This might be the most boring update, to date. Tires are in, on and ready to go, the process was painless and convenient as ever.

Yes, there is a little bit of a bulge to the sidewall, but going 10mm wider thats to be expected.

Picture time.







The weights the use are interesting, they are smaller and not the same giant lumps. And yes, I'm missing a mudflap, its in the trunk, the bolt ripped through the flap and tore it on the inside portion of the flap. I'll figure something out soon.

Pictures.

They are soo damn quite on the highway. absolutely love them. I also feel like the tires provide me with more driving confidence and the peace of mind that I won't wake up to a flat is nice.

Its very simple, find a squirt bottle, I had a near empty bottle of windex, fill it with soapy warm water, then douse the fog light, and clean it real well. After that take that same water and soak the light again, and the adhesive side of the film, note the more water the better, you cannot have too much. Apply to light. Utilize a hair drier or something along the lines of a hear gun to help apply.

I would suggest making a paper template of your light with about half an inch on each side as some room in case you mess you, or need to stretch or move the film some.

Only do one side at a time, they need attention and time to complete. I used a credit card as a squeegee to push the rest of the water and bubbles out. Also, the heat is needed to help the film stretch around the curvature of the light, and the squeegee helps flatten out too.

Overall it just takes time and needs patience.

Well, today I took of that massive roof rack, why? well, Its killing my gas millage and at the slow rate that gas seems to be increasing I cannot stand to waste a drop. Thats okay, I jerry rigged a ceiling hanging system in my garage. There are open joists and rafter beams up there so why not? Also used my tie downs to ratchet the basket up, easy squeezee.


Also, installed the hella supertones that I had in my garage today, yes it took me 4 hours with a parts run, BUT I didn't have a wiring harness. I had to make it from scratch. I do need to touch up some parts of the harness, but they are water proofed, they just look bad right now.

I tell you what, they are loud as ever when they aren't covered and hidden. I found them to be too loud so I hide them behind the bumper cover, that and I had no where else to put them. This did give me a chance to modify my light bar and bend it further back towards the a/c radiator, therefore, one of my two hella spot lights is now level, the other is a little high, but if I aim them on top of one another then they fill a decent amount of light, I'm happy with it for now.

Sorry, no pictures as I was in a rush to get them done. Its still cold here in Nebraska and I was getting cold.

I was more leaning to only do one fog light at a time, it should be one piece for each fog light, depending on what film you got. Mine was a giant 1.5 by 1 foot piece of film that I had to cut accordingly.

Well, about a year ago my drivers side window two weeks ago I bought a used window reg. with the track, arm and everything, it got here yesterday so today I decided was the day to put it in.

Well, I got going took the switch out and made sure that everything looked okay with it. I was very surprised when the switch had a burned out circuit.

pics to show what I did.

Alright, I can provide you with pictures for how this looks in a 2000 forester. I can assume that its close to the same but cannot honestly say. If worst comes to it, you can take of the door cover and test things relatively easily.








the drivers door are the two one the top left of that connector,


this is the switch bank, upside down. The top right most corner and the pin just to the left of that are the switches pin.

my board had an issue with it.

so I patched it, kind of.



This patch cause the drivers window to work, but the other windows do not now. I will be getting a new board.

I also had an issue with the window moving in weird ways. I noticed that bolts were missing





the bottom two had fallen out and the left one was loose and hanging in by threads. tightened them all up, good to go.

Also, got a new pillar from the same seller so I put that in as well today.









those picture show why that pillar was sooooo messed up.

Thanks for looking.

Picked up an 18mm rear sway bar today for $20, I'd say its a good deal. Need to find my stock intake. I want to go back to stock, mechanics wise, so I can autocross in the stock class. Then I will add the RSB and hopefully lower it, and go from there.

Sadly though, I do have the intent to sell the Foz this summer. I drove a wrx, and sti a few weeks ago and am convinced that I need a turbo now.

NEED a turbo.

I also ordered the correct window parts, should be here on monday or tuesday.

Hopefully I can get my car all squared away and ready for the auto cross season, starts on the First of April.

stoked.

I've really want a white car, I'm tired of black. I also want a manual. I'm tired of autos. To get my car up to an acceptable degree that I would like, would cost 3-4 grand.

I could get a newer, younger fxt for just a little more then that, with mine sold prior too, of course.

I've been trying my hardest to find some local WRX struts, just the shocks to drop my foz before I part ways with it, but no one has anything near me.

If I did get an FXT it would be as soon as I graduate, which means I would be making a full time wage, working twice as much, meaning mo money... step 4. coilovers? step 5. ???? step 6. profit! :D

ha ha
