Re: Modded headlights wiring

Yes and no. I tested wires under the fuse box in engine bay, found one that was powered at ignition, then decided I didn't want to splice into it. I really wanted a factory look to where I'd have a...

Modded headlights wiring

Looking for wiring suggestions.
My headlights are modded with halos and I originally wired them to come on with the projectors. I have to get in there to change out ballasts and am considering...

Re: A leap of faith

Good idea!
May as well enjoy it the way it was meant to be enjoyed. The road.

If you can park in a handicapped spot that's half the battle for avoiding damage, at least in my experience.

Re: Wheel opinion please

Re: Wheel opinion please

Technical insight will have to come from someone wiser than I.

I run 235/45 17 with no issues as far as I know. They are supposed to be the same diameter as stock or very close and you already...

Re: Wheel opinion please

I like the Hyundai wheels; to me they are a modernized version of the stock wheels. They might even look better than the JDM BBS. Not enough so, though, in my opinion, to swap them out. If you do,...

Re: asking to cut the heart out of one of our great SVX cars

There are 2 Syncro Vanagons for sale right now in the classifieds on TheSamba dot com.

$49,000 for one.
$57,000 for the other.

These are amazing machines worthy of the 3.3- in my opinion. ...

Re: Optima Battery in SVX

Wow! Thanks for putting the solution in my lap.

When I had mice getting into my garage I had to learn that lesson the hard way, too, until I found a way to seal it off from the little...

Re: Optima Battery in SVX

Thanks, guys, for the Optima education! I think I will look for a battery tender. It's probably what's needed.

I like the idea of hard-wiring the battery tender! I already did the wiring mod,...

Optima Battery in SVX

Has anyone had problems with Optima batteries?

I had one not holding a charge, bought 1/17/2016, replaced 10/3/2017. Now, it's happening again but it could be me. I should probably leave it on a...

Re: Wheel Weight Question

You can remove the wing but will have to deal with 4 holes. You could put caps in the holes if you can find any that would be waterproof. OR, you could buy a trunk from a wingless car.

Re: 97 Svx

Maybe Polo Green just sounds more upscale.

4 Runner looks good! I'd read that the 4.3 were hard to keep cool and some other problems I don't recall. Considered a 302, also.

Thanks for the...

Re: 97 Svx

I don’t doubt you; just didn’t know about it. Thanks for sharing that info. Wondering what the two colors look like side by side.

PS. Got any pic of your 4Runner with the 4.3? Just sold my ‘87...

Re: Just an interesting nose mod

That mod is on here somewhere and I can't find it. It's really nice. He posted a lot on the whole process, including design ideas leading up to this. I jut can't find it right now.

Re: Firearms

Everyone in Wyoming owns firearms. Most for hunting but it's not a safe place for criminals.
Your new toy looks to be way too much fun and now I'm shopping again. :)

Re: Is 5w-40 oil alright to use?

Running Mobil 1 5W-40 right now, 90-some thousand miles on the engine. Ran it for 10k miles last time and the old oil looks almost new. BUT, I'm not having my oil tested. So, all I can say for...

Re: What have you done to your SVX (or other Subaru) today?

Your SVX looks great! I've had my AMRs for a few years now- first batch- and been happy with them, too. You bring up a good point about ride height affecting the bearing noise. My bearings are a...

Re: Just playing with Photoshop

So hard to tell what it'll look like in real life. What looks Corvette-ish in the photo might look Chevette-ish in real life.
So, I hope Dr. Atom gets it done so we call see the results.

Re: Just playing with Photoshop

Vacation is when they open the cage door just long enough to let you think you are free. That was 3 years ago.

I will try to get a sketch going for the front end of the hood.
