All boys ARE lol! My 4.5 y/o son has certainly taken a few years off my life from stress. They're worth it though. ESP for moments like above

Just to add to this thread.... (no pics, I was that pissed off) yesterday I tried pulling my driver side axle and I couldn't get it after changing the angles like 40 times.... I buttoned her up and took her to my mechanic.... gave him the part# and x-ref #'s and they called me an hour ago and told me "we got the axle in, but they sent the wrong side".... geezus KRIST..... you Suby guys are lucky.... these axle's are $295-$320 WITH core.

Anywho.... I'm learning about boys... my 20 month old is giving me MORE grey hairs.

Gonna clear it now. If admin would ever fix my acct I wouldn't have this problem. Glad I paid $$ for nothing!

I'll be wrapping my front/rear emblems like I did my fender badges this weekend. I should have the overlays by then...I hope. That's about all I could afford lol! Buying this house is killing me!

And sorry to hear Paul! Sucks being without your car. I finally just got mine back after being at the body shop for 3 weeks. Felt like an eternity lol! Congrats on the baby boy btw. The terror starts around 2 just FYI lol!!

Not MY Subie but did a SeaFoam treatment on my buddys' 2011 WRX with ~41K and I didn't get jack out of it (doing it with a 2nd person and keeping it at 2K RPM or so for a 1/3 can).

Anywho, had a bit left and did my Foz without a helper and banged out a ton of shit.... I've been doing the one person way/method for a few years yet the way that ppl have said to do it w 2 ppl nets results on his model.

Are the newest Gen different from the past gen's? I didn't wanna harm his plugs..... maybe a factor?

On a side note... got the Speed back after they ordered 2 wrong axles..... yet I gave them the part #'s and x-ref's.... bahh.... Anywho.... I caught it in time and they were able to repack the bearings and rewrap the boot.... SMH!!

Let the onslaught continue on Subies...

Had an hour to myself today so I satisfied some OCD needs lol! Cleaned up the wires inside the fuse box and inc some add-a-fuses for my power wires of the boost gauge. I centered the boost gauge without the bezel hood on the cluster which I think looks pretty nice...till I get more gauges and inc an SMY cluster of course lol! Then I shortened the tubing inside the engine bay and ran it along the back firewall. The sending unit is also now attached to the firewall with the push pin that holds the trim piece down. I think it looks a lot more OE now. Not much, but detail means a lot to me...

The wires for the radar detector are next. Already bought the harness to wire them into the power mirror harness that's up inside the roof already. Just gotta drop the panel and tap the harness when I have time.

That IS a sexy boost gauge Brandon

And Keith, He always has his coffee when he watches radar.... You should start a movie quote thread Keith. And the person that guesses right has to put up a quote, and so on.
