This is something I took upon myself to try. a little something to keep me occupied for a couple hours. I did muck the first one up, but very happy with the outcome. the idea was to delete the ashtray and make a plate to house my AFR gauge when I get one.

The material I used was galvanised sheet metal. ideally i would have liked to have used aluminium but the sheet i had was over 1mm thick and very hard to bend without a vice. After a lot of measuring I started by using tin snips to cut out a shape which would work. I then bent the screw tabs into place and drilled the holes for mounting. The mounts are all on the back of the shifter surround where the ashtray screws into.

Image

the volt gauge was just an idea as I did have one in my ashtray beforehand. I didn't end up using it as I thought it would look a bit out of place.

Image

Test fitting to make sure it fits.

Image

all finished. primed and painted in semi-gloss black. using a 52mm boost gauge just to mock up.

Your car is looking good. :ok:

Have you thought about blackening the headlights to make it look more like a STi? You seem to have that look going on.

Thanks bud.

Id love to have sti taillights and headlights but they are pretty expensive. Ive found some aftermarket rear lights on ebay which ive heard are pretty good and fit well. They are also blacked out. Headlights however i dont think they make any aftermarket ones and im not game enough to pull them apart and paint my oem ones.

The headlights are really not that hard to pull apart and reseal.
You just need to take your time and reseal them properly with Butyl rubber.
It's worth the effort if you have the time to give it a go.

I have aftermarket STi Taillights (Depot from memory) and have no issues with them.

i found the depo lights on amazon today, both front and rear. ill most likely get the rears soon and then get the front when i can afford them.

so here's what under the bonnet looks like currently. future plans to get a process west top mount and install my process west cold air intake. AVO turbo inlet is in and was a bit of a pain to install. there are a few vacuum lines that need to be taken care of but will work for now.
