Default Apalacpac 2006 Garnet Red Forester

So got this about 2 years ago, May 2013. I'm a student, so modding was progressively slow. I did what I can on a budget. Mostly all the mods I did we're on a budget. Finally got a FT job, and started to put things together. Enjoy:)

Installed some WRX take offs. I actually bought WRX struts. And WRX wagon springs seperately. Still have a saggy buy. So eventually I had 2 sets of struts and 2 sets of springs. I got the pieces I wanted, and still made $50:D. So essentially, I made profit lowering my car.

Finally new wheels. 2011 WRX wheels. Props to Wessneroo for helping me with this. Plastidipped gold. 3mm spacers in the rear.

The wheels did come with some curb rash. I was able to sand, and fill w/ bondo. Props to NASARACERS diy for curb rash repair.
