Well after costly engine overhaul. She rides again....Like almost new. Best running brat I had to date besides my very first one. Heres some minor stuff I done myself. Have pushbar and jumpseats waiting to install. Installed headrests and skidplate. Painted rims back to white and put chrome trim rings on. Repainted bed of truck and subaru plate emblem on tailgate and replaced some interior pieces as well. Heres some pics and Im sorry about the glare from the sun but its sunny as hell here in FL..:lol:

Well it cost me $1000 to have it overhauld or rebuild.. New rings, seals, water pump. Parts and labor... Im no mechanic so I paid to get things done. I was told that it was a good runner so when I got it and found out it had no compression in 2 of the cylinders and wouldnt drive faster than maybe 25 mph, I wasnt expecting to put to much $ into engine work. But I got oit from Arizona so theres no rust on the body so thats a big plus....

No you dont have to be a paying member. When you post scroll down to Additional Options and use the Attach Files box. Thats the only way I know to do it.
