    I installed some empi 36 dellorto repops on Mike’s 68. Runs great. I’m stoked on them. Dells work better in a beetle because the idle jets are easily access accessible from the top. No weber windows needed. 😉

    That is still one of my favorite engines. The red white and black just looks right.  The pulley covers are brilliant! You killed it on that one Franz! Glad to see it again.

    I just wanted to thank you guys for the work you did on Justin’s bug. He’s obviously stoked. We look at this site everyday (at work lol) and dream while living through you guys. He got to drive the MF mail bus!!

    I’m glad you guys got to hang for a bit and share some of the things that we do here in Cali (minibikes & R/C).  Someday when I get a bus I’ll be making the trip to see you guys as well.

    Red….. It was a pleasure to work for Justin and Jillian…  I enjoyed the whole experience…   I’m lucky to have great customers…!

    If I lived closer to you two… I would for sure be back into RC… and more than likely flying….

    A couple parkway project. Weston hooked us up with the job on the anthracite 64. Old local car that I used to walk past on my way to school as a kid. Its been visible in the owners backyard next to a high-rise hospital for years. I hate to think how many times they’ve been asked if they wanted to sell it. Hot rod baja that was rattling apart. Fan shroud fins were broken, fan hub was broken, alternator strap was broken, and some other stuff.

    Peet hooked up a Denver Bronco edition super beetle strut rebuild/lowering job. You might see it around town on 8 spokes.

    I think the hard part would be at drawing the line on where to stop. 99% of the cars showing need more than a tune up. Just ignore rest the problems?

    Do something

    We usually advise people on what their car needs. Then make a plan of attack to do repairs. Sometimes we can only fix the one issue. Which is fine too. No need to turn every job into a restoration.

    But generally the more work we do for you, the better of a deal you get. I do enjoy job like Jdawgs – fix everything.

    Here is Jdawgs twin in stock form. 64 antracite. Its a fix everything type of job. The first major issue is the transaxle was leaking in several spots. Easy enough to send out for a rebuild/reseal. After we get the mechanicals back in and 100%, we are doing interior, radio, window rubber, wheel paint, and a buff job. Maybe some bumpers and running boards too.

    The transaxle was a greaseball. I didn’t want to be the guy to send it in like that.
