Pats been kickign ass on this rig!!!! The customer is basically having Pat do all the hard crappy prep work for a an easy paint job…. 😎 Now some lucky soul is gonna get an easy paint job…. 😎 😎 oh well… Funny thing…. If the customer left it and said go ahead and paint it for me… we’d have it done inside of two weeks… Now I bet it doesn’t get painted for months or more!!! Cause I am TOO expensive for this particular customer…. 😎 😎

Ball joints and bushings installed on the front end of beetle1. No more shimmies. Drives great. I did an alignment too.
I could tell the shift rod bushing was out by a rattle and loose gears selection on the test drive. I installed a new one and now it’s ready to go home.WAY2COOLParticipantNovember 8, 2022 at 3:20 amPost count: 449

Finished engine assy and ran break in on Rina’s motor on Friday.
Chased a electrical problem for a few. Distributor drive was not engaging enough casing erratic running.
Turned down the housing a bit. Good to go.
New trans mounts while the engine was out.
Fresh tar board.
Just about done with install.

^^^ We’ve only found it on the after market distributors a handful of times.
Finished Rina’s ‘74 yesterday morning. Runs and drives great.
Rina’s is also the original owner of the car.
