plastidip on the grill about 8 coats, the light bar was pretty easy to install by pulling the bumper and bolting it to the bumper, but the bumper slants down so I had to add some washers to level it out but it works wellGreat job, what did you use on grill?. Really like the light bar, easy or hard to install?.
Nice! Let us know your impressions once it’s up! I just replaced my oem-equivalent kyb coil springs in the rear with Rallitek overload springs today. Going for an alignment in the morning. I hear the Kings are even stiffer.Going on this weekend, or should I say, 'going up'.
This is the one I bought. Black PU Leather Steering Wheel Cover Wrap for Subaru Forester Outback Legacy XV | eBayI love that! do you have a link to where you got it? Also how long and involved was the stitching?
That was a roller coaster of a story. Thanks for sharing, and glad you kept the Outback.I spent some time today away from work (which is done at the company laptop in my home office), so that I could show my 2012 Outback Limited (2.5i) some overdue love.
Today I took her in for a slightly overdue oil change and also had them flush the power steering system and fill with new fluid. This was the third bit of pampering she's received this week. Yesterday she got a trip through the car wash. Monday, she had her winter shoes replaced with her all-season shoes. Oh, and after the service was done today, we stopped at a sporting goods store where I bought her a new annual state parks pass.
Of course, all of that was to make up for my cruel abandonment of her on Saturday afternoon. Because, people, I TRADED HER IN. On a used Toyota Sienna. I thought I was ready to say goodbye and move on. I really want a vehicle I can camp and sleep in, more comfortably than in the Outback, and the Sienna suits me just fine in many ways and especially for the camping thing.
Except, not that particular Sienna. I had buyer's remorse within an hour of driving off in it. (Some hinky issues with that vehicle, no need to get into the deets. I shoulda never done that deal at all.)
Fortunately the dealer has a policy of no-questions-asked returns of any car you buy within 2 days/200 miles. I was happy to pick up the Outback on Monday morning. And then, yes, we had the tire changeover, car wash, and service. I'm going to try a few short camping trips to state parks in the Outback with among other things an awning/tent-ish thing I just ordered, that attaches to the car with the back hatch open. I hope that will add some room to the setup so I'll feel less cramped and boxed in when sleeping in the back of the car. Ya know, I bought this car new, have maintained it diligently, and it's only got 79,850 miles on it. I have two sets of tires for it that are both in great shape. I've now learned that maybe I have a better situation going than I realized, and there may be ways for me to enjoy road trips using campgrounds vs hotel$, in the Outback. Instead of trading it in. Anyway, it's not like I'm going to be traveling far in the immediate future anyway so cooling my jets about the Sienna is probably a wise thing.
And, hi. I think this is my first post here. You seem nice. And, I like your cars.
looks great! i was thinking about this exact setup!
