So this came up – viewtopic.php?f=16&t=6260
And I thought I had to have it.

Picked it up last Saturday and drove it home on a trade plate.


History is Importer (Verban) to VIC, then back to SA, then to me – all years uncomplied, just like mine :)

Plan to comply and register ASAP (allowing for Civic rego to be used enough).
Then start back on other one with this one helping me find how it goes back together :D
Body is a bit rougher then my other one, also has slighty larger rust holes in the same area as other one had – but I shall ignore it till registered this time :P.

Found the correct steering wheel for the car on eBay – described as a Subaru item lol


Big Block Baby

Finally found a engine, thanks to WallyWorld
I’d taken the original F5B apart and looked like it needed new bearings / rings which would have cost way too much.


Found a NOS (New Old Stock) front combination light on Yahoo Auctions Japan one late night, quick email to Jesse Streeter and eventually won.

Delivered to me for about $100AUD, instead of $240 New
