I've resprayed the whole car in 32J obsidian black pearl using glasurit 923-255 HS clear. Then coated in 'Always Dry's 'Extreme' ceramic coating. So many scratches and dents were bothering me too much.
Ditched the Speedy Carbine rims for gun metal grey Koya SF05s in 18x8.
VF52 with new Melett CHRA installed, waiting for retune by Matt this weekend hopefully.
PSR silicone inlet, k2 gear lookalike eyelids, evo 8 side skirt extensions, and genuine STI rear spoiler added.

Updated the main post to reflect all added mods. Heres a picture of what it looks like now.
I know alot of people say this, but I don't want to spend much more money on it and just want to enjoy it for now :lol:

Looks tough mate very nice. Question on the side skirt extensions...what brand did you get and did you have to do any modifications on them?

Thanks for kind words guys I'm glad yous like it.

I bought them from here https://www.jsai.com.au/product/mitsubishi-ct9a-evolution-7-8-9-damd-style-side-skirts/
I didn't modify them at all as they matched the liberty side skirt length, I just used self tapping screws to install them. They looked kind of 'wavey' as you look down the side of the car as they didn't sit perfectly flush to the side skirt.
I've since taken them off as they weren't perfectly straight, and installed the Delta Speed side and rear aero set. Will upload pics soon :)

Can’t beat the delta speed set, long term you could investigate the ds rear set (or just rear sides) and the short jdm sedan bumper to suit. It completes the Sti lip spoiler wave all the way around the car :good:

Edit: read the first post: kudos for doing the whole delta speed set, adm bumper too ;)

Lmk if the evo skirts are fs, I’d like to source a suitable low line rocker to mod for jdm spats n strakes. Something moar substantial than eg Bunnings skirts. :)

Yeah I heard that the Delta Speed rear kit doesn't fit the adm bumper well, when the kit arrived last week I put it on anyway and it looks good enough for me.
It doesn't sit perfectly flush to the rear bumper but its difficult to tell. Aside from that the set is amazing quality for fibreglass, I was expecting pinholes and cracks everywhere.

Unfortunately I sold the evo skirt extensions a couple of months ago. They're pretty cheap to get hold of anyway. And yeah I got sick of the bunnings edging look :lol:

Heres a couple pics of the Delta Speed kit installed. What you see is straight from the box, no painting or modifying it to fit to the aud bumper

I got them through importmonster. It took like 3 months for them to arrive but the shipping costs were much better than japanparts.
