Nannadan 3rd eye installation
With the help of T'subaru (RIP) I amassed a rather large stash of 3RD eye parts from the USA
Sadly when I sold PJ I decided that I would never use said stash (just call me dumbo) so I sold it all to Sam Jefferies who promptly did this. that is a very sexy wagon Sam
then I bought Nannadan https://imgur.com/a/vIJeK and much regret ensued. I contacted Sam who agreed to sell me what he had not used for a very reasonable price.
A big thanks to Corax for his help with this project, not only keeping me sane but asking questions as well as advising.
As we were pushed for time I didn't get heaps of photos
The fun begins remove everything that is in the way and drill out the front support.
A simple process I was told only a couple of spot welds I was told
6 spot welds all up 2 at the front 2 either side of the hood release and 2 in the front of the top of the radiator support
test fit 3RD eye to make sure when it is open it isn't going to shear through the condenser for the aircon. a big thanks to my hand model
one bolt in place I would suggest rivserts or nyloc nuts as getting a spring washer a nut and a spanner in behind the 3RD eye calls for small hands or much patience
bolted in place note the damage to the radiator support make sure you drill the spot weld out on the right spot
getting there, surrounds in place to make sure the bull bar will go in place. Magic happened here the original round headlights and second hand original surrounds from the USA appear
test fit the grille ... hmmmm do you see what we noticed, I have a solution but we were running short on time so for now on with the show.
remove the obstruction on the bullbar refer to before picture, it had to come off to let the light shine
in place and ready for the final test
the final result
the light has not been wired up yet I had to manually open the cover then wire the light to the battery for long enough to take pictures. hopefully soon it will be but that is a job for Subarino in Perth
thanks to everyone who helped out and a big thanks and remember for T'subaru (miss you bud) who helped me get all of this goodness to Australia
