    I have a new project in the works, hopefully I can build it quick so I can enjoy it this summer. I took this in on partial trade towards my crazy 80’s baja. 41FCF79E-8845-4B42-A9AC-6C599BE81B91
    A guy from work offered to fix the fiberglass issues and paint it for a very reasonable price. So I dropped the body off last night. The pan that was under this body was beyond repair with a badly torn up frame head. I had another shortened pan lying around so I am starting with that.

    I have a problem however. In all my years of playing with VWs I have never had one where I couldn’t get the rear torsion bars or spring plates off. Anyone got a suggestion what to do?  I started to use heat on the spring plate end with no luck.

    Probably rusted in there.. brute force and lots of prying and hammering..

    Those bastards were rusted pretty good on the spring plate. Ended up heating the splines by the nose cone and was able to break them loose.

    Next question……where do you guys cut into the tunnel to reinforce the clutch cable tube?
