Put a 15 sti rack in my 02 wagon. Also put in 500hp Insane Shafts front axles while I was in there. Fixed my rough shifting, and grinding sounds during deceleration issues. I'm getting closer to having the car the way I want it but I doubt I'll ever get there.

Debated on installing the Aeroflow Dynamics side skirt extensions I have in the garage, cant decide on installing now and pull them to wrap them later or waiting to wrap then install...

Lol, for me temperature (in or out) varies what rattles and how bad. After taking my passenger door panel off the 2nd time chasing one of them I just said **** it. I do enjoy the days where the stars align and it doesnít rattle.

Got the engine walnut blasted , EGR / TGV deletes and a pro tune. Car has about 67,250 miles and the amount of carbon buildup was crazy.

It’s funny how my newer 19 WRX limited with softer suspension rattles a lot more than my 16 STI with literally zero rattle.

I've got an idea where most are coming from. The door panels will be coming apart soon for a speaker install so I will do the electrical tape on all plastic snaps trick and secure anything which could wiggle loose. Then I'm going to turn my focus to the rear deck.

I’ve pulled the rear deck out 3x and can’t stop the rattles. I even put a layer of roofing rubber between the panel and the deck. Smiled huge as I backed out of the garage, by the time I was out the driveway it was back! I just turn up the radio and open up the throttle and it seems to go away!!!!

Cleaned her up this morning, shot the undercarriage with some black Rustoleum spray where I removed some fasteners last weekend to install the Kartboy endlinks. Cleaned the inner glass and interior too. Looks great, and excited to take her out again maybe next weekend.

Replaced a leaking Koni strut, front control arms. Also replaced the incorrect perrin front sway bar with a whiteline one because perrin said it is correct for an 09 WRX. It could work for a wide body but not the narrow body. Added whiteline front links. Much happier.

Took her for a wash and did a full photoshoot. Just uploaded some pictures to the Hawkeye Thread in the members photos gallery section.

Not sure if this counts, maybe it is a what my subie did to me...

I had to re-attach my charge pipe to my intercooler on the side of the turnpike. Thankfully it below off as I was getting into the right lane and allowing me to pull off to the side.

A little unsettling as this could have easily happened while I was in the left lane.

This weekend I installed my tail as turn signal modules as well as the LED reverse lights, and then today had my Invidia q300 CBE installed.

It's not really a "what did you do today thing" but anyway.

I've completely refreshed my Subaru Outback 2.5L 5MT from 2000 past 2 months.
Got the engine out, did headgaskets, valve seals, belts etc, changed front axles, new wheel bearings, forester turbo front brakes etc. Yesterday was the first time driving it around after 2 months of hard work

I looked at it as it sits at my work cranking but not starting because life would be too easy to have a car that works all the time

Very nicely done!

Hit any snags along the way?

What made you replace the front half shafts?

I got one of these new Milwaukee USB lamps ($50 on ebay) to mount onto my garage's metal trash can to illuminate the front of my STI while doing quick wipe downs. Very cool, very bright, good magnets.
