New Brat Owner in DE

Post by delathere » Sat Apr 19, 2014 8:37 pm

Hey there! I just picked up a '79 Brat on Friday. She's got some flaws but is in overall good shape. Survived the drive from Massachusetts where I bought it back to DE. Anyway, I look forward to searching this site for all sorts of ownership info. If anyone can point me to some good resources for restoration, I'd really appreciate it!

Hey there, where ya at in de? I'm up near Newark (actually in PA). There is a mechanic around here that does nothing but subies. I just had him do some work to my Baja and can vouch for his work. My car has been running great and his prices weren't too bad... Peace!

That's great! I'm in New Castle, right on the border of Newark. I'd definitely appreciate getting pointed in the direction of someone experienced in Subaru restoration work. I want to do a lot of this project with my own sweat and blood, but definitely will have to defer to the experts for some things.

OOh! Did you pick up that Brat from a Boston area craigslist ad? Wondering if it was the one we were all ooh-ing and aah-ing over on the FB page.

Look up "Suba-guru" Tim's auto repair...
http://www.timsautorepair-subaguru.com/

He's straight up Rt 896, prob 45min up from Newark, but before Lancaster. I have no idea if he would know anything about the older Subie models (your Brat), but he is obviously an expert at the contamporary models...

Peace!

Oh....there are lots and lots of Brat/Brumby and Baja FB pages. I'll message you a few via PM tomorrow morning. The eyelids are getting droopy right now!
