Re: How is the stereo wired up in a 2003 model?

Sorry for the late reply. Kind of forgot about it. I got the radio installed. I couldn't use a 2DIN adapter I ordered I thought I would need. I had to drill holes in the factory bracket to mount the radio. The harness adapter works but I'm not hearing any bass from the bass cannon so it's dead. Ther...

Re: How is the stereo wired up in a 2003 model?

Mine had the premium and I looked at one yesterday with the non premium (no changer/tweeters) and the connector looks the same. Mine system is... very custom, so not a lot of wires left from stock. I don't think it matters though because the stock tweeters wire to the door speakers and the sub is i...

Best trim coating I've found so far

I bought some of this stuff last year and it held up pretty good over the winter. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Carworx-Refinish-Restorer-500ml/352708675073?epid=1254009667&_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item521f134601:g:VNsAAOSw8gRdHVMa&enc=AQADAAAB0KX%2FKt4E1xf3SDqEdBclaYaV3fQ7SyqADK85vF1NkH30Ynn4vk16xRBM%2Bm...

How is the stereo wired up in a 2003 model?

Years ago I made a plate to replace the 6 disc CD changer and cubby hole to mount a Sirius radio: https://i222.photobucket.com/albums/dd148/turbofiat/Subaru/BajaSirius6.jpg I was piggybacking off my Dad's subscription (was actually a yearly birthday present). One day he said they wanted to raise the...

Re: Don't waste your money on these LED bulbs!

None taken. I once tried using H4 to R2 bulb adapters in my Trabant. So I could use H4 bulbs in my R2 housings. The 7" H4 replacement lenses that would replace US spec sealed beam headlights won't fit the buckets. The alignment slots are different. And they dont use the same method of holding the le...

Re: Got my Baja stuck in the snow yesterday!

Sorry for the delay. I had been dealing with this snow! Wednesday I got dad's tractor and used his mowing machine to knock down some of this snow.

Re: Don't waste your money on these LED bulbs!

I've got them installed correctly. There's only one way the can go in.

The Silverstars I had been using would cast at least 50 feet or more.

I don't use Silverstar low beams. The only last about 3 months at the most. At $20 a pop they are not worth it.

I didn't hit that tree. The snow did that damage.

Don't waste your money on these LED bulbs!

I bought some of these LED high beam bulbs off Ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/2x20-2828-SMD-9005-HB3-100W-High-Power-White-LED-Bulb-Daytime-Running-Light/131869948170?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 When I tested them in my garage, they seemed to work great. Nice and brigh...

Got my Baja stuck in the snow yesterday!

I bought this car new 16 years ago and not once have I ever got stuck in the snow. Until now. I've even done doughnuts out in the back yard behind my garage and never got stuck. But that snow was frozen solid. This snowstorm we got hit with in the southeast was particularly nasty. It was one of thos...

Re: Bucking issue cured with 89 octane?

Why were you using high octane in a NA in the first place? Running higher octane than required (within what's available at the pump) shouldn't cause any production vehicle issues, I'm just curious. I've always ran 87 octane since day one for the past 77K miles. I did run 93 octane to the beach 10 y...

Bucking issue cured with 89 octane?

For awhile my '03 Baja has developed this bucking issue between 2500 to 3000 rpms in 3rd gear puttering along. As if I am taking my foot off the accelerator. It only does this under cruise. Under accelerator it runs smooth and idles smooth. If I shift and drop the RPMs down a bit it tends to go away...

Re: Any experience with Coverking Neoprene seat covers?

If you are wondering about fit, I have a set of their spacer mesh seat covers for my Fiat 124 Spider. The seats came out of an 87 Honda CRX. It was much cheaper than having them reupholstered. I would imagine the neoprene would hold up better. I would avoid the spacer mesh material because it is sho...

Re: Any mountain bikers in Baja land?

I used to go. But have not been in over 10 years since our group fell apart. I made my own custom bike rack using some eye hooks, turnbuckles, wingnuts and a 2X4. But only got to use it once. The pieces that the wheels attach to cost me the most (like $20 for both or each, can't remember). http://i2...
