    My plan is for 19 inch STI rims, de chroming and de badging. After that? Not sure. I was considering a piggyback ecu and a Blitz cat back exhaust, but apparently its a bit complicated and costly to make tuning mods in Norway...

    Welcome here. There is another chap from Norway in here, and I'm sure he'll introduce thyself soon. IIRC he did mod his 'Vorg a bit, too :)

    [edit]Well, looks like you found Stumpvold already :D

    What are you waiting for to set up a meet ? :eek:
    Set that up on SDCN and invite all the other Subaru drivers :p
    Or just the Subaru station wagon if you fear that'd be too many people :p

    Ok, not done much to my Levorg over the winter, since the weather has been crap and I dont have a garage.

    She has been washed every week, had two exterior detailings (one just polish and one over all buffing with Autoglym paint restoring compound, de badging and waxing with Autoglym polish), been de badged, had her front fog lamp chrome bits plasti dipped (the only bits I was brave enough to try when the weather was so bad) and had several stone chips touched in (a couple of which were starting to rust).

    Sorry, but for some reason I cant upload pics. So pics soon...

    Ok, just finished doing a wee chrome delete on my motor. Used plasti dip ultrasonic blue, and although a little light in shaed, I think it turned out ok? F1B4E5A7-D8D1-4E39-9453-D778573C505B.jpeg 7DB5EA5D-59F7-4F24-A195-26DD5A25D9DC.jpeg

    my reaction was something like this:
    that shade of blue doesn't work, that looks bad... but not that bad. you know what? it's off but i kinda like it somehow. yeah i changed my mind, i like it.

    Yeah, so Ive been up to something... The Norwegian winter, a multitude of stone chips and the rigours of pressure washing have ruined the plasti dip on my stock grille.

    So, I bit the bullet and sourced a JDM one from JapanParts. Sounds good, right? Well, yes... but It has a chrome bezel and although I love the JDM grille, I effing hate chrome.

    So this happened; I dismantled the grille, wrapped the offending shiny bits with carbon look vinyl and re assembled! Just awaiting the front lip and then its time to strip off the bumper and get busy! 90DED2D6-B2A9-42BD-A0B1-D1934A17F165.jpeg DA222CEA-5246-4D63-BEE6-8B33CC7A8792.jpeg

    Yeah, well everything else is chrome free :D

    I forgot to mention; I also fitted new exhaust tips, blacked out the silver fake carbon fibre with plasti dip and have completely de chromed everywhere else;

    Oh! AND fitted aero splash guards.

    My 19s are off being repaired and refurbed too! Dotz Touge in 8x19. And Im planning on wrapping the roof and mirrors gloss black, once spring finally gets here...
