Pictures from my dirty car, half-assed, nasty day, photoshoot. Pictures taken with my Galaxy Nexus.
The problem that I ran into with my stud repair was the STi trunk has two different studs. One is longer than the other. I ordered the wrong one by accident, my fault. Luckily I ordered two of them because they are notorious for snapping off, a second one snapped off in removal. Got the wing off and tried to fit the shorter stud into the grooves on the wing, wasn't happening. So, I sat there for about ten minutes and then I compared the slide bases and found the one was only slightly narrower and thinner than the other. So, off to the shed I went to get my file that I had not used in about 2.5 years from when I installed rear WRX seats in my RS. 2 minutes of filing each and they were both able to slide into place and click.
I went to get back into the trunk with the wing off and forgot about how much tension the STI torsion bars have. That thing flung up and about hit me in the face.

Shes a beauty.
Where did the STI front lip go?
This fellow's car never had it since he owned it, as it appears. Only picture I see of a blue with one of the chins is the guy he bought the trunk lid from....
EDIT: I stand corrected. Went all the way back to the start of the thread and there it is. I dunno either.

I took the JDM STi lip off a few days after I bought the car. The roads here and parking lots suck so I did not want to risk it.
It is still in the shed.
I have this now:

I know what you mean. I been fighting to find time to clean it for a month.

No, I am not wingless. That was just for an hour while I replaced some studs a few months ago on the trunk.
