What have you done to your Subaru today ?

Recommended Posts

Worst case scenario cut it flush and weld a thread on, maybe.

I hope it's an easy fix.

Yup should be fine with a tap run down it - plan B was to drill it out then weld in a stud as you suggested 👍

Just needs a final wash and it's ready to go back on.

Whilst the suspension is out I will be repainting the drive shaft, steering rack, and wheel arch.

I'm waiting on my caliper rebuild kits, and they will be re-done also.

You can see it's all been fixed underneath before. So was obviously rubbing like a mo fo at some time.  Before my days though. Aahhh the Joy's of expensive cars 

Looks brand new from the front

Yes - you have my empathy - sometimes on the surface all can look well and then you do a bit of digging - but your motor is the right hands!

It looks irs tie wrapped together  with a load of body filler slapped on and painted.

That looks like a lot of work.

Would you get away with trimming the back edge(removing the worst of the damage) and fiberglass reinforcement over the back of the crack(Giggerdy)?

Loud pipes save lives for sure !!!

 

Yea I'll probably shorten how far back it goes and give it a MASSIVE RUB DOWN. Fiberglass a lot . Then a bit more to be safe. Then a bit more fiberglass. Might get metal piping to run along front depending on the angle. Then a little filler. Rub down again and paint. 🙄 I feel some late nights coming up

I hope the install of the body kit was better than the repair attempt, or you could be opening a can of worms.

Or are you going to attempt it still attached?

Yea the kit looks great on the top and over the fittings and that.  Its just the underneath.  Looks hellish

Clutch removed today - looks like a competition clutch lightweight flywheel with an ACT sprung 4 pad disc, one of the rivets is loose in the pad - should I be concerned??

Only ever had 1 car with a paddle clutch, I didn't like the feel for a road car and  binned it . So can't say if the rivets being loose is a issue tbh jay 🤔
