yes, and the Northerns can take it back :flame: well at least it is actually snowing and not just damn cold... you know what I mean... I now feel like there is a reason for it being cold, now that it's snowing :lol:Cant believe we finally got some snow down here!
I couldnt really have any fun because Ive got these damn balled tires :burnout: My ass was getting stuck just moving in the parking lot
down here we only have one set of tires... summer tires... cause that's usually all we need.... the whole town shuts down on days like these.... so no need for snow tires... haha I was kinda hoping the kids would have school so I could have an excuse to drive on the snow... but it's probably better I didn'tThat's why I have new tires on my old wheels. I just throw them back on for the winter.
Like I said, raise her up a bit and then put on some grabbers. She will look sexy no matter what because you doing things right this time aroundlol, I know how you feel.... I was debating going out... but thought it probably be best for me and Roxy to stay home and not embarrass the subie community flying off the road without proper traction lol
damn I want my lift and general grabber tires....
I wish I had a set of old ass wheels laying around just for days like this. Hell I would even take some steelies.That's why I have new tires on my old wheels. I just throw them back on for the winter.
Very nice! I will try this as soon as I get my clutch replaced. I can feel it slip in third sometimes. (or maybe thats just my bald tires)I wrote this up for you guys, but you don't have to use romraider; you can use your AP to log the data instead.
Im not sure but my e bay knock off hood dampers seem strong enough to support a steel hood. Ive never tried it though so dont take my word for it. I believe I paid under $60 shipped atleast 6 months ago and there still holding strong.Golden, do you know of any hood dampers that are strong enough for the steel RS hood?
Thanks! Ive been up to Des Moines once to pick up a parts car. Needless to say it was rused all to hell :lol: On the way we did see some of the bridges of Madison County. Iowa reminds me so much of Germany.Great thread man! I've been snowed in here in Iowa reading up on some of your innovations. The black HiTemp paint is good stuff. I use it on my calipers before Subie meets to cover the rust. I like em painted black and not colored and all ricey looking.
Also looking into doing a stock 06-07 scoop with the water deflector. Have to see if I can get some sheet metal and mock it up.
son of a bitch ive been waiting for him to get those in again for months and just pulled the trigger somewhere else last week.
wtf is that paint on stuff you use? i was gonna repaint my midpipe so it matches the rest of my exhaust (bbq black) but the spray on stuff is not very durableYes, that hi heat paint is the best but I only use the (roll-on) type. I cant stand any kind of spray paint because Im an ass when it comes to masking everything all up. The best part is that it actually stops rust..

Actually, I use the same BBQ grill paint that you use I just brush it on to the calipers. I agree that it is too much of a pain and mess to spray it on.Yes, that hi heat paint is the best but I only use the (roll-on) type.

About the hood scoop: are you going to buy or find yourself a wrx hood of your year or try and cut a hole in your oem steel hood? The only benefit by adding a scoop or vent to your hood would be that it vents out the hot engine bay air. Down here in Texas when it reaches 100F + in the summer, that vent comes in real handy.
