Yup.. Pat moved things forward this weekend!!
can’t wait to see this rig on Pats trailer on the way to a BOR race!!! Which race is your first planned race? Debut Race??Pat KParticipantJanuary 2, 2023 at 6:45 amPost count: 2933
^^^ As soon as BOR drops the 2023 schedule I’ll know. Should be the Vernal Dinosaur Dash in early May if they keep close to last years dates.
Riley came in and helped get front end panels finished. Thanks bud!
Rear light bar mount welded in.
Ebrake base tacked in place. Fabed a new mount for the main power switch also.
And started on the first template for the elec. box. Good weekend!

Ive been looking for a 094 trans. Local guy called asking if we were interested in a vanagon trans because he did a 6 speed subui conversion in his ‘84. Said he didn’t want to deal with putting it on The Samba. Hahaha.
Weddle side to front shift conversion mech arrived yesterday. This allows the shift rod to stay in the tunnel and no cable shifter required.
We will build it if it comes.volksaddictParticipantJanuary 16, 2023 at 5:42 amPost count: 921
Good score on the tranny! and good timing for you. Didn’t even know they had side shift irs bus, That’s going to be a cool setup with the weddle part.
Awesome build Pat!! Lots of work and thinking in your car.John JonesModeratorJanuary 16, 2023 at 9:15 amPost count: 12232
It’s all coming together… Franz and Pat are building their own race cars after getting a few mouthfuls of practice on others people’s rigs.. They know you have to dot every I and cross every single T you have… racing is tough on everything.. 😎 The more time you can spend prepping, the better!!!mac4saleuaeParticipantJune 10, 2023 at 2:22 amPost count: 1
