wow. Nice deal, even with 4 different wheels/tires. You know that front bar is worth near 200 alone. It looks mint to me.

the plan
Posted Image

a slight lift of about 2 inches bigger more agressive tires but not so big that i have to cut the body some extra lighting on the front and rear

im going for a rally kind of look something that looks like it can go anywhere but not look like a rock crawler

FYI, wheels on these old Subarus have a odd bolt pattern, 4x140. The only cars with wheels of this pattern were the old Subaru's and a few old Peugeot's.

as tempting as that is i want whatever wheel i put under it to fit in the wheel wells this wagon is to clean to cut it up a mild lift and some 14 inch datsun wheels will probibly do the trick with some meaty snow tires give it the rally going look i want

well today after work my dad and i bled the brakes and i installed a tach now that i got to drive the car faster then 5 mph the speedo doesnt read past 20 and the clutch slips baaaaad but other then that its a solid car
Posted Image

a few questions one why would the speedo only read up to a certan point? number 2 the gas gauge doesnt work i put 1 and a half gallons in it todat and it didnt even budge on a tank that is only 11 gallons it should register something right? my temp gauge kinda works i know there is some corrosion in the connecter to the sensor but are they any other causes that could be causing me to have these instrumentation issues?
