Kinda crazy how the road rage incident was just being talked about on one of the other forums... that incident was Feb 9th.

Well this morning... almost the SAME THING with the SAME TRUCK happend again!!

I didnt know it was the same person till they were right next to my hitting my driver mirror!

Uploading the dash cam now. This time called CHP while driving and got their license plate 100%. Last time they said they could not find a matching plate number from what was given. Well I gave them a "B" and turns out it was an "8" as one of the characters.

So loading all the unedited dash footage onto a USB and going to give it to the same officer that has the previous incident.

Here is the video from this morning.


You can start around 1:40. You can hear me using my turn signals, never cut anyone off, just driving to work. Around 2:24/5 you can hear my mirror getting pushed into my car.

A$$hat. I had a dude who was clearly not right in his head last year. My GF was driving behind me and the guy basically came into her lane in a threatening manner or he was drunk. I saw it and slowed down and swerved at me too. I ended up behind him and got his plate and called it in too.

The incident from today is weird.

I was going to say with him being on the left this time, it's on you. But it looks like he came up and tried to push you out.

Way to hold a grudge for like 2 months.

He went over the solid lane lines to try and get into the slow freeway lane before I could merge over. And ya, you can see from the rear cam how he moves over to me.

I have never done anything to this guy so Idk if its just "against" me or everyone.

So yesterday I washed the car for the first time in 7 months... well to be fair Detail Maniac washed it before they installed the clear bra, but this was MY first time.

As you can see, it was kinda dirty lol.



I also got some new emblem overlays in yesterday! Got them from https://www.etsy.com/shop/OrsiniVinylDesigns/ or their IG: https://www.instagram.com/orsinivinylanddesigns/

Before I installed those... I had an idea floating around my head for the last several days and decided to give it a shot. I wanted to wrap the trim on the back hatch. So first I needed to figure out how to get it off.

I had to remove the two interior side trims along the back glass (all clips).
Then had to remove the whole back black panel. This had 12 pop clips, and two philips head clips you have to unscrew before popping out (those were in the upper corners when standing under the open tailgate)


And this is what you're left with

The back panel is held in by 4 nuts. Im not sure what size MM socket it would be (I dont really have any smaller than 10mm and that was too large), but I used a 5/16 socket and it worked perfectly.

The four nuts to remove are circled in red. The yellow circle is a plug you need to disconnect. That powers the latch button on the tail gate.


Now that the four nuts are gone, there are still 2 plastic pop clips holding the panel in place from the outside. I gently pulled it over so I could get the panel removal tool back there and popped them out. Here you can also see the wire for the lift gate button. with it unplugged, you can pull the whole thing (with the grommet) out.



I didnt take any pics while I wrapped it.. but it was a bit tedious. I am in no way shape or form anywhere near a professional. I did manage to use one solid piece to cover the entire panel. Over the face of it, wraps under and all the way to the back. I then had to cut out and stretch the vinyl over the subaru emblem to fill the concave that dips in. It turned out pretty good IMO and Im happy with it.

I also threw on the new emblem overlay!

Here is the steering wheel cover, it goes along with the MY18 carbon fiber trim great!


The front overlay




Then a booty shot just for fun



I was thinking, if I would have had the snow camo vinyl when I had the front bumper removed and wrapped the silver winglets in CF... I prolly would have done them in the snow camo. I might still do that at some point.. just in no rush to remove the front bumper anytime soon again lol.

There might also be a couple small parts im thinking about wrapping with the same stuff. Just have to wait and see if I end up doing it or not.
