JDM clear corners. FYI the ones japanparts.com sells to fit 00-02' fit the 98-99's just fine. Pretty straight forward install. Had slight electrical problems that have been resolved (http://www.subaruforester.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=19801).





Debadged everything but "SUBARU" on the trunk. Used the tried and true method of a hair dryer and dental floss, with Ungoo and a credit card to get the rest of the glue off.



Rockford Fostgae 10" Punch Z woofer w/alpine amp. Hits well for being a 10, definitely ties in the sound system a bit better. Also added Kenwood 4" rear door speakers so the whole sound system sounds crisper and better.



Few more random shots for ya :biggrin:

Nice lookin SF Man! I'd love to get my hands on a set of those JDM tails. Just wish I had the money to shell out for them. I think I'm just gonna paint the orange turn signals to match the brake lights and see how that looks. either that or smoke em black to match the car. I'll have to get some pics up sometime soon.

no doubt, gotta keep it going cuz the SF is just the hotness, I can't help it if I offend anybody cuz I'm not trying to, but the SF is just so much better looking than SG, especially the newer SF with the white/red tails that I'm so jealous of..

haha thanks guys. Last saturday I converted to WRX front brakes (earlier WRX, no 4-pots) with Hawk HPS pads. Brakes feel MUCH better now and stops very well. I'll try to get some pics up soon.

Why? Arent the 02-05 wrx 2pot fronts basically the same thing as the forester 2pot front brakes anyways?

edit: forgot, the SF brakes must be smaller, 03+ forester brakes are the same as 02-05 wrx i believe
