Great looking block Jedi! Lot's of hard work went into this one, I can tell.

You've given the best advice on the forum also: saving money on fuel is nothing without a happy wife/girl

My original idea was to make the block completely flush with the bumper, but I didn't have enough bondo to finish both sides of the bumper.

So the lip is just a little something I came up with to make both sides look symmetrical.

Thanks for the kind words!

I thought the best advice on this forum is learning to EOC.... Jk

Yes, happy girlfriend let's me tinker more with the car. But at the same time, she took away my video games! But, that's OK because beewbs.... Ok that was a little immature

Really nice work. The ziptie plugs would probably please the g-friend even better (somehow that seems dirty, but it's not, sorry).

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

This makes it look even more OEM for me. As if it is just a part you screw in. Subaru should sell this!

In reality most people are bench racers that only care if they think the car is faster or if it looks faster.
