Thanks man. Unfortunately it's in storage right now in Oregon while I'm living in Japan. A year to go. I'm sure I'll be collecting parts to make quite an installation post when I get back.

Maintenance and repairs. I feel like it has been my life when it comes to this car.

68k. It's all small maintenance things or minor repairs. I'm thinking the axle seal went out after going from a wet cold environment all its life to dry and altitude in storage for a year down to warm and moderate after about 16 hours of driving. Lots of changes.

Cherry blossoms are a big deal in the prefecture that I lived in. I figured it only made sense to call her the Japanese name for cherry blossom.

Some new pictures. Started my road trip in mountains of central Oregon and ended at the beaches of southern California.

JDM goods:

Non-STI center console w/ HVAC controls in C.



JDM Forester owner's manual. I found gold in the glove box of the Forester I got these other parts from. The junk yard ended up letting me take it for free.




05 non-STI tail lights. Brushed parts rather than full chrome more like 06 Impreza tail lights vs 07. Matches up to the USDM harness. Decided not to put these in, and am going to sell them when my shipment gets back to the states.

Put the spacers on and they looked great, but I had to take them off because the slots in the back of the OEM wheels aren't deep enough to fit the OEM lugs and nuts. Looks like I need new wheels before I lower it.
