Beside the overall paint job, custom intake, wheels, and custom intake, I have upgraded the audio system. I am running Orion Audio all around, so comps in the front and rear and the amp powering them and Orion's subs and amp. I have the two 12in Orion subs squeezed in to where the stock 6.5 woofer is haha. I will be posting up pictures for my setup as soon as finish all the wiring. I'm currently planing out a pop up screen above the navi screen for a carputer. I am also planing on supercharging her! but that much later!

Welcome aboard...nice work!

Just one comment on choice of color...looks like the stock newport blue but it does look to be a little deeper? If you went through the trouble of painting you shoulda went with color that doesn't look like any of the stock to be totaly unique;) :wave:

The color I picked is actually a tweaked Honda color. I just added red, blue, and silver pearl to it, I also gave it a darker tint. Picture does not show its true color. It is a truly unique color. Nothing outrageous though.

Reason why I picked a simple color is because people tend to attack my car with shopping carts and keys. So i wanted a color that I could easily mix and spray with out having a difficult time matching. For example after the paintjob was finished about a month ago. i had to paint both rear doors again. One door was a shopping cart, and the other was a huge door ding.

I would have gone with a crazy color from house of kolor but it is so hard to match without blending into my other panels

Hah, I hear ya. My right rear bumper corner is also a magnet for shopping carts apparently. It's been scuffed/scratch in about the same spot on 3 different occasions:eek:

It's definitely a nice color, I could tell it seemed more "blue" than the stock newport blue. You're lucky you have to resources to paint it up yourself:tup:

Yes I have thought of doing that. Just haven't found the time.

I still have alot of work to put into it. I hit a large animal on the highway a few nights ago. Did some major damage. Lost my tow hook cover and right fender molding. Also half my bumper was hanging and the right headlight seems to be leaking water now. I guess i joust found some time to paint the inside of the headlights haha:lol:

Hey gndm93, I have a question.

I got my first door ding/ dent in my 08 Outback Sport. It is somewhat of a crease door ding and it sits right on top of a body crease line. Is this something that PDR can fix?

thanks for the advice.

Post 17 gives the part numbers I used. It was just swapping out the springs. Really easy. Can be done in a few hrs with the right tools.

I have the springs and top hat. Pm me if youre interested.

I swapped them out for the factory the springs for the winter a few years ago. My aunt ended up totaling my car that winter.
