Finished shots on next page
I've wanted bags for one of my cars for a long time, and i decided that now is the time to start it.
Ordered the rear kit and management kit from AAC, thanks to Kevin, awesome of him to deal with all my questions and help me out with everything. I ordered it all on yesterday and it came today with normal ground shipping
(good thing i didnt pay the extra for quicker shipping
)
now for some pictures


a preview of things to come (different wheels)

project name

A B3 Syncro on air?

and a wagon http://****************.com/smile/emlove.gif at that
first issue im going to see when i start fabbing the rears up.
the bracket that came with the kit is too big to fit into the bracket on the arm:

its the same size as the bracket on the car...so my idea is to get a set of struts that are not rusted like mine (damn canadian and CT roads
) and cut the lower mount off, and weld that to the tubing for the air strut

that way ill have the stock mount on the bottom and it'll work tits

Re: Project Stout (autocross16vrocco)

yeah the spare tire well is huge, and that little space on the right where the compressor is going is for the rear wiper fluid pump, but since i dont have a rear wiper, thats history

Re: Project Stout (Chet Ubetcha)

Sweet! Yeah, I was thinking about this when I read your 1st post, the rear bottom shock attachment is a different dimension on the syncros, maybe it's Mk1 specs, I forget...
I'll be doing bags on my syncro too... wish I had a spare tire well the size of yours!
A pancake tank won't even fit completely in mine...
