So, the mods finally started tonight, figure I'd start a journal.

old DD (Altima) and the new to me hotness Forester..


First mods, will get pictures up soon!

Installed a Class III 2" Curt Hitch tonight.
removed the mufflers and it made it much easier
touched up some scratches
double sided tape between hitch and heat shields
gaps filled with RTV
plastic-coat sprayed the bolts/nuts
hoping for no rust for a long time
easy install for the most part..

Debadged the hatch

LL Beans are not for the faint at heart, that damn LL bean badge had a lot of 3m tape behind it
waxed the areas, waiting fun better weather for a full wax job
love the new look!

Anyone know where to get factory touch up paint? I figure the dealer will have some, I want to fill some chips in on the body.
:woohoo:

Blacked the headlights tonight and the grille, it's sorta turning into a non turbo version of RAPTR's FXT (great minds think alike), at somepoint I may get the sports grille and yank the badge as well, I also added LED strips under the headlights while I was in there, it looks sweet, will post pictures tomorrow or soon of everything...it will be nice to do a photo shoot of my STi and Foz since they look styled so similarly.








next up (in transit) is a STi suspension swap..:banana:

Dude......nice to see you over here! Looking forward to pics of the new ride! I testdrove a CPO Tribeca for Kirkham 2 weeks ago, dunno if he pulled the trigger on it or what.

Hope to see you out at BeaveRun this summer! Still have your zzyzx coilovers? We need to make a change....badly.

will add in pics, it's kinda of hard when they make you post so many times first..

the STi suspension should arrive today...maybe will try to install it tomorrow night but it might have to wait till next weekend.

I sold them this winter to another local Subie guy who is getting serious. :icon_frown: I am the region solo chair now and won DOY last year so this year I want to lay low and just run things, drive other peoples cars and fun around in the Foz in ST.

man I can't wait till I have some free time so I can black out the center grille. Would love to do the headlights too but still don't have the cojones to bake and separate my headlights.

Update, I haven't even aligned the forester but it feels great, a lot of nice comments from people at work. I just have to remember I can't just run stuff over like I've done with the stock suspension.
