Bought a Brat in '78 hated giving it up. bought apretty nice '86 recently but would like to add some memorabilia. Anyone know where I should start my search for items? Primarily I want a roll bar and would love to get hold of the heavy bumper I had it was a Subaru part. I havent been having much luck with part locator sites. Hoping this could be the true way!

Welcome to the site! Can a newbie welcome another newbie? :-p

Not sure what your old bumper looked like, but I'm definitely curious. If you can't find any aftermarket parts, it might be easiest to have something custom fabricated. Should be relatively easy and cheap if you can source some scrap material, and find someone who's handy with a torch and welder. And if you're not too picky about the way it looks. I'd be happy with a nice thick pipe. I've wanted something like that to replace my bumpers for a while now.

I want a brat now! I can just barely see the holes in the body behind the bumper, but they look different from my wagon, so maybe my idea won't work after all. Crikey!
