    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

    I am thinking anthracite…. I know it means more work for me… but if I’m going to do it, I might as well do it how I want right?

    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.
