    This rig is coming along fast ! I need to make a trip down to GJ and check it out before it gets all buttoned up again and loaded on the transporter. Wish I could make that trip so I could provide hands on support instead of just cheering ya on from the internet sidelines….but it’s the best I can do.

    We’re still tooling away. Fuel cell going in, and steering shaft bearing mod. Pat installed the new filler/flap valve, so that we can take the hose and filler out of the window(score Baja 1000 stuff).  And check out the pedal adjustment that needs some love.

    The air condition bearing bolts up perfect to the VW mounting location. Drilled and pinned steering coupler minus the rag joint and some hardware = light weight. I noticed the box is loose and needs more shims between the pitman arm and housing too.

    Yeah it’s been fun, tons of little things. Engine is ready to go in. Just finished the main seal and carb base mod to remove the 30pict adaptor. Going to fire it up in the morning and think about what to do with all the f’d up body parts.

    C22FD6A7-F5FF-4933-A5D3-BC10E322426A6FCA3549-D53C-4BE4-94A3-5C5FD848CBDB0DADDEEA-F34C-4CD8-82E7-222881333D9B197FE7C6-71F9-4B97-8952-817096C37C95
    Pedals/cables all greased and adjusted. I had to make a pedal stop as it didn’t have anything. Also, the roller pedal wasn’t making full travel, so the carburetor wasn’t going to wide open throttle.
