I just won't look in the sideview and I'll be fine. Wink

It's a turbo heat shield trimmed to fit the bigger downpipe and the thing in the zippy is an adapter to connect the 3" DP flat flange to the stock catback donut gasket.

Hey Guys,

I think while I save for a new set of wheels, I am going to paint my stockers and then use them for winter tires next winter. I was originally going to paint them metallic charcoal, but having seen some bronze painted ones in my searches, it's kinda hard to ignore that now. Wink I think the bronze would actually pick up some of the golden pearl that's in the factory Garnet Red Pearl paint...

If it help in your considerations, I will be tinting the windows and possibly lowering the car an inch or so.

Any p-shop wizards got some spare time? lol (pics above ^^^)

So.... Charcoal? Bronze? Black? Other?

Smile

Bronze wheels on subies are overdone imo. I'd do black or charcoal.

Really? I've never actually seen one. I saw one pic of bronze painted factory LGT wheels in a 174 page long pic thread on the LGT forum. ONE! Never had seen it before and I thought it was the balls. I've seen plenty of gold rimmed scoobies around, but never bronze. Maybe I just haven't been paying enough attention? scratch

The more I think about it, the kickassener it seems to me! Wink

I still like the bronze best.
