Crossed the 260,000 mile threshold with Slynki and gave her a congratulatory oil change.

Finally painted the interior trim. I made some mistakes, but it looks a hell of a lot better. You can also see my latest addition, the snowbrush mod.

Exhaust fell down this morning while transporting furniture, got it repaired, then discovered a burnt-out stoplight which was promptly changed.

There were lesser discounts as well. I saved a little over $50 on my purchase.

Dropped off a $1500 check to get the body shop started on ordering parts for the repair. Once they get the parts they estimate 5-6 days until they're done.

At least I have my other boxy friend to drive until then ('00 Cherokee)

My epic parking job last night.



Seriously though, this happened last night when I got home b/c there were no other available parking spaces and I wasn't about to drive around my complex to find some other parking spot 3-4 buildings away and take that spot from someone else who live close by.
The VW you see here was parked damn near on top of the line. The other vehicle you can't see is some company's van and the douche-tard decided it would be a good idea to park half sideways in his spot and crossing over the line making the spot in between the cars ridiculously tiny. Well, I wasn't about to let THAT stop me......so I made it happen/work.


(Also, the VW hasn't moved in MONTHS so I wasn't worried about those people trying to come out in the morning and get in their car and go).

Different paint scheme for my stock 06 tail lamps, they were originally chromey. Now they look like STi tail lamps. I'll post a pic of them installed on the Forester later.

Before (like original, except I had cleaned all the old Night shade off with gasoline):



After:



Better pictures to come.

Smile Painted the winter wheels

Just got the winter tire/wheel package from TireRack yesterday, Ganeral Altimax Arctics on steel wheels, painted the wheels silver today, they remind me of 1960's era European wheels.
