Nice work!! Nice to have some one who can get it done on a schedule…. Douglas is getting old and slow at a pace quicker than setter concrete in the summer😏😏😏😏😏

Stretched the rear backrest yesterday. Need to pick up some hardware to finish off the backside.
Back at it this morning.
We will build it if it comes.FranzParticipantNovember 30, 2022 at 3:11 pmPost count: 5386
Antonio has a ISP West new speedometer with trip. Kind of a pain to wire, but I sorted it out. Wired the VDO temps gauge too.
I noticed the brake lever was missing its return spring. Also rusted together. Fixed that, along with an oversized pin for the accelerator linkage pivot.John JonesModeratorNovember 30, 2022 at 3:50 pmPost count: 11223

I started on head re-torque/valve adjust. #3 exhaust valve stem is worn to the keepers. This isn’t going to run much longer. Due to not having lash caps on the stems with ratio rockers.John JonesModeratorDecember 1, 2022 at 5:05 amPost count: 11223

Finished seats up yesterday. Wolfsburg West has it all these days. Fresh panels for seat backs. Nice.
Found the missing trim bits for the rear seat back, out back in the KCW stash. Carpet securing strip.
Upper trim and bumper buffers OG also.
Rear seat base was broken and bent.
Welded and straight as an arrow.
Ready to go.
Almost out of parts. Woo!
We will build it if it comes.FranzParticipantDecember 1, 2022 at 10:31 amPost count: 5386
I got the OK from Antonio to take the heads off of his engine. Found rust pits in all 4 cylinders. So, I took the cylinders off to look inside of the case. Lifters and cam look ok. I retorqued the case studs, and all seems good. I’m going to order a new top end for this 1600cc so we can put it back together next week.Pat KParticipantDecember 1, 2022 at 2:28 pmPost count: 2933
Finished interior install on Eric’s ‘65.

Headliner is tight! Back seat looks like the kids were playing back there lol. They usually do, all that material will settle in.
Nice work Pat!
