I used Mother's Back to Black.   It worked ok... but fades within 2-3 months.    I searched for a cheaper 'home solution'... but did not find any.    Some guys have used plastic paint.   I was afraid it would peel.

Could not understand that for the life of me...

 

 

HAHAHA yea I wasn't sure on that either but when he asked what motor I have and that really (costly$$$$$) oil filter is for a 93 Cherokee not a 84 Subaru, I'm not really sure where I was going with it lol. :banghead:

Anyways my cars like to blow up for some reason so I'm ganna try to spend some money on this rebuild so it wont go.................BOOM!!!

 

 

The motor is an EA82 out of a 89 gl 1.8 its ganna have a Weber 32/36 DGEV, I'm ganna try to port and polish it a little bit, with custom header and 2 1/4'' exhaust<<(not sure if that's a good size) or should I go 2 1/2'' exhaust??? And need some input on the PP? 

 

Everyone is probably thinking "why spend the money on an EA why not just go EJ swap its better" well unless someone is ganna buy all the stuff I have for this and buy me an EJ I'm going this route. :)

 

And sorry about the confusion guys. :confused:

Well I'm not 4wd anymore so I could lower the shock, as in I made a custom mount. (I'll take pics of the right side when I do it.)

 

But I took some ideas from AE86 hachi. Kind of like this.

The front, I did some mods so the strut can slip down father, but because I'm only 2wd now, so I cut the part that bolts to the hub so everything would stay together I'll take some pics when I can.
