What'd you use to clean them? Gold seems to be the worst for brake dust, that or white.

Default BlueScooby's 06 STI

I actually just use a dedicated sponge (not used on the rest of the car) and the water hose...

I usually wipe them down every week or two so it comes off very easily.

Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI

So yesterday I ended up having to work to help get a large project out the door by today, so I've got today off

Its been a productive day for the subie.

Installed a umbrella mount on the trunk lid after stealing the idea from khunter25. I did mine on the trunk lid though to avoid knocking it off when putting big "stuff" in the trunk...


Installed my boy's convertable car seat. Matching Recaros


Also washed the car, windex'd the windows, cleaned the headlights with Plast-x (already cleaned the wheels), cleaned my MAF sensor, and mocked up a cardboard cover for the PS Cooler in the winter.

Been a good day

Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - New pics!

Well, its a day later than promised, but here they are:

I tried to get a few different angles, but I was only on lunch break so I was limited with what I could do... Ideally I'll have a better location and a more 4pm-ish afternoon sun to do some better pictures later.

Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - Gauges Ordered

I've been wanting oil temp/oil press gauges for a long time, and I've been getting more paranoid, largely because I have no way to know how the car is running without some gauges... Checking your oil periodically only gets you so far.

So I ordered the SMY cluster, an oil temp, and an oil press gauge. It'll be nice to get those in and stop worrying.

Fun fact, I originally was going to buy all three from RSD, but i happened to click on the SMY site, and saved $100 on my order! That sort of thing normally doesn't happen, but I'm not going to complain about my savings
