    Junkyard bits..

    those look like pre 1987ish logo mats, right? never seen such old ones before with logos on them.

    Tire size for Loyale

    although i no longer have a third gen, my first gen is currently running 155/60 R13 with white walls, i had such a hard time finding anything 13inch local that i just ordered them online, some strange branded tires i've never heard of before, but they've been fine for the last year, so im happy with that since the fastest i've ever been able to push the brat was 82mph on a downhill, sooo yeah anything pretty much works for it.

    Tire size for Loyale

    where did you find the beauty rings at? or are those the originals?
  4. yup, seems that i always have to grab a pair of channel locks and bend the pinchweld all along the side of the car on both sides whenever i buy another vehicle, not just Subaru's.
  5. i haven't seen a Tribeca of any model in a few weeks now, and i definitely haven't seen a 06-07 Tribeca in like 2 years, hideous vehicle.

    Seatbelt Chime

    instead of modifying such a new vehicle, why not just buy one of those fake snap in seat belt things on ebay? it's just the end piece of the seatbelt that clicks in to fool the vehicle thinking you're buckled in.

    any steering play? balljoints? lift a wheel off the ground and see if it has any play, check to see if they are the original balljoints. pictures would help alot as Moosens has stated, how much seat wear, seatbelt, and the rubber on the pedals, original clutch cable? originals seem to always go out around that mileage if it is truly at 75,000mi. alittle harder to tell with this one but check the brake pads and see if they're still the original with the fuji heavy industries stamped logo, but that's not a guarantee either. a 75,000 mile brat is very possible since mine is only at 68,500miles right now.
  8. are you making the best of all 3 into 1? i think you came out ontop due to the abundance of parts! as long as you can make atleast 1 brat out of everything that is fairly complete and running good. you'll be able to drive the brat for many years to come thanks to the extra parts from the others if 1 brat is all you're going after (which i highly recommend) ***if you have an extra set of mudflaps i'll be interested in buying them from you?
  9. what is the rubber even for on some crankpulleys anyways? i don't think the EA71 has them but the EJ's do, my Impreza split in half one day, luckly i found a replacement before just welding it on. what's it for? vibrations? even though the belt is made of rubber?

    Baja vs. Brat

    my friends are constantly riding in the back of mine, i've only ridden in them once since im usually the driver, it was actually quite enjoyable and relaxing going 65mph down the highway, it does get awkward staring at someone at a redlight though. in Texas you're allowed to ride in the bed of a pickup as long as it's below 40mph, so pretty much not the highway, i've had 3 different police vehicles trail behind me when i have my friends in the back, they stare hard, follow for a few minutes, then break away, not sure really why, twice on the highway and once on surface streets... the brat is a "pickup truck" in other countries but not a "pickup truck" in the U.S. due to the title saying passenger vehicle thanks to the extra 2 seats. and yes, they have lap belts in the back, mine have been jammed since the day i got it, so they're just decoration, but you're probably suppose to be buckled in due to the fact that it's considered passenger vehicle and the vehicle came with belts originally, it's a 2door car with 2 seats in the back, with a wall inbetween, with the seats facing the wrong way like a 60's Volvo, and then there's no roof, even though thats the least of my worries.... the headrest is more of a backrest, the rollbar is a nice comfortable headrest for breaking your skull open, and relaxing your head to the side introduces you to some healthy slamming onto your skull. im sure one day i'll get pulled over and i'll have to explain to the judge that this is how the car left the dealership.

    Baja vs. Brat

    definitely not offtopic! thank you for the info i had no idea about
  14. Subasaurus

    Lookie!

    same overhere in Texas, NEVER seen any Subaru older than 1991, i've seen 1 Loyale in the wild before, but had Colorado Plates so still unsure if that counted. only 2 1970's Subaru i've ever seen with my own eyeballs and those are the ones i currently own. same for 1980's Subaru's, ever only seen 4 in my life, and i also happen to own all 4 of those. perhaps it's me that keeps picking all of them up... oops.

    Baja vs. Brat

    oh interesting, never knew that! then i have no idea why it's 4 doors then, unless they took the Outback and chopped it like they did the GL Wagon and made a Brat? if that's not the case, then it was dumb to not provide a 2 door variant with a longer bed.
