Here's just a sample my friend! It's been such a bummer, i didn't have lug nuts to put them on, then i got them Monday but had to work and woke up with a vicious cold today! Ha what gives? So they're just chillin in the garage. Oh well patience is our greatest virtue right?

Finally put my new wheels and tires on! 14x6 steel wheels off of??? And 27X8.50R14 General Grabber AT2s which came highly recommended by several people including jj421 (Grant) What is truly awesome is i have my full turning radius back, with ZERO rub anywhere i love it and putting these on took out the shimmy and vibrations i always felt!
Now to get this trim on...eventually. Ha.

Then drove to 4 different stores looking for new studs, luckily napa had 6 and i bought the right lug nuts...
M12X1.25 not M12X1.50!!! What a waste of time, i was able to get back, weld in the new studs, and put that all back together. Next thing to do is brakes as i can see how worn the brake pads are. All is well now but GEEZUS that was frustrating!

...and here is my fix. Grind off the old clip part, then drill and tap a hole for a 8/32 X 1" screw, then apply 3M mounting tape to where the old tape was on the trim. Next line up the clips to the holes, feed them through then attach a fender washer and nut. Tighten them up and your good to go!

Finally the finished product! The car is a 92' Loyale but instead of Loyale it now says Subaru because i put trim on off of an 89' GL. Sweet. Owning an old subaru you truly have to think outside the box!

What are you towing with your hitch? Doesn't look overly solid to me, just like it's bolted through the sheetmetal and the rear bumper. Feel free to correct though.

The main reason i wanted to screw the trim through the body panels is because i live in the crappiest uh i mean windiest state ever. 35+ gusts are an everyday thing. The wind literally never stops. Ever. That's why im going to try and transfer to the northwest or Breckenridge, Colorado. We cant do 30 years in Cheyenne!
I need more clips as well, i will go back to the junkyard and get more clips, as i need 8 more. I can get some extra too, just because!

The beginning of the new rear bumper. I used 1 1/4" tube steel one foot long each, put them in the slot then drilled and tapped all the way through them and used the factory bolt locations.

Reroute exhaust out the back, i love the subaru exhaust but 2.5 hrs of it at 75 mph isn't very fun.
Get better brakes!
And get better speakers! Haha anyways here's a pic.

Last night i was able to fab up a new bumper, only took about two hours. I need to finish attaching the hitch, paint it, and come up with a spare tire swing carrier. Next will be fixing the front bumper i made and improve it some more!

Was driving back to Cheyenne from Golden again yesterday and decided to hop off the interstate at the Carr, CO exit and take a dirt road into Wyoming. Needless to say there was a lot of mud and it was a whole lot funner than driving 45 on a dirt road than driving 75 on the pavement!

Alas, my wife took the children up to her moms last weds and that first night i stayed up till 8:30 that night working on my car haha. I found a bad set of bearings and axle in the right front. Took it all apart and got it all.back together tonight. No more strange noises up there anymore.
However, i decided to take the IAC off and take it apart...i know, i know why? Why would i do this? Well i found many springs and a coil thing. Instead of putting it back together i thought i'd just do a pick and pull. I found one off of a 93' Leg and came home to put it on and let me tell you they were completely different. This ones coolant port was in a different spot and had three prongs for power on top, and the black and white were backwards. Either way i tried it out, the wires with black.to black and white to white it died. Reversed wires, the thing idled at 3000! What? Could not change it no matter what i tried.
So long story short, i took that thing off and reassembled the original after thoroughly cleaning it with brake cleaner and reinstalled it. Holy crap! Here is this EJ22 ive been missing, it was like a new car!.
Words of advice, don't ever take that IAC for granted folks!

I am REALLY hoping i can start a build thread on rescuing this 1980 Brat found behind a house here in Cheyenne. Me and the owner are in the process of getting a title. Its in really good shape.

I also found this little gem, the bed has zero rust in it. In total i have found 7 Brats this week!
I'm pretty excited for what the future holds...
