My WRB Legacy GT
This is my thread on my LGT and previous builds. Sorry for thread jacking, I apologize.
Installed cleared out headlights, JDM Reverse lighting Panel
This is how I did the WRX lip install:
Distinction between Zenki and Kouki (JDM) lighting panels is the full silver line and the upgraded bright red LED and halogen lamp design.
Here's a picture of lighting function: Kouki model

I am in West Sacramento, California. It's a short walk to State Capital. If you are in area we could meet. BAM12 is coming up and so is Subiefest for SoCal, might go with a few friends to Subiefest all depending on work schedule.

How much was the paint job?

subleg05gt 07-07-2012 05:25 AM

such a nice color

It was a complete paint-job, quite expensive but worthy since I am going to keep it for a long time. I'll post some pictures of transition stages.

Glad you made your own thread. I heard you made it to the meet on Thursday I should be out this Thursday.

Looks really good! I want to know how much you paid also looks like quality work. Also what color was your wagon before hand, and what about the engine bay?

Paint job was 3500 including taking out dings and dents. It was a 3 stage paint job meaning 3 layers for the paintwork. It was solvent based not water based paint. Paint layers were blue base color coat then World Rally Blue base metallic coat, followed finally by hard clear coat. Engine bay is still dark blue. WRB cars have a dark blue base. I kept it dark blue base color in engine bay to color match with my previous WRB cars. Yes, it's true that it's got a dark blue engine bay but it matches up perfectly as if it came from factory painted as it should.

The Legacy in beginning stages.

It started out as a 2005 Legacy GT Limited wagon. It's 5 speed manual version with full leather interior. Pretty nice until WRB bug hit me again. Again is because WRB is what my past WRX wagon was.

Transition stage:
Prepping primer stage for blocking down whole chassis.
WRB Base and clear!!
Remember: Always cut out quarter glass when doing anything like this, it is for cleaner overall results. If you don't you risk having a clearly visible line of color shift and clear coat being thin at cutoff where the molding sits.

Assembly stage! It's quite a task, everything was taken apart, prepped and painted. It's time to assemble the big lego set.
DAY 1 Progress! Everything is disconnected and must track all items and remember where things went in sequence!
DAY 2! Power options are functional!
