Hey guys my name is Cory, I am currently going to college and this is my second Subaru... My first one slid into a ditch and was totaled coming back down the mountain during a blizzard in January 2012. And I was sad. My 97 obs was one of the cleanest around and with low miles
But it is probably melted down or turned into a cube by now... :/
After looking for another impreza or baja even for 3 months I finally ended up with a 2000 impreza L that was for sale in the Seattle CL. Drove up, test drove it, and took it home.

Wrx wheels & Interior swap
The night I brought it home I put my old wheels back on to replace the 17" works. The tires were unbalanced and it threw the handling off pretty bad.

I also liked the darker interior in my 97 compared to the new L. So the next day after taking the car to deq/ dmv while getting bent over the table for $212... I stripped the interior of both cars and swapped everything that I could. (darker grey carpet, and dark gray bottom plastics that go around the door trim and hatch area) took so freking long... oh and I installed my old stereo and a 12 led bulb dome light!
Darker 97 Carpet in:
Apparently I didn't take any pictures of it all done... probably because it was late and I was tired, but the wrx wagon seats are in along with all the darker lower plastics. I am running no passenger seat right now though, in the crash the frame of it got all F'd up. I am in need of a 02-07 frame or seat in crappy condition to put my wrx cushions on (if anyone local can help me out let me know)

Fresh Wax
Spent most of the day waxing and buffing the car yesterday. It needed it pretty bad, and we ended up buffing and waxing the whole thing about 3 times to get out all the water spots and faint scratches. Took off the roof rack and roof rails and cleaned under them, paint was also chipped off on one of the rails so replaced it with one from the obs.
I am thinking I am going to get a v6 grill for it. I found a person in the uk with the same color who is willing to send me the grille, paint matched door handles, rs front blinkers and vents. It would end up being $170 to get it shipped over here... what do you guys think? is it worth it?
my beautiful blue and white poka-dot hood. :rolleyes:

Question. If I become a premium member, will the adds that show up on the pictures go away? they annoy the hell out of me...
Also, how do I put in the small little thumb nail picture so that it shows in the members journals section?

go premium and never look back!
