Hello fellow Subaruists, Subaruin, whatever. A few months back I decided to pull the trigger on a 2005 LGT. I already had a 2008 Outback 2.5i which I love, but it lacks some pizazz in the oomph department. Here was the LGT on purchase day: She was filthy, covered in plastidip (taillights, roof rack, grill, chrome trim, interior trim) and needed love. I started by de-plastidipping the taillights and other parts. 3M Adhesive remover worked wonders on the taillights. Then I replaced the fogged headlights, threw on a cheap lip so I don't scrape my bumper, replaced the grill, (which was plastidipped and then spraypainted) and found some BRZ/FRS wheels. At first the updates were purely cosmetic. But then this happened: And they kept on coming.... She went to RS Motors for a week - Driver's side Banjo Bolt filter completely clogged, engine now had a knock (insert expletive here)! I had a decision to make, bail on the LGT or rebuild...........so I contacted JMA. They were awesome, sent me updates (and pics) and answered my many emails and phone calls without making me feel like a total idiot. One month, a new shortblock and a VF52 later, I finally got my grocery getter back. Now I am just getting through the break-in miles and happy to be getting groceries again!
