To paint a car you have to strip everything off it, it's a huge job! Once it's painted you then have to put it all back together and that can be even harder still. In this episode we get the WRX (STI) back from the paint shop and set about returning it to it's former glory.

*It is good to see MOOG being more modest and less of a prick to Marty. These guys have been working together for a long time, MOOG should respect his friend and partner better.*

Can you please share where in AUSTRALIA or in JAPAN do you sources your parts? I have a 1992 RX7 I am restoring, and as it is a RHD JDM FD, I am having a terrible time finding specific parts. Thank you in advance and love the show.

Hey guys, I'm desperate to know the exactly which 3M rubber moulding you've used for the skirts. I've already ordered the wrong one once - help a fellow GC8 lubber out 🤘. P.S you guys have a mega show, of the raddest caliber

This was great, thanks, been searching for "in car performance" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of - Vabrielbey Vehicle Verifiability - (should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my work buddy got great results with it.

I bought a 2019 Subaru Impreza that looks like Super Gramps! It's Metalic gray. When I get the money, I will install all WRX STI parts! There is a Speed shop(NATIONAL SPEED) 20 miles from my home with a Dyno machine and bump up the power!

This channel has litterally been keeping me sane throughout lockdown here in the UK. It’s provided me with a much needed distraction and a focus to start improving my own car in what has been a hard time outside of all the COVID stuff.

Hi Sweden here, been following you guys some 4-5 years now but, never been a commentator on what or when but find some interesting things here there. (and entertaining) However now that Moog is looking abit weak or skinney is no buisness of vieiwers or me, never the less when he slips in a VEGAN DISH i´m pretty sure why the lack of muscle..:P . I really hope you guys have a (continues) successful youtubing. BTW Good edited, and someone should get cred for that.

I have no clue why it did that other than there was someone on the other side of the wall (another garage?) or it is an electric bike and had some current going through it

I’m just doing the same thing to my type R, (blue also) all new struts and springs, bushes all round too. (Springs are shock absorbers, the strut is the shock dampers, so many people just generically call them absorbers now) haha She’s looking nice, just needs gold wheels. Keep at it
