I did an engine oil change (Rotella T6), transmission and and rear differential oils (Motul 300 75W90) were done to as I am approaching 30k miles... thanks Geoff @ Cygnus for the hookup on fluids.

LOL Robert, I'm not going to lie... the way you phrased doesn't exactly inspire confidence in a safe drive through the mountains.

Thanks for the enthusiasm though man!

Default Re: Deek's 08 STi - warranty rebuild, and then some

Got my roof rack installed (component info added to first post), not sure I'm going to stick with the Yakima Frontloader racks, might get Forklifts... If only I can find a solid/reliable quick-release solution for my BMX bike(s). The Frontloaders are about 1" too long because when the hatch is open it makes contact with the rubber stopper on the back of the rack. That's nothing a dremel can't remedy though.

Pardon the filth in the pictures, its been windy and dusty out here in the desert this week.







I also have the full HTAutos PU lip kit sitting in the garage, waiting for me to wrap in Hexis dry carbon vinyl.

Also, recently ordered the following which will get installed the weekend after I receive them...
- Whiteline Gearbox Mount Bushings/Positive Shift Kit (Ordered 2012.04.02)
- Whiteline Rear Diff Mount Inserts (Ordered 2012.04.02)
- Whiteline Front Control Arm Inner-Front Bushings (Ordered 2012.04.02)
- Whiteline Anti-Lift Kit Standard (Ordered 2012.04.02)

While I was out for lunch I noticed that the footpads from the roof racks were starting to move the vinyl (roof wrap) around. I went home to take them off so the vinyl could sit in the sun for the rest of the day and eliminate the bubbles (hopefully)... I'd really hate to have to rewrap it, took forever.

I'll have to get some paint protectant film and see if that helps at all.

No way, its not going anywhere... at least until its all crappy looking and needs to be replaced. I just need to find some way to protect it.
