  1. The black is holding up really well so far. Looks great from 10ft away. Last week I ordered a fuel pump for the green 521 and decided to 'splurge' on something else for the daily - a new key / integrated fob - and went and got it cut today with the Lonely Driver killswitch key for the green 521. This works for any Subaru owner that wants to move to an integrated key - you just have to find the correct style key blank for your model. For a 03 Forester it uses a "57497AG48A" which will work in Legacy / Outback / Tribeca / Forester. After it's cut - since the older vehicle does not have an immobilizer in the ignition, you can pair it like any other fob device. You do the ole - put a key in the ignition and switch from Off to On - 10x fast and you will hear the horn honk, open and close the drivers door, and then hit the lock or unlock button on the key - and enjoy your new fangled tech. Guide found online for connecting to scoobies stock system:
  2. Finally cut the key for the Green truck which I think I'm dubbing my little Grumptruck. The front half of her is green like Oscar the grouch and the back half is premiered gray like his trashcan so might as well run with it. Also got a new Subaru key cut at the same time to integrate the fob for the daily.
  3. Some great news - Gerson banged out the 520/521 floors https://www.instagram.com/p/CVIdmmMgsDZ/ The tip is to pay someone else to do the dirty work LOL Man I'm jealous of that shop space!
  4. Wekfest Seattle was today, so I went and checked that out. Pretty small compared to HIN of years past but understandable with the restrictions and one of the 'first' shows to pop back up after the lockdowns. Nice to see some local people I haven't seen in a while. Snagged some goodies for ole blue while I was there. Some C's Customizing reservoir covers and a 'limited' edition gold carmeets app sticker. (Block out the QR code for ow because I haven't set anything up fully)
  5. Reggie Watts is a fantastic loop master. Love his work.

  8. This one https://www.summitracing.com/parts/wil-330-12954 or a different aftermarket one?
  9. At the bottom of the comment window there should be an attachment option with a "Drag files here to attach, or choose files..." that will allow you to attach them to your message. If you prefer hosting the images and linking them here then I would recommend imgur.com for hosting

    That bench is fucking mint 👌
  11. So no more fuckin around with damaged UV plastics, I grabbed some of this awesome stuff offa Amazon: Directions say to use their detergent to remove all traces of oil and grime, so did that, then taped everything off. Here you can see the 'waves' in the UV damaged bumpers Comes with a shitty little paint brush but just take your time as it has about a 20 minute cure time. Here you can see first coat vs none Here is how it dried after the fist coat - kinda streaky but even so, drastically better After going up and down with the first goat I went horizontal with the second. You can see how much darker it is now. I will likely hit it with a 3rd coat to just really finish it off tomorrow but this is doing great.
  12. He's got a little build thread 🤭

    If it sucks and you're planning on replacing it then I would recommend upgrading it to one of the BlueSea marine style with updated fuses. From what I've seen on all 3 520/521s I've had is that the shape of the hood and cowl lead to rain dripping right on that old fuse box and not helping. More info on upgrading the fusebox (DanielC's comment at the bottom):

    New interior door cards and other pieces can be purchased though this guy here: https://www.instagram.com/tree_ausawa/ If you wanna go with a 'vintage' feel for the raido but have modern features, you can go with: https://www.vintagecarradio.com/vintage-radios/datsun or similar, i'm likely just going to take my bluethooth speaker with me and listen to my phone. Check the fuses in the fusebox under the hood on the left side - spin the fuses. Mine sometimes don't want to ground correctly and doing so fixes the issues till I can clean them, otherwise it's time to bust out the multimeter and track it down. Wipers, could be fuse, spin and try again, otherwise check the motor / or even if it is hooked up under the dash. d.p ahs a good thread with fuseboxes pictures here, but you shouldn't be missing any - should be filled with fuses like the box in the bottom right of the first picture
  16. lol I did the same thing. Brain had a stroke for a second.
  17. Congrats on bein legal! You literally pulled a pile of shit out of field and made it into a car. Quite the accomplishment.
  18. Sometimes the simplest answer is the best lol cheers.
  19. I think it would hide enough for the vehicle to be recovered - I just don't want another monthly payment for the app / tracking service as it's not going to be utilized until an 'oh shit' occurrence yanno?
  20. Mail call today, got a locking glovebox door and matching keys for the green truck, and a carbon kevlar plug cover from Jblood x ICB motorsports japan for the blue trucks K24 GITD valve cover
