My heart goes out to those axles and ball joints.

I mean, to be fair it gained a few inches of lift once the engine was out, lol




Got some stuff done today, mostly wiring related aswell as just some cleaning. The harness from the Outback is super nice cause it has a couple of plugs connecting the ECU to Engine harness to the rest of the wiring. That way I could just remove that part and focus on merging that section to the same section from the Tribeca. Thats gonna be everything I need to merge, period. Then just plug it back into the rest of the Outback harness and go! Super nice!






My gf came to help and went over every pin from the two plugs that plug into the Tribeca engine harness, and wrote down the colour of each and what it connects to on the engine. Just need to get the same done for the Outback section and then merge. Sounds simple enough, hopefully it will be








Meanwhile I did some more tear down on the car and tried to organise the mess I had already made yesterday





We also went out shopping this morning and bought some paint for the engine bay/door jams and roof. And the most exciting thing is this electric spray gun thats probably junk but possibly not, lol. Either way I'm really excited to give it a go. I've never painted with a spray gun before so that should be interesting

I asked my buddy who painted both my GC and WRX, he said this stuff should very well be usable, but we'll see. Hopefully I can get to testing it soon. Just need to prep the engine bay and fix the rust a bit

More teardown going on. Really starting to look like a project car now, lol. Doors and side trims are off, aswell as basicly everything else in order to be able to paint the jams.










I found some "fresh" oem paint, really makes me miss it... Looked good





And also I found some leftovers from the puddle fun haha

Got stuff done today, pretty happy with the progress.


































And the less exciting news is that the front end is complete trash... this has to be the worst collosion repair I have seen. Granted the chassis isn't that bad cause the car alignes perfectly and all that, but all these seams just offer rust...














Not gonna worry about this for now though. I decided that I'd just replace the front as neccesary next year or sometime when I have enough time to do it properly. But then I got a better idea that could involve a tube front or atleast some custom one off stuff, so now I'm actually just excited rather than bummed out haha


And the engine bay is all prepped and ready for paint




I made an axle joke too
