MIke since your out of town this week, I will paint and send your hub cap next week, when someone will be home to get it… 😎mdubgParticipantJuly 4, 2019 at 10:45 amPost count: 272
Sounds good! Take your time. Looks like you have a big delivery this weekend. 👍
The good news about having those sweet WagensWest brakes is the DC looks great without caps as well.Pat KKeymasterJuly 4, 2019 at 2:15 pmPost count: 954mdubgParticipantJuly 11, 2019 at 7:48 pmPost count: 272
I took the Double Cab to get Texas state inspection today. No problems, except the guys at the shop couldn’t figure out how to push the seat back (it doesn’t adjust), shift into reverse, and they didn’t know if it was a bus or a truck. Updating the registration tomorrow, then I’ll shoot some pics around here.alykatParticipantJuly 12, 2019 at 8:47 amPost count: 305
Friggen bunch of kids out there now days. Probably grew up with nothing but auto trans and self adjusting heated / cooled seats.mdubgParticipantJuly 12, 2019 at 9:23 amPost count: 272
😆. I’m starting to think the shift lock is unnecessary, as a standard transmission alone is the best theft deterrent for modern thieves.

Haha. Yeah, kind of like the new jetta tv commercial. 🙂mdubgParticipantJuly 12, 2019 at 1:39 pmPost count: 272
Franz…speaking of shifters…Driving around and dialing things in, I realized the bend in the Gene Berg shifter arm is leaning a little to much towards the driver. I gotta move my legs in order to get out of the way for reverse. I’d like to clock the stick at the base, so that it is more in line with the centerline of the truck (ie. the stick bends straight back). Before I open up that shifter to rotate toward the centerline, without a install manual, I just wanted to check if that rotation is do-able or are there any collars or pins that prevent rotation.FranzKeymasterJuly 12, 2019 at 2:24 pmPost count: 2563
Maybe you can get a little side to side adjustment out of the base. Usually I will re-dimple the shift rod under the driver’s seat.mdubgParticipantJuly 18, 2019 at 7:01 pmPost count: 272
Loving the DC and getting a bunch of smiles on the streets (including my own)! I’m still doing some shake down rides around town. Couple questions for you guys. The rear passenger brake hardline is weeping a bit behind the fitting (red arrow in picture). Am I better off just getting a new hardline and replacing the whole piece or is there a quicker fix? Also what brake fluid type is in the system?FranzKeymasterJuly 18, 2019 at 7:03 pmPost count: 2563
I would crank it down tighter to seat it……maybe you already tried that.mdubgParticipantJuly 18, 2019 at 7:18 pmPost count: 272mdubgParticipantJuly 23, 2019 at 8:12 amPost count: 272
I’ve been driving the DC to work, when it’s not 100 degrees (which is only a couple days in the last 2 weeks). Love it!!!!
Next up, I’m working on getting new seat covers, door cards, and material for the roof panels. This might take some time tho. I’m not quite as fast as KCW.
I got the repaired hubcap and t-shirts in the mail yesterday. Thank you!
