    I don’t know 🤷‍♂️, must be part of the magic. I ignored it and moved forward.

    😂 Ohh Herbie…

    People love Herbie!! Pretty iconic… I still think it sounds pretty fun to make a Herbie Class 11 Car for my mom and I to race!! 🏁

    Herbie rides again! The 1835cc is pretty snappy. Ready to go tomorrow after I fix the passenger door handle and driver’s window regulator.

    Working on some 36 lower cylinder tin for Pete’s ghia. He’s going with a sebring style header or something.

    I’m deleting the heater outlets and flaps.

    Awesome, thanks Franz!  I’ve reached out to A-1 for their version of the Sebring…they’re slammed, so it’ll be October at the earliest.  I’m in no rush at all.

    Ready to sand blast and paint. I’ll wait and do them with some other black paint session another day.

    Crandon?!?! Shit! How about 2022?

    I need to work on Chad’s 67 dormoblie, Kelly’s 55 vert, and Dan’d 65 Tesla swap.

    This year has been crazy with drive-in VW repairs.

    Chip’s refresh is getting refreshed. Engine is running good, but getting on the low side of compression as measured on a leak-down test. Plus,  chip has put a ton miles on it. We’re going to send the log block 1776cc to painters in Denver for a rebuild.

    Definitely ready for a cleaning. That’s a battery plastic cap off of a side terminal

    Power washed, oil drained, and pallet-ized for Painter’s Grinding to do their thing – rebuild/machine.

    *Mechanics always like clean parts…and the boys at Painter’s like notes.😊

    Glad the refresh is getting a refresh. Hopefully this bus will be able to chase the KCW crew, and the Ottingers, around for another ten years.

    Hey Franz… tell John that with all the greasy pressure washing you guys are doing lately, you need a hot water pressure washer. I know a guy. 😉

    We decided to tear into the reduction boxes. It needs new bearing for sure. I also wanted to take the axles out to inspect the spade ends for wear at the fulcrum/side gear. ….remember this bus has done multiple Moab trips. The axles looked good, but the side gear on the passenger side is cracked. The fulcrum plates have some wear too. So we will want to replace the side gear and all four fulcrum plates.

    Can you see the roller retainer is touching the inner race? Has not failed yet. Probably not good to reuse.

    Also notice a leak on the backside of the box at the plug.
