Hi,

Installed two new front fenders today. Hood and front passenger door from an '86 GL-10. New Bosal muffler, two pugs. I don't have enough good pug lug nuts.

Power washed it all over, it was dirty from setting so long.

Hey,

Yea, the fenders are genuine Subaru. It looks like Frankenbu. Seven different colors.

Front sway bar removed. Parts left out cost nothing. I don't need it where I'll be driving. Suspension, axles, ball joints have allready been gone through. Has power steering, windows/locks. I took the AC off firewall foreward a few years ago.

Thats cool, bout $300 for both.. Anyhoo, you took the Sway bar off, why? I know it doesn't do much, but it takes corners at higher speeds better. You are using this as a road car, right? Won't be going on trails with those tires anyway.

Getting close, I spy 5 diffrent colors Lol!

Hey,

"Anyhoo, you took the Sway bar off, why? You are using this as a road car, right? Won't be going on trails with those tires anyway."

I'll be running back roads through the hills. Gravel roads, ATV type trails. Some back roads here you drive through creeks:)

I can get some articulation with the bar off and it helps with ground clearance. The tires...well, they're just what's on it for now. 195/60.

I've got the parts for front and rear bars if I want to go that way too. LSD and rear discs as well.

I intend to powerwash the "new" motor next.
