Default Shiro-ko, my new car.

Well, the Black RS was officially sold today and I am now the owner of a brand new White Legacy Wagon. I am already sporting the 17's and am quite happy with it after a nice drive up to Whistler. This will be a fun long term project car. If anyone is selling any Legacy parts please let me know.

L-club....good one. Does that mean "I" stands for Idiot? "L" for loser?
If anyone has tips or ideas for how I should proceed with my little project please let me know. For now I've got the 17's from my black car. I will get a nice smoked tint on 5 windows as well as a spoiler. I'm not sure if I should go Subie stock (big one) or aftermarket. After that I'm just going to do a few cheap but good mods, springs (rid the fender gap), short shift, and rear sway bar. Any ideas would be welcome. Also, need some new i-club stickers...

You should try contacting the guy that works at SPO. He shows up to NW annual meets. I'm sure he knows about the mods on the SPO legacy wagon and sedan. I forget what his name is though... ask SubieGal or the Oregon/NW crew.

Congrats!

I just took some non-digital lics this afteroon after washing it. If someone wants to loan me their scanner or take some digi-pics and post them no prob. But I am low tech. I need help.
I have not had any trouble with running. I was taking it easy...on the engine...on the way up but I took a few speedy corners. Not even close to rubbing.
I am now looking at my Legacy book from Japan for ideas.

Now you can transport ALL your honeys in style. We need to reupholster the back so when you fold the seats down, it's all plush red velvet with pillows. And a big bottle of Courvosier velcro'd to the C pillar!!!

5zigen: Unfortunately, I think that the rex would be a little out of my price range. 650 bills a month just on the loan is gonna be tight for me....... Although, I do have something else in mind

Must have mods for the Sea to Sky are, front strut bar, rear 20mm Whiteline adjustable rear sway bar, and STI engine and tranny mounts. The rear spoiler helps keep water off the rear window also.


Maybe I'll see you next week. I'll be back in the middle of the week.


PS 17" Toyo TI-S Suck in the snow!!

I'm also a white wagon

Congrats Jamie!! So what class will that put you in for autoX? Hope you get done your break-in before the championships!

Do you have any trouble with those rims on the new body? I hear they have more room up there

T-REX, in Whistler today. Was working this morning. I'll PM you my number.
Ken, Shiroko has been chosen, Shiro chan is a possiblity. I may change it...I suppose it is more friendly sounding right. But I don't know my baby very well yet so I will keep it this way for now.
My car does not rub, no problems. I doubt I will break it in before the next auto-x. But I will go watch.
