New Timing Belt, Rear Sway Bar, and Trailer Hitch

I took my car down to a friend of my fathers that allows me to use the shop and all its glory! With free roam of the shop and access to a lift we made quick work of everything that we had to get done! Starting with the timing belt...

Wicked Big Meet 2012! Part 1

First off a BIG shout out to Subaru of New England who sent me to the show for free this year! I submitted a photo of myself and my car and a little caption about us and they selected me along with some other people to win two premium tickets! Thanks again! Here's the picture of all of us from their Instagram...
I'm the charming fellow in the blue shirt

Second off I have to say that this Wicked Big Meet was definitely the best one yet! I went last year and this one was a huge improvement over last years. There was much more to do and see and I didn't get bored as quickly as I did last year. Now onto the narrative...

We left around 6:00am or so for our 3 hour drive up to Stafford Springs, CT. It started out just three of us (Green LGT, Flat Black 2.5i, and myself) but we picked up the UGM STI right around the New York border and he stuck with us the rest of the way.

Please try to bear in mind that I took over 200 pictures and they simply all wont fit so I'll just get the highlights :)

Long Time No See!

Its been a while since I've posted on here! To be complete;y honest I was trying to sell my car to get a WRx or STI in white after seeing this picture...

This made me want one in the WORST way, but after realizing that I can't argue with a 33mpg commuter for right now I decided to keep my car. Restart the awesome!

After getting a nice clean wash, and vacuuming courtesy of the girlfriend ;)...

Note the new side skirts ;)

...The buying frenzy continued!

I ordered some more gold high temp paint so I can paint my summer wheels...
Need new paint and rubber

JDM Front 4 Pot brakes with Stainless steel lines for the front and rear, and a COBB 24mm sway bar to match the front Eibach one my girlfriend also bought me:)

Went to the Englishtown Swap meet too and picked up some cool stuff. Got a SOHC JDM License plate for my front window...

Which one looks better?
and some old Subaru service manuals which I thought were pretty awesome. For $10 how could I say no?

Also since the weather is finally getting nice enough to use the bike rack I put on not to long ago (Had a write up but deleted all the pictures) I started going on rides with my friend to get him in shape for the Navy.

That's his Cougar next to me
All ready to go!

That's the general overview of whats been going on but be sure to stay tuned since I'll be updating this blog again!
