The car came with the Subaru all-weather mats, and I was pretty disappointed in them. I had Subaru mats in my wrx and they were fantastic, these not so much.

So I ordered up the Weathertech liners for front/rear. They are the exact same as the 2017 Impreza. They came in yesterday and I swapped em out, so much better!

Those mats are looking too clean. When you have a chance to get them and your tires dirty, hit me up!

Got the main piece of the next project in the mail on Saturday

Ive gotten tired of running individual switches into the car every time I add an another accessory. It adds up to being a lot of wire being ran and individual switches all over the cabin, especially after running out of the blank slots on the drivers side dash.

I got this S-Tech system from Tech Team Offroad located in Colorado. Ill be making a bracket to mount the 6 switches below the HVAC controls. I might make another bracket for under the hood to mount the power block as well (unless I can get lucky and it will mount to two existing bolts, but I doubt it lol).

So here is the system, i just wired up 3 of the 6 toggle switches to get a feel of it.


Here are the switches I got. Dual LED so they will be partially illuminated while off and fully when switched on. All of them are red colored to match the Speedo/Tach. I got 4 of them labeled for the future plans, and 2 blanks as im not sure what i would want to fill them with yet

Been working on the switch panel for an hour here and there after work. Made a template out of cardboard and then cut it out of some 23 gauge plate steel. Slowly filed it down till it was a nice tight fit that Im happy with. Yesterday I stenciled the individual switches onto the panel.

Might be able to do a little more tonight, but after that, I probably wont get to mess with it till Sunday. Also working on a template for a under-hood bracket to hold the power distribution box.

Here's where Im at currently.

Got some updates coming from the weekend.

Dropped the car off Saturday morning to get the front windows and windshield tinted. Did 35% on the front two and 45% on the windshield. Was going to have a 5% sun strip across the top, but he wanted the windshield to completely dry first, so ill get that taken care of in the next week or so.
