    Hi all

    Finally!!!...after near on 3 months, stage 1 has been completed of the 'WOO's' transformation.

    Cash saved on negotiating a fair price for the GT model has been funneled back into personalizing her.

    Here's the scope thus far...
    1. Chrome delete on lower window trim using 3M 12mm black pinstripe.
    2. Replaced front under grille with Corazon front under grille and 3M matte black vinyl wrapped.
    3. Replaced front upper grille with Corazon front grille type S FRP, 3M matte black vinyl wrapped outer section, painted inside section to match car colour. At this stage i ran with the Corazon badge painted to match car colour.
    4. Replaced tail lights with Corazon Led tail lamp black bezel.
    5. Chrome deleted tail end strip above number plate with 3M matte black vinyl.
    6. Chrome deleted the accessory liner with 3M matte black vinyl.
    7. De-badged tail end of Levorg and AWD.
    8. Replaced the stock silver Enkei rims with Corazon wheel matte black type.
    9. Used Corazon titanium iridescent lug nuts to secure said rims.
    10. Replaced the govt. standard issue maroon number plates to slim line black & white number plates.
    Note: To me it was alot cheaper than buying personalized number plates.
    11. MCA suspension X-c series

    One could say it's a Corazon Levorg now. I'm quite pleased in how she turned out :D

    Will post results of stage 2, when ever that occurs o_O

    Well done. Are the tail lights the sequential indicators?

    Cheers.
    They aren't the sequential indicators. I bought mine before Corazon had realeased those ones.

    Looks nice Parian. Definitely rather the black trim on a darker colour car. Must get around to requesting new plates, they look so much better. How did you find the rear light replacement? Any tricks or fairly easy change over?

    Gratitude Chris.
    The only job i got Subaru to do was replace the tail lights. If i applied myself to the task i probably would have been able to do it.

    If anyone gets any of the items that i have purchased and would like the translated installation instructions then feel free to ask ;)

    How durable is the Plastidip?

    Also what suspension setup are you looking at? I want to upgrade mine for the same reason.

    Thanks, yours is coming together nicely too.

    Did you do the exhaust in plasti-dip as well? I'm wondering if it will hold up against the temperature. I considered vinyl wrapping mine yet thought that my emission levels may sky rocket.
    Nice choice on the exhaust purchase.

    Before you plasti-dip your tail lights have a look at the potential to use a tint or even a 3M vinyl wrap ;)

    May i ask where you sourced your LED's from...

    I thought that the valving of the Bilstein's was the problem and not the springs? That was why I was going the Coilover path. Bilstein Japan has an set for the Levorg. Heasman's in Sydney install European spec Bilstein's for STi's.

    From the research I have done, very. I was going to get the wheels and stuff powder coated but people have had the plastidip for at least a year without issue, and that on the exhaust let alone the other stuff I have done.

    May i ask where you sourced your LED's from.....

    Sorry missed this, I got the reverse and indicator LED's from ebay mate. All the front (DRL, Fogs and High bean) came from blingworks (http://www.blingworkauto.com.au/?s=Subaru)

    Dizrr, be aware the sequencial lights require additional wiring to be run to the front of the car.
