RUUUUST!

I’ve been seeing alot of bugeyes with rust lately so I decided to investigate. I found a decent amount of rust under the seam sealer on the rear passenger side wheel well. I scrubbed it down as best I could and put two coats of por 15 on it. Maybe that will delay the inevitable. Nothing has started showing on the outside yet.

Test Mode Switch

I turned my no longer used fog light switch into a test mode switch using a pigtail I got from the junk yard. No more fishing around under the dash for those damn green connectors. I did grab a spare set of test mode connectors (from a Subaru at the junk yard) to replace the crimp on connectors but I havent gotten around to putting them on yet.

JDM V8 STi Seats

I picked up some JDM V8 STi seats off a good friend of mine, they of course had some rust where the mounting bolts go. If you own a Subaru you know exactly what I am talking about.

I tried many things, wire brush, wire wheel, and naval jelly however a grinding stone on a dremel tool worked best.


I bought a starter pack of Por 15 and followed the instructions. I had plenty to do both front seats.

The final product!

Wagon Update

Just a little update as to whats been going on with the wagon.
1. I removed the 27mm Whiteline front sway bar. (to twitchy) and replaced it with a Cobb 22mm.
2. I removed the front subframe to loose 25lbs.
3. I replaced the Technafit brake lines since they were cracked and in bad shape and replaced them with Goodridge lines after some absolutely horrible customer service from Stuart Trotter @ Technafit.
4. I finally installed the RCE Wagon springs on my STI struts.
