Wrapped the stereo trims from the legacy. Thought I'd better throw it a bone recently, it's been neglected for a couple weeks. Ty Auckland fuel prices! Also, got a new daily... be70b5ce77c75344e510d6ab86e73e53.jpge16e7c8b8b9081fdde02ddf5d1dfdab4.jpg1fdef6b715a250a93093de523e21ca00.jpg

Good job on those.

Wish it wasn’t a matter of semi destroying the door cards to get them seperated to wrap the silver piece in them. Not doing the whole lot would bug me.

Oh really?! That was my next project haha bugger. May have to wrap them on the door itself then. I'll post here if I'm successful....

People have done it. The segments just have those melted plastic sorta rivets so just need to have a plan for re-securing it later

Hot glue to re fix them in place potentially? I'll try it at some point, maybe from a wrecker instead. Anyway, reinstalled the trim peices and it looks slick! Super stoked.

Can’t see hot glue doing the trick long term. Some kind of plastic glue, epoxy two part resin or PVC cement, would want to check the plastic type before using that though. 

 

Not so easily removable if you change your mind though I guess

Fitted a Hardrace mount set. Massive improvement,

Similarly I fitted some KEIN mounts recently along with some solid spacers to replace crossmember bushes. 

Greatly improved shifting... it turns out some muppet used a standard impreza or legacy mount

for the transmission... soft enough to bend with one hand. Anyway, the car is hellish loud now,

but nothing some earplugs won't fix... the vibration is nothing to worry about.

So you wouldn’t recommend anyone use those mounts for a car that requires some civility to remain?

The major noise I suspect is due to using solid bushes in the crossmember... the crossmember bushes are actually quite soft

usually and so even with a hard transmission mount, there would be quite a bit of dampening.

New pitch stop mount is in. Has made a hell of alot of difference, with zero harshness thanks to it having hardened rubber bushes rather than the usual poly. 

No more repeated rocking when coming on/off throttle at low revs is a massive bonus. Turns out the original was in pretty bad shape, the small side bush was flopping around all over the place.

Replaced serpentine belt, idler pulley and tensioner. Took me maybe half an hour working in the dark.

 

With that said it took me another half an hour to remove and reinstall the damned battery...

Finally managed to get my 5 metre land yacht out of Auckland and sailed down to Karangahake gorge yesterday. Such an awesome cruiser and averaged only 5.5L/100km, hapi daze! 9_9

Today I cleaned up the headlights on the wagon and sealed them so hopefully it actually lasts a while before going yellow again. It was really hard to photograph with the cloud and reflections.

That looks great! What brand and where did you source it from?

Hardrace from Redline. The only one I could find that didn’t use poly bushes

I said fk it and bought a running WRX motor off my friend with new cambelt, tensioners and waterpump for $500.

I'm going to slap it into the RA, shove as much e85 down its throat as I can and give it full send. I'm tired of not having a running RA.

Tried for the third time to get the before/after Dyno sheet for a dyno tune I had done two weeks ago. Tuner is no longer even replying.

Do you have the after dyno sheet at least? Who is the tuner?

      Hiya, would anyone in/near Wellington have a spare passenger floor mat for a 2006 Legacy b4? I’ve looked at a few aftermarket options but I’d like to find an original. Cheers!
