Default 99 OBS "Winter Beaster"

Well I finally got some pictures of my car so I figured it was about time to make a journal.

Here she is in all of her stock glory!

Sorry about the blurry pics, it was pretty cold that night!


Gotta get some WRX or Legacy wheels, asap.




LED license plate lights!


Green LED interior light FTW!!



Carbon fiber shift boot = awesome!

Gotta start somewhere!

Hood scoop and vents have been flat blacked. The replica 22B vents I bought where garbage so I am looking at a set of V3 STi vents now.

I also bought new Toyo all season tires and got an oil change before my trip to Pittsburgh!

Only one mishap on the trip! Slid into a curb while playing around and cracked one of my hubcaps a bit.

Car is now showing a CEL that is a O2 sensor problem and I also noticed a LOT of oil on top of the passenger side head and that the front plug wire was covered in oil also. :-(

Takin' her to my mechanic tomorrow. Hopefully there is nothing too serious going on. I might have the timing belt checked too, especially since I have no way of checking any service history to see if its been done recently.

CEL went away, oil is leaking from the oil pressure sensor on top of the engine. Will replace that soon.

So far so good, going to order the diff locker bolts soon. I cant wait to see how much those help!

Chyeaa! Nice car do you have any long term plans? Sorry to hear about your cracked hub cap. Tragic.

LOL, tragic indeed. I just cant afford real wheels right now. :-(

Not really any long term plans, the cars a little too rusty to make some big plans around. I wanna just do poly bushings where I can, eventually wheels, some WRX suspention pieces and random CF bits because I'm an addict.

Oh yeah, and supers single port header!!! I have a Hawaiian punch jug about 3/4 filled with coins that I want to use as my deposit on it!

Recently installed my amber corner lenses. I then installed these CF eyelids with heavy duty, 3M outdoor double sided tape and promptly lost one of them on the highway on the way home from work that night. :-( Need to figure out a better way to mount those when I buy a replacement.

TAX RETURN CAME BACK!!

Im finally going to be putting my MR2 back on the road after 4 years of sitting and getting a heart transplant!

As for the OBS, I want to find a WRX drivers seat and do some drive train beefing up!
