  1. She’s finally seen the light of day. Washed and polished ready for a day out.
  2. And that’s how she sits now. Labour of love.
  3. Replaced the front wheel bearings along with new ball joints, trackrod ends, brake backing plates, hub carriers and ABS rings that cost a bomb!
  4. Gearbox out and replaced all the seals and oil plates. It got a new clutch while the box was out too.
  5. Front and back bumpers taken off and new bumper brackets fitted because they were like Swiss cheese, all light brackets replaced and new clips.
  6. No worries, I’ll put on what photos I have. Unfortunately I lost the ones of it looking green a while back. I’ve also done a step by step guide on sorting the dreaded classic scratches on the front windows. I’ll put the photos up later tonight.
  7. It had a scrape down the passenger door and he sprayed it after 6 years and sold it to me. Am working my way slowly through the rust... it’s done 83k and completely standard with original bits sorced from Subaru to replace the rusty ones. Costs a fortune but at least I know it’s being kept original. 👍👍
  8. Mine was 10 miles away and covered in green crud and sap of a tree outside a guys spray booth. It was the tree sap that saved the paintwork. Everything else is getting sorted little by little.
  9. Welcome. They are rare as hens teeth to find an unmolested example, low mileage for reasonable money. 👍
  10. The hubs are back with new wheel bearings pressed in so spent the afternoon putting it all back together with all new parts.
  11. This is getting expensive... 2 new ABS rings needed now as they both split while separating the bearings. 😩😖😩😖😩😖
  12. Pulled the front knuckle assembly out ready for new wheel bearings and hubs, ABS bolts snapped both sides and a blackend finger but their out! So might as well do the ball joints, trackrod ends, drop links and new brake backing plates as well. Fortunes spent but still smiling.

    Or there’s that one if it’s the next model up.

    Hi again. There’s one on eBay for sale now. Have you a photo of which wheel you want?
  15. Message me mate and I’ll sort him. He’ll do the job at my place as I have a garage if it’s raining.
