aright i need some help now...
i'm pretty sure i found a windshield gasket... but its at a dealership in texas...
the place is called Pagan-Lewis Subaru... in Corpus Christi...
so any texans in the area wanna give them a call for me?
361-855-3452 part # is the same as above... (665 002 820)
save me some long distance...
if they do have a gasket i'll post how i found it where it was... if it works it'll be a great source of parts...

The dealer gasket would not be the best choice. The 2 I used from a dealer were OVERPRCED and were stiff and dry.
PRP has a BRAND NEW one for like $50

now they have been discontinued... also, they told me the price was 89 bucks... so i dunno what to believe...
i asked if they'd be willing to make more... he said that if we did a group buy of 25+ gaskets they would do a special batch... there would also be a large price reduction with a group buy... (he said up to $50 per)
so how many people need gaskets?!?!

These gaskets ALSO fit ALL gen 1 wagons, coupes and sedans....EXCEPT GF. They can work in the GF , but it's tight in the upper L and R corners. (But better than a rotton gasket!)
We better get them, as I'm sure the demand is coming. A leaking front gasket will destroy these cars!
I personally don't need any, as I already bought from them.

tell me about destroying these cars!! I don't want to do the repairs till I get it fixed

If it comes down to needing more I'll take a third.
MUST HAVE For any vintage Subarus that are intended to stay on the road for twenty more years.

alright we need lots more people... tell your friends! i think EVERY gen1 car needs a new one... i don't care what they say... if they don't need one now they will soon!
perhaps a mod can sticky this to attract more people?

I just ordered 1 of the 2 they have left, so there is ONE up for grabs imediatly, I got it for $75 from Toni at ext 212, once again their product number is WCR288
I'm still in for the 2 on the group buy, she said it would take 6-8 weeks to make a new batch

AND....cut the old windshield out with a razor blade. Don't try to remove it with the old gasket intact. You will crack the glass!
To install, use a greased rope in the grove and pull from the inside, while someone pushes from the outside.
