So far I've used VHT but am looking at stripping this back of and going again with something else. Have a couple of spare trims to test what works best.
Prior to lockdown I bought some mother's trim restorer and have tried it on one trim to see how it looks, but I would appear that this will wear off after time. Not sure how long it will last.
So hard to get paint to look like factory. Not too glossy and not too matte.
So... The Wagon hasnt had too much love of recent.
However I finally got around to getting it on some scales after removing all the metal and wiring.
As it sits with passenger seat and full of fluids is 1040kg. The wagon in its old form was 1270kg. So a pretty huge savings.... 230kg of s*** has been removed/replaced.
The coolest project at present is actually happening in Aussie. I have Scott Beeton a ex F1 aero dude designing a aero package. The idea is to still fit within schedule A rules. But we are looking for some serious down force.
The wagon was 3d scanned to help with 3d modelling and CFD.
Watching the 3d scanner work in real time was freaking mind blowing. The raw scan file was over 12Gb!IMG_2406 by Daniel McAulay, on Flickr

My first post here and not exactly the happiest of post lol. Anyway, recently I have been getting CEL when I cold start my 2007 Legacy GT spec.B. These CEL would stay on for a minute or two and then it would disappear. I scanned the code and its the infamous P1410 code for the secondary air pump valves being stuck open. I have spent a lot of time reading online including this website but nothing definitive. Just wondering what is the best course of action for me since I believe that the valves has not fully fail and maybe just being sticky? Is there a way for me to disable the air pump completely and keep the valves closed before it becomes stuck open (as I believe that exhaust gas can travel back up the pipe if its stuck open). This would be preferable as I then would not have to go in there and install blanking plates. Also noted that I have taken the car to subaru recently for the air pump relay recall and it said in the receipt that the secondary air pump was replaced? which I dont think thats right.
