Colby, here's another picture, got to get on one of these free photo sharing sites so I can upload more than one picture at once...
Flickr works well, but you can also upload more than one attachment by clicking "more attachments"

If ones bad the other three probably are not far from the same fate. If the price is right and new struts are not too expensive then go for it, or try to find somewhere to rebuild them.

Not much to update here, took the car out to Kenora a few days prior to Driven, had a blast and hit a few hundred bugs. Pics incoming from that.

I lit up the subwoofer with some LED's for some added pop, I think it turned out really cool!

Took home an award for Best in Class Forester, kind of a gimmicky award but I'll take it!

Other Driven prep things, actually maxed my coils short of removing collars. Kinda disappointed, thought they'd be lower...

After a couple years I finally got around to properly installing my bass knob. I actually find its not as easy to use where it is now because I have to reach for it, but its not bad, and look 10x better than having it stuck to the side of my console!

Quick bug removal and wax job and she was ready for Driven.

Finally got around to lighting up the amplifier and covering it with plexy. I will be redoing the lights though because I'm not satisfied with how they turned out, it will either be simply relocating them or I might try to do something layered with some edge lit plexy.

Anyway, heres some pics of the progress.

Wondering if anyone got a picture of the trunk set up while at driven? I didnt take the plexi cover off until I got to Driven.

Well I managed t replace the coolant temp sensor, and have been driving the car a few times a week.
I'm fairly confident that the issue has been solved.

I've gone on a couple long drives 1 hour - 2 hours, with a couple 10-15 minute breaks in between. This is usually when the car would have the most trouble, when it has had a chance to cool down a bit, but was still warm. And so far I haven't had any issues.

There was one instance right after changing it where the car had a bit of a rough idle upon starting, however I didn't need to use any throttle to get it to run, but a bit of throttle smoothed out the idle. This has been the only issue that's come up, and it was only once.

I'm not 100% convinced yet, that it's completely solved as i don't want to get my hopes up, but it seems to have solved the issue.
Woo, fingers crossed you got it nailed!

Anyone else feel disappointed at the cost vs actual show quality cars at Driven?

I don't know how 70% of the people thought their cars were show quality. So much bad paint and "paint it black and put it back" "builds". Felt like a meet not a show.

There were a small handful of really well done cars and a few nice dealer cars but for a $20 ticket to a car show it was pretty pathetic.
I agree with this to a point, the Tesla with a different colored front bumper for example, but in the big scheme of things, the show was a big improvement over last year in my opinion and I enjoyed myself.
Lets keep this thread on topic though, there are supposed to be pics in here.
