no seriously its good stuff i hit a tree then took out an unexpecting mailbox and it didn't bend or dent anything the tree was about 8" in diameter and i hit it hard about 15mph (i was in my lake area trying to get my sunglasses out of the back seat :lol: ) it hit the part of the bumper where turn signal is(on the outside of the mounting bracket which is the weakest point), the tree made the front of the Subaru jump up and over right into the mailbox and as for the tail light guards i tried to bend and twist em and didn't get them to move more than millimeters without almost cracking the mounts of the light itself

the T bar that the shift linkage bolts to on the tranny (moves in and out and is connected to the tranny by a pin) may not have a bushing. mine did not all it had was a fat bolt through it that was way too small. so all my gears felt like neutral...

i cut the old bolt off (because i just bolted the tranny up and the bolt was put in backwards so i couldn't pull it out) pulled the linkage re-drilled the linkage holes to match the new bolt which wasn't as wide as the t bar hole then i cut a piece of copper pipe to sleeve the bolt.

now everything is tight aside from the play from the tranny itself which isn't much at all..
