I thought about doing that to an STi around the block from me. Love the BBS wheels the blobs come with.

How do you guys think my Advans would look black?

I personally think it would look pretty sick, you thinking flat or gloss black?

Flat, I'm going to plasti dip them... Used iton other other projects in the past and I fell in love with the stuff, finally found it here at this place called viva home. Pretty happy I came across it. Thinking about using it to black out the headlight housing as well...and if I don't like it I can just peel it off.

Just the housing? Nah, only if it effects the safety of other people seeing you.

Didn't like how low the car sat when I first got it, but it's starting to grow on me.
That's a nice shot, what camera are you using?

And does anyone know where I can find bondo on island?

I use my iPhone 4S, most of the pictures come out pretty good. I have about a ton on my nikon but I'm way to lazy to upload them.

So I changed the oil today... Went with Castrol edge syntec 10w40. Hopefully the car likes it.

Let me just say, this was the most easy oil change I have ever done. didnt even jack the car up. What a piece of cake. Took 10 minute

I've been running Edge for the last 9k and my car loves it, its held great even despite how bad I hammer on the engine. Low burn-off and shear as well.

I looked on amazon and a quart cost $15. That's a bit pricey, if I go to a Subaru dealership on island would you have a ballpark figure on the service?

And glad you're back on Island maybe we could all go out for a drive soon?

I put Amsoil 80w-90 in the trans and diff without issue. It's cheaper than super s and available at Typhoon Motors.

I spent 4200 yen on the extra s for a 6spd(I had them fill up a empty gas tank. I love that gear oil and I had no issues with it. To get the tranny service with extra s at Naha Subaru shop I think will run around 6000 yen.


I heard good things about Amsoil but IMO, I prefer extra s!

Yeah I've heard and read nothing but great things about extra S, as soon as I do my clutch Ill be using using it. Is it a pain to flush the coolant system in these cars? One of my coolant pipes had a very small leak and I can't figure out which one -_- so I'm debating changing all the hoses and flushing the system.
