Re: Lucy 64 beetle

I decided not to strip it. It has had at least two red paint jobs. I'm done. Its a driver. Everything works. Subie swap? Nope. That would put the power to camber ratio way out of spec. http://www.kustomcoachwerks.com/gallery3/var/albums/Type-1/best-friday-ever/P4270262.JPG?m=1493305119

Re: ultimate vanagon

I try to turn away vanagons when they come to KCW. :-$ Usually because they broke down driving through town. ...but this isn't a regular vanagon. We're building the most badass VW off road camper. I can get on board with that. Long frustrating days ahead. I am prepared and welcome the challenge. But...

Re: Parkway Projects "fix Everything"!!!

Somebody left the ignition on in your bus. The battery is totally dead.

I pulled the front brake drums removed the bearings. They look decent. Did you have some noise? Maybe something else.

Re: Dans Boosted Oval Rag

I noticed that some of the undercoating was chipping off. I thought I would give it a quick touch up. I start to prep the edges and sand the bare surfaces for the new undercoating, and notice that the original sealer on the pan half has not ever been sanded #-o Which is why the undercoating was fall...

Re: Moab Volkswagen Caravan!

I'm ready. Stayed up late last night checking electrical and bolting on accessories. This machine has all of 2 miles on it from a 15 year storage.

Re: Lucy 64 beetle

My power to camber ratio is pretty good.

Plus, the suspension won't go much lower. Wink Those 205/70 tires are pretty much rubbing the top.
