Working window switch should help a few people out here. I had to replace my pass window switch a few years ago.

well finally found a new to me front fender in the right color, was quite a trip, almost 800 miles, so next weekend going to install it and probably clean and winter prep what i can.

I was recently helping a buddy out to fix his impreza so we hit a few junk yards and i hav seen a few tribecas there. what surprised me is material quality between original and 08+

first the leather seat, first gen got nice black perforated pleather,08+ got this off-gray cheap looking pleather that you sweat on no matter what.

Door weather seals i've seen 5 or 6 newer ones, they all had rips in the weather seal in the middle of b-pillar, all the old ones had good intact gaskets?

Like what was subaru thinking? Lets take our failing model stip it of the better things and stick a saab face on it, that will sell for sure?

well got some work done to her,

first thing on the list was replacing the drivers side fender as mine had a little mishap and was rusting and dented

before:

and after:

then i had to pull out a dent on the other fender, someone swiped the car about a year ago
dent before:

and after, still not perfect but a whole lot better:


Then i tackled minor rust spot on the the door:


during and sorry no after pic:



and probably the best looking mod, blacked out headlights, since the bumep had to come off i knew it was time to do them.

Awesome work!

Not sure how you uploaded your pics but you might consider scaling them down, I had to zoom way out to see them clearly.

You ANIMAL!!!

THAT'S the way to do a headlight mod, just freakin pry em apart like a pair of coconuts and have your way with them!! Non-servicable my a$$!

That's AWESOME!!!

it only takes about 5 minutes with a heat gun to split them open, not my first time doing headlight mods,
