Default Rally steering wheel

I am planning on buying a 1988 subaru gl10 turbo wagon and turning it into a rally car. One of the things i want to get is a rally style steering wheel with the big grip. Another thing i would like to do is move the e-brake from next to me to near the steering wheel. Does anyone have any sugestions?

Ummmm the E-brake is on the FRONT wheels... yanking it just takes away your steering, it doesnt drag the arse like most cars

Good luck with the steering wheel part. Grant doesn't make an adapter for the late 80's Subarus (though they do for the 80-84 Subarus ) and Momo DOES but no one seems to have the things. For my 86 RX, I bought a stock 85 GL wheel off eBay, hacked it apart, and made an adapter for my Pilot steering wheel (sold at AutoZone and uses the Grant bolt pattern).

One good thing about the Grant, Pilot and Autotechnica wheels is they come with the 5-bolt to 3-bolt adapter so they can use the older "3-bolt-style" grant hub adapters. The reason this is good is that the 3-bolt pattern is much smaller in diameter than the 5-bolt pattern making it much easier to mate with the parts from the stock wheel (which aren't large enough to take the 5-bolt pattern (or Momo/Sparco/OMP's 6-bolt pattern)).

when I had a 1986 GL Turbo I found the onlt 2 hub adapters left in the country at Nopi.com

I bought one, I don't know if they still have the other one.

putting the e-brake on the rear end is still in the planning stages... a member by the name of DrRX on the USMB has been toying with the idea of making a rear e-brake, but nothing final has come of it yet. All GL series cars had front e-brakes as did the XT6 so parts from an impreza or legacy or some other car would somehow have to be incorprated which wouldnt be easy...

But it COULD be done.... if you know what you are doing and have time and money
