I tried to keep the cutout as small as possible & filled it in with part of the cut-out piece & black silicone & Gorilla tape. I was going to try to add another piece of plastic underneath by drilling 3 holes and using push pins to hold that piece in place. But that pushpin under the gorilla tape is on an angled piece of plastic so I'm not sure that will work. I'll play this weekend.

I overpaid AutoZone for a pair of Super Bright LED 921 6000k bulbs. They seem brighter in the daytime so I hope they brighten things up tomorrow morning when I back out. When I step on the brakes while reversing I can see when I'm backing out. Now I know there are 3 brake lights but the old reverse bulbs are pretty weak. I hope these will be much better when reversing for the price. The bulbs are stake on so they just slide into place. The holder is a 1/4 twist and pull it out. When you put it back in there is one larger slot you have to line up with the thicker tab.

Well the new bulbs are much brighter than the old ones. It is harder to see the additional light difference when stepping on the brakes. So I guess it is worth it safety wise but I wish Wally world had them for 1/2 the price just saying.

I finally took some pictures of the cup cover dmarsh15 found. It's a pretty good match of the panel not 100% but pretty close.

I put the cigarette lighter in today. The cigarette lighter directions say they're for 2015-2019. They show the 2017 HVAC panel with 3 knobs and how to remove that one. But I couldn't figure out how to get the 2018 HVAC panel out of the way using the directions. So I didn't move it. The rest of the directions seemed accurate so I was able to get the rest of the center console apart. But to put the lighter in I had to fight & bend the top corners of the flip-lid center console storage cup to get it out from under the HVAC panel. I did manage to get it out and install the lighter into it without breaking anything but it was a PITA. I have to admit I was sweating it for a while. Anyway it's in and done but it might have been easier to get her to quit smoking. Nah

Dantrax where I’d you find the directions to remove the flip-lid center storage?

https://subaruonlineparts.com/subaru...er-p-3737.html Click on view installation instructions:here Or this https://subaruonlineparts.com/docs/H6710AL010.pdf Warning this doesn't tell you how to get the flip-lid center storage out from under the newer 2 knob HVAC panel. I had to chance breaking the flip-lid center storage to bend it out from under the HVAC panel. The center big storage box has 4 screws. 2 are under the cup holder cover & the other 2 are behind small oval covers just above the driver & passenger seat cushions. They're a little tricky to find.

Just installed non-OEM splash guards today. Purchased one set from Ebay.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fits-Subaru...72.m2749.l2649

Overall, 100% satisfied. They fit perfectly and all the hardwares work as intended. For the rear ones, use 8mm socket and small ratcheting wrench to fasten the screws.
