It sound like you're going to have the Outback a long time, with all the plans you have in mind for it! :cool:

Try to get a before & after picture so we can see the difference the front spacer makes. :wink:

Finally got my radio setup sorted out!

Pioneer DEH P6000UB iPod interface head unit + DIN security pocket. Also plasti-dipped my shifter surround. :biggrin: Right now I'm banging my head against the wall for the $4.5k that was spent on maintenance on this thing alone last year, and the $~3k that will be spent this summer on the engine overhaul. I could have gotten a FXT for that + the trade in on this car before any of it happened. Thanks, dad.

ANYWHO, my rant aside, here is a pretty picture. lol

The fake wood-grain trim did require some MODding to fit around the pocket, I'm not quite sure why. It worked out fine though. So far, I like the black surround too. It was the only silver painted interior piece, so I thought it looked odd. Now it matches the rest of the black interior accents. Looks sorta 'JDM' too I guess? :lol:

Meh, I don't really like it either, but it looks better than being all black on this car. That panel is just too big for that. I've seen them painted black before and it wasn't pretty.

The Wood/black though, gives it some sort of euro feel. Not sure how, but that's what I think when I see it.

Found the pic I was looking for.... OEM black trim on a JDM B4. Looks okay in the gloss... I actually think gunmetal would look okay if it were clearcoated. Oh, and notice that his handbrake is in the right side of the car, like mine. I have to reach across the cupholder, so SOA obviously just cheaped out and gave us the same center console and E-brake location as the JDM cars. :lol:



Oh, and for the hell of it, here's the other thing that they cheaped out on, and we didn't get. :evilatyou:
