    OG beam stiffeners just because… Mated to a CB 2″ beam.

    I had to massage this RHD pedal assembly quite a bit. The clutch hook was a crude “fab” job by a previous owner. Fixed that using the available LHD pedal shaft upgrade kit… slice, dice & weld. Also the clutch arm was flimsy s fuck! I could literally twist it in my hand.. So I sacrificed a rusted out frozen LHD pedal assembly for its clutch arm and welded it back to back to the RHD cultch arm to box it in nicely. I did this mod with the pedals in my Notchback and it just feels super solid. Same with the Lokar pedal pads. I like em. They look cool…

    Pan assembly soon!

     

    Why isn’t there more member build threads here like there use to be? Does KCW need a dedicated forum for “Members Builds” like the old site had? I know Instagram and FB have taken over for guys showing their build progress. I do the same thing on IG, but with a forum at least you can show your build exclusively and not have it watered down with pictures of food and your cats!

    MAKE BUILD FORUMS GREAT AGAIN!

    This project is finally turning the corner for me!! Pan assy is just about done and the body and removables are now blasted and in epoxy prime. Fresh metal is on its way from Wolfsburg West… both lower A pillars, right side heater channel bottom plate and an entire new package tray from body-to-pan bolts to top of firewall.

    Zach with VSR Mobile Sandblasting came out with his rig. Solid dude.. he has a sick Subaru 2.5 turbo 63 ragtop bug.

    Its really surprisingly not bad!! I’ve never seen ALL four inner quarters on a car be this straight. Pretty amazing after 60 years and it was never tapped.

    Heres the worst of it.

    Pan assembly is fun. Like Franz says… it’s a model kit. Until you get halted because you’re missing one little part or you got the wrong outer tie rod ends or forgot to order the Wilwood brass brake line adaptors… oops. The pan is now further along than these pics show. Waiting on stupid shit like the brass brake line adaptors and bolt in valve stems in order to male it a finished roller.

    Space is limited at the shop so I’m on outside assembly status…

    ~25mm Sway Away torsions, 99-03 TDI factory hi-torque starter, old school chrome stock spring plates, Type 3 rear backing plates/drums, ISP billet rear hubs, CB 2″ beam & drum drop spindles, EMPI Wilwood adaptor, heavily reworked RHD pedal assembly…

    OG kamax bolts with fresh zinc because I hate myself…

    Polished ends, short race axles. Unknown brand; used.. could be Sway Away(?)

    Had to press in longer studs to accommodate the Space Saver wheels. These are CB two piece billet front rotors. Did the same for the rear ISP billet steel hubs (see first pic).

    Looking great! Blasting always reviles the nasty stuff.

    I’m not jealous of your full resto though…that is a lot of hard work.

    Thanks Franz..

    like I said.. I hate myself, so I put myself in these “must do” situations. Oh well. It’ll be fun when it’s done.

    I agree!

    But people don’t post because they are intimidated. The real amateur has moved on or keeps his stuff private.  Not everyone has big money, shop, time or talent so they never post.  Never stopped me.

    I know there is douchebags on every forum, and one negative comment always pisses on my cereal, but it doesn’t bother me.  I’m not comparing my work to anyone else.

    Hey, if someone wants to throw down, I can code a mean program.  Can’t compare random skill sets.  I hope other guys post up.
