Had it on the ramp and stripped down yesterday , getting the diff cradle , link arms and hubs bead blasted and powder coated , and rebuilding the hubs with new bearings , rebuild and paint the drive shafts , and paint the diff , will give the floor and inner arch's painted before re-fitting everything .

Got my new brakes just about finished , just need to decide on coilovers and get them ordered up











Cheers Ian

If it was me, I'd keep it 'Works' i.e. the std 'black stars' version.

You miss her (but not the upkeep costs), right?

My RA was picked up last week , new owner was over the moon with it , it's a cracking car

Cheers Ian

I missed this.

So, you've now sold the white RA...?!

I thought that was also going to be a project car... I thought the original intention was that you were going to restore her to near-'concours' OEM.

I bought the RA first to use as a sunny day car , it is in very good original condition already , I was never going to do much to it , just drive it , but then bought the 2 door , which I was going to tidy up underneath , and sell on , but as you know that soon changed lol.

I'd of loved to have also kept the RA , even stored it away in a bubble for a while , but just bought a plot of land to build a house , so have to sell some toys , the RA being one of them .

So just keeping the type R now

Got most of the parts underneath bead blasted today , the larger parts don't fit in my blasting cabinet so will get someone else to do them





Will get the bolts off to be plated this week , and will powder coat the arms in house

Looks a great looking Type R

Ian can you recommend anyone in South Wales to seam weld and build a cage for a 106?

Had quite a few people PM me on various forums asking , the quarters didn't survive coming off as they were more concerned about the rest of the car and not damaging that , so the quarters were cut up in situ and taken off in bits

Byron who did the car owns the 6R4 , and bought a load of fifteen52 wheels for it , and put some wheels in the arch to take pics , he was telling me to get a set but they don't work for me , not that big on the design , or white wheels .

















These are wheels I have bought for it , finishing off the WRC look , speedline replica's made under licence , very nice wheels , and looks perfect to me , the wheel was just put in the arch , I need to make spacers to fill the arch now , the wheels are only available in an ET48 , the wheels on my old WRC car were ET10 I think , so will make up some hubcentric spacers to fill the arch's perfectly.
Need to decide on a coilover kit as it will need dropping 50-60mm , so on the search for something that isn't too hard for road use , it won't be going on the track , so want something firm , but comfy and not rattle my teeth out !







I'm going to order new window surrounds , and the gutter trim , just so it looks perfect outside , I'm undecided what to do with the seats now , I'll fit the originals in and see what it looks like with the red on them , but I may go for later blue STi seats , we'll see .

That's about it for now

Cheers Ian


The car looks fantastic Ian.

Ian,

That RA is just to die for, the TYPE R is going to be on another level too.

Hi Ian, can I ask where you sourced that RA from? From the pictures it looked amazing. I am looking for one at the moment but a good one is hard to find. I was under the impression it was a keeper aswell and was half tempted to pm you and see if you would sell it, dammit!
What kind of money was in it? I understand if you don't want to share that info. Also if anyone knows another RA in good condition then please pm me.
Lovely work on the Type R

Sorry missed this message , I actually bought the RA off someone on here , seen it advertised and bought it about 2 hours after the advert went up , collected it from London the following weekend , it's probably the nicest original Subaru I have ever seen , which is why I bought it.

I sold it for £9k , which seeing whats about it was cheap !

Very rare to find one exactly as it came out of the factory , even had the flare in place !

Did a bit of work to my car the other week , put some paint on the underneath , just need to fix a couple of captive nuts that broke off for the rear cross member then I'm just about ready to put it back together.







Just took advantage of the offer of Meister R coilovers as well
