edwing206 Yeah I actually asked my friend and he said they have the Flat Top 6 (which is actually what I have, I thought I had the 4) for $70 shipped but with no locks. The locks are on Amazon for $17.00. So the total will be close to $90 after everything is said and done, which is a great price if you ask me. Let me know if you want it and I'll ask my friend for the website, PM me!

Currently I have only the snowboard racks on the car as I don't bike during the fall or winter that much (I installed fork mounts on the basket to carry up to 3 road bikes) and I switched to '99 RS 2.5 wheels with brand new tires. I'll post up a picture soon hopefully. I hope Santa brings me a rear sway bay this year!

The roof basket is a Rola Cargo Basket and the ski snowboards racks are Thule Flatop 4. The basket is $185 shipped from etrailer.com and I got the racks for $40 shipped from a website that my friend knows. I'll ask him if they have anymore.

I've done a few things to my Foz. I got a roof basket to haul stuff around, can't wait to go camping this summer! And I got some WRX wheels. I'd like some aggressive wheels but I'm saving my money for college and whatnot so that will come later. I also installed some HID projectors, I think I'm the first SF with them. Probably not but whatever!
Hope you like!

edwing206 Mike the timing belt was easy peazy! Just follow the guide that Erich posted and you'll be good. If you know someone local who has done it before ask them for help, buy them a six pack and pizza lol. Its hard for me to pay someone to do stuff on my car than my brother and I can do (he was a certified Toyota tech for 4 years do that helps a lot). If you can do it then great, go ahead, if not there is no shame in paying someone to do it for you.

Thanks for the kind words theFoz99! Your car is looking great, Im jealous of your get more Gs Subaru ball! As for the rear WRX seats you just need to switch the old bracket from your Foz rear seats and onto the new and improved WRX seats. The difference is amazing! So soft and comfortable, I love it!

My brother and I did my t-belt in about 3 hours as well. That thread is amazing that pigboat_2 posted. So easy and clear. Also, check some of the threads about tips for t-belt replacements. I was scared, but its not hard. Just take your time.

02foresterL Seems like a lot of work, I have no idea if mine was ever done, nothing showed up on the carfax and I'm way past the 105 months. I'd rather have someone who somewhat knew what they were doing help me so I don't mess anything up.
