Some quick night pics in the garage after sliding around in the snow a bit on the new BFGoodrich Traction T/As:

Didn't push it hard enough for it to go sideways though. Weather as of right now: freezing rain.

Nice; good to see that you're not running the RE92s in the snow!

We're in store for at least 25+cm of snow for tonight and I can't wait to play around with Emily.

I know. We had a storm just one week ago that dumped about 10 cm of the white stuff, and another 25 tonight :D

You know what? If that was a 5MT, it would make a great project car! Start with a full STI engine swap, then exhaust, suspension, and maybe a 6MT tranny swap.

A USDM Legacy RSK!

The Legacy that I plan on buying will definitely have a 5MT --and be a sedan. I've been reading forums on turbo swaps and such and it seems to be quite the undertaking.

If my parents end up just giving me this Leg, the first thing that I'm going to acquire are some new rims (Impreza WRX rims probably), then I'll get a rear spoiler (the OE wagonspoiler), a full exhaust replacement, GT-B suspension, and some better brakes. I might repaint it once the paint starts fading or something...Hmm...

This model (http://www.nfscars.net/forum/showthread.php?t=19887) will be the basis for testing out visual replacements. :D

New pics after washing off all the salt from the snowstorms we've had:

Bought some Subaru rubber mats and a hood deflector (which will get here in 3 days or so).

That would look sweet with GT headlights. Have you considered painting the mirrors/door handles/body molding Wintergreen to match the car?

I might acquire GT headlights once I get myself some dough. And yes, it would look better with the black parts painted the same colour as the rest of the car but first I gotta get some touch-up paint and fix some scratches and dents on several parts of the car. I also just might get a 03-04 front bumper in WGM.

As for the Forester...I'm probably not going to do anything to it till after we've paid the thing off in two years.

Woke up this morning to a phone call telling me that my hood deflector had arrived at the dealership. So naturally, I went after lunch and picked it up then installed it. Install took about an hour and a half with most of an hour figuring what the hell was going on in the instruction manual. I swear it's more confusing than graphical convolution of a cosine function with a exponential. But here's the pics:

Nice. Are you planning on doing anything with the grille? Outback grille, perhaps?

Dead bugs suck...so I washed it.

Pic of the soap on the front end when getting rid of all the bug-juice on my headlights.

Legacys are FTW. Especially wagons.

LOL at the bug-juice.
