    Yeah speaking of this truck, I got back on the engine today. Cole is a Porsche guy or something now.

    I installed a fancy fuel pump, and modified a 6volt backing plate for 12 volt. Going for vintage look.

    Original heater boxes with big elements always work the best. Cleaned the insides, straitened dents, welded flanges, and modified the outlets to snake around the Wolfsburg (tube type) transaxle cradle.

    Stacking the engine. I got some zinc plated parts back from the plating shop. Old Bosch logo coil bracket, on a brand new Bosch blue coil. VW logos on the trimmed pulley and cylinder tins.

    I tried buffing some dirt out of the fan shroud and went a little too far. Cut into the sealer, so I sanded and repainted last night. Doh!

    Fit heater boxes to the wolfsburg tube cradle and welded the bends.
