Well, I've done a little I guess, finally got my rear fenders all finished up (tail lights and license light done to), need to get the beading in there and finish up some other things. Hopefully have my motor back soon.

Yes sir for the most part, not a show winner at all but should be a nice driver which is my goal. Perfect cars are nice to stare at but no fun to drive.

I guess this is "work" Smile - freshened up the front Fuchs; they've taken more of a beating than the rears...maybe the crabbed-out spokes make the wheel more exposed to stuff blowing by? :-k I dunno, anyway I went w/ this rattle can epoxy gloss black; clean, mask, scuff and spray.

fuch's look nice Pete! =D> I will be moving my 65 out of the number 1 hole to make room for the split this week. It looks to finally be warmed up here and time to show Ruben some love. The dream right now is to try and get him to Drag nights. It will depend on how my funds hold up for the next couple of months. [-o< [-o< [-o< I will update my thread as things develop further.

Lovin this. I would love to find a clean SC, or anything really. Great to see what you're doing with it.

Thanks!
Have you guys got these VW industrial engines laying around?
This was a 1200 1957, fire pump. Normally with just a few hours on the meter, practically NOS. People buy them, strip them for the engine, and put them into their cars. Vw or Porsche (356 type). This one cost 500 NOK, or 60 USD!

Holy crap! That's a smoking deal. Find that in the states and it would be thousands from the flippers.

Those kinds of things do show up time to time, but yes....usually big $$$$ to get them. ](*,)

The 60USD deal was a score. Normally they are in the 400-800 range.

Very nice. I assume that is a water pump. Strange to see a Deutz logo on it as they manufacture diesel engines.

Nice workshop too! It looks comfortable.
