Installed some Kartboy differential outrigger bushings. They've been just laying on my floor since May...I've been lazy.

Cleaned it, dehazed my very slightly hazed headlights, took off the fog guards, fixed my hellas(corroded connection), and found out that magic erasers work wonders for cleaning wheels but leave weird shiny marks on the side plastics.

Turned my Forester EEEEVIIILLL and replaced its "spark" with MEGATRONS.
Seriously though, I replaced the battery with an Interstate Mega-tron plus 35

sorry for the nerd humour, couldn't resist.

Looked at the calendar. I bought my 2004 Forester new in November 2003. I've owned it for exactly 9 years.

Also took my Forester in for some maintenance (private shop, not dealer service department). Found out I'm starting to have a head gasket leak. Looks like it's just an external leak right now, so will monitor for the time being.

Autozone friends & family discount time, bought some Trans-X, 75W-90 gear oil for the diffs, a 10" socket extension to finally change those spark plugs , and some serpentine belts, one of them a 26" 5-rib belt to delete my power steering. Driving in the city with no power steering should be very interesting indeed.
