Also, I don't wish to pee in the pineapple, but could you guys keep something in
mind for me?

I'm allergic to many heavy scents (aka soaps, perfumes, lotions, etc), and certain compounds in foods.
So I just make a mild request to check for any sulfur compounds in your items
before slathering them on, or making sure your food items are sulfate/sulfite
free before offering?

Since we will be outside I should be ok, and I'm very diligent about it, but I'm
severely allergic and a trip to a hospital for an asthma attack will kinda kill the atmosphere...

Thanks for your consideration...

Canyon Rd. is a main highway, it use to be the only way to Ellensburg before I-82 existed. Its a nice scenic drive, lots of curves, pretty fun to drive

I drove it last Summer in my RX, then took Hwy 410 over the mountain and back home. I'll probably do the same route again.

Hey there,
I was kinda hopin you would chime in, I read a couple of your builds threads n such. Always good to have competent help around too :-\

I might have a third passenger. My daughter is 11 and the co-owner ;) of this BRAT but would like to give the wife a chance to come as well. She could follow but if there is a welcome/open seat in the convoy...at least I offered :grin:

Work on our 82 Brat is progressing much slower than I had anticipated. Doubt, at this rate, that we will have it licensed and ready for a road trip by end of May. Hopefully it will be rolling by WCSS 12 through as I plan on Ken driving his Brat and I'm driving my 86 Hatch.

We will join you if we can Memorial Day weekend though!

Well, if we can't will you still try to come?
Or maybe we could make you one?
I know, home made isn't the same as OEM, but could we still use it to entice
you to come over?
I'm looking into having one made for Fenix747, do you want me to get you a
price quote?

It'd be awesome to have a midwesterner come over.

if someone had a rollbar they were willing to donate to the cause for a while, i could reproduce them.i am pretty sure the original ones i have seen are 1.5" tube..that is the die set i have.

hrew tubing is relatively cheap.would cost about $75-100 a stick(20')....i would be willing to entertain this if enough folks got interested.i already have the tools to accomplish it ,,,,so.....if people wanted a different size i could pick up another set of dies.
this could also be done for the front end guards..........bull bars , etc.....

cheers, brian

Sweet.
Thank you Brian for making the offer, and thanks for tossing the bar up for
examination Rob.
Hopefully we can get these reproductions made so that we may entice our
brethren from the midwest to come over.

And also, would there be any chance of a convoy from Idaho/Spokane?
So that we may have backup, just in case one of us breaks down.
And as much as I love driving my BRAT, I would like it even more if I could
drive it with a whole bunch more people and their BRATs/Subarus.

I might be interested in a front bar, I was planning on making a pattern for the frame mounts anyway the next time I have mine off.
