The problems of getting trim? ... using the internet :P ...

 

Yes, I know... I have obtained parts for my Subaru online since more than a decade ago, mainly here, with the Kind Help of the nice forum members, as you can see ~► Here.

 

However, it does not make much sense to import trims that says "Loyale" from overseas, just to say that the car came like that from factory to europe, especially considering that if he needed new trims, they were available there locally.  However, anything could be possible.

 

Kind Regards.

Have you seen that Option Before?

 

Must be a Dealer Optional Package, isn't it?

 

Kind Regards.

I saw that & thought it was a convertible :P

But then wondered about the B pillars.

Seems a waste & looks ugly IMHO, but each to his own. We can't all have the same car ;)

 

One day, I still want to make a Brat/Brumby from a "Loyale" wagon using the doors & side panels from a coupe, then top half of the wagon tailgate for the back window, with the bottom half for the tailgate.

The tray would be tiny doing it this way though...

And getting the doors/side panels down under would be ridiculously expensive :(

About the Third Gen Leone / EA82 \ Loyale's Sealed HeadLamps, seems like the USDM never got the Later ones, that instead of the crappy 9004 Bulb on Great Quality Glass Front with Metal Frame Lamp, came with the Better H4 Bulb, on Crappy Plastic Front with Plastic Frame Lamp. The AUDM and the LADM got them. See:

This is an Example of them, mounted in a Subie:

Yes, Aus got these lights too.

Doesn't make them any better at giving out light :(

We've often put in relays close to the lights & give them a better power feed rather than all the way from the dashboard.

Yes... the H4 Bulb is Better than the 9004, but the Plastic Housing is worser than the Glass one. In my Case, I used Dual Beam "Natural Colour" (5000K) H.I.D.'s on the Glass Headlamps of my "BumbleBeast"

 

illumination Problem = Solved.  B) 

 

Kind Regards.

ok, now I'm confused by what you mean about "plastic housing" vs "glass housing"

 

All of our lights have a glass lens on the front with a chrome plastic reflector.

Well, Early EA82's that came to the LADM are like the USDM, they came with full Metal + Glass, not a single bit of Plastic on the Headlamps, except the Ring that holds the 9004 bulb in place, which is easily removable.

 

So, since they're Metal + Glass and No Plastic, people usually place them in Ovens, to heat for some minutes, to melt the glue that holds the glass lens to the metallic base together, in order to separate the Glass from the Metallic Base, to gain access to the HeadLamp's interior.

 

Why? ... to add Led Stripes, cover with aluminium Foil the Rusted Backing reflectors, insert H.I.D. Projectors... etc... see this threads in Example:
