btw for the center caps I choose F, as it is the most period correct. MN is like an ancient indian burial ground for miscellaneous subaru parts, you'll never find a complete car but you'll find a farmer with a EA82 he has been using to pull around his generator or some old subaru parts at a swap meet.

Already refreshed and installed the center caps that came with the Enkei wheels. 

I need to get an updated photo. They look okay. Still not my favorite - but a lot better than nothing at all. ;)

I realise it would not be easy or cheap... But I wish the rear wheel arches could be put back to OEM... You seriously have to lower the rear!!

The stock fenders severely restrict what size tires/wheels you can fit on the car with the wagon-style suspension on this '70 model.  Plus the stock fenders were in bad shape and fugly :P  All the other FF-1s can keep their stockers.

So much that I do not believe I can make OEM - the arches were completely modified. 

Heck, I don't even have anywhere to mount up seat belts as the mounting holes were cut and filled  :D  :P

Sorry bout that...  The holes disapeared with the rest of the bodywork that had to be redone for side sills.  Never planned on using the stock belts :(

Not a problem... we drilled (gasp!!!! ahhhh!!) new holes and she has belts again. (new belts too! did not re-use the old belts)

I finally got the courage to just do eeet!

What type of stuff do you have on the board (on the tripod)?  I love when car owners/builders do that!  It's fun to see before and afters pictures!

I'll snap a photo of it for you! :)

I scanned in some of the old brochures and the spec sheet, blew them up along with a few photos of the car and made a poster out of it.

 

 

Oh!  And check out her new floor mats.

 

Fit surprisingly well being that they are from a BRZ!!  :P

 

 

 

Here is a shot of the center caps installed as well.... they look okay? right?  :unsure:

Yep, they look OK... However you need some badges! Here is a good place to make your own: http://www.heko.co.uk/index.html

 

They have some for Subaru and the finished results are excellent quality. I have a set, in blue, on my '74 DL and they still look fantastic.

I still need to get a more detailed photo of the "poster" I made but..... here it is.

 

 

 

I tossed in the photo from one of the brochures of the open trunk with red luggage as I'm trying to match it 100%

 

I'm missing a red hatbox  :P  - I will find one sooner or later!  :D

I like that it made it to the Show, I like the Poster, I like how the BRZ floor mats fits...

 

They look Good and Elegant there.
