Took some unpaved road on the way home from exploring. my 5 year old OEM tires weren't ready for the rainy and rocky unpaved roads. Can only managed 40 km/hr and i still sense some grip issues. Time to wash the wheels again!
Added SS3 amber fog light replacements
Blacked out front grill except for shield
Added Crawford Baja AOS (well, the shop did)
30k Maintenance (again at the shop)
Mud Flaps (black w orange logo)
Rhino 15x7 wheels and AT tires
Replaced chrome beltline during hail repair work
Interior red LEDs (my battle lamps)
Well took Subie down the mountain today for her annual check up (24 month 25000km service).
Noticed as I waited around that a Subaru authorised smash repairer was handily located just across the road. Subie is now booked in for a little cosmetic surgery there tomorrow. Also wandered up the road and around the corner to the dealership to check out the XV Hybrid and found the lot filled almost entirely with XVs of every colour and trim level. Quite a change from a year ago when it was largely Ozzies and Fozzies and you could get an XV as long as it was Obsidian Grey. The sales figures could be interesting when released next year. The Forester has been the most popular model here for so long. I wonder if that's about to change? 🐨
Yes. But much nicer than the last few Autumns when everything was bone dry.
Getting mine detailed tomorrow. She's got some scratches on the bonnet from trees in high winds and some down her side from people not taking care when parking alongside. I'd considered buying proper buffing/polishing tools and kit but worried I might stuff it because the dark colour with some scratches deep into the clear coat. Also, YouTube tells me swirl marks are the enemy. Found a lovely company that will touch her up and detail her properly for about the same price. The chap that runs the company loves the XVs and pearl finishes. Where are you headed for the family getaway? 🐨
