    Where are you located? I’m out by green lake and luckily had a buddy do it real cheap. My fix is more so just to keep moisture out for now and buy some time.. I’m sure it’s stronger than it was with the crumbles in it but I’ll likely have to either put in entirely new towers or just swap everything to a rust free shell someday..

    It's crazy how good those look with considerably less sidewall around them. Dang!

    Ever since I first cleaned the set on my wife's '16 Outback, I thought they looked great and wanted to try fitting them on my Impreza. I finally got up the nerve and cash to hunt down a set and try it. I think they were worth it.

    Nope. But it’s pretty much time.

    Went to pull the winter beater ('00 OBK) into the garage for some work a couple days ago, and it wouldn't start. P0336. So, after a considerable fight (outside, in the dark and rain) to get the old crank sensor out, I got a new one in and it started right up.

    75226389_10156315176866010_7533422905481232384_n.jpg We ran the Lake Superior Rally and finished 3rd on class and 5th Overall in the Regional event. Not bad for a new car, co-driver couldn't talk and driver that was very rusty. Also met some MN Subaru guys in Michigan!

    Wrapped up the threads on my trailing arms in preparation for the winter. Gotta make sure they don't rust solid by mid December.

    Runnin errands today in my wagon, everything going great until i get back in the car from grabbing water (was my very last errand lol) and the temp gauge is climbing.. and climbing.. so i drove home in 1 mile-ish stints in effort to not overheat

    Hadn’t had this happen yet, was worried about possibilities.. so did some quick research, checked my coolant hoses and the lower one was dead cold, which was indicative of a stuck thermostat. Swapped that out with a new one and she’s right as rain! Love that it was a quick fix, one of the easiest I’ve done. Lol thank you Subaru!

    Put on winter set up this evening. After a slippery drive to work in Lakeville.

    I finally swapped mine last night with the threat of the “1/2 inch on the ground” that they forecasted for today.

    I really like how those look on the BRZ. They just seem to suit the car even though they're what, a couple decades old now? I'm sure the traditional WRB over gold wheels color scheme helps that but still, one of my favorite OE Subie wheels.

    Started driving the winter beater ('00 OBK 5MT) over the weekend. Blower motor would only spin after smacking it (I had a snow brush that was just the right length to reach it from the driver's seat), and even then only just barely.

    Finally swapped the blower from the parts car. I would like to find the engineer that didn't leave enough room to get the blower out past the wiring harness and pull his fingernails off. I lost my temper and started breaking stuff on the parts car to get it out, but had to do some serious fiddling to get it in the driver.

    Usually....yes. It just didn't make any sense. All the mounting hardware for the blower itself was very easily accessible, but the wiring was just in the way, and the retainers for the harness were not accessible. The harness was considerably more pliable on the car that had been driven recently, so that helped. If either component were moved 1/2", it would have been a 1 minute job, or if the harness was a couple inches longer...

    Well you can chalk it up as a victory anyways! I’ve wondered many times who designs this stuff. Obviously no one that actually rolls up their sleeves and does the work on them!
