I started pulling it apart today, The only real rust i found was in the back tray, so I decided to remove the back tray and it'll be replaced with Aluminum diamond tread plate. See attached photo.
The engine started up staight away, after a check of the oil and filters etc. It runs really nicely and has the electronic distributor, SWEET.
The under body is in excellent condition, as are most panels, it's been rust proofed from new i think, so it's really paid off now!
I wee trip to the panel beaters will freshen it up and give it a fresh coat of paint and redo the graphics, bumpers etc. nice
I'll be replacing the interior with good condition panels and leather Legacy seats, plus a legacy Momo steering wheel. I'll have to install sounds as well, Just a CD/MP3 head unit, 2 way components in the doors and a 6X9 sub behind the passenger seat.
I'll then be fitting a 5 speed D/R and rear disks, then putting it back on the road.
It's in too go a nic to convert to a dedicated off roader, so I'll keep looking for a donor vehicle for that project.
I'll post more pics when i have them.
