I gots the skillz! LOL. I just cut the wires and spliced 24" long wires on. I also used marine grade shrink tubes because they have a glue inside that melts the openings shut to prevent from water getting in.

I finally had enough of this clutch sqeeking that I did something about it. Just listen to the video at how loud it was. Heres what I did to try and fix it:
1. Remove the intake, clutch slave cylinder, and fork dust cover
2. Sprayed some high heat graphite lube down onto the fork piston
3. Cleaned contact surfaces of the slave cylinder and the fork with an abrasive
4. Lube with white lithium grease and put everthing back together

I know this isnt rocket science but so many people ask me how I get my headlights so clear when most become very dull and hazy over time. Heres the steps:

1. Gather your items: Meguiar's Plastx polish, Mothers Small PowerBall with drill, hand wax buffer.
2. Clean your headlights as best you can. Get all dirt, bugs, tar off before anything else.
3. Apply small thin strips of the polish over the headlight. Dont gob it on!
4. Take the hand buffer and rub it in using circular motions.
5. Let the wax dry up a little and then buff it in using the other side of the hand buffer.
6. Pull out the drill and buff the headlights making sure to get all areas of the headlight.
7. Make sure to clean up any extra polish off of painted surfaces.
8. Clean up your polishing ball using degreaser and store back in the package and your done.

Drivers side done

Today Ben (RoxyTheImpreza) came over and I installed the Unabomber's Sexy Rearend kit from turninconcepts.



This kit includes the following:

1. Kartboy Rear Subframe Outrigger Bushings - RACE
2. TiC Subaru Rear Diff Mount Bushings - RACE
3. Kartboy "Botox" Rear Subframe Lock Bolts






He came around 4-ish and everything was done around 8pm. We even had enough time to do the Seafoam....again.

Some more pics.

the car feels so much better! Shifting feels a lot better and the rear end just feels great. If anyone is concerned about the feel/sound DONT WORRY and don't get the softer version.... otherwise you're a big pussy also the sea foam seems to of helped.... funny seeing everyones faces on the road when we unleashed the smoke cloud and "escaped"
