today i worked on the legacy GT a bit and had some hood-up time.

my 2005 5MT wagon is at 98k miles and needs a major svc that ive pushed to a later date. so today the power steering was making noise and had weird feel through the wheel. topped up the PS fluid reservoir.

car is burning oil like crazy. about 1qt per 1000 miles at this point. admittedly, i drive hard. after getting synthetic this summer about 4th of july, car was nearly bone dry when checked two wks ago. engine was running hot but i did not see it bc my garmin blocks temp gauge. [oops]

radiator also needed fluids badly. my key point: service your subie. im always amazed at how much better it drives after a service. i am cashpoor ATM. at the moment

lastly, and what i had pics of: New DIY honeycomb grille, painted and nearly installed. debating what badge to use. thoughts about this old one i recovered VS the traditional blue stars...?
