Man from Detail Maniac sent me a couple teasers yesterday on the clear bra. Looks amazing so far! The entire panels are getting covered and the end of the film is getting wrapped over the edges of the panels so there are no visible seam lines. As always, HIGHLY suggest Detail Maniac if you're in the surrounding Sacramento area!

The 13-17 are an easy 2" lift.

Of course the 18 are on the new global platform and ADF didnt want to changes the geometry too much with a full 2", hence just 1.5. BUT since the fender wells are larger, i was able to get a larger tire as well, so more high

Ok.. a lot of updates coming as I did a lot of smaller things on the car this weekend..

Including getting the car back from Detail Maniac after they installed clear bar on the whole front clip, and then some

Man and his team doing what they do!



all along the side of the doors

crappy finger reference as to how high up the film goes along the doors lol


all the way up the pillars and first sections of the roof


Amazing work from them, as always! I always recommend people to check out the shop if they're in the Sacramento area!

I ordered a bunch of LED replacements from Diodedynamics for the interior.
I swapped out the map lights, dome light, cargo light, and license plate lights... HUGE difference.







EDIT:

For the license plate lights, I got the "Pure White 5k" and "HP5 92 lumens"
https://www.diodedynamics.com/licens...trek-pair.html


They dont list these for the 2018, but they are the same as the 2017..
The map lights and dome lights are both the same thing
"Cool white" in SMF6 (94 lumens)
https://www.diodedynamics.com/map-li...trek-pair.html


Also not listed for under the 2018, but again the same, is the rear cargo light.
"Cool white" in SMD12 Board (118 lumens)

Installed the Lamin-x yellow fog covers, looks so much better now in my opinion!


Installed my radar detector mount, hard wiring will be coming up soon.


Got a couple of these cigarette plug to dual USB things. I installed one in the cubby under the HVAC controls, and the other in the center console armrest. Ive got future plans in my head for the cubby area. So my thought was to get some longer cables (1 iPhone and 1 micro USB) and plug them into that outlet and run them into the glovebox. So if a passenger ever needs to charge their phone, either cable is ready to go there.

What were the license plate lights like? The light output on those looks really good.

I keep ending up with these stupid 5 smd things and they keep breaking. They really suck.

My fiance bought a new Kia Sorento earlier this year and I bought a Yakima loadwarrior basket. I knew I was going to be getting a Crosstrek at some point, so I wanted to be able to use the basket on either vehicle. I mounted and wired a LED bar to the front of the basket with weatherpack connectors so I could plug it into both cars. Here is the full write up on how I got it set on her car: LED light bar with cargo basket - Kia Forum Ill be doing something very similar for the Crosstrek, but next level lol.

So I adjusted the crossbars on the roof and got the basket mounted. So now there is transferable lighting, storage, and ski/snowboard attachments for either SUV

These are what I bought. The basic set is like $8, but I upped the output to the "Pure White 5k" and "HP5 92 lumens" so it was $20 for the pair.

Also on Saturday... my awaited lift kit from Anderson Design Fab showed up!!


It looks beefy and I cant wait to get it on! Ill be working with a local YouTuber and we'll be doing a installation video of the kit Ill post a link once its uploaded later on


Then for giggles I decided to test fit one of the wheels even before the lift kit got installed. Im pretty sure I could rock them as is. MIGHT have slight rubbing at full lock, but I decided to wait since the lift is going on real soon.


little bit of poke hehe

I would have put some tint on the plastic.






I also think that I had this idea before Chicken did. 🐸☕️
