I fell in love with a Subaru Brat a few years ago while at a stop light. Ever since then, I've been looking for one in decent shape.   I found this "Brat lee" and now am now the proud owner.

I don't have a ton of pics yet, but here I am getting ready for a test drive.  Has the back seats and body in great shape.

Interior needs some help so I'm hoping this forum will introduce me to some people in Portland,OR area who can help me down the right path.

Nope, got mine in Hood River.  Wouldn't surprise me if there were others out there in the Eugene area with similar paint jobs.

You know what; that is the one I saw on there. Eugene is when it started popping up on the "close" to this location search on craigslist. The last owner put a lot of effort into it.

He ripped out the carpet, so wanted to get something down that's durable and fits.. not some standard carpet kit.  Also, the seats are in fine shape, but I'd love to put something a little more modern.  The Stereo is complete crap, but I don't want to cut holes into the doors or anything dramatic.  I have a good friend who can help me to build some custom box to fit behind the seats. 

Dash is cracked in all kinds of ways, which is expected and typical.  I don't know if it's even possible to find a new dash, but that's on my fantasy wishlist.

 

And, yes. The Prior owner had it for 4 years and has done a lot of work on the engine and removed almost all of the rust.

Welcome fellow female brat owner!

I have an '86, I'm a Subaru nut, and I'm a girl :)

Lovely Brat you've picked up!
