So here's the rest of the update as I got a ton of things done this weekend.
Warning to others. Don't tighten down you lug nuts fully without wheels as this will happen. I killed 7 doing this which was luckily the amount of spares I had.
Next is another glamour shot I guess you could call it.
Finally got round to installing the JDM Legacy rear garnish. The light wiring was different so I used the Outback harness. I'll need a blanking plug as the JDM harness has four lights and the Outback only has three.
I got around to installing the rest of the head unit stuff. The antenna adapter was easy. I wanted a clean install for the mic so this was my solution. Drill a hole in a blank switch slot. Push mic in. Secure in the back with hot glue.
You can see it near the indicator stalk. I don't think its obvious and seems to work as testing so far indicates.
That was Saturday. Below is Sunday's work. First I went through and removed everything from the car that wasn't bolted down as a lot of shit has accumulated over the past 9 months. I sorted it all out later and only about 20% went back into the car.
Next was to replace the smaller boot panel as the old one has old on it. There seems to be slight differences between Liberty's (above) and Outback's (below). I knife fixed this up quick.
Next I decided to pull up the carpet and replace it as it was disgusting. Which lead me to the ECU

It only took me 9 months but I finally have a picture. Can you confirm if it's the same as yours if possible.
Comparison of the carpets. The image doesn't convey how bad the old (right) carpet was.
Only issue with my $20 replacement carpet was a small hole near the dead pedal. I did my best to patch with some of the old carpet. It doesn't look the best this close but you can't see the patch with the carpet installed.
New carpet installed. There's also a new glove box cover and drivers side B pillar cover installed, which like the carpet I've had laying around for a while now.
The rest of the interior is back in now and a lot less stuff is now stored in the car compared to the start of the day.
Here's a final shoot with my $13 sun reflector. Pretty good eBay purchase tbh.
There's always going to be more to do but list of things to do is getting shorter by the day. I haven't had much time to look at project Lambda and get my head around it yet but that's the next task. Any suggestions on good resources with learning to tune and stuff as I'm super lost when it comes to it all?
On a quick note I should be looking at a Subaru Brumby (Brat) tomorrow on my parents behalf so that should be cool to add to the collection. And of course it's got stupid high kilometers.
Anyway thanks for reading.
