Subaru Impreza STI...

Just finished this car up yesterday. There are a couple of imports that I would drive, and this is one of them

Getting prepped for surgery



A lot of people ask what Clay does. This is Clay, and this is what clay pulls off the paint, even after it's been washed.



And here was the worst part of the car.....the wing. Paint was rock hard on this thing, and it had the most scratches. Owner said it was caught in a wind storm, and a tree limb was constantly brushing up against it. This is a 50/50 shot, with the top half in the process of being worked, and the bottom have untouched.

Sorry bout the after pictures, sun was pretty much gone when we finished this thing. Planning to go back out there later this week, and will get some better pictures then. Tried to play with the exposure on the camera, but kept coming out blurry. So for now...

I was just thinking yesterday how it's about time to get the black truck back over to you for it's yearly buff job.

j/k

Let me know when you're ready. I'm a bit backed up, so give me a little notice ahead of time.

Will do. I need some chips fixed too...been using the truck to run back and forth to Shreveport.

Blue car is still in Houston..added some things....it is FAST. Now has 6 spd, 13" rotors with brembo calipers all the way around, full Ohlins suspension, etc. Once body work is done I'll bring it buy for a full on show detail.

Curious, clay bars are 1 time use only right?

Car looks good, but buying a black vehicle is dangerous. They look awesome spotless though..

You could have washed the spider webs off before you took the first pics.
