Hey Mark, thanks for that dome light it is tons brighter then the old one I had in.

This is what I was going to show you yesterday.

My solution to defeating darkness in the hatch area.
You end up with this:


Pull down the plastic trim piece in the rear hatch and locate where you want your holes.

I used two spots that has some casting marks on them.

These are the bulbs I used for this.


I can't remember off the top of my head what size they were though.

Now just dremel out the holes slowly to make sure the fit is just right.


Pop the lights in add some hot glue, tape everything I'm place and wire it to the rear hatch light.


And there ya go a great extra, OEM looking light source.

Fort Carson? I would imagine the subie scene being huge in Colorado. Pence was a huge success as always and the weather cooperated too which was a relief.

I'd be lying to you all if I said I've been super excited about the STI lately

I've had it for all of two months and I'm wondering if I'll actually keep it long term.

wife needed a new car and talked her into a 2013 outback, satin white pearl. went with the 2.5l, svt trans. gets 32 mpg hwy. leater, hands free nav, built in bluetooth and hands free phone. sirrius built in. rides nice and tracks nice like a subaru. cvt is odd but will get used to that. a bit underpowered compared to her 3.0l v6 highlander which got 22 hwy.

i'll bring to the next CnC if she lets me.

Good work mark. I may have convinced the girl who was with me at the Pence meet to trade her Altima for a BRZ.

Two of my good friends in college, one of which had no interest in cars whatsoever, and the other was a Honduh fanboi, both drive Subaru Legacys now. Just from hearing me ramble on about how Subarus were the ****.

There is a possibility I might be selling the STI. If you know someone that wants a very very low mileage 04 that's completely stock and super clean let me know!

Price is a little negotiable especially if it's a local sale.

I was at the Pence meet for a little bit but being it looks so stock you probably walked right past and didn't think anything of it.
