Well, I modified the fuel capacity on my 87 wagon, LOWERING the amount of fuel the tank can hold by approximately one-quarter of a gallon.

This custom mod was performed by backing the Subie up against a log lying parallel to the car, while on an offroad adventure. :lol:


sweet. better than me hitting an spare alternator fell off truck ahead of me at 60mph and cutting hole in my floor board, denting plastic fuel tank and smashing muffler.....on my crx si previous long time ago

keeping on topic i cleaned terminals on the 2001 interstate battery, charge it with charger and put back into my brat, drove to the local pub, and had a few and came back home......

Thanksaroo Ben!

Getting there, huh. The bumper really ties the rest of the car together. Looks more rugged, plus I can use all this stuff (Not just for looks)

I got them on ebay I'll find you some with a link

I had to modify them to get that effect... I'm still looking for the right solution
which may wind up being projectors for an s-10

these don't put out quite
enough light.

Rallied mine today. Got up to the top of a really rutted, steep-in-some-areas logging road, then hauled balls to the bottom again.

Got out to check for damage and saw my brake pads smoking... hmmm... probably not a good thing, but everything is back to normal now.

Joy Ride my EA81T.

The last piece of the puzzle came in the mail yesterday; so, after work today I finished the replacement turbo install in my 84 Hardtop GL Turbo.

Previously, I've driven this car a cumulative one mile or so since I purchased this car a couple of months ago and this was the first time it has made boost properly. I can't be more stoked about it!!

I changed out my MT fluid with 80W-90 Lucas oil. My race car sounding '99 outback now sounds like a kitten. Found a new roof rack xbar at a yard in Ohio for $15 so now I have a complete set.
Life is good.

I replaced both V-belts today, due to the rear belt failing.

All is well now!

Made love in the back for the first time last night with my fiance. Let me tell you, I preferred my Durango over the Subie for such duties. It's way to cramped in the back.
