Glad the car went to a good home. What was the unidentifiable engine noise?

AC compressor bearing squealing a bit. I have the old AC compressor from my engine swap. No issue really.

Car is in very good shape. A rare color, and bugeyes are classics.

Nothing Dent Dude can't handle on the body. I even have a buddy I used to race with that does windshields. Gonna do A tune up, for sure. Happy to have another Subie in the driveway.

Should get your buddy to hookup Tribal as well. If anyone needs his windshield replaced it's him haha.

Grats on purchase. Seemed like it could have been a headache, very awesome it ended up being minor work needed.

Time to hit up sonny for some new headlights! ;-)

I like the way you're thinking.

Nice car! Does need brighter headlights, though. We'll figure something out before winter.
