Oh i forgot to mention I also got my tool box home from school, so now I have real tools again (and yes my tool box is painted WRB)

This is how much I took off the top and added below the mount. It does have a shorter throw but could be a bit better

It's a bad thing you gave me that link... All of mine need them those seat belt covers would be nice too! Thanks, I may have to wait a bit to get one, but that's on the list of things to get now!
I hear ya. I've already got two from him and I've got two more coming. They are so awesome.

Brought my drive shaft in today, going to have a new one made, and soon I'm going to be having power steering lines made up. I bought another project so that's why this has been on hold. Now that that one is mostly wrapped up, time to get back to my real project!!

I am going to get my new (old) Brat back on the road and enjoy it this Summer, rebuild my 2 extra ea81 engines and sell them and any duplicate parts and put the money into a modernized drive train (not sure if 2.5 or 2.0 turbo).
You have done a heck of a job... I'm having my 12 year old rebuild one of the ea81's and he wants the Brat when he can drive... I hope he picks up 1/2 as much as you did from your Dad.
I'm adding this to my favorites page... now get back on it... I can't wait to hear this thing is running!

Work has been crazy busy and I have been saving so I can pay off most of school before I go back in the fall, but I really need to get back on this thing. I haven't heard anything about my driveshaft, was hopping it would be finished by now, sunday I plan on working on the power steering lines, and maybe some of the wiring.
Things left to do as of right now
Program ECU (not sure how to do this)
create a map (not sure how to do this...)
The rest of the wiring
Put in the new driveshaft
put my wheels back on (they are on my lego right now)
and then there's stuff like rust work in the bed and such, but that's no big deal that could even wait until the winter again.

I actually have an impreza I need to work on this weekend, but I'm hoping I can work on the brat at the same time....

Power steering and alternator are on, and I finished up my power steering lines. I also added a relay box for my megasquirt and finishing up the wiring..

All that's left
And a body shot for fun! (yes the wheels have changed, the good ones are on my lego, but I'm swapping them back this week)

You gonna pretty it up with some new paint when done?

As for paint, I did that last year, so nope. I may repaint the engine bay, and do a bedliner, but that's about it.
Ahhh.... pics don't do it justice. Get a quality bedliner, cheap ones look like crap and really don't hold up even if you haul NOTHING! Looking forward to the finished product, granted never really finished.
