  1. If you're after a new seat, can try the BRZ / EA86 seat - They have been successful by all reports for later gen BRATS ... Not sure if they'll fit in earlier model though ... Cheers, Bantum ...
  2. I've been following your posts on FB - great work ... Do have a query on how much stuff do you have left ? Ciao, Bantum ...

  4. There be wiring diagrams floating around somewhere here, on FB & AUSubaru ...

  6. Did some measuring of my own 5MT & R160 Differentials : https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipM1E6B40KKf2Z3dGy9xVpPCbtRL4gkblZ2tRd291aSfABwY5PSE54eVv1s7PJ5JeQ?key=QXJNWkhHejk2SFBHNFVxc2JzeHBYZkRQYUtVWGNB Nice to know they are not the same ... Cheers, Bantum ...

    rear differential locker

    The 'R160 Diff Locker Project' has been started over on FB, you're welcome to check it out & fill in the survey. We'll be looking at making a prototype eventually that can be field tested, then it should be available for production. More info here : https://www.facebook.com/R160.Diff.Locker.Project/ Cheers, Bantum ...

    Complete GL to BRAT Swap

    Yerp - The 5 speed may not fit in the tunnel, as is a bigger unit than old one + the EA82 is wider & will require rail mods. I'd get both drivelines & lay them out, once you have them side by side & note the differences - you'll see what will / wont work. Yes you could cut the tunnel & rails from a donor - lot of work though. P.S. - You'd want the strut towers as well. Ciao, Bantum ...

    Complete GL to BRAT Swap

    Yer, I'd go with an EA81 for a direct swap, anything later will require modifying ... :/ If you do have your heart set on a later model, go for EJ SOHC gear as it should fit without too much trouble. May also require 'massaging' the tunnel, depending on which transmission you use ... Cheers, Bantum ...
  13. Yer - it'll be easier to replace the whole line, as you'll be forever chasing rusted spots ...

    5 lug, hub redrill pros/cons

    Hub redrilling is not ideal in my book, so I'd go with the 5 stud conversion ... Cheers, Bantum ...
  15. Not sure what your after exactly, as this site is more for car engines ... Link to supplier : http://www.ramengines.com/page6.php Cheers, Bantum ...

    Subaru XV - Ute ...

    Hi all, I have an interesting proposal that I would like to share with you ... This is an extract taken from my AUSubaru site : Also running a bit of a poll here ... I'm trying to get some wider interest in it, to see if we can get it into production ... Cheers, Bantum ...
  17. The metal 'innards' of rear bumper may well be crushed / bent. hard to tell unless its removed for inspection. Cheers, Bantum ...

    My '83 GL Coupe - Hardtop SSS

    Yes compression test will tell if rings are good ... Are you sure the smokes coming from inside the exhaust ? As there could be a leak externally dripping onto it ? Cheers, Bantum ...
  21. Could be just a loose wire, You would need to take the dash apart in order to fix it though. Cheers, Bantum ...

    rear differential locker

    Far as I know they are in 'testing' mode, so will most likely be next year sometime before we know any more. P.S. - That's in AU so will be like $600 to $800 US ... Cheers, Bantum ...
