Had some free time today, so got all hopped up on redbull and decided to do the mess grill mod thing, came out decent I think, especially for not having all my tools at home. (Sorry pic quality isn't the best)

And installed. Yeesh.

The ignition wire is still not hooked up here, but this black white cable is not used for this alternator. I also lost the battery signal light or whatever, so I need to go get a digital gauge somewhere that plugs into the 12v cigarette lighter.

It's a custom from Singer Alternators. I'm not sure what the body is from, or what they did to make it honestly.

Picked up a skid plate from a 94 mi for a (I believe) good price, 20 bucks.

-Installed Raceland's Primo coilovers last night. Have to say, money well spent. Not done with adjustments and alignment, but driving it home last night on the stiffest dampening setting was just fine. Drove to work this morning on the softest dampening setting and even better for a daily driven Tleg. I don't have a comparison to other brands of coilovers, but I have owned all three sets of Raceland's, red, green and now white and I think the Primo's are worth the extra $100 bucks compared to the Ultimo's.

New Axles meant for a 2002 impreza from napa. Same spline count just slightly longer 26inch vs 25 stock. I must say for all the criticism Ive read regarding aftermarket vs oem Im happy with my 70$per axle vs 200 plus for remanufactured..

Hopefully the aftermarket axles last you. My experience wasn't that good :)

Not my Subie, buy my wifes...
Finished the EJ205 drivetrain swap into her '02 Outback wagon. Was a big project that took longer than I was expecting, but worth it. A little more involved than I was planning on, but that's every project. Still need to fab a bracket from the cruise actuator. She runs good but needs more turbo for such a heavy car.
