So while the USMB was down, it gave me time to go out and get more Subaru's I got an 84 Wagon and an 87 DL Wagon. Uncoolperson (Andy) hooked me up with an SJR lift he had kickin around, So I figured I would toss it on the 84 wagon.
This is what it looked like the day I pulled it home

We got it here to West Seattle no problem. It was funny watching that driver's rear tire jump up and down on the freeway like you warned us. lol.
Driver's window wouldn't roll up. . . We'll get to it later this week and begin finishing it up. He's happy, thanks Jeff.


Good to hear he's happy with it. The window won't roll up now? That's crazy I had rolled it up and down a few times, and never had any problem's......might be just a simple connection.....Hopefully.

Other than that is everything eles OK?

Good to see that it's getting some very much needed TLC. Funny the Lugnuts where loose I even rechecked them in Conway even after I left the house. Keep up the good work!!!:)
