    Back on the rack…. been checking this, hooking that up etc… working on some e brake cables now.. I’m close to something…  Hooked up heater tubes and box controls… but still need the pipe up front that goes over the bean…  wait… maybe we have that somewhere around here…. humm   I am not overly worried about heat in this here Dallas bound Barndoor… 😎  But I think I have the stuff…..

    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!!!!  😎

    well I found a bag of old pod parts. and found two of those plastic things…  both were broke on one side..  but you only need one side ,,, so I put one in and it worked…. Like a charm…. 😎   Got those pain in the arse kick panels back in and took it for a drive!!!!!!  Drives perfect… Brakes perfect, Hauls ass, shit works as it should..

    My glass is here!!!  I am gonna assemble that now!!! and NOT open those windows.. this is number 4 piece of glass I want to say…  I inspected things.. looks like everything is correct and what not… I suspect it could be from people driving it with a safari partially open, or trying to open or shut the window with a wing nut tight…   Just becarefull and treat em like they are fragile, very fragile….  😎  😎

    Window, seats.. drive to Texas!!!!!  😎
