Well. its quite often that I talk about my liberty with fond memories. For those on a budget it is an awesome basis for a daily driven street car with enough poke/handling/braking to make commuting enjoyable.
Its been over a year since mine drove me to tears and after doing 2 motors within 3 months I called it quits. For the last year Ive been slumming around in bunkies.. what Ive called my punishment phase.
However, the itch for performance is still burning bright, and tonight I've taken the plunge.
Ill paste some of the add.
Now the car has a blown motor, and the kid doesnt want to fix it.
Basically the car's a 91 Heritage with an RS turbo conversion, the engines fucked, the gearbox is from a 97 WRX i believe and thats doing OK, its got 4 pots, 02 STi rims, decent stereo, 05 STi steats front and rear amongst a whole host of other bits
And as you can see, the paint on the roofs fuxxed, the boots not much better
We have come to an arrangement, and he keeps the seats and rims, and I get a regoed, complete, uncrashed, and modified Liberty to play with again. The price and me knowing the complete history of the car are what have prompted the move.
It wont be seeing the road until about mid year.
16 in WRX rims to clear the 4 pots -no need for showy rims, smaller rubber is cheaper and smaller rolling diameter = faster
V5 Sti seats.. had them in mine, best stock seat Ive ever sat in. So shall repeat.
Obviously it needs a motor ... thinking JDM EJ20R from a legacy so you get forged bottom end... though im not keen on gay twins. Not sure really yet.. tons of options but nothing megabucks.
Roof/boot/bonnet respray in black for the current drifter two tonne panda hotness.
Coilovers, so i can drop it and improve handling/bruise kidneys
Asides from that, its already got-
fmic (top mounts or for men who enjoy top mounting other men) ,exhaust, td05, bosch 040.. and thats about all it will have for now. Ill keep it milder to enure it doesnt end up breaking like the other one!
This one already has strut braces and h brace, so ive got mine as spares. This one has aircon, central locking, sunroof, stereo, electric windows.. not sure how I feel about that as mine was the total oppisite as I searched to minimize weight. Seeing as how it most likely wont be an out and out street.. err circuit racer, i dare say it will stay. Finally, it has a mega cool i know tj sticker on the back... long story
Wish me luck!!
