subaru running gear swap
Posted 05 November 2010 - 03:14 AM
this caught my attention.
he welded a metro body to a jeep, however, the wide frame rails and cross member on a metro look to line up very well with a brat i would like to do this very soon, i will post measurements and pics soon.. the only problem i can see is sliding the (complete) running gear as (one unit) under the metro.. once i have the running gear in place the rest should be a breeze..
comments are welcome

You will need to build some kind of subframe as its not just going to bolt up to the Metro.

it should be Farly easy to double stack scribe/fit and weld the subframes together once they are in place
it will take a lot of overhead welding/cutting and grinding to properly mate the subframes but i feel the finished product will look factory banana
i want to use stock subaru 13s to keep the gearing low with a generous lift to clear the stock fenders with (minimal trimming/flaring) . the 13" spare tire will mount nicely on the rear of the metro for that factory look..lol
