i went to Oreilly and bought a Air filter during my lunch for the SVX, and installed it in the parking lot. I like the quick release on the air filter box on the SVX, compared to the Legacy where you have to use a screwdriver...

A few weeks ago I replaced both rear struts on my '89 GL Touring wagon. Got tires for my 15" pugs and now I'm riding on them. but since I bought it I've also replaced the thermostat, both radiator hoses and the radiator itself.

 

Tomorrow for the Outback:

New tires, replace front right axle, and drain tranny grease in favor of some Redline 75/90 ns.

Just wondering what size tire size you went with? And,is your wagon lifted?

Good thread!

 

I finally got tired of smashing my knuckles into the stereo trying to get the brat in gear and fixed my shifter linkage. I've got a 5sp in the brat and for some reason didn't replace the bushings in the shift linkage before I installed it. I was having a really rough time getting it into gear. I didn't have the proper bushings, so I rigged something up with what I had in my junk box of nuts/bolts and other stuff.

 

I then adjusted the clutch cable and now its shifting perfectly. :banana:

How recent is recent?

 

a few weeks ago I swapped a new engine into the Beast

Then I made a new custom exhaust that never goes below any crossmembers...

 

Swapped an LSD and new rear axles into the Beast

 

Then I replaced the front struts after I broke one of the tops wheelin and replaced both front axles while I was in there

 

I welded the bumper mounts back onto my rusty Brat, then patched some of the larger holes in the bed...

 

Did a lot of welding on Robbie's car before the Subaru show...

Also been helping my roomate put a new core support on his '94 Impreza wagon rally car

Nothing special on mine.

 

Just installed a new GPS unit, resprayed the air box on the carby to make it look nice.

 

 

Over the past 6 months I have done:

* Seats

* Pedals

* Gear Knob

* Momo Wheel

* Pioneer Headunit + DNA Speakers

* 3" Tacho

* 3" straight pipe (No Cat) + 5" Canon Muffler (Gives it that deep boxer sound).

 

Planned for the next 12 Months:

* EJ22 or MPFI EA82 (can't stand the ************ economy of the carby)

* Get a new hub engineered so I can run the 5 Stud WRX rims.

* Respray engine bay.

* Fog Lights

In the last couple weeks I have:

-Reupholstered both front seats (I'll start the back seat later this week, most likely.)

-Repacked grease in the inner CV to stop it from clicking.

-Replaced the hatch lift supports. (Was tired of holding it up with my head when loading/unloading crap from the back) :lol:

Today i picked up my new subaru to transfer the motor out of my current one into. The current loyale is rusted out and not worth fixing the rust, so i got a non running 94 loyale to put the motor in! $150 bucks! With CD player, and Rack and 3 alloys. Anyone locally want these wheels? Come with tires. I will post in the classifieds too.

I looked at my 83 coupe as I walked by it sitting in the garage

 

looked at my 08 Impreza as I walked by it to go somewhere

 

I had to shampoo the complete interior of my 95 Legacy ( the beater POS daily driver) because one of my dogs thought it would be cool to poo inside it while I was inside the bank...then he made sure he spread it ALL over.:-\ I mean I call it a POS all the time but that doesnt mean its ok to do THAT inside it!

This morning: oil change, new OEM drain plug, and new filler cap. Evidently the OEM cap decided to give up its seal's ghost and vibrate off of the filler neck. Oddly enough, my '85 did exactly the same thing at about the same age.
