  1. What did you do to your subie today?

    General Forum
    Sunday, I installed the missing right side baffle under the front fender, and gave my SG a much-needed bath/wax.

  3. ('06-'08) Grampa Fozz ('07 X Every Day Driver)

    I was working on a bunch of bicycle projects today... But while I was doing that, I figured paint could be drying. I pulled my C-pillar trims off... And painted them black.
  4. ('03-'05) Install Notes: Koni Inserts and Swift Springs

    Suspension and Handling
    Just did the Swift/Koni job today on my '07, and found pretty much exactly what the OP said. Trimmed about 62-ish mm front and rear. No spacers, but ran it at speed through some deep intersection gutters and such without topping out. I may dial back my adjusters a little after re-reading this...

    Doing the Koni inserts and Swift springs. Hardest part so far is drilling out the bottom of the strut housing hole to 1/2".

    This sticker should be good for a couple of smiles per gallon, right?

    Swift Springs already arrived, but the strut inserts won't be here until later this week. In the meantime, I pulled the front bumper off, and replaced the leaky headlight assemblies with Sport units. That took very little time, so next I installed some aftermarket "billet" grilles that I had...
  8. LED - DRL upgrade/ high beam

    Lighting and Electrical
    If I understand the way the DRL's work, it's because your LED replacements don't have as much resistance as the old halogen bulbs did. The DRL's only drop in brightness because they are wired in parallel with a capacitor with a lower resistance than the bulb - the current follows the path of...

    Won't have time to do the headlight swap until Sunday, probably. Will post pics after. Swift springs and Koni strut inserts are on their way, so I can likely work on that next weekend. Stoked!

    After reading @NinoS ' own build journal for his '05, I feel like a ventilation filter clean/change is also in my immediate future.

    Bought my Forester three weeks or so back, but this last weekend saw the first round of (minor) updates. The first couple of things were done at Pronto Brake and Muffler in Oxnard, CA (my brother has worked there for years). At some point, a cheap generic replacement muffler had been attached...
  12. What was your First Subaru?

    General Forum
    Like the OP, my first Subie was a 360 Sambar van. Mine had been custom painted a silver-blue metallic when it showed up in the driveway back in the mid-'80s. Soon thereafter, a white '69 showed up as a parts car, though my brother and I drove both briefly. Before the Sambar showed up, my folks...
