The "I wants" thread

Post by El_Freddo » Mon Feb 17, 2014 9:20 pm

G'day all.

This thread is about the subaru bits/vehicles you want that are up for sale but either can't afford or don't have the time to pick it up by the buyer's time frame or it's in another country...

Currently I'm the former.

Here's the unit I'm looking at - thinking as a future replacement for Ruby Scoo's running gear. Plus it's blue, plus it's a touring wagon - ticks a few boxes...

The link: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/wantirna ... 1036765795

EDIT: The pic:

It's probably gone to the wreckers anyway.

Also, check out this guy - DREAMING! Although I'd love to have this for the brumby. Can't go past AWD once you've got it I reckon!

Cheers

Bennie

That's what I thought. If I had some money to throw around at it I'd offer $500 and tell him to contact me when he's ready to sell at that price... I seriously can't see it going for $1500!

Wouldn't matter if it was in WA.. it's a want with no way of paying :(

The 22B is my dream car but I get worried every time I drive it.. can't afford another one if something happened to this one

Hmmm I'd like a new SJ diesel Forester. Don't see it happening for a fair few years though.

I'd also love more space. A nice huge, well setup workshopor shed and more than a 2 car carport! !!

Really?? Even with all the diesel issues you can read about on the DPF issues thread... and that apparently subaru have said it's not ideal as an urban vehicle?

I'm surprised.

I would love to have these wheels on this vortex,

[img][IMG]http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii99 ... a9d6cf.jpg[/img][/IMG]

I found them from an importer website but they only have two for sale and to get them it costs around $600.00 (inc. postage).

Would love to get my brumby up & running again - however it needs lots of TLC + loads of new parts to get there though ... :(

Future plan is to get me one of these :

Looks good! Not too keen on the bulbar, though.

I actually prefer a non-targa, you know, keep it simple.

Since the thread is called "I want", the Brumby can have the dual headlights and be either white or beige in colour...

Re: The "I wants" thread

Post by El_Freddo » Sat Mar 16, 2019 8:23 pm

Thought I’d revive this thread with a few bits. I’ve done pretty well with getting what I want with Ruby Scoo so far.

And as for that touring wagon in the first post, the guy offered it to me for $300 or something but I turned it down as I’d just got the brumby. Spewing I could take it on - and I swear I saw it in one of the pick a part style yards. The thing was full grandma spec - so clean. I almost cried!! Actually I did on the inside!

My current wants:
- an operational engine for my RS so I can get it on club plates and start enjoying it rather than just looking at it!

- sort the small niggling rust issues in the brumby. Nothing serious, just annoying. Then respray it the same colour as the new XV red ;)

For Ruby Scoo it’s rebuilding the OBX front LSD - try making it tighter (you could/should put time into tidying these up right out of the factory. The kit is about $35 from the states and apparently is pretty simple to do), changing my fifth ratio from the current 0.87 to an 0.83 or 0.81 if either of those are available (I need to do my research). The original 0.78 is too low for what I want and I reckon the EJ22 won’t do so well when on tour while commuting. 5 stud conversion. Just need time!

Oh, and a new to me tradies roof rack would be sweet too.

Cheers

Operational engine? As in for RS turbo?
if so, I know where there's an engine from an imported 93 WRX.
Hasn't been run in almost 10 years I'm guessing though, but sitting in a storage shed unused.

I'm trying to find a few import parts for my touring wagon. cover for a motorised under bumper fog light, rubber cushion for over bumper style fog light.

Yes, for an RS turbo. If I took on that engine it want to be very cheap and very close to me. I’ve got several engines that I’m trying to piece a good engine from - the issue is a current lack of shed time and we’re about to move house, once we secure our next rental...

Hmmm... those parts should be “fun” to source. I hope you find them without too much effort or wallet damage ;)

Yeah mate, we’re pretty much three rentals for three years now!

That’s what happens when you have to move for work, then finally settle, then your pita landlord decides to sell rather than negotiate a few things!

We’ve just found a place on a nice quiet back street. Now to start the packing procedure and move our crap. Hopefully we’ll down size some stuff too (not my shed gear - I’ve got three projects on the go with us :/ )

Tradies rack is now ticked off the list and is on the “to mod” list. I’ll have to drop a pic of it in here later. It’s huge and heavy, so I’ll be putting it on a “diet” :P

Cheers

Interested to see the roof rack Bennie.
I'm keen to sort something bigger out for mine. I have a Rolla one at the moment, which looks great, but I'd like something longer and possibly the "flat" type. I am concerned with weight though - the Rolla one is steel and already pretty damn heavy. Keen to try and figure something out Aluminium in construction. Have to wait for more funds though as I think I'll need to spend some dollars to get something decent looking. I could make something out of a flyscreen door that would be functional, but I do want it to look good too :)
