    Awesome!  Love the progress.  I say grab a sharpie and have the team sign the back side of the separating panels before you seal it.  That way when I open the smugglers compartment in 20 years, I’ll get a chuckle.  Might be too late tho.

    I stopped by the shop this afternoon to do some misc assembly. Cleaned the throttle cable tube really well and ran the cable with bowden tube, shift couper, nose cone mount, ground strap, steering box and knee knocker installed…found something weird with on the Brazilian steering arm that I tried to transfer to the rebuilt Wolfgang box…it had a larger splined shaft and nut. So we’ll need to locate that piece. I don’t think there is anything steering box wise at kcw.

    Two steps forward…

    I did a quick search on TS last night.

    Does this look right or might this also be a brazilian?  I reached out to the seller last night.  Haven’t heard back yet.

    If you need it I have the one that came off the box in the garage. I’ll ship it up to Franz tomorrow.  Bus looks awesome!

    Bo, to the rescue!  That would be great.  It’ll probably get there quicker from you and you know it’s the right diameter and spline count.

    Let me know what you want for it and shipping at michaelwgreen at yahoo dot com.

    Just one example of why I like the forums… 😎   Thanks Bo!!!

    I think we may be waiting for some parts now.  I guess I could get some wheels sanded and painted… Your missing a grip if hub cap clips too… I’ll fix those first!

    Cleaned up alt. stand and tore down distributor for a inspection and cleaning. Ready to go back together. Parts should be arriving tomorrow. 8B02C74E-C1E3-4346-A899-B65FF298A251515FF9BA-D049-4FB9-9A73-2E075A070BD7

    Mike, do we need to order hub caps? Want to add a bit of chrome or go proper with L345?

    We will build it if it comes.
