So I have two questions.

1. How did you get the mustache bushings out of the mustache?
2. Where are you in Hamilton? I am ironically in Burlington right now and odd as it sounds I would love to see this?


1. I pressed them out in a press that I have at my house, did all my bushings new oem.

2. Sent you a pm



Simply magnificent Nico! Thanks for showing us just what can be done with these great old cars!

:burnout: Nico, you win. You have the coolest Subaru period.

cool, I have been thinking about that too. I will put up some pics after I get it.

is that wheel a 350mm?

the hub should be here in about 2 weeks! I am still looking for that wheel that I have... haven't used it for 10+ years and I have moved 5 times... ugh!

nice progress btw!

i dont really know what size the wheel is sorry. but i did figure out how to make the horn work perfect.

the inner ring is the horn ring so what i did was make like a big coil spring with some not to thick steel wire. ill have to show you hard for me to explain. wire is all most like coat hanger wind it up like a spring and it works perfect.





AWIC pipes and other bits which is moving along nice and smooth. couple back order stuff which is killing me ! summer is all most done.

Didn't get back to you Nico, it was a busy Friday. But I am headed back to Hamilton/Burlington in middle August so possibly then I could bug ya to see it.

On your mustache bushings were they hard to get out? I got the new bushings but haven't looked at the mustache yet. I am betting a 32 year old Brat will have rusted bushings. Any tips on that - sorry to take away from your thread with my questions.

its ok no worries when you come back up let me know when your hear and will meet up.


my bushings where very simple and used and abused thats for sure. maybe sand blast them first then try to press them out ! if you cant do it bring it up and ill pop them out and new in for you no worries.

here we have the shifter mount, its a mix of 1986 sway bar bushing rubber and good old fashioned father steal bending and welding. ! lol its so simple but yet feels so right when shifting.





then we had to fix the rear sway bar mount points, thanks to the great Canadian salt we use for our roads, it destroyed the tabs to hold my mounts.



way it should look with a tab, but not a hole in the middle !



so once again my father came up with these, we made these tabs which is nice and thick to last 50years. once you weld them over paint and done.



oem 86 XT6 20MM sway bar




1986 GL-10 Turbo Filter looks way better made then the new style.




so we are pretty much done under the hood, add battery, couple water lines for cooler and done.
 
 
 
 
that thing beside the brake master need to be in the car for my heater  control's to work vac system. so i used a new style fuel filter holder  and bolted it up and it works perfect nice and clean.
 
 
 
and while i was board i cut out the spare cap i have for the Extra S  gear oil i had, and stuck it on the top of the cap for the water cooler.
 
 
 
 
as of now we are pretty much ready to start it up but !! tomorrow my  drive shaft shop shaft will be in. then im just waiting on my water  coolers for my intercoolers.

man o man is this thing so light weight. so they told me its 4" inch shorter then a STi shaft. which means even more less weight & 4" inch shorter wheel base.

Do you plan on adding any extra chassis bracing? How do you feel the stock chassis will hold up to that kind of power?
