Painted The Legacy (no ford stuff here)

Wow, way more time consuming than I expected!
I think it looks great. The paint is black metallic, no gloss in the headlights. Lots of clear on the grille and the fog surrounds, has a pretty decent gloss on it. Hope it holds up! I still think it may need different signal bulbs, but probably safer to have some amber in there.
This car is begging to be lowered too...


Before


Now




What do you guys think?!

Those are 17's, lol.

I'm hoping by Christmas to have it lowered about 1" with bigger sway bars, and 18's with 225/40's.


I won't put the silverstar signal bulbs in there, I hate those. I always thought they looked really "ricey" with the blue tint, I don't know. I may get chrome covered bulbs that light up amber like I have on the F150. But since I pulled the reflector out I kind of think I should keep the amber bulbs. Haven't decided yet.
I have silverstar bulbs in the projectors (low beam) and silverstars on the way for the high beam, as well as nokya yellow fog light bulbs.

Ignore that n00b. He started out with 14"s remember? lol

Ties into the black grille and fog surround bezels perfectly, great job. It is going to look gret when you're all done with it.

Short throw shifter?

RallySportDirect.com - Kartboy Legacy GT Short Shifter 2005 + / 2008+ WRX

or Coilovers... :drool:

RallySportDirect.com - Cusco Zero2 Legacy GT CoilOvers BP9

The car looks more "youthful" now. Before it just looked normal.

I was surprised at myself for baking the head lights too. I tried the stock F150 headlights the other day for practice and I couldn't get them apart for the life of me. But these went well. I just hope they don't leak or I'll be pissed! lol

I have the lowering springs, shocks, sway bars and all that stuff planned out already. I just need the money. I'm torn between powder coating stock wheels or buying 18's. What I have seen on the forums, the stock wheels/tires in good condition sell for $600-700. I haven't decided on an aftermarket wheel that I like and is affordable. A short throw shifter will go on there too at some point.

Cody I may ask for some photoshop help after the windows are tinted, the magnaflow is on and I get some better pictures. Maybe next week?
