Finally finished the oil bath turned breather box! I think it turned out pretty sweet!

Did a little smacking on the rear bumper at end of shift lastnight and cut/formed a couple patches. Of course someone had to torch some beetle exhaust peek holes through it ](*,)

Working through problems and smashing obstacles =D> Wasn't shifting worth a fuck, boiled down to hockey stick dimple being drilled funky and cup on forward rod being worn [-X this rod is out of a 55 up bus and when compared to a factory barndoor one the cup was about 1/8" taller! We built up the top lip with the TIG and profiled it....back in and WOW! This has got to be the nicest feeling early shifter out there! =D>
Got brakes all finalized, juiced up and bled lastnight.......one pump and they rock solid! \:D/ just gotta fiddle fuck with ebrake cables to gain a C hair of length and drums can be torqued on =D>
New throw out bearing went in and motor stuffed back in for good too.

We getting down to wire waiting on others to clean tank and weld wheels up ](*,) with any luck motor should breath first breath this Sunday church session \:D/ =D> \:D/ =D> \:D/ =D>

Damn! Looking mighty fine fellas. Not jealous of thrash sessions. That shit sucks. You guys almost have it licked. =D>

The black rim on the sprints looks cool.

How did the wire harness work? Were the fuse box ends pretty close?
