Paint, Steering, Gas

I’ve made some progress in the last couple weeks. I spent many hours sanding, masking, and then painting the car in my driveway. And then sanding masking and painting more. The color is called Light Aqua, from TCP Global. I am really pleased with the color. I did see the car used to be orange, white, red, and green all at various stages in its life. 068EF62B-5483-459E-93FA-B254B681A5E4.jpegCF971655-4646-4AF1-B904-F794F9A9C379.jpeg

I also received my Kooglewerks front air dam and tow hook/bumper delete/fog cover, and installed Hella 500FF lights. It took a while to get the wiring correct.

I finally got around to re-wiring the floor mount gas pedal from a 2013 Cadillac ATS. The new pedal feels amazing!

I also finished my steering changes. A new U joint to a 1.5:1 steering quickener to my quick release hub and eBay steering wheel makes up my new top end of my steering. The steering feels miles better, it actually responds now. Low speed maneuvers are mildly tough but no issue at all.

theres still much work to do! My handbrake is leaking brake fluid, so I need to address that and bleed brakes. The car needs a new windshield badly. I received a RAM mount today to help me run my amazon fire tablet diagnostics on the engine

Thank you! I very nearly went with yellow, as that’s my favorite car color. But something about this aqua just clicked with me. I’m a huge Subaru fan, I even have another Impreza

The STI is my daily, everyone In the neighborhood makes fun of me because my cars are bright colors. I make fun of them because they are boring sheep.
