That's awesome! I'm still trying to figure out when I can go for another road trip with this car. Wife and I went to Canada from NY last year and it was awesome.

74k and still running strong except for the A/C lol

Smashed into something in my garage and gouged the front bumper cover along with warping/smashing the plastic on the bottom. Bought an oem front bumper cover from the dealership and it is currently at a paint shop getting painted (just the bumper... planning on trying to swap it myself). All while I am in the middle of trying to sell it

Changed my spark plugs in the old bugeye for the first time today. It took me 35 mins what a tight fit lol. I put in ngk laser platinum and the plugs I took out were ngk iridium. The plugs looked excellent best plugs i ever pulled from a motor. But since i was there i threw in the lasers. I can notice quite a bit of difference in my low end for some reason. The plugs i pulled were gapped at .025 i looked at a bunch of threads and i went with .030 im super happy had to have my 12 year old daughter get the last bolt out of the battery side for me my hands were to big lol. But all and all not to bad a job can probably do it much faster next time.

All fairly superficial stuff so far, but still with eager affection, heh:

. Washed
. Fixed/redid the mounts for my 12" sub box in the trunk; one too many spirited turns and take-offs caused it to come loose last weekend.
. Scheduled the ceramic coating appt for next weekend.
. Planned out the vinyl Decepticon logo placement, to go on once I debadge and get the ceramic coating done.

Kind of a bitter sweet moment..

Washed the car and plugged a tire.....

Went with the Mrs and the doggo to wash the car. Went across the street to the ice cream place and heard a funky noise while going through the parking lot. I checked it out and found this bad Jackson slammed into my tire. Got my ice cream first because no one messes with my ice cream time, Slapped the spare on, drove home and plugged the tire. Back to ‘new’.... sort of.

Received my used AP in the mail, updated it and plugged it into the car but resisted tuning! Another 3k miles before I want to install it so this will be hard because that will probably take 6 months!

Took her for the 500 mile oil change on the new engine, only 500 more to go before she gets tuned again.

I'll tell ya, it's pretty damn tough keeping it under 4k rpms and under 6PSI. Luckily it's only taking me 2 weeks to get to 1k miles.

Washed with my prime day purchases (Meguiars Gold Class Wash and microfiber cloths). It's so difficult to keep the car nice with a nearly 5 year old and 3.5 year old. At least the mark that my son left on the front quarter panel when he opened the Sienna door and hit the WRX seemed to wash out and is less noticeable when clean. Also realized that I enjoy driving the WRX a whole lot more than the Sienna and most of the other vehicles that I have had.
