Back seats, backside DIY protector / cover will be my project for tomorrow. Found a decent thread from flatransplant here; https://www.subaruforester.org/vbulle...tector-209634/

I am taking the same route, I'll post up exactly what the materials used are when I get home.

Here is a link to 9005 high beam to 9011 hir headlight mod. A great improvement! Now going to figure if I want to hid kits in the low beams or take another route. Open to suggestions.

Steering wheel radio controls went in today. Super easy to do. Followed a thread from here.. steering wheel came off without much effort or a puller oddly enough.

Realize that the previous owner installed back up led lights, kind of neat. Help a little with the dark tint.

Customized the box for its new home, it may be 8 years old but she's mine, and saved me the cash on a new box.
