--rattle-canned the wheels a darkish gold for winter.

--Michelin x-ice xi3's on right now.
Been getting use out them this winter:

I have new struts, springs, group N front top hats, and all the other stuff waiting to go on in the next few weeks...just waiting on a few more parts.

...and since I decided on a swap a LONG time ago, I finally got started on that.

Blown up ej205:

Bought that 2 weeks ago, and I've been tearing it apart in my house with hand tools. Got the heads off last weekend, and finally got the damn pistons out tonight. Gotta go get a 12 point socket to finish removing the case bolts and I can split the block tomorrow, well today now. Lol it's pretty late.

Had to get creative for the c-clip things:

Looks/feels like it was rod bearing from #4 that died. This is my first Subaru engine teardown, but everything else looks pretty clean to me. Cross hatching is good right?

Hoping to have it all ready to drop in, harness and all, by spring.
