Subaru Shuffle

Yeah, I make silly decisions. 

I found a 1976 Subaru 1600 wagon on Facebook Marketplace. It's very similar to the Sedan I used to have, except a wagon and has a true 4WD (not all wheel drive) engageable system. 

These are very rare to find, so I rounded up a mate and a cruiser and headed to the far south coast of NSW to pick it up.

Hired a trailer in Melbourne to drag it back - but got an unregistered vehicle permit to allow it to drive onto the Spirit and from there back to my place. 

Now I need to decide what to do with it :)

Project Dacey 9 - The Chassis Returns

Well the good news is that I am back at work full time now. The business is still suffering but it's good to be back at it.

The bad news is that between work and being able to catch up with my family and friends again, I haven't done as much on the project recently.

The chassis finally got cleaned up and sent away for blasting and powdercoating. It's back now. I've also got my springs restored at a local springwork and started collecting bits and pieces ready to start reassembling.

I'm still on partial stand-down at work (working 5 days a fortnight) which means I've still had time to play in the shed.

Since removing the body from Dacey a couple of weeks ago, I have gotten stuck into the remaining elements. By the end of this (surprisingly long) video I have her stripped down to a bare chassis ready for painting.

As Australia comes out of lockdown and we are able to gather in small groups again - my family gathered at my place and we lifted the body from Dacey and stuck it on an old trailer that I can use as a dolly.

The term "Saucer Separation" is a Star Trek reference.

A couple more pointless videos of me pulling my G60 apart.

With the worldwide craziness at the moment, I am only working half time, which has given me a chance to make some progress on the Patrol. In these videos I get her ready to remove the body.

Part 5 - Windscreen and Door Removal



Part 6 - Prep for Body Removal
