  1. DIY and 3rd party Maintenance, How To's & Tools
    About 8 months ago, I bought a steering wheel off of eBay with the heating option on it from a junkyard in Canada. I then became determined to fully retrofit the steering wheel to as much of an OEM spec as I possibly could. Here is a full DIY on a retrofitted steering wheel, which you can use...

    Soooo... I wasn't able to find many 1st gen Crosstreks that have had their headlight housing blacked out (DIY style). I decided to take the dive and do it myself this past weekend. What I was trying to go for was an JDM/OEM sort of look. I didn't want it to look cheap or look like a heavily...

    So I hit a semi tire re-tread a while back. It did some cosmetic damage to the front bumper and black body cladding. It also damaged the engine “mud guard”. This started the itch to upgrade to aluminum skid plates. I looked at various skid plates online and really like primitive racing’s...

    Plastidip is fun! It allows you to do all kinds of projects. My latest one was to blackout the hood of my Venetian Red Crosstrek. The color contrast is frickin awesome!! I created a video detailing the entire process for anyone who might be interested in doing the same thing or to just learn...

    Does anyone happen to know the dimensions and distance between mounting screws for the stock tweeters? Thinking about installing these: Tymphany BC25SC55-04 1" Square Frame Tweeter if I can adapt the mounting hardware from the stock tweets. Thanks, Matt

    Does anyone own a set of Rhino Ramps? I am wondering how high they are at their tallest point. I was thinking with such a high ground clearance as on the Crosstrek, maybe I could purchase 4 of the ramps and drive up on all 4 at the same time. I can't really find good info. Someone said they...

    Hi guys, I figured I would quickly post my painted stock grille for those who were wondering what it looks like. You can mask off everything that isn't chrome, but I removed those pieces from the rest of the grille. If you have nay questions feel free to ask. Nick

    I figured since the interiors are basically the same that I would provide the steps I did to install a BlackVue DR650GW-2CH dashcam. It can probably work with any other 2 channel system. I didn't take any pictures of my Power Magic Pro install as I'm still cleaning that portion up. Link to my...
