Thanks for coming to the bbq! It was cool to meet your Family.
Assembly starts today. Rigged up a torsion tooth brush to clean the inner teeth this morning.
We will build it if it comes.FranzParticipantMay 3, 2021 at 2:13 pmPost count: 5403

It was nice to see everyone at the BBQ Saturday. Excited to watch everything come together.Pat KParticipantMay 4, 2021 at 5:31 amPost count: 2933
After cleaning out the torsion housing center, I lubed the torsion bar splines with anti-seize, slipped them in, along with new bushings, spring plates and torsion caps.
New ebrake cables and cable tube seal installed.
Mocked up a trans with the new front mount, fit, burned in, and painted.
The rear brake line t mount is the most frustrating nut n bolt to install on any early car.
Rear end is ready for the trans once it’s back from rebuild.

Got an early start today and finished fabing the missing front brake line mount. Ready to burn it in. Front end assembly up next.
We will build it if it comes.VwfoolParticipantMay 4, 2021 at 6:21 amPost count: 931
You guys are making some great progress on this car.Pat KParticipantMay 4, 2021 at 2:54 pmPost count: 2933
Finished cleaning the pan head area and laid down a protective rattle can coat.
Brake lines back in place.
Cleaned the steering box and lots of hardware.
Bolted the beam in. Pulled the lower torsion arms and flipped the springs to make sure we don’t have a saggy front end. Upper arms and spring flip in the morning.
Wheels are ready for tires.

Disassemble the steering box due to a leaky seal. Nothing available locally. Added to the parts list.
Flipped the upper torsion springs and bolted all the bits I could back together on the front end.
Tested, bolted in, and wired up the noise maker. Fresh horn grills installed.
You supplied 3 options for a wiper switch. OG on the left is all used up. Middle is for a bus. Let’s not talk about the other one. Added to the list.
Had to start a new list for the unobtanium turn signal switch repairs.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KParticipantMay 5, 2021 at 9:19 pmPost count: 2933
Wait there’s more….started on some interior work.

Great work! I figured you wouldn’t like my Western Implement tractor switch substitute…in my defense, I think WW was out at the time.Pat KParticipantMay 6, 2021 at 7:19 pmPost count: 2933
Focused on interior work today.
Seam sealed around the rear parcel tray where the old sealer had crusted away.
Laid down insulation.
Followed by the carpet. I dig the blue color!
Rockers wrapped, tunnel and rear rubber mats in.
Mounted rear seat belts, clipped in quarter panels, bolted in the rear seat back, and popped in the base.
Turning out killer!!!
We will build it if it comes.
