Subie Boys , Lovey80 Resto

The new project we are about to start on in the new year. I believe this one is a full resto as the wagon was . ( http://www.ausubaru.com/forum/showth...0544#post80544 )

This one is to have a ej conversion and all wheel drive box and all the bells and whistles. I am looking forward to this one as it will be our first ej conversion . It is a sweet starting point . Doesn't look to have much rust or damage in any way. But with saying that , ya never know till ya look deep into it. It already has a byb 2" lift kit and has the scopion 14" wheels and FT7 nangkang's .

The starting pics, or if ya like , the before pics.

Thanks to Rick, Steve, Rosco and the rest of the Subi boys for agreeing to "pimp my ride". I would really have loved to have had the time to do this all myself but with overseas work committments this is just to hard to achieve. I also seriously doubt the finished product would be near the quality that the Subie boys can achieve.

So from my computer in the middle of the Sandpit i can watch my little "Scrappy" be pimped Gympie Style.

Cheers

Chris

Edit: A crucial sticking point in the project could be the aquisition of the RX Turbo rear end and the L-Series AWD box so if anyone comes across one please let us know it will be greatly appreciated!

At the moment it is looking to be painted a Gun Metal Gray color or similar. Blue has gone out the window except for the home subaru's.

That engine bay is looking a whole lot cleaner than when I bought it...... it should do with the amount of hours with the high pressure cleaners and degreaser used on it.

I can't wait to see it on the spit!

Good work lads keep up the good work.

EDIT: Gearbox and Diff have been found.

Cheers

Chris

Awesome! Another Brumby job! I'm going to watch this one, too. Only a few months until I can start looking for a brumby myself!
