Meh, doesnt matter anyway, i'm going to use the Pug 15's.

I know this is a newbie refurbish question, but I'm fascinated by this project and I LOVE the photos. Where do you get information on how to replace all the foam on the dashboard, etc.? Is it something you've done before? I'm just asking because the bucket of bolts I'm driving has serious dashboard issues (cracked, faded, etc.) and I was just wondering what is involved in fixing something like that.

Many thanks.

I have no clue how to replace the foam in the dash board. I just know its rotted out and the dash is coming completely apart. I do have the original service manual, but other than that this will be my first dash removal.

In the Aircooled VW crowd, we often do "Old Speed", or performance parts from when the car was new. Old Speed wheels and sport seats are especially popular.

I'd love to see an Old Speed Subaru.

The only "performance" parts that even existed for the car back in the day was the 1300 S drivetrain... Which was this same engine, but with more displacement, better cam, and DUAL carbs. Put out like 94hp at 7000rpms.

I'd love to put that engine in this car, but it wasnt sold in the U.S.

Wow! That setup will be killer for such a light car.

Some people just don't understand the whole concept of "frame off" restoration. My quarter panels on my 95 legacy daily driver are beginning to rust but the car still runs, handles, and shifts fine...Should I not waste my time either?

It's a Subaru so it's gonna be rusty...nothing that has not been fixed before. I bet replacing that interior will be easier than it looks. Think about how easy it is to replace a newer suby interior....older is probably even easier because of less parts and electrical work to do.

I was just thinking that a bike motor might be appropriate in this case if you're ok not going the full-restoration route. It's cheap, has readily available parts, and provides flexible fitment while easily meeting the power requirements.
