I haven't been on the forum as much lately because my `84 DL hasn't been giving me much grief and I've been just driving it. I have been worrying since I sold my `00 Outback that the Desert Fox would have to spend a winter in the salt and snow of western MI. I wanted another 4wd old gen subie, but ended up with this thing instead.
It's a `91 Loyale fwd auto wagon. I picked it up for $350 with a wicked coolant leak and a wasted rear wheel bearing. I still need to do the basic tune up stuff, rear brakes, and that wheel bearing, but for the cost of all that I will have a pretty reliable and cheap second car. 140k miles, Its originally from an old lady in Florida, and has only spent 5-6 years up here so the body and under side are in pretty nice shape. I don't know if I will bother much with the rust that is starting to show up, that will depend on my budget and how soon winter comes. I will undercoat and do my best to preserve what is there.
First up though, was installing these H alloys that I had been sitting on a while.
I blasted then powder coated them, and they turned out pretty nice if I do say so myself.
I think it looks good, and I should have a good ride for under $500 when I'm done. I just was never a fan of the stock loyale caps.
