'05 to '08 Rear Bumper and Taillight Conversion
 
This has been brought up quite a bit and I have not seen anybody do it yet, so I will be the first (that I know of).

After my Legacy was rear ended for the second time, I decided to try it out. It's in the body shop right now and I am told the only thing needed for this to happen is '08 bumper brackets to go along with the bumper and tails. I will keep this updated.

Here she is for now (parts are on order):

I personally dont like the new rearend. But if this is your goal then by all means consider this a bump for a major "how-to" contribution possibility.

I was gonna do that. Let me know if the only way you get the rear reflectors is with the bumper cover.

There is already a lot of discussion over who likes it and who doesn't. I'm doing it and letting those interested know how it goes. Thanks.

Why does there appear to be a gap in the second picture? Is it just not pushed up or is that a fitment issue you have to tackle? It doesn't seem to be the same on the right which lends me to believe it's just not pulled tight.

Anyhow, nice progress. Oh, and did you respray the front bumper?

MiniStiGuy 10-03-2008 05:32 PM

yeah it appears that the rear quarter panel doesn't align with the bumper
