Had to drive a good distance on a partially flat tire. Will learn in the morning whether or not the bolt stuck in my tire can be removed and then have the hole patched. Damn Home Depot parking lot.

I'm currently rocking the never-been-used donut.

Will they actually apply the clear protector over fresh paint? I didn't think anywhere would do that. I need to have mine repaired and protected; stupid rock chips.

Yeah you can apply the 3M protectors on fresh paint, just never expect to remove it, it'll take the paint off with it. We recommend waiting for the paint to fully cure before any coverings are put on it.

Got the report back from Blackstone.

Still showing small amounts of silver, but everything else looks fine..
It's going to be rather anoying if this motor doesn't pop before the warranty is up...

Today I replaced my clock display, resurfaced the headlamps, touched up all my rock chips, put in a set of all weather floor mats, replaced the windshield, and ordered a new Exedy clutch kit to put in when I replace the shift shaft seal that is leaking.

Waking up early to drop my subie off at Audio Northwest in Lacey for a hopefully competition capable Hybrid/Massive system. So stoked

Nice.
No it's not hard at all that's just what I would do if I owned that vehicle and was interested to see how it would look.
And now my belief of it looking good has been confirmed.
I'm sure a more staged shot with more of the car in it would look even better.

Orange car with black accents pair so well! Also, all chrome grills look wayyyy better black IMO, did this to my 06 legacy when I had it and its one of the best aesthetic mods I did considering the price.

+1 on black over chrome. Wasn't a huge fan when Subaru started putting chromey bits all over. Looks much better now!

Today I bought a Kartboy short shifter and the bushings. I hope it isnt that hard to install.

Bushing are tricky the first time doing them. Use lots of grease and unbolt the heat shield below the short shifter bushings.
