    Going to be lots of fun. And it’s going to suck. In all the good ways haha. Hopefully with the motor and trans done it’ll go smooth.

    Definitely intimidating at first. I’m still learning a lot. This is my first vw gear box. I’ve just done 644, 741 and 901 Porsche transmissions. But so far I can see all the similarities. Just a few different procedures.

     

    luckily the synchros are available rusty:) no jb weld this time! Haha

    Conestoga Wagon style. Pretty straight forward to build. Never made one for a car, but did build a couple for old ranch horse drawn wagons and one on the back of a POC pickup.
