Re: Car shows 2016

All the dealer brochures I have from 92 through 97 show the wheel spokes slicing forward so yes, her rears are on backwards. Maybe it's from rotating omnidirectional tread tires or the Service...

Re: Car shows 2016

Laguna blue looks so right. There's a Canadian 97 that comes to Stratford every summer for the Theatre; I like comparing my Mica black 97 (gunmetal black alloys before powdercoating) to it as she...

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

Had the SVX out for a spell of chores while the Outback was in for a new exhaust pipe back of the cat. I cracked the joint plowing through a frozen snow berm at the foot of the driveway two days...

Re: Drones

Conn, I don't have a measurement. It was way up there and could have gone higher. I would have had I had the tilt control engaged. I was using the the beginner mode setting. I have a Horizon BLADE...

Re: Drones

basic video drones are pretty phenomenal. I dropped $1000 to have tilt & pan capability. Gotta say they are fun used judiciously in good weather. Go for the best price basic and work your way up if...

Re: power mirror switch relocation

Best way I've found to run wiring from the dashboard to the door - on any car - is to fish a long 1/2" dia - or smaller - clear vinyl tube through the rubber accordion cable protector, then feed...

Re: 1997 Canadian SVX one year later.

Thanks for the thumbs-up and for asking. This LSi is a labour of love & devotion. I was both lucky and shrewd to start with an 7 out of 10 car. It's now a 9.
Once I read up and knew the type of...

1997 Canadian SVX one year later.

It's been a year less a day since I drove this particular 1997 home to Stratford from Mike's Oakville driveway. I'd long ago decided if I was going to get one as a retirement toy it'd have to be a...

Re: A/C compressor

Slow leak or fast? Been there, done that. Diagnosis is a sequential step by step process, not guesswork.

Have the Condenser radiator checked for leaks or stone holes - it sits directly in front of...

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

You're in luck then, Reberto.
Since you're putting in a Subaru Forester radio the sub harness plugs into that radio no problem.
You will need the forward adapter to connect to the SVX's radio plug...

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

It's a straight forward procedure, Reberto, whether you have an original OEM or an aftermarket stereo installed. I chose to stay with the original radio - sounds spectacular enough to me.

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

Had the entire day off so bit the bullet, removed the radio cage and installed the OEM underseat Forester sub. First I put it under the driver's seat but it was 'too stimulating'. Moved it under the...

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

Couple of things this week.
Last weekend the car alarm started acting up, going off on its own - was a loose wire on the trunk latch switch.

Monday took the black graphite 17" 6-spoke summer...

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

It's been a looong winter.
Today I had the whole day off so tackled a list of minor tweaks on my buddy Bob's superb 1992 Pearl White.

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

First steps to add a 2006 Forester OEM under-seat subwoofer to the SVX.
Sub is a perfect fit under the passenger seat behind the tray. Too thick to fit under the driver's seat unless moved to top...

Re: SVX snow drifting

agreed. I have my SVX shod with Firestone Winterforce rubber and the grip and directional control is a revelation.
Surprisingly quiet on bare highway as well.
