Re: Body Trim Buttons

Jesus are these coming straight from Japan? [smilie=holyshit.gif] I've bought antique rifles for less shipping than this.

Re: 2006 Baja Sport

Looks like 1A Auto makes replacement axles for the NA too, and hey they're on sale- $104 for both! https://www.1aauto.com/subaru-cv-axle-shaft-pair-trq-csa82444/i/1aacs00011?f=731184&y=2005 Bear in mind, the Turbo and NA drivetrains are different so the axles are also different and not compatible be...

Re: Truck bed lined Baja

That's the thing I'm concerned about- you actually can't paint the bare bed without damaging it and other things. bed1.jpg bed2.jpg These are pics of my bed when I took the liner off to clean it. You CAN NOT paint over the metal. If you do, you will have to rewire the tail lights, seal the gaps in ...

Re: Truck bed lined Baja

Wait, SpencerKG, do you mean spraying over the factory plastic bedliner or removing the bedliner entirely and spraying the bare metal?

Re: 2006 Baja Sport

Hey there, have an 06 sport myself. If the price is under 10k then it's a steal for that mileage. Both front axles will run about $600 each with dealership pricing. The headlights are easily replaceable as are the headlight housings. The sound may be one or more of the wheel bearings going bad or th...

That is one sexy sport! Excellent job on the mod!
Question: What model bush bar and how does it mount and did the bumper bottom crossmember have to be cut out in order to mount it?

Re: 2019 Subaru Ascent

Got some pics of the 2019 Ascent while the Baja was getting serviced. https://guasitory.neocities.org/writeups/scoobytruck%20pics/0928181044.jpg So it's based on the Impreza frame but uses a lot of the styling from the current-gen Legacy, matter fact the headlights are exactly the same as the Legacy...

Re: How to change a turn signal light walkthrough

Hey, at least it's not Hyundai! Family used to have a 2002 Santa Fe and my god... what at absolute engineering abomination. Almost once a month like clockwork a bulb would go out, a sensor would crap out, a belt would fail, and things would start rattling for no reason. We ended up trading it in for...

Re: How to change a turn signal light walkthrough

The rear was complicated enough, but do-able. What about the fronts? :? Pretty much the same. Unscrew the 3 10mm bolts holding the headlight housing in (2 front, one on top), then pry the housing off the body panel. Twist the turn signal socket then pull out. Next, twist the bulb itself countercloc...

You didn't take it while driving! Don't you know you're only supposed to photo your dash while you're doing at least 80mph in heavy traffic (and include both factors in the pic).
Okay you caught me- it's photoshopped. Here's the original unedited pic.

Re: What to look for in my first Baja?

Hey there! Checking out a Baja is just like checking out any other used car. Only thing to really look out for head gasket problems, as this engine is notorious for blowing them if not properly maintained, and rust. Surface rust is fine, but if the frame is starting to rot, you'll likely have some s...

Re: Hoping for some Baja clarification

Don't feel bad! The only one crazy here is... well... ME [smilie=hellyeah.gif] Your gaskets *should* be good for the rest of the car's life. Just keep an eye on your temp gauge, check your oil and refill the coolant every so often, and religiously follow the maintenance schedule. Oil change every 3,...
