Working on creating a thread with list of mods.  Never get time to complete with nice photos, and as always modding never stops

Had a thought. Please let me know what you think of this idea and if you have seen another one have the same treatment done. we all know the door cards on the forri have this perforated material at the top and on the arm rests. Im thinking of replacing this with a light grey alcantara suede material.
:p;) Thanks guys

That sounds pretty cool - it will certainly "lift" the perceived quality of the interior.

So forum has been down, Ventured over to foresterforum.org and basically reposted my "thead", I must say Forester owners are all great 8). Glad to be back and the forum is looking so much better  ;) Shout out to admins for a good job on that.
Onto the car: The rear plastic trim I cleaned up will not be going back on as guys say they can cause rust. Dont like that shit*RUST*. Next on the list is a set of coilovers(got a set of ISC coils coming in on the 16th for a client for a 05 xt also),Front brake upgrade(Wait to find brembo's + Sti booster), and full bracing(Ultra Racing). Will be ordering the sti kit as soon as our sourcer goes to Japan. Next two months or so. Gonna try get 3 or so jdm grills and a sti front end and rear wing.  :). Let me know if anyones keen on some parts and we can sort them out and ship them all once.

I couldn't agree more. When it comes to offroad, Heights aren't my thing. My brother and I built a caged lada (35' tires, the works) and honestly I use to shit myself when we went up hills and stuff. I prefer tar roads. How does the forester venture on rough terrain? silly question

Very good on sand/mud/dirt roads and can do reasonable inclines but any more than that and you'll get stuck.
Drove all over the farm this past weekend and it was brilliant.

I live on a farm and my driveway can get naughty, this never stopped me running a low mk1. I can imagine they would be awesome on dirt roads and sand. Alot of guys say they eat snow for breakfast too (given you use the correct tires I suspect). Well im open to all forms of forester fun so thanks for the info guys. pic of previous fun bucket
