HPI Subie
#1
Hey guys-
While building my stepside Chevy for more of a for-show body I wanted to do up a Subaru STI for everyday bashing and running.
I started with the HPI Prova Subaru STI in 200mm. I wanted a classic look so i chose Spaz Stix candy blue and backed it with silver to make it pop... Boy did it! In the sun or good light the color is much more brilliant than the pictures show.
Here we go- pics incoming!

I built a roll cage- this is my second one and far from perfect, but i think it looks pretty cool

That's what i have so far... I'd like to figure out some rear light buckets, but i dont know if i have the skill to make some from scratch.
Does anyone make them?

Anyway, let me know what you think!

Oh and i used Xspede stealth mounts on the front to leave the hood clean, and holy crap they are strong!
