    I will ditch those hubcaps when I get some different wheels. This ain't no Mad Max BRAT! Im okay impersonating a loyal for the time being.

Yeah, as i travel through the state I find old gen subies on occasion. Most recently I ran into a guy who has a 85 gl turbo, he was asking 800 for it. Took it for a test run and white smoke billowed at 55, Didn't have the money to make to many repairs and was looking for an upgrade to my 83 gl, not a downgrade. He did though have 3 extra stocks wheels and a pug wheel to boot. I ended up picking up an extra wheel and some mud flaps. Well if you ever have a subie get together give me a shout! I'd be glad to do some trailing.

Dude, I just needed to say that the route you took for the wheels on your BRAT looks super slick. I think I am going tone doing the same thing for The Desert Fox once I get back to work on it.

Looks like it should work. Like I said, I'm free Sunday if you're available. I could make the trip over to do the swap. Any other ea82 odds or ends you need? I got rid of a lot, but might still have some bits and peices. Let me know what works. I'll need your address again so I can find my way. Thanks again Tom

As long as it's not from a 3-door coupe, it will work, according to the Board.

I have you covered on a good windshield. Would you be interested in a straight up trade? I was saving it in case one of my Loyales needed one, but no longer have a loyale. I believe it came from an `86 sedan.

If you could snag me a good hood and/or windshield for the '88 Wagon we'd be good. No idea on worth of trans, nor do I have an idea of what a hood or windshield goes for. Don't have anything in yards near me.

Hey tom, I'm not sure what you would want for that trans. Would $50 be a fair offer? I really don't know what one would be worth. I could swing over on sunday and pick it up. Let me know what you think its worth if my offer is too low.

Got the trans out of the '82 BRAT sitting here. Not going to put it back in.

Hey Tom! I hope your wagon is still coming along nicely. Mine is getting there. I was wondering if you might happen to have an extra 4 speed dual range trans you might be looking to get rid of. Mine is starting to make a bit of noise and has developed a pretty significant leak. Thanks again Tom.

Hey boss, I have a quick question regarding your BRAT 5 lug swap. I read through your thread but maybe I missed it. What axles did you end up using? I saw how you added the ea82 mounts and I assume you used that style control arm? I'm picking up `98 Leg GT front knuckles, brakes, and struts. I'm still trying to find out what to do with the axles. As for now I'm going to keep the stock ea81 and single range 4 speed 4x4 trans.

I don't have anymore images of the desert fox decals installed on a Subaru. They are super cool and you'll be the envy of all your friends. Order a set and you will not be disappointed. thanks, earl 971-255-2970

Hey Hey Pooparu. I noticed the Desert Fox decals in your ebay store. I'm wondering if you have any better pictures of those on a car. I am considering them for my `84 DL but would like a better idea of how they look. Thanks -MM

Good to hear you're back. Sorry but no parts for your Wagon here, (atleast none for the rear), as I've only had EA81's in the BRAT flavor. May have other items here that would fit yours. Post in the Wanted Forum for the tails, and check the Parts for sale Forum. Thinking I've seen someone parting a Wagon, but not sure right at the moment. Haven't done to much for the Wagon lately. But I did pick up another '92 Wagon for parts. Body is shot, but it has a "like new" interior, and lot's of other usable parts. It's close to being on the road. Need to get the rims cleaned up, tires mounted, few other odds-n-ends.
