    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.

    Love me some OG spot welds all lined up like German soldiers! These inner quarters are amazing.

    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.

    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!

     

    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.

    Like what your doing. Takes a lot of hard work to get the level your doing this bug. Does that blaster dude know Andy?

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

    Not sure if he knows Andy. Probably does, he was rattling off a lot of names of guys in the scene around Nor-Cal that he knows. He’s based out of Sacramento, but he’ll go outside the area for a small extra charge.

    cool watching you build something nice… Your right.. I haven’t done any really really nice sedans in many years… I guess, cause once you have traveled in a bus and driven busses… The tiny little sedans seem much less use full… 😎
