    Finally got around to installing a microphone for the bluetooth function on my aftermarket head unit. Figured with the hands-free laws taking effect soon it was a good time for it. Didn't want it looking like an obvious add-on just clipped to the visor or something so I mounted it in the map light housing. Worked out perfectly, hole came out just the right size so I didn't even need to use any fasteners or adhesive. Kind of wish the housing and headliner were black now so it'd blend in a little better but still happy with it. :thumbup:

    Maybe find some plastic trim paint in a similar shade of gray and touch up the mic instead? That's a pretty bad ass install.

    If you want your BRZ to feel faster. Just rent a uhaul and fill it with fragile items. Then drive it for three days straight. Then park it and get back in your BRZ.

    BAM, instant gainz!!! Don’t say that i’ve “never given you anything”.

    Finally got around to installing my kartboy front and rear shifter bushings. Man what a night and day difference... Reduced a lot of slop. Still had the OEM bushings which were completely shot.

    Also planned on installing the short shifter, only to realize my own (the original owner) had the additional STI linkage/short shifter put in from factory.

    My 19th Subaru, favorite model and trim in my second favorite Subaru color. It's a basketcase, but it was stupid cheap. Needs rear struts, brakes, has a nasty vibration at idle, and I had to put a driveshaft in it to get it home (luckily I have a collection, lol).

    Also, the partout had started, and someone took the McIntosh 7-speaker system out of it. Clearly they want to retrofit it into something else, because not only did they take the head unit, amp, and all 7 speakers, but they cut the wiring pigtails off to do it. So I've got to basically start over to put something in it.

    Current count (counting 2 parts cars) is 11 cars. 1 Ford, 2 Toyotas, 8 Subarus. 4 BH Outbacks. 4 running H6s in cars, 3 more out of a car. Cylinder index: 92

    Wired up a LED panel light underhood just because I had it laying around. This photo is in pitch black garage with just the light on.

    So not only do I have a problem with buying Subaru’s, but also with buying wheels. Found a set of Prodrive PFF7s for a stupid good deal. Now I can coordinate my wheels to my outfit (I am a woman after all).

    I have a Blue 19 Sport. With the bigger brakes, I was wondering if 17s would fit. Looks tight.

    I started some DIY rust repair on my rear wheel wells today.

    Removed the bumper, got to sanding and grinding with my dremel. The rust was a bit worse than i anticipated unfortunately so I’ve got some body mesh patches and body filler in the mail.

    Covered the bare metal with a rust converter, I’m basically following chrisfix’s tutorial. I am hoping to get some before/after posted in a thread somewhere for those interested

    Drove out to CT for WBM with my wife and daughter in our FXT. Aside from vendors, I’m sure we possibly may have traveled the furthest distance for the meet.

    New wheels and all cleaned up before departure:

    I didn’t do it, but @CBCV did. It was overdue and looks fantastic!

    I just did a similar thing; did a cancel/replace on my Legacy 3.6 and replaced it with a Crosstrek, in manual. The Legacy was probably the nicest car I've ever had, but it also had no ground clearance and just wasn't...comfortable, I guess? Sounds weird, it's a cushty car, but it just didn't feel right for me. I had a Crosstrek before, so I went back to that.

    It was an adventure finding reverse with the 6 speed box :blackeye: Maybe I should read the manual :bounce:

    I hit my subi with a hammer for a while today..

    lol i decided to dive into my driver’s rear strut tower since I’ve already got the back seat out. Sure enough, that side is rusty in the same place as the passenger rear tower.. after knocking out the loose stuff with the hammer I’ll cut and grind the rest out and weld in more patches. Good news is it’s better than the other side was :thumbup:
