Painted and installed my lip spoiler from my last car. It was looking naked without it.

Got home before the storm. Have 2 rock chips in the forester windshield...because people cant stay on the damn road.

Park in the garage, realize my wifes new outback has a hairline in her windshield. Has just over 1k miles on it. ****. We both drive the same route daily. This sucks.

Trying to do an inspection but my windows are apparently too dark so they failed it. Anyone know a guy in DFW or a shop that is tint friendly?

^Looks good!

Replaced upper radiator hose and drained and refilled coolant with OEM coolant. And finally drained old tranny fluid and changed the tranny filter, the fluid was blacker than my oil :/

Just installed these today, my next step is sound deaden and a 4 channel amp.

Polk DB6501 fit perfect with lots of room to spare with the IAP Performance speaker adapters.

Took today's awesome weather to wash the last few months of crap from Clovis New Mexico off the car, doesn't matter if it rains all day tomorrow, the car will still be cleaner than it was
Going to replace both front fender liners, change the oil/oil filter and clean out the APS air filter as well as detail the interior (again, cleaning out the crap that flies around the air in Clovis!) before I tuck it away in storage and don't see it for at least a year (someone else will be keeping it fresh for me every few weeks).

Also did fender well harness tuck.

There is like literally a foot of slack in the harness!

Gotta finish making the 2nd bracket to hold the fuse box. Pretty simple just time consuming.

finished my little list below this weekend but finally took it for a drive today with everything completed!!
rear diff and tranny fluid changed to motul 300
whiteline rear endlinks in
front swaybar collars added and they removed the 'clunk'
drop in kn air filter
kb short shifter
good ridge SS lines put in
brake fluid burped and topped off due to ^^
swapped out 2 wheel studs that were toast

it was a great experience and the feeling of accomplishment was more than expected, partially because i saved most likely around 1k in labor

cheers!

Yesterday I installed my front and rear eibach sway bars with kart boys endlinks. Also installed my JPM alcantara brake boot to match my shift boot. Twas a cold and lonely day but a frozen butt was well worth those fun (and flat) loops around a round about!

Just wait. I'm not trying to be negative Nancy or anything, it takes a while but it is a proven fact. Why do you think cobb and aem intakes use dry filters

i've probably seen a dozen or so people have to buy new MAfs after they drop in oiled filters.


and i checked the pressure in all my tires, it pulled left till the tires get heated up then it tracks true. and i put the front end back together on my jeep and drove it around the blick only to notice its not pouring oil out between the engine and trans.... oh well its getting replaced by a 5.0 4x4 cherokee lol
