It’s here! Hopefully I can start working on it this weekend.
Some of you probably remember that I bought and fixed a $500 2001 Subaru LegacyGT wagon a few years ago. It’s racked up close to 300,000 miles, 40,000 of which I put on.
My replacement door showed up today.
It’s been awhile. I don’t even know who most of you jerks are anymore.
I wants it.
It runs, it drives, it cuts grass.
Useless lump out, useful lump in. Now for wiring.
And parts. And 3 dead hooker trunk. And original first aid kit.
This is my new car. I bought it January 1st for $500, missing the bumper, passenger side front fender, transmission, and some other little bits. The hood was smashed, and the passenger side headlight support was bent out of shape. I got a bunch of junkyard parts and put it back together. Finally got it drive able in…
Here’s a couple.
So here's a present.
It took two trips, a friend, my sister (one of them came on each trip), a few thousand curse words, a pry bar and multiple sockets, hammers, screwdrivers, ratchets, wrenches, and sidecutters, a couple straps, a couple jacks, one of the junkyard's engine hoists, and being soaked in 33 degree water, but I got it!
Went to Pic-a-Part today, there was a 2000 L sedan and a 2001 Outback. I got some of the stuff I need. Got a headlight, inner fender, hood support (but I forgot the fastener thingy), 2 Outback fog light grills, a factory amp to sell, and some misc. trim pieces, upgrade parts, and fasteners.
While it was "warm" this weekend, I worked on getting the bent metal straightened. Its better. Not perfect, but better.
Anyhoo, I have a new Subaru. This is the third one I've owned, and the fourth one to call our driveway home.
