Then decided to use up the last scrap of CF wrap Ive had laying around to wrap the center dash piece
As you can see the odd angles of the radio opening meant I couldnt get the wrap into those bends without popping back up so I had to cut it back a bit. For now Ill leave it like that. Whenever I get around to getting a decent head unit Ill wrap it again but throw down a coat of flat black underneath so it isnt so obvious.

After hearing that our cars do in fact have cabins, and watching a how-to video I decided to see what mine looked like:


Haha maybe Ill throw one in there at some point

Also tweaked my spacer with a spacer, doubt this will do the trick its barely changing it at all. I have one more trick up my sleeve then I might buy an extension and try the sensor bung farther back on the midpipe

Got home from work and surprisingly had energy and was in one of those "I want to fiddle with my car a bit" moods so I started by trying a new o2 sensor setup. Basically its the same setup i tried in post 183 but I drilled out the inlet a bit


Then I pulled the skirt from that side and straightened my crushed pinch weld


Then when I had the car idling to reset the computer I took this. Does the ticking concern anyone else or is this a Subaru thing? The video also came out weird, there is an odd pop a little bit in and then the volume gets louder from there on out. But you get the point

Took the car out to play in the snow storm in an empty parking lot
Got a good amount of sliding in, which while it was fun it was very good for me. I have kind of a mental block now that ive totaled two cars from losing grip, so it was good to slid around at slower speeds to see what it takes to control the slide

After about 20mins or so I was escorted out by a sheriff patrol car, he was cool though ... and I quote "I could care less, its just that someone complained"

I admire your build and your enthusiasm for modding an NA Subie to get the most you can get from the stock product. I'm doing the same thing, a little at a time.

I must say, though, that your ride is way too low--I can't imagine that at that height the car handles well at all suspension-wise. The GD RS isn't fast, so a well-tuned combo of bushings and bouncy-bits is the most fun you'll get with this car, and that really is the fun part! So why drop it and ruin a lot of parts?

Doooood, I live in the 'cuse too and this winter will kill a slammed profile.

Anyhow, good luck and happy holidays!

Love the build so far, just picked myself up a MY05 RS wagon. Was abused in the past (currently starts and runs on 3 cylinders with a view port) but this gives me a little more reason to be proud to keep it a RS.

Hit black ice entering a tunnel, hit wall.
Rear end damage = looking at new rear bumper and rear tailight
Front end damage is bad - impact at front drivers side. Pushed everything in pretty good. At first it looked like just new bumper and fender then I noticed the hood is all wonkey cuz it pushed the "frame" (bit around the grille) in a bit and down.
Can this be straightened or am I sol?

It's probably the core support all mangled. You can drill the welds and weld on a new core support. It's not that hard.
