Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

lolz! I was trying to get it after they took it off the building but the owner of the Cadi stealership was keeping it so he could sell it at a later time.

Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

Traded my 17x8 +48 custom powder coated Rota Boost wheels for some 2004 STi BBS wheels. It was a straight trade and the wheels are good great shape! No curb rash at all. The only thing is they are rattle canned black to cover up the white paint they once where which was done to change the color from the original GOLD color. It should be a sin to spray over gold BBS's...especially 04's. Pics to come.

Oh I also installed a Cobb light weight crank pulley.

Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

Grimmspeed Gold is a pretty good color match. It's expensive spray paint though... If you want them back to gold, just pay the extra money and get them powder coated. White would look good on your car though. That color is probably the only color I like white wheels on.

I think that im going to have them powder coated but im on the fence about what color. I have something in mind but i have to see how it looks on a wedge first. I like white but these wheels are a PITA to clean in the first place so white ones would be a nightmare...even though they would look nice!

Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

Dude... if there is three layers of paint on those BBS wheels, please sandblast them before you do anything!

+1 on people painting goldies... there is a special layer of hell for them!

There isnt any curb rash on them at all but the black is chipping off. The tires will be pulled off soon and the wheels taken to the powder coater.

Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

I honestly dont know why I update this thing bc hardly anyone makes comments anymore  sadbanana. But whatever!

So a week or so ago my sunroof was leaking down my b pillar and getting my passenger seat belt wet. I dropped the headliner and found that the passenger forward drain tube was kinked where it goes into the a pillar and the water was backing up into the sunroof and then running down the b pillar. I fixed it by cutting the bad area out and putting a plastic hose coupler there. Now it will never kink again. I did it to the drivers side one as well while I was at it.

While the headliner was down I went ahead and took my roof rack off and sent them off to get powder coated crinkle black to match the cross bars. I also sent the headliner and sunroof slide off to an upholstery shop and had the hole fixed from the PO and then recovered in grey micro suede. It came back on Friday and it looks awesome. Im just waiting on the cross bars to get back.

Today I went to the Subaru dealership and had the tires dismounted off my STi wheels in preparation to get powder coated and put on the VW "Take 5" wheels. The VW wheels rub a little because they are +35 offset. I also put on my Cobb rear swaybar that I got for Christmas.

In order to get comments you need to do an ej207 with full STi drivetrain swap. We have high standards and don't just give praise for mediocrity.

Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

Maybe someone has had this problem.

Problem: Fog lights no longer work.
-The switch still lights up and you can hear the relay click when its pressed.
-Checked all the fuses and the relay by swapping with the other relays and still no worky.
-I got them to come on randomly a while back but shortly after they just turned off...so i know my ballasts and bulbs are good.
-I bought a new switch the other week and put that in as it was the last thing that there is and it didnt work either.  facepalm banghead

Im confused  alot
PLEASE HELP



On a side note, I installed this little diddy yesterday! I love it where its at...there is still plenty of air that comes out from around it.

facepalm You can't use excuses... you really have to up your game.

Just max out your credit card and spend money you don't have to try and impress people on the internet that you don't know.


Then you'll get comments...  alot

Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

Today was a good day as I was able to roll my rear fenders. I was rubbing with the VW "Take 5" wheels that i am running now b/c my STi wheels are going to be getting powder coated. I also pulled the fenders ever so slightly (5ish mm) in the process and they look amazing. I didnt even have any cracks in the paint so that is a very big plus. up

Hopefully my roof rack bars will be back to me tomorrow from the powder coated so I can put them and my headliner back in and focus on my brakes next.

Re: Ver7 swapped Desert Silver Aero

So I installed a little something something today that I think you all may like! Ill get pics of it soon. My dang roof rack bars are still not back from the powder coater. Im going to vinyl wrap my roof in black soon. I am waiting for this front to come down through here so all this pollen will stop. It is Jan and there is mosquitoes and pollen every where! I am starting to stock up on part for my EJ207 as well as a few projects that I have up my sleeve  tongue.
