  1. Better be quick, he is saying that he has only a handful left and there won't be any more. I think the demand was somewhat overstated given the price.
  2. That website is just reselling the stock made by Phil's Rotary's, with a healthy mark-up.

    Tell the WRX driver his UEL headers cost him HP, and see him Einstein out of that..

    Brat Mk 2

    There was a gentleman from Scotland on this forum who did the same in reverse, suggest you contact him as he may well have the parts you need... I can't believe you are importing a Brumby from Queensland, to convert to LHD...surely the cost out of the US would have been far cheaper.
  6. If/when you do find a new one, those rebuilt units are pretty hit-and-miss. I bought some EA82 rear calipers and the bolts were wrong, the piston seals weren't the correct size (not surprising as the only company who makes them now is Centric, and no-one has stock), and the body of the caliper rusted very quickly. I ended up stripping them down, wire-wheeling and re-plating the calipers and pins, and then re-assembling. Can't beat doing it yourself with this type of stuff.
  7. I think there would be a LONG line of people interested in finding that. Especially from California / Arizona / Texas. Most interior parts can be readily repainted - my centre console is all redone with grey plastic paint. The door panels should be fine, the only part getting difficult to find is the door handle shroud which get very brittle with age. Dash pads can be recovered, or use a mat.
  8. SOA have a plant in Indiana where the *shudder* Baja was made. No idea about the engines or other machined items though, I'm guessing just sheetmetal pressing and assembly. JDM stuff (real JDM, not just stuff that wasn't sold in the US, or Australia, etc) is pretty limited in Subaru-land compared to Toyota. I think even their Kei-cars were readily available in select markets - it's just Subaru offices choose not to import models based on perceived market demand (or in the case of Subaru Australia, it had to be AWD or they wouldn't sell it...the BRZ was a big decision to offer locally).

    ??Glue removal??

    Goo-Gone may work, but I don't know about its availability in Spain (I have only ever seen it sold in the US, I stocked up when I was last there). In Australia we use Eucalyptus Oil which works in a similar way but stinks. Best bet might be to get the parts you need shipped from a donor overseas (I'd assume they shouldn't cost much in shipping).
  10. Bennie, Brumby's don't have side intrusion bars as far as I'm aware - only the coupes Farmers didn't need them, only the city folk... In terms of importing, it's really not difficult at all for a car pre-1989 (by December this year it will be any car > 25 years old) - as long as you get a VIA approved prior to the car landing (cost $50). Anything post-1989 is probably all kinds of red tape and $$. Bring on December 1st, anything made before 1995 gives us access to a few interesting JDM models...or wait until 2022 and find a 22B...

  12. Good to know for anyone looking at importing a hatch from the US to a RHD country...

    looking for parts brands for my 2014 impreza

    I believe mid 90s Civic coilovers can be adapted to fit. WRX / STI struts are too short stock to drop them in.
  14. Access is from the lens side. It should just be sealed with a rubber gasket, maybe a previous owner used a sealant to "fix" a water leak. Maybe try working around with a thin putty knife or similar. It is also possible your wiring has failed rather than the globe - I've had a couple like that due to the age of the copper and the connection.
