Digging those scoops. Went to the site. everything they make is sold out LOL. It states the scoops are raw. how did you paint / prep those?
Didn’t paint, just adhered them as is. They match the door trims well. Cleaned window with rubbing alcohol and stuck some 3M double sided tape to the scoops and stuck on.

installed a trailer hitch, went pretty smoothly through I did have to grind a small slot out of two of the holes to get all the hardware up in there:

used my transmission jack & a piece of wood to hold the hitch level & crank it up to the bolts, had to be careful not to push the bolts into the frame

took about an hour & a half, not too bad. Now it's time to toss the bike rack on & hit the trails

I'm not planning on installing a hitch any time soon but from some of he pics I've seen here it seems you lose some clearance, departure angle with the non OEM hitches. Correct?

I hadn't considered that but yes, it does appear that those are two consequences of the hitch I installed. Not too concerned about it though, this thing is a pavement princess, anytime I leave asphalt I take alternate transportation :ROFLMAO:

come to think of it, I routinely bash the crap out of the trailer hitch on the TJ too, usually when coming off a big rock. Ahh well, it's either that or the gas tank skid...

LOL, we're pretty unusual in this neck of the woods in that we don't have a Range Rover or Lexus Land Cruiser for grocery store runs... 😸

I went to DMV site last night to renew reg and since the PCV is emissions related, they would not let me renew till its fixed.
I'd heard rumors about that... good to know!

DIY engine oil/filter change with Pennzoil Platinum 0W20 full synthetic SN+ and the blue Subaru OEM filter. Upon rotating the tires I found a screw in the tread of one tire. The tire hasn't been losing air so I'm hoping the screw is not all the way through. If it is I may need a new tire as the screw is exactly one inch from the edge of the tread.

No one’s done anything in the last 8 days? Didn’t do anything to the Crosstrek specifically, but we got it a big brother/sister on Saturday. Went to Toyota to test drive a new RAV4 and drove home in a slightly used, lifted 2020 Outback for the wife. Only 3,500 miles on the odo but got it for $9K less than the sticker price when it was new. Went into service with first owner in May. Picking up a set of all seasons and saving the KO2s for the deep snow we get. Need to install a towing receiver too. First time in 25 years we don’t own a Toyota.:oops:

Lazy person oil change today....

Being tempted, but it isn't a Limited trim level, and I will not do another black vehicle.

The yellow lipstick trim interior is 🤔🤮 IMO.
