Welcome to the site. Looks like you're already doing a decent job with the car, nice job. Do you have any specific areas of interest as far as mods go?

Thank you.
I do have a very hazy plan to clean up the aerodynamics as much as possible without changing the car's appearance too much. 1st order of business is a belly pan. On another model of Forester (more expensive) a full underhood belly pan is fitted to the car. I may buy it and put it on my car but first I will try to fab one up and see what that does. Looks to be fairly simple as the mounting holes are already in place. Maybe a lower grill block-off if I can do one cleanly. Later, after my tires wear out I'll go with narrower tires. May delete the passenger-side rear view mirror (I run it folded in right now but not sure that buys anything). That's about it.
