In progress is my 83 TurboTraction/RX wagon.
3" Ozified, 14" pugs with street tires, 5 Speed 88 RX Trans. 3.70 gear ratio with matching LSD, disc brakes all 4 corners, and custom front axles. Picture is old and pre-lift. Its been in the garage far too long but im getting there.
I bought the car not running. I have never driven it. I lifted it, did a trans swap, diff swap, column/key swap, full brake change, axle conversion, etc.....before EVER even hearing it run. Guts?

Not lifted yet, but the PK 3/3 lift is in the garage boxed up ready to go on when I have a hand installing it and my 87 GL is out of the garage, but I will be lifting my 82 BRAT, bobbing it, and maybe experimenting with armoring the rockers a bit. They have rust on them now, but it will be fixed, ive thought about using angle iron of some size down there, havnt test fit anything though... just seems like it would help to keep the rockers nice and pretty (and give a stronger jack point on the body) Probably gonna have open diffs, and its going to be sold when its done even though it runs good.

My first one (still have it):
1986 GL Brat http://usmb.net/gallery/album89/after
3" BYB kit from Australia. ShawnW and I did the Installation
86k and this one sees no midwest salt. it stays safely tucked away. Plan on keeping this to give it to my son when he can drive....
Has short style push bar, low roll bar, and Genuine subaru 14" alloys with 205/70R14 tires.
My second one (sold):
1982 GL Wagon - Mountain Grizzly http://usmb.net/gall...lbum93/PDC_0331
3" BYB kit from Australia. DesertSoob installed lift kit. ( I bought vehicle from him and turned it into mountain grizzly)
had weber 32/36, and GL-10 door panels. had power steering and power windows... sold it to a local guy who is still wheeling it.
Had LSD in rear, XT6 alt, rear disc brakes
My third one (traded/crushed):
1984 Turbo Brat http://usmb.net/gallery/album93/tbnew2
3" BYB/Ozified kit. Installed by Chris V. before I bought the vehicle. he also put a 4 speed into it.
I beat the hell out of the fenderwells and did lots of cutting to make the 30's fit. with the turbo and the 4 speed, I could still smoke the tires
Rusty, rusty, rusty. traded to ShawnW for another Brat...
My fourth one (still have):
1982 GL Brat http://usmb.net/gall...um109/PDC_0626b
4"/3" BYB/Ozified lift, modified and tweaked to be about 6" total lift (body/susp), but the weight of the winch and burly bumper bring it back down to 5".

XT6 alt, Accel Supercoil, custom 2.25" exhaust and Magnaflow muffler (1.75" headers), rear disc brakes.
Currently awaiting a 5 speed conversion and installation of 135 Amp alt (direct fit )

Bought it for 800 needed lots of work, (still does) Fixed alot of stuff like vice grips holding exhaust on. Webered it, been out on one mini hatch patrol outing, don't know if that means i'm a part of it or not? The hatch has 27" kumhos but I usually roll around on the 13" wagon wheels when i'm on the street. Done lots of stereo mods It has a 1500watt amp with mtx 10" subs Pioneer 3 ways in back and 2 ways up front. Its a fun multi colored beast! Black hood maroon body beige fender blue rear hatch.
Heres a pic.
This is a better pic i think.
