Northants newbie wrx wagon

Been a member now for a while but more of a reader than a writer but thought I should introduce myself.
I recently finished rebuilding my daily drive Impreza after a bit of a mishap, I ran into the back of someone who stopped at a green light ( their claim got rejected due to trying to claim for more people in the car than there actually was and suspected crash for cash). Anyway my insurance wanted to write it off without even looking so I decided not to claim and carried out the repairs on the car myself.
The damage


The repair in less than a week with the wider saloon front end.


Shortly after I decided I wanted a matching wide rear


Then a lick of paint and she was back on the road


So the cars been back on the Rd for a few months now and have since been buying plenty of products to try and learning the ways of washing and detailing.

I'll be asking a few more questions from here on in and thanks for all the knowledge and help already received from reading the posts on here.
