131k. It's worth it.
Just bought it and drove it home. 170 some miles one way. Was in Plymouth,mn
110k mi. On it now.
My relay on my Hellas failed in my garage yesterday; almost went deaf pulling the fuse. Took the Jeep through the storm to AutoZone for a new relay; now only one of the horns work another spring project I guess...
You're running some major camber on that bad boy!
Yea I cant remember what I had Jeff set it at but it was substantial.
Plowed through 6 inches of snow this morning in Maplewood in the BRZ. Streets were unplowed as well but it did great with the General snow tires!
Not a winter car...pfffft. If it wasn’t, why would it have heated mirrors and seats!?
I remember Jeff referenced your specs when he set mine up but he must have ignored them to keep me at a more daily driver value.
The only issues I've had is dragging the floor in deep snow and not being able to clear the ice chunks that fall off the rockers of the car in front of me. The 16s look good on there with meaty tires.
The bottom of the series.blue looks like a matchbox car! It has plastic skid plates that cover nearly the entire bottom to decrease drag. With a little momentum through the deep stuff, it’s almost like a sled! Hahaha
How hard of a project is that? Any special tools needed? Asking for a friend who's obviously not as handy as me
Not bad. Although my neck and hip were sore afterwards. Floor jack, 12-15mm wrenches and sockets. Allen wrench to stick in the old one to get off and one of mine striped out,but vise grips saved me from sawing it off. Clean threads and wd40 couple times.
Vinyls are officially off-(after 8 hours of patience, a heat gun, and fingers bleeding) Now she needs a bath! Who needs a 2.5YBRID WRX!?
Tonight I transfered 300watt kicker amp and 12in Rockford amp into the Legacy.
Rockford sub (correction).
Bumper had road rash on it when I got it, I made it look a little bit better. Heated it up bent it into place and screwed it. I think I am gonna get some of the paint match vinyl wrap material from colorxlabs.com to make front bumper and few other spots look better.
Did you have to take the bumper off? Someone hit me while I was parked and I'd like to try and try to salvage the shape to wrap the bumper as well. Advice appreciated!
Use hot water and/or a heat gun and you should be able to push out the dent (there are tons of videos on youtube). You might be able to remove some of the scratches with rubbing compound as well.
I am with Jordan on this. That looks like a pretty easy dent to pop out and buff out most of the paint transfer/scratches.
I tried prying the dent out, sounds like heat is the key missing element to my method?
Gentle even heat is key.
Took off the snow wheels/tires (I like the look of them much more than my "summer" all seasons on the OEM...), oil change, and rear brake pads (OEM --> StopTech).
I just used a small bottle torch from work. Got a little too close too quick and burnt some paint,but alwready had road rash in the spot.
What I found is get your hand on the back of the area so you can feel the heat (temp) and slowly push it out and hold it untill it cools.
Anyone here replace the radiator fans in a white bugeye tonight? I felt a moving of the Force.
No. I did find this the other day. Scared to pull it out. Tugged on it a little and it's in there.!
Yup! Cody came over and we got the fan out without much issue. But non-turbo car fans and turbo car fans are not created equally. Despite that, a quick rewiring and she’s as good as new!
