    Thanks Pat, Franz and John for all the help and knowledge on pulling the transmission this morning, simple and kinda easy minus the smashed thumb. Looking forward to getting this back on the road again. Thanks again.

    ^^^That don’t look like Ron! 🙂

     

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Thanks Franz. One small, slow step at a time but it will get done. Franz also welded up my heater boxes and I rebuilt the carbs. I assume the next step is finishing the engine then I think everything goes back in the bug.

    Fit the header and welded flanges today. Some new empi tin too.

    Yeah, for about 3 hours once a week, Ron runs around here asking what he should do next on his car.

    …The answer is always “Install the parts on the part, and the part on the car.” 🤷‍♂️

    I found some paint and put it on the heater boxes.
