2016 Subaru WRX STi

I’ve been a car lover ever since I can remember! From my first car, a 1987 Pontiac Fiero to my current 2016 Subaru STi, I’ve owned a WIDE variety of vehicles over the years (Z32, Q45, Z34, Range Rover, LS460 just to name a few)! Aesthetics have alway been my passion, but depending on the build, I would put the focus on power, interior, audio and switch it up from build to build.

With my current build, I wanted to cosmetically create something that would truly stand out from any other STi build. So I ventured to create the first full carbon fiber exterior VAB STi! It was a labor of love that took a year+, and I’m happy to say that the exterior is pretty much close to complete (but are we reaaaaally ever done?!). Now I plan to focus on building out the interior and motor a bit, and just enjoy showing the car.

Oh by the way, I own an automotive restyling company, Fly1 Motorsports. So if you need any custom carbon fiber work, feel free to reach out!!
