    Re: 98legwag's 98 Legacy L Wagon-10/22 New Speakers

    Went to a friend's house for a little install/repair day:

    My friend's black GT needed the exhaust fixed.

    My wagon got new speakers (cheap Sony Explodes) in all 4 doors.

    Other friend's silver GT got HIDs in the fogs. He just rebuilt his motor and now some other stuff to fix too.

    Re: 98legwag's 98 Legacy L Wagon-10/30 LGT Rear Sway Bar

    Went to a pick and pull and got a rear sway bar from a 98 LGT. Took all of 20 mins to swap my old stock bar for this one. Car handles so much better now. I hope to get more pics of the car after I get a decent weekend to detail it.

    Re: 98legwag's 98 Legacy L Wagon-11/7 GT Fog Lights and OB S

    Put on fog lights. They are not wired up at the moment. Will hopefully get done in the next few weeks. I am trying to decide between Silver Star bulbs to match the headlights or yellow Hella bulbs. Suggestions welcome!

    Also installed front and rear sway bars from an Outback. The L has different mounts around the bushings on the front sway bar vs the GT/Outback. The uses bolts and tabs like on the back while the GT/Outback uses two bolts. A friend and I had to make mounts on the chassis for the front sway bar. The new mount plate will get welded in place soon.

    Nice. I vote for yellow bulbs. The Hella bulbs I have aren't overly yellow, but are enough to definitely increase visibility. I don't think they are so yellow that law enforcement would harass you over them, but they will still contrast nicely with your Silverstars.

    Re: 98legwag's 98 Legacy L Wagon-11/13 Old Paint

    This picture really shows how old/bad the paint is on my car. I plan on detailing it before the winter.

    Re: 98legwag's 98 Legacy L Wagon-11/24 100W Fogs

    Last weekend my friend and I independently wired up my fog lights. While detailing the car today I cleaned the fog lights and sprayed them with clear coat and put in 100 watt Hella Yellowstars. The fog lights would light up a little in front of the car with stock bulbs. Now the light goes further and reflects back better.

    Re: 98legwag's 98 Legacy L Wagon-11/27 NEW PICS!

    Went and did a photo shoot with friends after selling my grill to Geckoboy86. My friend took alot of pics so I will try to get some of his. These two are from my phone. The black GT belongs to Rubie_25GT. I'm trying to get him to make a MR1 thread. The silver GT belongs to a friend who is trying to get his SLI account activated.

    Re: 98legwag's 98 Legacy L Wagon-12/4 Outback Hood

    Finally got my hood with scoop. Also got a wagon spoiler that is/was the same color as my car. The paint on the spoiler is horrible so I ordered paint and clear coat to repaint it.

    Not bad. Some nice gains, especially in width. Weight is a bit high for my personal liking but no higher then newer rims from subaru.

    Re: 98legwag's 98 Legacy L Wagon-2/4 New Wheels

    I drove it about 2 miles last night after putting them on. Didn't get to push it hard at all, but feels more responsive on turn in. I really like the look and how they sit more flush.

    Re: 98legwag's 98 Legacy L Wagon-2/4 New Wheels

    Nice. Now you need bigger brakes to fill up that wheel. Gets some 02 03 WRX calipers, pads, brackets and front rotors. The new front size is 294mm rotor but the rear remains the same. If you want a bigger rear rotor. Get an 00-04 rear bracket from an outback and it's rotor (290mm). The WRX rear caliper and pad (for those years I've been told) will work with the bracket and rotor from the outback.

    Hows the Honda Pilot rear wiper mod work? What do you need to complete the mod? I need to fix the one on my GT!
