hers what i got so far.. i need to do a little welding or recruit someone near buy to assist:D but its coming along with zero out of pocket.

i cut out all but the frame of the grill and inserted some cool Aluminum mesh.. and notice the notched bumper for additional cooling(welding needed)
Posted Image
I believe thats about 6" off the front.. turn signal guards may be useless but the fit the theme.. who knows.. may stop a rock..
Posted Image

Looks ***************en, I am planning on doing something similar with my RX. I don't like the way the bumpers stick way out like they do.

I can help you with the welding. Maybe weld in a piece of angle iron where you cut the sheetmetal to stiffen it up a bit and keep the cooling effect?

I'm in Cornelius, OR, near Hillsboro.

looks good, maybe move the signals behind the grill and chop the rest of the bumper

what id like to do is box in the cut out section and weld in a smoothy plate along the protruding tab on top and bottom of the bumper. i think it should give the front end a nice clean look with flush turn signals

That's what I was planning on doing to my 89 this summer! Cool man. I plan on doing away with the blinkers in the bumper, and trying to re-wire the side marker light(next to the headlights) to be the blinkers with an amber bulb.

I agree that the bumpers make the car look goofy.

UPDATE!

so today i yanked the passenger side fender and removed the intake silencer box thing. I then proceeded to hack the bottom of the airbox out. sounds throaty almost ricey but more throaty so i think its ok.

so now where to in the no buck build up? i guess i could spend maybe ten bucks.. any one have any suggestions on where to go next?

Do believe that Subaru Master Guru, Skip,, has one of his rides re-wired so that the side markers are the turn signals now. May want to do a search for that.

the lights look good but it looks like you need to aim them.
