Just trying to remove as many scratches as possible Rusty
On that battle, I went a little OCD and took the hood and front fender back down to 2000 grit to try to remove some deeper scratches after already having been finished with the rest of the bug 🙄
The turn signal had been glued into place by a previous owner because the holes were too big. When I took it off Rusty and Will helped fill them in
Nothing like drilling into a fresh paint job 😯GlennmossModeratorApril 12, 2018 at 1:00 amPost count: 306
More than happy to have my daily driver back in action! There have been a lot of small setbacks that ended up taking longer than expected but I had fun cruising over to Balboa Park this afternoon.Scott SainParticipantApril 12, 2018 at 6:49 amPost count: 394

Bout time! What else did you have to do to it?
You need to drop that front end a little bit more.JbParticipantApril 12, 2018 at 10:41 amPost count: 694

I have been having some issues with the engine bogging down under acceleration. When I start it up, the alternator light has been coming on but goes away once I give it a little rev. Also, restarting after some driving requires lots of gas to start the motor. It’s a single port 1600 but think it might be an issue with the centrifugal advance distributor that paradise motorsports replaced the vacuum advance with.
Franz do you have any suggestions on what I could try?John JonesModeratorApril 13, 2018 at 8:33 amPost count: 12232

Cool I’ll try that after this second round of midterms… Did I mention how much I love driving my bug? I get complements on the paint everywhere it goes.WillyModeratorApril 16, 2018 at 10:16 amPost count: 1716
Nice car and great shot! I think thats a Chinese distributor in there from a while back, definitely couldn’t hurt to upgrade it.Pat KParticipantApril 17, 2018 at 2:07 pmPost count: 2933
