Quiet Riot. My 87 GL-10

And from a local yard I'm getting a front caliper and parking cable,non A/C alt bracket setup, rear diff and snout bushing, and some blue front seats.
should have those in a day or so, then its into the shop for a bunch of work, she will never be the same.

Not quite perfect, but i think that has to do with the age of the rest of the paint.

the hood is going to stay black, but I am going to re paint it. I didn't have enough to paint the hood. I have a can left for the bumper and some touch up around the car.

I got my front seats put in, so much better than the WRX seats, my head doesn't touch the headliner anymore!

I've definitely been watching your thread, I've got the same wagon, just base model. I'm a few big steps behind you, but am going to do pretty much everything you have done to yours, as well as a few personal touches of course.
Posted 29 January 2013 - 02:59 AM
I hope you can get your wagon up to speed, they are more than fun with a lift!

Hey how easy was that lift to install? ive got an 88 gl 10 that I have wanted to lift for a while, on the SJR lifts website it says that I need to extend my steering column? did you have to do anything like that?
Posted 26 February 2013 - 12:02 AM
I got the BOSS lift from thebeastidrive its only $120 and is very well made.
with the sjr kit you have to drop the cross member an inch to help with the C/V angles with the boss kit there is no cross member drop.
same 2" lift just one is a little harder on your axles. On my car i have had no issues with axles because the turbos sit a little lower then the N/A cars.
install is easy, they are just spacers that go on top of the factory struts. can be done in a few hrs. the front is kinda difficult getting the struts back into the knuckles with the spacers but still very doable.

What is the longevity of the Turbos on those?
I don't know much about that part of them.
I've always be pretty leery of Turbos.

I finally got the clutch replaced, now all I have left to do is minor stuff I can do in my garage.
took me a grand total of 5 hrs over 2 days. all I did was unbolt the engine from the trans, unbolt the engine mounts, pulled the radiator and slid the motor forward enough to replace the clutch. the only things I had to unhook from the motor was the air intake, and the heater core lines.
Thank you Miles Fox for the pressure plate bolts through the starter hole trick. I couldn't get a clutch alignment tool in there. lol
Man are there a lot of leaks though. valve covers, oil pump, oil pan, turbo return lines, even the hill holder is leaking.
just that much more to do. oh well, I'll pull the motor and do a reseal on it in a few months.
I didn't take any pictures, because I was working in the cold and snow, sorry.

Finally got around to replacing my radius rod bushings. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. its not so squirrelly in FWD when I floor it and the front end just feels so much tighter.
Last thing I need to do is install that Leece Neville 140 amp semi alternator. But I think that can wait. for now i need to put all my hard work to use and get a job
Posted 08 May 2013 - 06:51 PM
well, all the hard launches and abuse finally caught up with me... the trans went ka-put about a month ago. It was weird, I drove through puddle, and when I got to the other side, I pulled it out of gear and now the shifter is locked up. wont go into any gears, luckily I have another car to drive..just another thing I need to fix, not surprising though that trans had close to 400k on it.

i read this whole entire thread before i went to bed last night. made me dream about my old 1988 GL-10. Wish i still had her. Hope to see you having your car up and going again.

FINALLY!!!!! I got the trans replaced, its soooo good to drive my car again.
And heres the victim.
I also made a video which will be uploaded soon

made some more progress on the car today.
I've been wondering why my MPG's were not what they used to be... and I figured that out this morning. while checking an amplifier to see if it worked i noticed the fuel filter leaking like a siv... threw a new all metal one on and all is good now.
and while I was in there I replaced the battery, alternator, battery terminals, and cleaned up the wires. car runs really really smooth now. I'm quite happy.
Once the weather gets better I'm going to wash and paint the car, touch up the rust areas and re-black the trim. should be pretty spiffy.
i may or may not put the exhaust back on. still not decided on that one.
and of course the plague of the lifted subaru has struck and the pass side inner c/v boot tore.. I've got another axle to put in and I have another inner boot.. not sure which I'll do yet,
I HAVE TOO MANY SUBARUS .. I currently have 4... all lined up on the street. the two lifted rigs, the red parts car and a recently acquired $150 90 loyale.
