@Buzby thanks for posting... a gen 1.5 too!!! RX8s and tint were the first mods I did to my long top. It really smarts up the appearance. I did 35% front and 25% rear. Any darker and I didnt feel safe visibility wise in our somewhat grey climate in the NW.

35% will be great for defining the green house area without severely effecting viz. Nice looking wagon there @Buzby ! Now go buy those rx8s and swap em' on!

I haven't had a chance to wash the machine in a while, but we got some extended clear dry days coming up so I gave her a quick wash. I also rotated the tires and swapped on my color keyed mirror covers to the speed6 folding mirror mod I did a while back. It's nice to see her all cleaned up.

I wish. We've had such either just crappy or really cold weather here that my black wagon looks mottled medium grey with all of the salty wonder from the roads. Tonight's forecast is freezing rain, so it's not getting ant better!

Yours is looking good on the other hand. The mirrors look great.

Here's my longtop! Her name is Brinkly. She's my first 6 wagon & I love her so far! She looks way better with her alloys on, but still need the winters for another couple weeks. Lots of ideas for her coming coming up.
Oops... @Joverload , I posted in your intro thread too soon. You already got some in here. Again, she looks great! Long live the long top!

I spotted a lowered gen 1.5 black wagon in the Seattle area over the last few days. It was specifically in the Bellevue, WA east side area. Yesterday I managed to nab a good photo. I only wish I could have spoken to him to get him to join the pac nw meet up!

First real highway drive of the year in the wagon. It's amazing how much more fun to drive it is than our leased automatic Elantra. That car feels like a prison in comparison, haha.

I love it!! I get to drive mine on Tuesday because the work van is in the shop for the day. I'm excited to roll in the wagon for a day!!
