    Franz has changed more oil and more valve cover gaskets than the average guy  😎 😎 😎  Valves… shit.. he could do em in his sleep!!  😎

    I can’t believe how nice this baja still is… blows me away!!!  A true pavement pounding baja right there… Not one scratch on the bottom side!!!

    David Cusato drove away in the chestnut brown 60 yesterday. Fully dialed in…Just needs some more overspray removal and buffing to be 100%

    Jim’s celebration is on the 18th of next month at the Lincoln park car show.

    Working on a really nice karmann ghia these last couple of days. All new fuel hoses, filler neck and vents. New fuel pump, plugs, plug wires, and a rebuilt Bosch 009…..got it to run well.

    I noticed today that the rear brake e-brake bar was installed backwards, and the axle nuts were not tight…worn splines resulting. I did a brake job and assembled/adjusted the rear brakes correctly. Along with checking all nuts/bolt on the chassis.

    I went on a test drive, yup, brakes are great, engine feels good, but the steering sucks….back at the shop it looks like the steering box is worn past adjustment. Taken apart and ready for the new Empi unit that needed adjusted and painted first.

    See this draft tube boot? It’s hard as a rock and not letting the crankcase vent. This is the oil leak problem.
