Subaru legacy 3.0 2005 by grassfed in cars

[–]EsterVacero 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I recently made the decision to switch from my rusty 2005 Subaru Legacy 3.0 to a wrecked 2014 Toyota Camry that I bought at a car auction for around $3,500. There were a few reasons why I made this choice. Firstly, as my Legacy was approaching its 16th year, I knew it would soon need costly repairs and maintenance. I decided that it would be more cost-effective in the long run to switch to a newer car that would have fewer issues. Secondly, I wanted a car that was more fuel-efficient. My Legacy had a 3.0-liter engine, which was great for power but not so great for gas mileage. The Toyota Camry, on the other hand, has a smaller 2.5-liter engine and is known for its fuel efficiency. Lastly, I was looking for a change and I found a great deal at the car auction. I found the link https://abetter.bid/en/car-finder/type-automobiles which helped me find this deal. I was able to get a newer car at a fraction of the cost of buying one new.

Actually I'm really happy with my decision to switch to the Toyota Camry. It's been a great car so far and I'm confident that it will serve me well for many years to come 👍

tl;dr: the trucks run out of juice in 4 hours instead of working a 12 hour shift, when doing plow duty. Plus they're expensive and the charging infrastructure needs more inve$tment.

Just a few tidbits of major FUBAR glass jobs of the planet = (1) most often fuckup is at glass processor (the factory that takes giant stock sheets and converts those into glazing lites to be installed) and they can do that several ways. (2) Then major fuck #2 is architect who draws something fancy but fuck Engineer (people like me) and Glazier have no damn idea how to pull it off. (3) #3 then is glazier who installs and not much brighter than a smart monkey. Axiom = "glazing is a very angry trade" and I so wish I had never fallen into it for now for me at 44 years of it actually just past 20 years there's no turning back.

Indeed funny. 100% every front windscreen of the modern 1st world is laminated annealed meaning 2 lites of almost-always bent/curved (it's stronger and more aerodynamic) and most always each layer just 3mm thick so a bit less than 1/8th ". Annealed is not strengthened in any way by laminating it it simple means upon break - it tends to stay in place unless catastrophically impacted. "Crack propagation" is quite a thing as annealed glass has very consistent lattice-work of micro-strands so upon initial crack it wants to crack further and not a damn thing can be done to stop that. Sometimes a "shell or ball-peen" impact can be fixed via an autoglass shop with vacuum applied resin and that actually does work. But not on cracks as they tend to "run" and not stop.

It's called thermal shock and glass does not like that. Can also happen when a portion of glass is in direct solar light and the balance of glass shaded. That's called a heat break.

Thanks. I have finally have my big garage and have put together a decent tool collection. I am also in a place financially where I can outsource parts of the job that I probably don't have enough practice with, like the body work. I have had too much on my plate at work this year, so as things settle down, I will hopefully start back on this project.

Got this far last Sunday evening. It's on hold for another week while I have other stuff to do. I had to unbolt (see: shear off bolts) downstream exhaust to slide the catalytic converter back enough to reach the last two exhaust manifold bolts. Now that it's out, I am thinking about trying to install the exhaust manifolds on the heads and then put the heads on the block. The cat-to-manifold nuts/bolts are easy to get to.

Outside of getting an alignment there and something else I can't remember, we ended up doing everything at home.

Yeah, with the price of used cars right now, I find repair can be cheaper than getting something newer. It hasn't always been that way, though. Plus, you don't always know what the newer car has been through or if the previous owner did the routine maintenance.

I got the driver's side head off the block without having to take the catalytic converter out. It looks like coolant was blowing out the two end exhaust ports. I'll check the head for square and decide where to go from there. It also looks like the previous owner knew it was leaking and used some sealer that has gummed up some of the coolant holes.

So the timing assembly was a breeze. I've found that I have to take the exhaust manifolds off to get to the heads. To get the exhaust manifolds off, I have to take off the catalytic converters. The nuts and bolts on the rear flange of the cats are rusted solid. I'll be buying parts once I have a list of what I break or have to cut apart.

I have everything out of the way now. Just need a few hours set aside to get the heads loose from the block and exhaust manifold. I always feel good starting and finishing a car repair project. It's the middle parts that I tend to get "distracted" during. I'm at the point in my life where I don't have to do my own car repair, but I need to know I still can. Starters can be a PITA. I had a 1976 Mustang II that needed the engine lifted off the motor mounts to change the starter.

I now have lower intake off, but the dreaded timing assembly needs to come off before I can even start on the head removal. I am waiting back to hear from a friend of my sister who may come out and finish what I start for cheap. It wasn't worth me taking it to a shop because of the cost/return ratio. I replaced the timing and water pump while stranded in a parking lot several years ago in about 4 hours. The problem now is that I'm in my garage behind the house and I get distracted easily.

I stripped everything and sandblasted years ago and then life got in the way. I sprayed a coat of epoxy enamel and it's held up well. There is minor rust in both rear wheel wells and I'll have to practice my welding before i tackle that. I welded a new front passenger floor pan when I first got it, but it's not the cleanest job, so I may redo that. I'm going to replace the entire braking system. I had painted the engine bay and dropped a fresh donor engine in, but I'm going to pull it back out while I finish the body work and front end.

Is that close to the original exterior design.

It's funny that auto design originally had so many complex contours. Curves like that were close to non-existent on most American vehicles during the 60's-90's.

Some European mfgs such as VW did.

Pretty cool.

Meh, at least gas prices are down, a topic that's more interesting.

FYI It was in the background of one of the Star Trek movies, among others.

That's awsome!

Granted, it's a one-seater, but still. It looks like they borrowed a bunch of the Aptera ideas and pulled back by half. Maybe in the future, after getting more established, they'll lean into the Aptera design more.

These guys are still at it with a light 3 wheeled car. Not as nice looking as Aptera tho. https://www.eliomotors.com

It was my consumerist dream until they broke my heart by closing shop. Now I dream of owning nothing but a bunch of servers to be nodes on a bunch of decentralized networks. Everything else is bonus self-indulgent fluff. If I played the lottery and won, my life wouldn't change too much. I'd move to a better place and eat better food, and hire folks to help make my projects, and I might consider going back to Burning Man eventually, but otherwise not much would change for me. My new Earthship commune compound wouldn't make the same mistakes the Branch Davidians made.

That Aptera is something else! That'd certainly turn heads

Nah the wording difference in the title for the compact version is fine, no worries. Great work!

No. I demand that everything is done by Unix Time 1557263450!!!!1! This is unacceptable!

I'm sad the Aptera prototype never made it into production. Buckminster Fuller would have loved it.

So I'd have to settle for any Tesla by practical default. Though apparently batteries are not as environment friendly as implied due to extractions and manufacturing.

Not very practical, but I just like the uniqueness of it, the Prowler.

I guess that's why I like art cars, but my favourites are mutant vehicles

More variants in these tables: https://infogalactic.com/info/SaidIt_Debate_Pyramid_gallery

Side by side I just noticed. On the simpler one I forgot to change the name to "The Pyramid Of Debate", and the pink is a skootch darker.

Does it matter? I can easily tweak as you like.

There's also /s/Automotive

And there's also 2 new versions of the Pyramid of Debate.

The detailed version.

The simple version.

A /s/Vehicles might be good for someone to create. That could include airplanes, boats, trains, space ships, hyperloops, tanks, blimps, whatever...
