Well I came to work today at 3:30 pm. I found this thread and started in never seeing it before on NASIOC. Its now 10:30 and I just finished. Was kinda upset not getting to see the car completed. Even having to wait a little longer to see it complete will just mean more great nights at work. Lol.
Kosta you have done one of the nicest jobs on a car I have ever seen. Way to pick a cool car too!! I will be waiting to see this sweet little baby on the road.

Nice updates! I wondered about the glass, glad to see that just a little bit of elbow grease is all that is really needed.

Can't wait until this thing is done. Wish I could go for a ride in it!

Kosta, my only worry with that is you leave the front lower sheet metal sooooo vulnerable.
Does yours have the two rubber bumpers on it? Take them off and clean it up like this one.

Not too concerned about vulnerability, I don't exactly run into things, and probably wont drive it too much anyhow.

The front and rear bumpers are toast for the most part, don't plan on re-using them at all.

I was more concerned about road debris. T-bars and a clear bra could work I guess.
Are there any other common old school bumpers out there that would fit? Maybe trimmed down 240z or 510 bumpers? Just throwing out ideas here

No idea, haven't started looking much into that. I saw some of those T-bars on a VW and never saw them before, peaked my curiosity.

You could do the nerff bars but you would have to finish the body where the bumper is notched in. I think it would look good in the front but can not imagine the rear. I would just have the bumper rebuilt and painted same body color or re-chromed.

Wow I just read all that and I was hoping it would be complete by now since it started a while ago! Come on! I want the ending to this movie!

Looks great by the way. Wish I had room for a project like this.

The T-Bars would be a lighter way to go for sure. Would also offer almost as much protection as the stock bumper. Even the stock bumper can't stop all damage so I say just go for the lighter T-Bar's. Would be a lot easier to fabricate.

Since it's a Subaru, you could technically get away with a monstrous metal cage covering the front, but I like those t bars a lot more.

While the Grant looks nice, as would a Nardi, my vote is 'no'. I think you should try restoring the OEM wheel - it's actually pretty simple! Here is a DIY how-to.

Thanks for dropping the struts off today, by the way. I was back on the road in about an hour.

The OEM wheel is going in the garbage, LOL! I hate the thing. Plus it won't match the style of seat and seatbelts going in the car.

(its not going in the garbage, but Its not going back on the car for sure)

I agree. It's fine for a stop gap measure, but not a permanent fix.

Is that steering wheel an aftermarket piece from that era? If not, I vote no and try to find another one from the same time period.
