It's off to the right side...right side of my shelf again.. I want to just finish this, adding a turbo later isn't a huge deal.

Thanks guys!!! Good seeing some posts!!!

Brown apples suck?


I got gray paint today for the intake, it looks like primer so tomorrow will be round 2 with more of a silver color. Ran my wires for fuel pump and radiator fans. Hooked a battery up, everything seems to test out and work!!! Getting there!!!

Back to busting my balls everyone..

Signed the papers tonight on the shop!!! Woooooo wooooo!! 2 roll up doors/drive through. 3 Windows, and a man door.

Anyways, moved some shit from my garage to the shop. 30 feet walk. I have a donor Subaru Legacy that I pulled in and got the motor unbolted and wires disconnected, I'll yank it tomorrow after I borrow an engine hoist. Going to pull the wires too and try a swap with a stock harness.

The gray paint has kinda grown on me with the square, but not sold on it. Gonna leave it be for now and keep going on it.

Yeah, congrats Andy! Good luck on the new venture. I can envision you coming up with a sort of conversion kit of harnesses, brackets, plumbing etc. for type I, II and III's and knocking these out without each one having to be one-off.

Nice work on your square too. Oh, and I vote black on the motor parts. Smile
Meh.

Congrats on the shop Andy.

On the manifold color, it works with gray, but I think some maroon (body color) stripe work would look killer. \:D/ Then I'd leave the TB natural aluminum.

Were you going to try cruise control with this package? If not I'd lose the extra cable bell crank too. :-k
Let me draw you a fucking picture!

Hell yea that sweet you gotta shop. You got skillz bro mize well use em to your benefit. I have a super bug that needs a Subaru motor it was my brothers car it had a nice 1776 in it. He passed away 3 years ago drinking and driving. After he passed I needed a bigger motor for my bay winder so I jerked it and sent it to painters for a rebuild. It's in my bus now running great. His car sits in a field on my families property. It used to be a show car say the pastor in Pennsylvania my dad bought it from. It has sewfine interior it's sweet. So long story short Andy I am going to save my money and if u wanna pain in you ass let me know I wanba subura motor in this one so my mom can cruise it too

Congrats Andy! Having an actual shop is fucking awesome! I need to get down to Motown to hang out with you and Aaron. The grey looks perfect. Has that understated commercial look... like, "yeah its a Subaru under the lid, no big deal". =D>

Thanks guys, just trying!!! Just trying!! Can't make it happen without trying, I think this shop is gonna be my business for my day job, not Subi junk. That's where I think I want to go, until I'm 100% set up for that I'll do Subi junk.

Anyone can bring their car to me. Justin head down for a day, I'm in Turlock.
