removed, sanded, and painted my rear wiper arm.
removed fog light protectors
fabricated a front license plate delete. It looks like a ghetto version of the subtle solutions delete. no logo just black. Looks good until you get within half a yard of it, then you can notice a minor bending issue.

To respond to Tuned200

It wasnt fully TiC's fault. I was to blame for part of the mix up. To make a long story sort of short....I gave them my home address instead of my PO BOX. which is no good for USPS shipping. I gave them my PO BOX the next day and they said they would send it out to the PO BOX but I dont think they did because I waited 2 weeks after giving them the correct address and never recieved my package.

I waited for 2 weeks before contacting them about not getting my part. When I did finally decide to email TiC and ask where it was, they fixed the problem very quickly, they sent it the next day and provided me with a tracking number (i never got a tracking number for the first package).

They have great customer service and I definently recommend buying from them! So like I said, I screwed up first which caused them to screw up(I think).

I still <3 TiC. Its alllll goooooood :Banane35:

On topic: The push button thing is fun. I did it on my old jeep RIP. except I used a light switch and hid it under the dash.

Changed the front o2 sensor on my 2001 S Premium.

For those of you with SF's and CAI's---If you are changing out your front o2 sensor go at it from the engine bay, not underneath the car.

I had a way easier time getting it out from up top, reaching down into the engine bay. I am lowered on swifts so that helped me reach it. AND FYI I didnt use a sensor socket set AT ALL. I used a 22 mm wrench and a breaker bar (GETER DONEEEE thanx BRO)

Results = PO420 is gone, gas mileage improved already, no more running rich and backfiring. The front o2 sensor wasnt throwing a code but boy was it fouled up, white, black, grey, it was jacked.

I love my Bosch windshield wipers, but the o2 sensors are CRAP.

I got my windows tinted Tuesday:biggrin:, blew a hole in my upper radiator hose Wednesday:icon_mad:, put in a new hose and rad cap today.

I thought tinted windows are supposed to keep your car cooler not hotter!!:icon_wink:

Installed Paranoid Fabrications grounding kit. It was shipped quickly and tracking info provided. Great seller. Very clear directions, including color photos, are posted on the website making installation easy.

I cleaned the stock grounds a while back because they were dirty but I felt I still wasn't getting the connection I needed, so I ordered the kit. Surprisingly, I noticed a difference after installing the kit today, nice smooth idle and response seems a little crisper. :rock:

I didn't get much done on my subie, but I did learn how to change the lifters on a jeep 4.0L :icon_mad:

While filling it up with gas I talked to a guy at the pump next to me about his SICK SVX! I never knew they made an AWD version! Took a look under the hood at that beautiful H6...makes me want to do a swap so bad... Then I learned that Boxer4Racing is based in my town! I'm going to go visit soon. ;-)
Their shop is located on a fun road, I have driven up a few times to get parts. You should keep an eye out for me around town, I drive a red SF with lots of rumble and black wheels. Send me a honk and a wave if you spot me. Usually Im around Merrimon, Biltmore or in the Richmond Hill area.
