Thought it would be fun to start a thread on everyday things we do here and there to our beloved Subarus. The weather is getting nicer, so I'm sure we will all be outside more tinkering on our cars.

Today has been a busy day for me! Got my Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 tires in yesterday from Tirerack for the Sti and had them mounted and balanced today by a real cool guy off of Nasioc. If anyone wants his info in the PNW PM me. He runs a legit business out of his home doing tire stuff n such, for a really good deal. But let me tell ya, these tires are STICKY!!! They pick up gravel everywhere but they are SOOOoo nice! It feels like a different car

When I got back from joyriding the STi in it's new tires, I washed the Forester (for the second time this week) and finally got around to hand waxing it. Looks pretty, but boy is there a lot of bumps and bruises on it!

What did you guys do to the subarus today?? :biggrin:

Washed her for the first time this, I can see every nick in the paint (again) but can confirm that it still is, in fact, dark green.......and this week, it is exactly 7 years old.

I finally installed the $50 hood struts, if that qualifies as anything to cheer about......only took me over a month since I snapped the head off one of the bolts and had to try an extractor and then wound up retapping the hole when the stud would not come out......having to purchase a set of extractors AND the PB Blaster AND the tapping set........which I'll probably NEVER use again.....sigh.

Now, to find another challenge on the to think on that for awhile.
