Went wingless on my 'burple' STI. Chrome strip will go in the parts pile shortly.

Crappy cell phone pic.



Props to Precision Collision in Beaverton for a spot on color match, excellent service and communication.

Wife gave me EDM dual console box as an early xmas present which also got installed today. Great piece, shame it's not an OEM option in the US.

Installed RCE front and rear sways with kartboy end links over the weekend. Tried to run up to Hurricane Ridge today, but learned that the road was closed Monday through Thursday (after driving from Bremerton to Port Angeles).

Finished installing the Koyo only to find that the OEM hoses are too old to form a tight seal, even with max clamping. Perrin hoses ordered...

More sealant to hopefully stop all my leaks! Cleaned the ol' intake filter as well, and disassembled the dash in hopes of soon installing a new heater blower motor! Good day for a project car.

I thought the same thing, I figured after seeing a buddies burst it'd be good preventative maint. So I ordered new rad and hoses!

I've got about 82k on my car, so if you've got near or over that, might want to replace the hoses.

I've read various forum posts here and elsewhere which suggest replacing radiator hoses every 4 years, but I dunno how accurate that is.

It's just a severe inconvenience more than anything, since now I have to wait for the hoses to arrive, drain the radiator again, remove the old hoses, slap on the new ones, and then fill and burp the system

Reinstalled stock 04 headlights to replace the Morrette's I'm selling.

Out with the old Morrette lights


In with the new/old stock headlights


I think the stock headlights look WAY better

Perfect. I will look for those today. I am getting an alignment and corner balance by a race shop today. Can't wait to make the trek across the country to get back to Oregon. Looks like everyone is having fun in the snow.
