    Born and raised in Hawaii. First project car was a 1986 Subaru Brat and everything ignited from there. Picked up a 1979 a year later and I believe I have the only Brat's in Hawaii.

  1. Don't happen to have pictures do you?
  2. Amazon has a few choices to choose from. I’m just wanting to verify it fits on an EA71. It’s verified it fits on an EA81/EA82. I’m not quite sure the fender difference between the two.
  3. Hey everyone, Wondering what the widest tires you could run on an EA71? To be more specific, a 1979 Subaru BRAT on stock 13" inch wheels. I've done some research and see 185/70R13 and 185/80R13 are common choices but very hard to source. Further into my research 205/60R13 pops up as well but whenever it was mentioned it was for an EA81 vehicle. Can anyone verify 205/60R13 fits on their EA71 vehicle? Post pictures of your setup? I'd appreciate it. I am trying to replicate this look but with the stock 13" inch wheels: https://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/149872-1978-subaru-brat/?tab=comments#comment-1256530 I don't need to replicate it this exactly. What I'm mainly looking for is the look where the tires protrude beyond the fenders a bit. I appreciate your time, Preston
  4. Appreciate the feedback!
  5. Hey viewers, Just wanting to know what upgrades you have done to your headlights? I have a 79 Brat and I'm looking to upgrade the round headlights that I have. They're way too dim at night and they're probably a hazard to me and for those around me as well. If you chime in let me know what you have done! Feel free to link your upgrades as well. Thanks for the help!
  6. Lol. I’ve got another pair or two laying around. Yeah, the rear slide windows are strange. Not sure how I feel about them either.
  7. Hey Paul! Looked at the link and I think I may have identified my wheel in the ‘Aftermarket 13” inch wheel’ category. It doesn’t really have a name but it’s listed as ‘8 Spoke D Hole Chrome 13’ What do you think? I’ve got a few pics on my phone right now that I attached. I’ll take close ups and better ones later tomorrow.
  8. Thanks for sharing! Didn't know the side rails were OEM. I have them on my BRAT. I would like to find more on the 4x140 wheels. I'm assuming mine aren't OEM and are aftermarket. They're 13 inch and they're chrome. I'll post pictures later. Maybe someone can identify them.

  10. Got pics of your engine bay? How do you like the MSD ignition?

    Any updates on this project?
  12. The part number would be awesome! I'd appreciate it. I'll get to cleaning the needle today and see what happens.
