Default Forester SAR (cont): Switch Panel / Audio / Radio Nest

Nice switch dash. I mite have to rig something up similar for my Foz.
Where is your winch? Is it attached to the front of your Subie?

Nice job. I also would like to see what winch you have, and where it's mounted.

Again, great work!

+2 Really want to see what you did there. Is it mounted your your custom made bumper/bullbar/nudge bar?
