Just bought this gem, it needs a front diff but it was only 250.00. So thought I’d clean it up a bit.

Thank you! Very excited to own my first Subaru. (I always thought it’d be a Brat). Scrubbed down the wheels today. So much brake dust! It was a balmy 30 degrees. Lol

Found a new project to do lol. I neglected to close my hood tight the other day when i was playing with the lights. Looks like im replacing the hood, grille and windshield. Good times lol. It looks like the hood and grille are the same on my 02 Outback but i will do some checking.

On a better note. I got my LED bulbs today. Here are the before and afters. I polished up the spare housings the other day. I cant wait to see how they do when i go to work at 4am tomorrow.

When you change bulb type, make sure you aim the headlights after. Pretty simple, just need a screwdriver, 40 ft of flat space next to a wall, a tape measure, and some electrical tape.

Where in NH are you? I'm near Nashua. I have a Legacy grille you can have if you want to pick it up (see pic). It has 1 or 2 broken bolt tabs. There is also a guy on FB marketplace selling a Baja hood in Fitchburg MA for around $100. There may still be a red hood from an 03 at Holland's in Billerica too.
LEDs without projectors will blind oncoming traffic and really won't give you that much more light output, they will be brighter up close but won't be a good focused beam for distance. Kaizen has some really nice headlight options and I believe he sells retrofit kits for DIY www.kaizenlighting.com

Im in Troy. I found a hood and grille in Mass thats even the correct color. I bought some good LEDs from Auxbeam. I thought i would need to adjust my lights but they dont seem to bother anyone yet. If they do i will adjust them.

My 250.00 Baja is in need of a lot more than just a transmission. So this is what I’m doing...hint there’s 2 of them and they get us all in the end. Lol
