Well it happened again.  Its been 2.5 years, but I've gone and purchased another car.  The WRX was traded in at 124k miles, and I picked up this 2007 Legacy GT Limited in "diamond grey metallic*" with about 23k on her.


Apart from its factory deficiencies (note the Sebring-like grandma grill) the car is pretty much perfe... wait a second.  Oh NO YOU DINNNT.

Yup.  Like any dealership, my friends up in Salem insist on putting stickers on their cars as soon as they come into inventory.  Well f that, I am no rolling advertisement.  My special heat gun will make short work of this sticker.


Ugh, its actually a pretty high quality decal: all the letters are individual.  No matter, the heat gun makes it come off really nicely and the sticker hasn't been on very long.  Yes, I know the heat gun looks conspicuously like a blow dryer.


Jesus, the small stuff is all completely separate too.  You bastards.

I got everything off without too much effort.  If you try this at home, don't be stupid and use harsh cleansers or anything hard to get the sticker off.  All you need is a little heat (not a lot) and some fingernails.  Its pretty much perfect now instead of having that ugly sticker. 


 Next up (inventory willing) I'll be replacing the grandma grille with a knockoff of the JDM** sport grille.

*Diamond Grey Metallic is Subaru's name.  I like to call it "almost black."  It has 99% of the coolness of a black car but seems to lack the awfulness of looking at a less than perfect black paintjob in direct sunlight.  It will probably hide dirt a little better too, but it still polishes up to a nice rich shine.   

** JDM - Japanese Domestic Market - all the stuff Japanese car companies use domestically.  Typically its better looking\performing whatever and thus desirable.

Love the new car (and the heat gun). I miss the blue car already though :(

“Again, self-reported feelings of unpleasantness and anxiety reflected participants’ physiological responses such that perceived levels of unpleasantness and anxiety were lowest when participants were in possession of their iPhone,” the paper notes.

Maybe because there’s less real estate to push the pixels around, it felt as fast or even faster than my 6s, the way a little sports car feels faster than a big sedan even when they’re going the same speed.

I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your website.

It appears as if some of the written text within your posts
are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know
if this is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.

I write a leave a response when I like a article on a blog or I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. Usually it is triggered by the fire displayed in the post I looked
at. And after this post – my extended adolescence.
I was actually excited enough to drop a thought ;-) I do have 2 questions for you if it’s
okay. Could it be just me or do a few of the responses come
across as if they are written by brain dead folks?

:-p And, if you are posting on other places, I’d like to keep up with you.
Would you make a list all of your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know
a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the
message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is excellent
blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

of course like your web-site but you have to check the
spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of
them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to tell the reality
however I’ll certainly come back again. (URL) - 30 07 17 - 14:58
