  3. Modz Pics
    I got bored and decided to do the Rolls Royce starlight headliner the other day. Was super easy and took maybe 5 hours total that i spanned after work in 2 days. Easy & cheap just time consuming.. here are pics! I also dyed the headliner black so it fits better!
  4. Lighting and Electrical
    My new #1 rules for buying any vehicle—examine and test drive it around dusk so it's light enough to check the body for defects but dark enough to experience the dashboard lighting. I lost my beautiful 2000 Subaru Forester to water damage from Hurricane Idea and wanted to replace it with one...

  8. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    I've already made a financial mistake buying the tinted subiespeed lights. They're nice but illegal in my state. I lost approx $500 because of it. I just want to make sure I'm doing everything right before I get my new tires/wheels. I own a 2016 base model that needs to get the tires changed...
  9. Brakes
    2017 Forester, just checked the rear brakes, they're at 3mm, fronts are at 8mm. really! Called the dealer for an estimate on rear brakes, he said the rears do wear out faster because the pads start out thinner. Rear pads start out at 8mm, fronts start out at 10mm. But still, assuming the laws of...
