    Looking Great, John… I’am excited for this one to finally come home.  Just a few more weeks.

    John, I’m thinking of bring the 56 PGSG out when I come get the BD.

    On the 56 I’d like y’all to completely service it from front to back.  No complete resto, its to original for that.  Maybe rebuild and clean up the front end, motor and transmission, brakes and etc…Make it road worthy.

    I found a sloppy as all fuck pitman arm.. so I added two shims and tightened  er up good.. this baby is going to be all tight again!

    Gonna tear apart the pod and see if I can fix the ignition in this rig…  Then mount some seats down..

    Kelly… I think the best plan on your interior panels is to wait and get Clara to make you a kit thats like original..  I don’t want to mess around and waste time figuring it out and it not even be right…    So maybe I can be done with this rig this weekend… 😎

    Greg Nobel and I decided earlier that there are no known examples of a headliner in a BD Uber Kombi panel kit (unlike 55+ kits). VW likely didn’t provide the headliner panels due to the complex shape of the cab roof.

    I’d say rip out that crap that Doug glued in and call it good.

    I agree!!!!   😎  Got the ignition apart…. Broken plastic piece that couples the contact and the key…  Must have had a “bad” spot.. and got forced.. 8-(

    I might be able to find one… fingers crossed..

    Hope to get this window back in today also!!!  Small goals, with big results today!!!!  😎
