Custom Bumpers/ Light Bars/ Roof Racks

Post by Legacy294 »

Hi Guys and Gals..

We are getting ready to start fabbing up some custom bumpers, light bars and roof racks for Legacies and Imprezas. These will be built from 1-1.5" DOM Tubing. We can ship them raw for the DIY crew, or powdercoated (many colors to choose from).

What kind of things would you be interested in for your cars? Bolt on only, or would some of you off roaders like a weld on type? Just getting the feelers out for what we should be focusing the most time and energy on.. :D

Looking forward to your input.

With aluminium brackets to mount to the car, or are you going to mount them inside of the fender arches?

I would love to see a bumper that has some nice clean bodylines, but that has a little front lip style to it. Also, how about a bumper built to accomadate a fmic? Possibly some custom pipes for an fmic as well 8)

I'd say a light bar would be nice, been going to fab one up for some time but have no time....... Any first gen Legacy needs more lights.

A third for light bars. Something that would allow you to mount lights relatively high up on the bumper.

I'd also like to see a light bar.

A local shop called Rallyinnovations sells light bars, but they have a tendancy to place the lights close together below the bumper. I decided to skip buying an expensive bar that doesn't put the lights where I want them and make my own mounts.

They vibrate a bit, so I have plans for channel shape mounts that I'll get around to making one of these days, but a reasonably priced bar that puts the lights above the bumper would be nice.

Make some stand offs behind them. I used rubber stoppers, ran screws through them and wind nutted them through the back of the grill. Just move the wing nut in or out to adjust.

Those look like my first attempt at a light bracket, they moved WAY too much...Something like the Blair Witch Project.. :lol:

They need to be mounted on the top and bottom of the beam in a "c" shape to work the best. Drill a hole through the works, large bolt, washers, and nut, you're golden. That was the style we used on the rally car. BUT, thats not a true "light bar", more of a light bracket.

We are talking tube here... :lol:

Personally Id be interested in an early leggy bumper with better ventillation to brakes and that can help in circulating hot air from under the bonnet.

If you guys come up with something it will save me alot of fab work and buying bumpers to hack up ;)

Sorry guys.. have been busy building rally cars, swapping RS>STis and getting ready to move to a bigger shop.. also a pretty special 91 SS swap a couple of months ago.

I'd like Integrated Lights in the radiator grille with a metal or carbon fibre (basically stronger) surround grill where the plastic one use to be. Should protect the radiator against stones, small birds, snakes, turtles, etc from damaging the radiator. My bumper is also beat up and I need a new one, including the rebar. I would like a bumper with fog light holes built into it. Integrate turn signal with fogs as well.

My vehicle is 1990 Subaru Legacy LS AWD sedan.

I have been looking everywhere for custom bumpers and sideskirts. I have seen a purple first gen on the internet with a sick body kit, but the only place I found that makes kits for first gen legacies was aerotech in new zealand and they want 470 for just the front! Let me know what you can do for me and throw me some prices.
