Have your cargo nets popped out yet? Mine did within the first week. I've already modified the hook piece (part that connects to the rear bumper) with the extra hooks from when I installed the nets in my wife's Forester. The screw has a nut backing so you know it's not going to pull out.

My trunk cargo nets haven't popped off and I have stuff in them and sandwiched behind them and the trunk wall.

Nope mine have been fine.

I usually keep a half quart of oil behind one just in case. In the past I've also put a heavy box of 150 shotgun shells behind it before when I've gone target shooting and it never popped off.

Well this is good to hear about these cargo nets. I just order a set from Subarupartsonline.com and they should get here soon. I plan on using them a lot!

Nice write up on your car! A great way to keep track of stuff that you've done and/or want to do. I did one for my car in the photo forum. Basically a photo essay of my car's mods starting with an unmolested image a couple days after I got it up to a recent image with the new Swift Sport springs installed.

Nice write up of your car so far.

Interested in any feedback you have on these mods:
Tanabe Front Strut Tower Brace - TTB156F
Tanabe Undercar Brace - TUB156F
GT Spec Rear Strut Tower Brace - GTS-SUS-1425

Also, FYI, my cargo nets haven't came out and I have them stuffed pretty full, including a quart of oil :lol:

Blizzard, our cars are at least going to look very similar pretty soon. I too have the Rally Armor mud flaps, on order is a accessport, RSB, and a fewother goodies..going to have a local guy fab up a custom exhaust with MR cans. My roof rack is on order as well. Need to carry my snowboard in the winter and kayaks and bikes in the summer. Were you the one with a hitch as well? Before next spring I have to order and install that as well

Oh cool. Yup I have the Reese Hidden Hitch that isn't well... hidden :lol:

I use it to tow my 4.5ft x 10 ft aluminum trailer for my snowmobile.

Not a very good picture at all but you get the idea.

Do you scrape at all with the hitch? I was thinking about getting it, but from what I read on here, most people scrape going in/out of their driveways.

Nope I've never scraped with it. The car is also at stock ride height right now though.

Are there any previous threads on that HKS intake inlet?
...scratching my head trying to figure out what you did with it.

It replaces the airbox silencer. Looks like this.
