Figured it might be nice to have a photo thread to share anything related to what everyone here in New England is up to.

Since everyone doesn't have photo hosting I have created the following site where photos can be uploaded. Just visit the site, choose your file, enter a username (optional) and the password berlina. Photos will appear in the main index. Click your photo, then use that URL to link it in a post.

As long as the site is not abused, it's open to use FOR THIS THREAD. Please do it use it for posting in other threads or forums. K. Thx.

Good job. Car looks great Kenta.

No projects on the car, but we do like to drive the car on road trips.

We didn't try floating in a bubble, nor did we try the Cows Ice cream. I kept meaning to, but never got around to it. I like ice cream, but a couple cones a year and I'm good. Matter of fact, just started a thread in Vintage about going out for ice cream. It seems to be a national past time for many.

Going out for ice cream

Stop by the thread if you'd like. All are welcome in Vintage land.

Usually I'm not a fan of really dark colors for counter tops, but that kitchen design is awesome. :thumbup:

I'll toss a few in here. After Saturday's drive a couple buddies hopped on a train down to NY for some photography fun.

Here's my first edit (haven't had much time still).

Awesome plate relocation, Kenta! I might have to pull something like that in the future.

This one is great:

Kenta, where did you buy that? What does it mount on to? They are starting to crack down on front plates in my area big time.

I thought about running no plate in NH, but our fine is a $150 ticket. So I built that plate mount. It started as a 32" strip of aluminum. Dimensions are roughly:

2.5" (90 degree bend) 4" (90 degree bend) 4" (Slight bend for "JDM" look) 1"

The metal costs less than $4 for a strip (from Home Depot) and I made both brackets from one strip. Then a few bucks in hardware on both ends (larger bolts and lock washers for the mounting to the car, then smaller bolts and washers for the plate mounting). Basically I measured it out, cut the piece, then put it in a vice and wacked it with a hammer to get the bends I wanted. Repeat for each bend.

The brackets are mounted to the front bumper support. There are already holes there so no modification to the car is required. I think the stock air deflector goes into those holes so if you've already removed that, like if you have a cooling plate, then the holes are open, perfect spot. On the mounts I drilled holes on each end, slightly off center on the plate mounting side as the mounting holes were slightly wider than the width of a standard license plate.

After I made the brackets and test fit them I sprayed them with black PlastiDip aerosol, I could have used primer + black paint but it was cheaper and quicker for me just to do two quick coats of Platidip. Not as durable, but no one will probably see the brackets anyway and it worked.

I was concerned if I hit a hard bump that the plate might bounce on the bracket, It is pretty sturdy because the lengths are all short so there isn't much flex, but for aesthetics and as a safety measure I surrounded the plate with cut pieces from some door edge guard I picked up at Pep Boys. I think that cost about $10, which is pretty much what I spent on parts for this entire project.

So, cheap, easy to build, no modifications to the car required. Of course, your results may vary. You'll have to measure out the lengths and fab for whatever bumper you're running.

Had my '05 STi built by them without issue, and have spent enough time in their shop, around their shop, and with past customers to see more successful cars and stories than dissatisfaction.

This is a photo thread, not an internet rumor thread. I guess every forum has 'them'.
