I would definitely do this if the following things could be accomplished (pretty easy stuff) :
- keep it legal for road use (throw on some LED turn signals, brake lights, etc)
- Keep it highway driveable (easy)
- make a flip-down windshield for off-road use
- 4 seats!

I would totally sacrifice a EA82 car for that if I could keep driving it on the street...



what are you doin in the spring?:grin:find a car.i'll offer my skills.cheers. brian

I have a beat-to-heck Loyale that's eagerly awaiting a transformation like this... let's do it.

Only thing is...that much tube has to be spendy! :-\
And I have no welding or tube bending skills...(or equipment) - but by the looks of your recent projects, you sure as heck do! ;)

I would like to make a bunch of Subaru based buggies , basically take one Doner car a EA81 or EA82 , make a light steel framework of tubing, add all the Stock subaru components , add some fiberglass panels and or steel or aluminum panels, we could use my shop , if I had say 3-5 guys that could dedicate 1 or 2 nights a week we could design and build them in a batch , would need money up front to buy all the supplies, you provide your own Doner car, my personal favorite would be a EA82 with dual range and add a EJ22

something like these, that you guys think? anyone in NW WA that would be interested ?

I think its funny that when the "normal" 4x4 rigs have a problem doing something the solution is to add a lift and bigger tires, or more HP.

OUR solution however it to bust out the sawsall!!!
