Well it's getting close to being finished. I still need a gas peddle. Maybe I'll post something in the wanted section.

Here are a few photos of what I have so far.

Here is the roll bar and push bar. I didn't take any before photos so just imagine that they looked just as bad as the rims:

The decals should be finished tomorrow so I'll have those installed next week. Then I have to mount the tires and install the tailgate. Then just a couple little odds and ends then she's finished.:banana:

I was waiting till I got the BRAT stripe applied to snap a few more photos. I've just about got all the trim back on. The tires are mounted and on the BRAT. Yesterday I had to hunt down new wheel bearings and front axles. I've got the driver's side finished and today I'm going to put the passenger's side together. Then I'll start working on getting everything in the truck bed put together.

I should have some photos by next week. This BRAT is really coming along. I'm still waiting for a gas peddle and heater control valve. :)

For some reason I tend to loose interest in a vehicle if it's not a constant project. So when my projects are complete I usually like to move on. We'll see though. I let everyone know when and if I put it up on ebay.:grin:

Howzabout you just give it to me and I'll make payments ;)

And just a note, you should be careful when posting pics that are uncensored,
you could get banned for posting pornographic subaru material. :grin:
