So my first Subaru was a 1998 outback sport. I had it for a year and a bit and it was been a great car! I always wanted to swap a ej207, ej257, or a eg33 but I never had enough money to do this. I had SO MANY plans for this car but life happens, and so does arrogant driving. It was new years day and I was driving to pick up my girlfriend to go out for the day. The roads were icy the night before and I knew this because I drove home at 1am the previous night and it was verrrryyy icy. That being said the next morning the roads were fine and i was just driving excited to be getting out of the house. I turned onto a backroad to go get my girlfriend and the first turn I went around was a right bend in the shade and I was going too fast for the conditions. I slid off the road hitting a tree. ****. Looking back I thought of what I could've done to avoid the crash, the only thing i could come up with was don't be a dumb ass and always be sure to pay attention to the road conditions.


After this I was in a funk for pretty much the whole month. It sucks crashing your car, but i knew this day would eventually come. So I was looking on craigslist for the past couple weeks for a shell of a impreza that I could swap everything into(everything on the obs still worked) or just a impreza sedan/wagon that had busted engine or transmission. So finally I found someone who would email me back, the owner of my new car!

Grats on the Eagle scout, I as well made Eagle several years back.
As for the corners, unscrew the tab that is holding them onto the top of the headlight, they are also held in at the bottom but just take your palm and lightly hit it forward and it will pop out! When you install the clears, make sure the little knub on the backside of the corner light pops into the headlight and then screw it in.

Then enjoy your mad tyte jDm Corners yo.

Sorry i didn't mean those, i meant the amber Side blinkers. Sorry about that.
I am still waiting for the clear corners in the mail though so i am sure your instructions will help once i get those. :)

Supposedly the fender lights just pop out by pushing them towards the front of the car and pulling out. I still cant get mine off, but I'm probably just an idiot, lol.

push forward on the fender light, sometimes it can be pretty hard, it should slide forward slightly and allow the back to pop out... If you look at your new lights it should be fairly easy to see how it clips in
bolded for truth (how i find out everything about my car is rs25 or reverse engineering lol)
