You know, I had heard that somewhere before.......LMAO. But, I like to.

Especially when I live in a state that has coal-dust particles the size of a snowflake, salt that still finds its way on your vehicle 6mths after winter (somehow), and rain from factories that will melt your paint.

Tow strap since I put my front license plate where the tow hook goes.

Of course, I don't do a lot of dirt track driving so it's pretty silly, almost as silly as fog lights in the summertime.

Oh yes, I didn't notice - Kentucky - coal mines - reducing coal to coke -

You mentioned a wrap - what about a gray and black speckled wrap -

Hilarious! One big chunk of coal.

....well, I'll be kinda close. I'm getting my hood wrapped in gloss carbon fiber, so at least it'll be black.

Picked up the Subaru trunk lid liner for my FRS today from the local Subaru dealer. Realized upon getting home it didn't come with the clips to install. Does anyone know the part number for the clips? Couldn't find it...

Scuffed up my front passenger side bumper trying to reverse out of this really crappy parking in Whittier, when grabbing hotwings. The wings definitely cheered me up tho, I guess another thing to work on with her I suppose.

Nah, I wouldn't worry about it. When you are on that side, just take the advice of the fellow getting a BJ from an old lady - just don't look down -

Not sure if I should feel honored or upset that some spambot has decided to plant a suspicious link in my post.

If it's working, don't come knocking.

Finally made the decision to get some drivability mods without breaking the bank.

Picked up a 2013 stock header and midpipe for 250 MYR (about 58 USD), gutted the header and sold the contents for 200 MYR (46 USD). The previous owner wanted the midpipe to go as well, so it either goes to the scrap or to another person's hands and I essentially got the header for free.

FWIW I'm retaining the second cat down the line for myself and the environment.

Inside the cat:


Pieces gutted out. Fiber packing removed too (top right).


About 350 grams for the cat contents.


Whoops left a piece out.


Header on block end had some baked carbon in it, so getting a mini flap sander to clear it out first thing tomorrow.

Thanks for this, got my rattle sorted there too.

Funny though because mine is a 10mm bolt on both sides, and only the passenger side is loose.
