Thanks for the kind words!
That's Mochi, my 5 month old Aussie.
I got the emblem from a local member of NASIOC. It was only $20, a steal! Unfortunately it's not large enough to cover the holes from the de-badging. They are pretty small though, so I don't mind them too much. I think I'm going to get some of those Impreza wing delete cover vinyls.
Your bumpers turned out great Timo! You're the one who inspired me to do mine. I want to do plastidip though because I feel it will hold up better than paint, not to mention won't chip. I just hit up ebay, thanks for the tip!
