My 88 Brumby was a GL, the RED BEASTIE has quad lights, targa top, bull bar, roll bar, tonneau cover, really slick grey vinyl floor covers, no AC nor PS, but I got a wireless!

The Red Beastie remained a GL until she was repainted now the badges sit proudly in the glove box, where I suggest they shall remain. Unless of course we verify GL really means- Galactic Lightspeed or similar.

Still canít get my head around any real need for power steering in the Beasties!

Not true, you just have to get the right badge I've swapped Sunnie's badge from the Subaru GL to the SUBARU one and it fits in the exact same spot perfectly

I can't remember if I pulled that badge from a wagon or a sedan, I would say a wagon...

Oh righto, I thought they were longer with GL on the end, my bad.

Cheers Jake

If you drove her on the beach Ray, you'd want power steering.. makes a big difference. Holds better in the tracks and stops the steering wheel flinging out of your hand over the ruts but on the black top, you really don't need it.

Live at the beach mate! Beaches are for fishing & walking on & given the intergalactic lightspeed of the red beastie (probably should refer to her as redeye) full tillt on the sand would result in glass thus no need for assisted steering.

PS, my late grandfather (WW1 veteran) used the term redeye to keep a very young Ray away from the scary monster (Redeye) that lived in the dam near the house. Redeye would grab unwarry & waywould kids and drown them. Irish term I think......it worked!

hahaha.. we don't want to turn sand into glass

I found with mine (and I've converted 3 of my personal ones) that once I've converted it, I would never go back but if I had guns like yours, then I wouldn't need it either

I know that you can drive these without it but if you have the parts, why not use them
