipad background

To the OP, clean wagon. The moment I saw it, I was thinking blood red, those 5 spoke red rims would look amazing IMO.
