right front wheel bearings - twice

all axles front right - twice

front calipers

gas tank was pulled for a leak

horn

lights

carburator

engine

distributor

distributor cap

plugs

plug wires

The sunroof leaks but that will wait a little bit.

Badges? Badges? We don't need no steenkin' badges!

 

Sorry... I couldn't help myself.

 

Seriously, though. You need the badges to pass inspection? I'm glad we only have an emissions test here.

Thanks everyone! It was a great feeling! It was only possible with the solid information, encouragement and parts acquired from members here on the board.

 

I actually got to the show last night. We took the Brat and the Baja... we were the only Subies there :(

 

Premium gas is $2.87... the Baja will have a little nap. So add another vintage Subie to the daily driver list, I drove her to work today and I'll be driving it until the salt trucks roll. (or when it's a zillion degrees outside... no A/C).

 

Now we can concentrate on getting the '50 Ford F-1 tweaked out. She'll be registered tomorrow.

 

Then the '86 will get her turn... she's stripped and primed.
