"Build"

2001 AP1
131000km
Canadian car with dealer service history
Came with crap 18" wheels with mismatched tires, Skunk2 cat-back, and some carbon cooling panel or something in the engine bay
Alpine headunit, pre-wired for under seat sub it appears
Paint is awful
Interior is in good shape

Plans:

Stock AP1 wheels with 225/50/16 RE71R
Hawk HP+ Brake Pads
Gendron FSB
Major paint revival
Possible front end repaint down the road

Pics to come.
Lots of seat time to come.
I don't name things I know I'm going to sell eventually. Hence why I'd never name any kids I had.

Reserved for snide comment later.

I also want the gendron front sway.

Is the AP1 not stock staggered like the AP2? Or are you going to run square tires on the stock staggered wheels?

I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

Square tires on staggered wheels.  I am...really limited with wheel and tire options for B Street.

Can't run AP2 wheels on the AP1 and stay in BS?

No, have to stay with what came stock for that generation. Different widths.

No, they are 1" wider than AP1 wheels.

This car is the coolest because AP1 and black.

Well, it's a silvery grey at the moment. But like 30 minutes with the ole' Ro-terry would clean that up.

I think I know what these are pics of. RIP in peace fozzy.

Also the S2K is probably a little worse than that from what I recall of seeing both in person.

Not the FXT you are thinking of.

Unless you are thinking of this one.

I bet that level of paint correction costs and arm and a leg, and possibly a testicle as well?

You own 2 Subarus, including a detuned GR STi, and a WRX with an EJ205. I don't think you get to decide what's cool.

Actually the paint was so soft and easy to correct that I did that all in a single step. The whole vehicle only took 9 - 10 hours from start to finish with the paint coating. It actually went pretty quick.

Still what's your rough "hourly rate"? $100/hr?  That's what I would ask to do this paint correction stuff, it drives me nuts haha.

I also detailed a black AP2 and the paint was very easy to work with. I have detailed 3 S2Ks now and I knocked them out in around 7-8 hours from start to finish.
