    All A1 headers, All Painter’s engines.

    Panda bug random project. The owner brought it in to lower/style it up job. We told them to address the engine problems first. And there were plenty. Leaking oil cooler, smoked clutch, cracked intake boots. misc jank. The funny thing is this car came from another local VW shop.

    We got all of Emilee’s 79 engine parts today also.

    Currently the 23 window and the ultimate vanagon are on the lift. Pat is removing dead wires and unused connectors from the harness.

    55-57 OG deluxe trim rings arrived. I’m going to tap some dents out.

    The 55 deluxe has been getting the treatment. I’ve done most everything on the bottom side that I could see or feel. Time to address the paint and interior.

    Checked every bolt/nut I could get a wrench on.

    Installed brake line mounts and axle lock plates(all of which were loose).

    Detailed the torsion covers and spring plates(had paint over-spray).

    Re-sealed the backing plate/axle.

    torqued heads

    adjusted valves

    greased beam

    new choke cable

    new accelerator cable, linkage, and return spring

    Replaced heater tube wrap and hose clamps with correct foil/glass and twist/cotter pin straps.

    New german type battery ground strap.

    Little stuff. Spent forever tapping little dings out of these OG trim rings, two rings dated 3/55 and two rings dated 2/56. They look nice.

    I’m having problems with the driver door. The hinge welds/rivets are loose, so the door is sagging/hitting. I’m about to pull it off to do some welding.
