Re: A few questions and an introduction

G’day Sasha! Your WRX is quite new for members on here by the old standards! Hopefully this is the start of a turn around. As for the wing, it should bolt down in the same places as the factory wing - from the inside of the boot lid. With the integrated stop light in the wing, I’d try and fit one on...

Re: 89 Targa Brumby

Bennie, that appears to have it, but is it possible to download the pdf, rather than flick one page at a time? Hey Suby Spanner, I think it comes down to what manual they’ve uploaded. I got a Gen3 manual (pretty sure it was from that site) that was difficult to use, until I worked out that it was f...

Re: 89 Targa Brumby

Different overall gearbox design unfortunately Subyroo. Might be useful to someone though.

Re: 89 Targa Brumby

Front cases are the same as EJ gear, as are the torque specs for the rear cases. You need to remove the 4wd engagement/selector gear at the back of the box to proceed forwards - it’s a bit of a mind puzzle with the decent balls and “pills” to get it all out and back in. EJ boxes are much easier to w...

Re: 89 Targa Brumby

Very nice mate. The stock drive shafts will slip straight onto that gearbox ;)

Re: I'm after thoughts on adding our new family bus to...

Yeah Subyroo, I’ve seen that recall. It effects the Gen2 Pajeros. There’s a movement building to have Mitsubishi replace the airbag. Apparently that’s what’s happening in Japan. One guy had an issue where his vehicle wasn’t effected but the replacement airbag he had installed cane from a vehicle tha...

So I picked up a little item in the post late last year. https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/922/KLy2x3.jpg Paint inspired by Subarino - even though he's too busy to be on a crappy old forum I can still drop his name in here! https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/800x600q90/922/UVbrIS.jpg The...

I'm after thoughts on adding our new family bus to...

my rest section!

It's an MY05 plated NP Pajero Diesel, so not a subaru.

But it's getting some attention and I'm happy to share what I've done/doing.

So throw us a yay or nay below please!

Regards

Re: Sister's Gen3 Liberty "Basil"

Basil's rims are now changed over to a set of stock 17 inch factory subaru rims. I think they're Gen4 liberty rims, but I'm not 100% sure - they came from a Gen1 that 1WD-Foz was wrecking. Reason for the swap was that the ones in previous pics have cracked - big time! My sister sent me a video of a ...

Re: "Yak" the SG Forester

Well paint them RED to be different. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Actually, that's not such a silly idea! No movement on the Foz since my last post, just haven't got back into it to sort out the painting of the inlet manifold - I decided I need to do it otherwise I'll kick myself if I don't. Once that's...

Re: "Yak" the SG Forester

Hehehe... yeah, yellow - my MIL’s favourite colour it turns out! She doesn’t know that I’ve done the paint work yet. Inlet manifold will be painted. It’s 90% stripped and I have a new paint can waiting for the weather to “get better” for painting. Can’t complain about rain with all these fires aroun...

Re: "Yak" the SG Forester

Yesterday it really started coming together. With the heat on Friday I didn’t make it to the shed, even after dinner I was done so nothing achieved. It’s amazing how quickly progress happens once all the technical stuff and cleaning is done! https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img921/1318/eNucVi.jpg The...

Re: "Yak" the SG Forester

Finally some visual development in this build! Yesterday the heads FINALLY went on. The hold up was valve lapping, cleaning and reassembly between wrapping up work for 2019, family and the silly season! Plus the heat at times. http://imageshack.com/a/img922/6346/92yuct.jpg ^ new water pump, oil pump...
