    Come on Rusty, its not THAT bad is it???

    Really excited to get it more drivable. Honestly, from the day I bought it I always wanted to have KCW make it better but never thought I’d actually get it there. Of course the ultimate would be to have it completly redone but right now I’m more than happy that its parkway status.

    This thread has to be the best! All the build threads are great but to see the drive/walk in service at KCW shows the completeness of the business. It just lets you know KCW is about the VW community no matter the status of you or your VW. 😀

    Excited is an understatement…Some guys dream about full restos and perfect show cars and I love that shit too…but…I’ve always dreamed of seeing my “normal dude” car at KCW for any kind of work…NO SHIT this is a dream come true. Thank you guys for doing what you do.

    To add to this, if anyone is on the site and contemplating if they should bring their car to KCW…do it…It was a big feat for me to get my car there…the wife and I were shot by the time we rolled into town and JJ, Corporate, Franz, Pete and Dario made us feel like we were at home.

    “The KCW experience” is more than just getting a VW tuned up.

    I did my normal rounds on the engine, then went over and tidy’d up a few things.

    • nut-zert on the coil
    • re-routed a few wires and took off any plastic collars on connections
    • swapped faulty electronic ignition for points
    • increased idle jet to 55
    • measure/marked true TDC
    • adjusted advance base line and limit to 11-29 degrees
    • hooked-up and adjusted choke
    • removed the pre-heat flap from the air cleaner

    Welded the spring brace back to the skin and touched up with some anthracite paint.
