roll bar looks good! I wish I could figure out a way to make one fit under the high top camper, so people could sit in the jump seats without banging their heads, but as it is, the high topper is too low for that. I was thinking about making a removable mount for a roll bar, so I could mount it when I don't have the topper on.

Wow, that sure looks like a labor of love. There ought to be a Lazarus award or medal of honor for those who save Subarus from cancerous death.

Looks like the kinda work I need to do to my brat to get it back in shape. Gives me more hope for the fact that the metal repairs CAN actually be done :clap:

I put an EA81 in the tractor when I Get a legacy engine to put in the Brat. :headbang:

I couldn't have done it without my dad, he taught me how to do bodywork and he helped me out with it. More of a two man job to get it done, still expect to have it ready for carlisle.

for now I will only get the Targa for it, the horizon stripe is too expensive.

I put a few more pics up.

In case you don't already know, Ed Dahl sells the stripe kits in targa and full for genII. You can reach him at dahled@aol.com

I had him make me a targa set in straight black and it is fantastic!

I was gonna get both from ed, but $200 is too much because I'll am going to pay to have them put on, I don't think I can get them on right, probabaly screw it up. and there is also the cost of paint to consider, we are painting it ourselves though.

so I will just get the targa for now

has anybody else put these decals on themselves? how hard is it?
because If it is something my dad and I can handle, I would get both

what replacment panels? I just bent some galvanized metal to fit the holes, it would be easier to make your own though, sorry but I am not going to do panels for people.

you are also on the other side of the country, that could also be a problem
