G'day all

I've been lurking on here for a while & have picked up heaps of useful info from you all. I was thinking it was about time I at least posted a few pics of my Brumby on here for you guys to have a look at. I took a 12 hour return trip to tow it home on a trailer to my house.

Since getting it I have mainly concentrated on getting it in good running order so I can use it to travel to and from work. I have also got hold of 2 different sets of wheels in 13 & 14 inch & fitted gen 1 Legacy seats. The cover was gone off the back so I got a new one of those too. My most recent addition is an Addco rear swaybar that I got Jegs to ship over for me.

Okay enough outta me, here's the photos:

Hey there, that extra fuel filler cap is from the LPG tank. Due to the very high fuel prices we experience over here it is popular to get your car converted to run on LPG. I don't like it though & have since removed all the kit & would Iike to eventually weld up the extra filler hole.
This is a pic of the gas cylinder when it was in the bed

This took up way too much room in the bed as well

That's a nice hitch, I really like it. Great looking brat, too, of course.

No, LPG will only save you money on gas prices and keep the engine cool. No "power gain" here, when you switch from LPG to gas is like hitting a turbo button in city streets. Great for commuting. Tried it on a GL-10.

No that's right no power gain to be had, if anything it is slower. The mileage on both gas & LPG is worse than before too but it is just over half the price of regular gas, so it is a considerable saving if you do a lot of miles. The octane rating of LPG is higher so you can bump up the timing to try & get some performance back.

Can you email me over some large close up photos of your BRUMBY decals? I'd love to add them to my line of Subaru decals in my ebay store.

 

Also do you have a part # on that rear sway bar?

 

email: earl@bandrcom.com

 

thanks, earl

Hey Earl,
The addco swaybar was part #353, I'm happy with it so far.
Can do with the photos of the decals for ya shortly, may grab a spare set off ya when there done. I'm a happy customer of yours, got the little decal for under the 4wd lever.
I went out & hit some trails in the Brumby today, so tomorrow after a wash I will snap some shots for ya.

Cheers Jake

Hey everyone,
It's been a while since an update on my Brumby & recently I've made my best change to it so far.
It's taken a couple of months to gather all the bits together & get organised. But as of last week it has power steering fitted.
Even though they don't need it, it is a huge improvement to the driving experience in these little cars.
The car that most of the bits came from was an 83 Touring Wagon. It's a straight forward bolt in procedure, as long as you get all the right parts off the wagon.
The first shot is one of the wagons I got some parts off. Then the next one is the job in progress & the last one was taken this morning on my way to work. It got a wash yesterday & I put my 14" wheels back on for the hell of it.

Cheers Jake
