    Thanks John.   Probably most of those tidbits should be Shetland Gray.   I would think getting the hood latch and hood release zinc-coated would be good. (To make it look original).

    Up to ur judgement tho.  Thanks a lot.

    Did u get Pete’s engine sent back so it can go in my vert???  Haha.  That engine is awesome.     Take care.  Nice job.

    Inspection covers are usually black…but I do know convertibles had some things under the hood painted over/all at once. Do think they were body color originally?

    The hood mech and striker on early cars gets painted in black sealer. Those big shaft hood strikers are hard to find!

    Sorry for the lack of progress this week. I should be able to get back at it soon.

    Ha!  Thanks, but you wouldn’t want it…can’t have that ’58 dated case in an early oval.  The purists would freak.  🙂 🙂 🙂

    I think this is calling for a baby tractor motor… 1914cc.. dual 36 dells…  Heat and fairly regular looking..  Should be nice for a beetle… 😎  Break in cruise to Wisconsin?   Man.. the pictures and video we could shoot on the way… 😎

    Stale air 40hp tin on a 1914cc

    Would look similar to 36hp and still have heat.

    Silver fan shroud? All black?

    CB Performance has a brand new Fram oil filter kit that we could fit?
