    Back on this one today. Spun and milled a e-brake cable pivot pin that was missing. D86B36D2-D133-40E5-9206-3D8A92D4CB6C3245E84C-D195-440E-8D1C-894BAF3711892AED4B01-9EE6-4AA5-AE8C-C4BDBA259F3BB2B0CC22-4C24-4326-8371-47F4DA5395D3F5183460-B349-43C6-950A-9D1677BE11DB

     

     

    Had to make a pair of e-brake cable extenders to make the small nut non-split  trans e-brake cables work. All bolt in now, no mods required when cables need replacing.9AA10CC2-29A2-470D-B79F-00518859731B8A6CEB38-BAFF-44C7-91B4-88B1773EFC76112F6938-32B7-4F66-A037-DEE6424A94A6

    Franz installed the late model beetle dual master cylinder were running and bent up the last couple hard lines as well. FEDC0684-90C0-4546-966A-D5773FC5FFE6

     

    We will build it if it comes.

    Nice work on the E-brake pivot.  Lathes and mills are cool tools. I like puttering on shit like that.

    Running into a few missing parts.

    Lever shocks. Do you guys know anybody who may have spares? We can get them rebuilt at Apple Hydralics in NY. Eveything for sale on samba is in Europe.

    Heater knob is a special piece. Kai has one listed on samba. Should we get it?

    I have some late 52 -early 53 zwitter lower shock mounts. We could make 1/4” plate uppers to adapt telescoping shocks?

    Yeah. We need them. I’ll get a hold of Johnny.

    How about the heater knob? If I don’t hear from you guys this morning, I’m going to buy the one Kai has.

    Working on the seat base this morning. Replacing/fixing broken springs. AEA56C45-A3B4-4914-ADCA-267A79B713BF04460CF4-F13E-427A-A904-3E857108E7D0A339665F-0181-48C2-A03C-5F699351F190

     

    All of the wire supports that tie the spring together were broken.B6479A4D-2CAD-4450-8064-47BDF793E6BF631F3587-710E-4F7F-9D6B-2DA88A0CB379

    This pile of bits should be 24 spring supports. EEC52DFA-7AF5-4E09-BD0B-EAFB3E999293

    Started on new ones.  Four down twenty to go.BD664787-9954-413C-8E2B-52C2F8E313E5

    Fourteen bends to make each one. 90644B84-FD84-4B3A-A718-EA153DC6812E1F3CFCB4-9C31-4618-AE4B-C2E1877216D53656B2B2-A33F-43AC-A95C-C0AEA5C1E9CECB31FF7B-86DE-4465-A717-97B3A08DAFCBCDB7A926-7F4E-4717-9CB8-4CAF7A26A7F869B053FF-ADDC-49AC-BCEE-221335787D6A16DFD33D-C828-4D01-B94D-206D2DE656A70F5FFF09-DAD7-43E1-A4FA-11F7F6662F297399AB13-D0CC-43AC-BDAB-483C67A6A6FDC3DB9152-482C-41DE-B71D-0CD03E3EA524F1B70FB4-ED82-42A6-8EA6-DD41BCDEA3FB58FA5291-0A73-4ABE-AB73-6550D9B98E933D491852-258C-46AC-800E-71C5231F14E49AF01AE2-1FBA-464B-8B2D-9460C11C9982

    Dude.. that seat… That was insane tedious crazy time consuming work..  Pat had blisters on both hands!!!   But damn he fucking nailed that seat frame.. it is primo now.. 😎    I can’t think of a more worthy seat to spend some time on… The oldest truck on the planet’s seat…. 😎  😎

    Sound like we have lever shocks on the way, but they will have to come here, then head straight to New York to be rebuilt… He also bought a correct heater knob from Germany I think….  Split window beetle style…  😎

    So I don’t see any test drives in the near future…. 8-(

    Running into roadblocks on everything I touch. I had to order a bunch of parts.

    Wiper grommets from Belgium

    headlight dimmer switch from Michigan

    7mm fuel petcock from Denver

    Lever shocks from Johnny Main in Canada…. He’s sending them to Apple Hydraulics to get rebuilt for us. Not really a hold-up as we can install them anytime.

    Bumper going on today.

     

     

    I assembled the 52 and earlier steering column…Its a beetle unit on these piano hinge barndoors…soo cool.
