    I'll be redoing both the door and the rear again later this year as its rusting again. thanks for the tip, I've since learned a lot more and watched countless videos on bodywork/rust repair.

    Who knows, I may get it re-sprayed through a family friend's shop once body work is addressed. I was quoted an amazing price for quality work (uncle had a paint job done there)

    Ya usually if you do everything at once in body work its a one time prep so you save alot of money on labour. cool man post some picks when its done

    Crystal clear. Didn't take a finished picture as it was too hot Sunday.

    Also repainting grill trim piece gloss black as it has lots of stone chips from this past year.

    Thanks.

    I'm stuck with it till it dies so may as well enjoy it. As much as I hate on this thing and all the grief it causes, I still love it when everything is working just right.

    They say I'm an addict but I don't have a problem with alcohol or drugs. I'm an addict because I can't live without bass. Car audio is my addiction. And it will never change.

    Two close trade-ins but I still have it. The engine still runs very strong, suspension not so much. You still have yours?

    Went through similar feelings, except I didn't have your energy/motivation/care to still give it much TLC for small stuff lol good on you though. Freshening her up a bit won't do anything but make you feel better about it!

    Would be nice to see the finished product. I purchased the 3M kit a while back, but haven't got around to doing it though as my lenses aren't that bad yet.

    Nice to see you are still giving her some TLC.

    What's the issue(s) with your suspension btw?

    My baby turned 13 years old this month, nearing 330,000 and I still treat her like she was new lol.

    Lots of clunking and rattling. Starting to sound 10 years old.

    The 3M Finished product wasn't that great. Slightly less cloudy. My headlights have been done 3 times now, they're toast.

    Nope. Mines been gone since December 2016 before my daughter was born. Got the forester. Which got written off a month and a a half later. And the Outback I absolutely hate after all the issues I've had. So I'm back to another 3. An 08 GT Sedan that got a 2.0 swapped into it at some point in Its life.
