Working on a survivor 65 Fontana grey beetle today. Broken clutch fork spring, slipping og clutch, rusted muffler, and a bunch of other stuff. I just finished power washing the former grease-ball transaxle for the second time.
Perfect zero dent original pan half’s on this one.
Installed new motor mounts, clutch fork spring, and input shaft seal. Noticed the bumper mounts were almost non-existent. Called the owner Eric and asked if he wanted to do them while the engine was out. He agreed. So I took the fenders off to prep for some dirty shop rust repair work. Next week.
Also ordered a new tar board kit. I accidentally damaged the original while I was power washing.
The original axle boots are holding. So I left them alone.
