Yes, RS wing looks good and so does the panel and door gaps. Looks to be a very well built Covin :smt012

Mark,
Looks good :smt012 (Bastard! :smt093 ) going for probably the same colour (GMH :smt077 Devil Yellow), only you beat me to it (Bastard! :smt093 ). Just doing my sons ute now in that colour (2-pak), long winded process as it was initially a write off, so lots of body work. Always something jumping in ahead of the jobs you really want to do!
Did you manage to hang onto the MR-930 plates? As if you let them go there is now an annual charge........
Looking forward to some engine pics/details as I've also been setting up to drop a Subi EJ20T or EJ20TT into the Covin, just want to upgrade brakes, Wheels & susspension first (also slowly fitting a C2 update).
I've collected all the bits, its just the time thats been eluding me.

:smt039 SeeYa, :smt039
Rainer

More pics. The Subaru has been in a few weeks now and is going great. As you can see the radiator is behind the motor, had a few say it wouldn't work but it seems fine. Its the radiator out of the subaru with thermo fans that cut in at 85 degrees. It does get a little warm at speed on the highway(100) but cools down when I slow down, runs about 80 around town. As you can see I had to chop the sump about 45mm to give some ground clearance.

Great stuff :smt012
I also found the temperature got higher at speeds with radiator mounted in different locations in the rear and then cooled down as I backed off a bit. It was fine around town though.
I finally cured this problem by fitting the radiator flat in the left hand side of the engine bay and also added a long, thin oil type cooler behind front bumper as part of the cooling system and that cured all temp problems in hot weather. Might be worth you doing the same, because the rad in the rear just doesn't get quite enough airflow on it's own to cope with high speed in hot weather.

Looking good though :smt004 Which Subaru engine have you fitted ?
