update

so had to replace the slave cylinder due to seals.

today is wash and wax day

ive ordered the kartboy endlinks and some new bushings for both front and rear swaybars.

i ended up getting a set of 05 tail lights from a very nice gentleman for $40 and they look great. i will still probably get some 08 sports but i had to get something now. the stock tails were letting in a lot of water and im not sure where it was getting in. plus this buys me some time so i can get the endlinks/bushings as well as some drag dr 38 wheels for my summer tires

so a slight update. i messed up the order for new kartboy endlinks. turned out to be a good thing because i found out kartboy makes replacement bushings for them. So i will be replacing all 4 endlink bushings and the sway bar bushings. while i have the sway bars out i will be repainting them black as well. please dont mind the dirt....i live in the woods on a dirt road

I will have the wheels and all season tires installed next month by this time as well

wow so after trying a bunch of places, I eventually got the konig myths through performance tire plus. discount tire says 3-5 days on their website but it seems a bunch of wheels are on back order and could take at least 6 to 8 weeks....possibly longer. I didnt want to wait that long.....patience is a virtue i dont have much of lol.

I ran out of time this weekend with schedule change at work but i ordered some 3m window seal off amazon. next thursday or friday i should be able to get my driver front headlight done. valley subaru wanted $420 for one headlight. Id rather try my hand at it then fork over that much. 

spoiler will be installed monday.

oh and to update, i have no more clunk. whiteline sway bar bushings and kartboy replacement endlink bushings did the trick and were an easy install

 

still havent figured out where i want to put the SSI sticker....it doesnt help that im not a sticker guy. I already want to debadge the trunk lid. i will take some pics of before and after spoiler install as well as current wheel/tire set and the new ones. hopefully all this takes place by next sunday!

currently also scouting out a forester sti non dccd 6 speed swap. may have to wait a while on that one though. I have a bunch of house things i need to do like rebuild my deck, new wood flooring in the kitchen and build a shed

They’re certainly different! Personally the factory silver is where I’m at, but it’s your vehicle and you’ve got to be the one that loves looking at it, driving it and being seen driving it! 

Keep the glamour shots coming, something up close, looking down the side of the vehicle in full sun would bring out the blue in the rims I reckon.

my phone camera doesnt do them justice. they look much better in person. in bright light the color is the same as the wrb. in shade or night they look darker.

i love the look of them!

might be a while for next set of major mods. which is block heater/flex fuel and 6 speed. ive pretty much decided on a jdm forester 6 speed non dccd so i can keep my current hubs.
