I had a 91 first gen. The seats were so comfortable. Wish I had them in my 99 OBW. The sedan will make a very nice daily driver!

the STi floormats are nice plus they match my interior. the generic mats were too big, bunching up and with the cold weather, the stiffness was annoying... plus I really like the built in "stay" feature that holds the mats in place!

wagon antenaa into the sedan... after swapping the brackets, and adding a short wire section, I had to modify the upper collar to fit in the sedan, but the outer collar and seal didn't seal tight... so I used a nice body plug from an ea81 wagon. cut the underside of the plug off, and then cut a hole in it so if fit on underneath the antenna part, and now it is nicely sealed....

Great upgrades.

Hey mick, i think i have a little bit of the spray can of paint left from when I did the fender probably not much in there, but you could spray into a little cup for some touchup paint for nicks and scratches here and there. I will keep it around if you need some, it matches close enough still i see.
Nice SS. Lets go to the next meet.
