Counting late Friday night as Saturday (and recognizing I am posting this late being as it's early AM Sunday) I installed new cloth visors to replace factory plastic, installed Auto-Dimming Compass Mirror, and test fit the Forester Auto-Dimming Approach Lighting mirrors in the passenger door mirror housing.

Gave my car its first long detail on Saturday. After only 20,000 miles, not even 3 and a half hours was long enough to get it perfect.

It's a love/hate thing cleaning Subarus. I want it to look nice but I hate getting close to my front (and even rear) bumper and seeing how sand-blasted the paint looks.

2 new stock tires under 'warranty'. 30% ceramic tint all around. long, but eventful day.


happy with the level of tint and heat rejection, would love darker, but trying to keep it conservative.

mounted to the tow point up front? or centered on the bumper? i really disliked the tow point plate mounts for a while but they've really grown on me. mine uses the factory holes in the bumper.

^Ouch!

This was a couple days ago but I installed a Alcantara shift boot with dark red stitching from Zealous Interiors and a new Cobb shift knob (excuse the dog hair, I have two huge retired racing greyhounds, lol):



Also installed a matching Alcantara ebrake boot but wasn't able to get it perfect because I need some speed nuts to get it finished.

I love the Cobb shift knob! Feels great.

epoxied a niteize magnet to a spot behind my steering wheel for a better and more out of the way AP mount, while still maintaining ease of use and functionality.

Got my raised springs done at my buddy's shop, now I can get into my driveway!



So today I put on Rally Armor mud flaps, Circuit Motorsports clutch brace, Shift Solutions shift stop, Hella Sharptone horns, and a Grimmspeed license plate relocation kit with the Nameless plate delete.

Found some **** for my subies at the junkyard. A replacement handle for my turbo leggy and a kartboy shortshifter out of an rs. Short shifter was $2.70 so there went a majority of the year's parts budget.



Installed another junkyard find today. An old school compass pack. Finally my interior has that XT/Leone feel.


I ran the outside temp sensor over a year ago when the car didn't have an engine. In case anyone needs to know tap into the green/yellow speed sensor wire on the ten pin rightmost gauge cluster harness in order for the temp and speed indicator to function.

While messing around to figure out how to adjust the settings I ended up opening a Subaru time space portal!



It was pretty sweet. I ended up banging some hot interdimensional alien chicks but had to come back to earth since I really needed to mow the lawn.



Back home safe and sound at 4200 ft.

you take that back..... whats your deal man??



Thats the part of the door that ran into a cement pillar.. so that area is partly constructed with bondo, I believe they used.. wasnt my call, happened when the car was under the care of my pops.. he left it in nuetral , door open, rolled back and crunch..
I sanded the area down as much as I could before I sanded away the door. but as you can see, Jerk, it looks I think a lot better.

At 38k miles on my 16 wrx, I just installed my catless invidia j pipe and flashed the cobb stage 2 OTS map. (Yes I know the map is for CATTED jpipes but I plan to get a protune soon). I already had the invidia q300 catback. So far, the car runs surprisingly smooth....cant wait to see the difference between the cobb ots map vs a protune! THIS CAR IS FAST

Replaced the broken driver's side door handle and tumbler on the 93 turbo leggy.

Broke the window switch assembly trying to clean the contacts (the windows rolled up super slow). Went to two junkyards and found a window switch w/90k.

Pulled a decent set of all four door seals from the same donor legacy. Installed the driver's side door seal, got the new switch working.

Installed a Prosport mechanical boost gauge in the turbo leggy since the piece of **** Prosport electronic boost gauge crapped out a long time ago. Prosports suck but hopefully the mechanical gauge will work longer than the electronic gauge.

Duty C solenoid on the turbo leggy is going out so I need to do that one of these days...
