Since it's out of view, you can use whatever shade of metal or anti-rust paint and/or primer you might have laying around the garage to keep costs down. Undercoating or bedliner works too if you have'em. I personally wouldn't pay $15 for a can of WRB just for this, but since your car is super duper clean it might be something you'd want to do anyways. I'd recommend a nice coat of gray high build primer before you apply the WRB though. It's your choice, really!

Yeah, I figured since it would be out of sight that it wouldn't matter the color. Thanks for the advice, I had something similar in mind. I second guess myself a lot.

Garvin, hope to see you there. I just raised the boost 2 more pounds and added timing on Ross' car. I'm damn curious to see what it will do. Run you car as-is for a good baseline. Ross' best Cobb stage 2 time was 8.6, mine was 8.40.

Well, I'll see if I can make it out there...

Too bad you couldn't make it today. We were the only Subaru running today. Ross has some practice to do, but the car definitely has 7's in it. Best pass was 8.1 @ 86 (1.84 60ft). He had so much wheel spin that the car was hitting the rev limiter while spinning and cutting, or the LC was doing something funny.

Damn, those are great videos, that is a quick wagon! If 8.1 was quickest, he easily could put down 7's. That spinning is killing the times of course but more practice is always good. I know I could use some. Hopefully next week if you're headed out there, I'll make some time.

Coming up on 30k, so I gotta plan when to change all the fluids and find a place to do it since my work schedule is different from the rest of the world. I hope to have the rest of the brake parts ordered soon so then I can mount the new(to me) wheels!

Welp, been a while since I've updated the journal, but it's been a little over a year since I got the car and I still love it! I know the mods have been slow with this car, but I will be doing upgrades real soon here, and more in late July/early August.

For now, I've ordered some more detailing bits, and just now placed an order on FredBeans for some Subaru Extra-S, LSD oil, and some ATE Super Blue. I already have a Wix filter, coolant, T6, and some other parts waiting to go on the car, so it'll be a busy couple days I'm sure. I believe I have everything covered for a complete 30k maintenance. Let me know if I've forgotten anything else.

Additionally, once my headlight is sold I will be ordering all the brake upgrade parts and Killer B parts as well. I know I've said it before, but it's getting there!!
