    During my last visit to KCW, I had the opportunity to see this car, amazing color, many good details and I thought the owner has to be proud of his RH Oval Vert,  and since it’s being restored by KCW, at the end you will have the Michelangelo of cars…. 🤤🤤🤤

    Pedals are in and functioning perfectly. About to bleed brakes. The pan is done.

    Original hardware though-out. I like the early style tie rod ends with the grease zerks. I reuse them when the cars come with them.    I shortened the original tie rods and converted the long side to take a steering damper.

    Ignition switch with 2 original VW keys arrived and installed. The wiring is done except for dome light switches.

    Fabricated RHD speedo tube. I was lucky enough to locate a split window speedo tube to rob the brackets from….they are the same as oval rhd except for the angle of the bend on the base.

    See the bordeaux red paint on the split speedo tube? Thats an original paint part from John’s bagged split rag circa 2005.

    Just for fun; these are all the generations of steel speedo tubes.
    The green blue and red tubes on the far end are 58-59. See how the base is threaded? The middle two are slightly longer/different bends, these are 53-56 oval window. Notice the square nuts on the base?

    awesome stuff, Franz.   Can’t thank you enough…….

    Also, the RHD wiper assembly looks great.  Hopefully, those little things are saving you some time since they seemed pretty restored already.    The headlight buckets and semas hopefully will go in (went in) with little heart-ache.
