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.
(if this is a repost, please delete it)

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:

I have never used claybar before, but seen it mentioned on here a time or 2 after I claybar it, what should I do? polish? or not?
polish is optional

or you can just wax it

ok thanks for the advise, I for sure want to keep it shiny after all this trouble. if i ever paint again the Fozzie goes under a plastic sheet first.
no problem...enjoy when you wash and wax it:biggrin:

this is what I usually do my exercise during weekend.

polish (meguiar 105 and 205) optional depends on paint condition
wax(2 layers, 1 layer and another layer next day)
