Got the windows tinted today. Usually done/included at time of purchase around here, but was not due to CV19 reductions in staffing. Looks much better now!

Not much, but I ended up replacing the plastic engine cover for my car after accidentally breaking the tab on the original one. Washed her, got a new detailing kit and can't wait to use it soon.


Also found a paint chip on the hood =(

Ordered up a new "Package Tray Trim Panel Assembly" and third brake assembly that the tint shop destroyed.

I had confidence these guys wouldn't butcher my baby...they do 86's for our dealership whenever we sell one. But sure enough while driving to work this morning (a week after taking the car back from the tint shop) I hear my third brake light rattling. A quick look in the rear view mirror shows me that the third brake isn't sitting right in its little pedestal...closer inspection shows me the full extent of what happened.

They ripped the brake assembly out, wrecking the clips and wiring to the light (which I assume isn't lighting up anymore, but that's besides the point, the housing itself needs replacement and the light and assembly are one piece). Also, the "tray trim panel" and the third brake pedestal are one piece...they apparently didn't know or care to investigate about that, so they tore the pedestal from the tray, and attempted to RTV or urethane the whole thing back together.

In the end, they might have gotten away with it had they actually clicked the clips/fasteners for the trim panel itself, but they didn't--which is why it was flopping around rattling on the glass.


They are paying for the parts.

I am always apprehensive about sending my car to a shop for work. More often than not, they find a way to mess something up

Didn't mention anything before, but I'm trying to install some extended wheel studs.

Got both rear axle nuts off today thanks to a 6-point Pittsburg impact socket. For all the shit Harbor Freight gets, at least their shit works when necessary.

Now I'm stuck trying to separate the axle itself from the wheel hub. Took a mallet to it. Pretty sure I removed everything, including the sensor and hub bolts. Not sure what I'm doing wrong as it seems everybody else has had no trouble removing them. More force? Take a big ass chisel to it?

Suggestions appreciated. Don't want to pay a shop to do this and I'd rather learn to do things myself.

That's something I'll look into. Any chance of separating the wheel hub assembly or popping the axle off of the diff on accident if I do this?

Sunk so much money into tools already... really hoping I won't need one considering how new the car is (yes, it's 4 years but still).

Mine is the same age, but living in New England means there are plenty of rusted up things under the car that won't come out gracefully when the time comes. Not sure where you are, but Subaru in general isn't well known for not rusting no matter where you are.

Updated the taillights on my '15 to the '17+ OEMs. They look a lot nicer than I expected.

I finished up painting the passenger side calipers, then swapped in new pada all around.
Finished off Sunday with a full wheels off detail, and a beautiful Sunday evening drive.
