Rounded up all the bits for pedal and cable install.
Cleaning out all the tubes before they go in.
What trim insert color would you like to go with Tom? Black?
Sealing wax red?
They also offer titan red and velvet green.
We will build it if it comes.Pat KParticipantDecember 14, 2022 at 8:19 amPost count: 2933
Good progress yesterday. Finished off what could be done on the underside.
Cleaned out all of the cable tubes.
Ran all of the fresh cables.
Installed pedals, linkages, mechs, seals, and a horn.
Last couple shiny bits. Bling!
And some topside bits also. Wipers made it home.
Had to fab a door wedge screw spacer since they are not avail.

TOM!! Where ya at man??!
Bolted on a few more bits yesterday.
Started on front door window assy yesterday. Nobody has Sigla glass felts avail. so I modified Sekurit felt to work.
Trimmed out the center vertical section of the lower felt.
Cut down the trimmed out section to a 1/4” wide and to length if the latch plate.
Glued that to the lower felt creating a slightly wider channel for the windows lower slider to fit into.
Also glued felt along the bottom of the stationary window for the slider window to glide along.
Finished pass side yesterday.
Driver side this morning.

Bus is looking really nice! I’m sorta leaning towards the black myself. Didn’t think black would look good but seeing it …John JonesModeratorDecember 16, 2022 at 5:42 amPost count: 13384

Oh man it’s looking so PURDY! I’m having a hard time with the trim filler color choice. Definitely not black. I like the blue, and I really like the turquoise, and then there’s the red, which is what I thought was original, but that seems to be open for debate… We need a vote!
I found this on The Samba… wonder which red that is?Von_hanselParticipantDecember 16, 2022 at 1:39 pmPost count: 62
The Red insert makes the Turquoise paint pop!
You can’t go wrong with red or turquoiseColeBModeratorDecember 18, 2022 at 8:39 amPost count: 2632
mechanicals are coming along nice! Long block finished. I ran into an issue with a set of rings while checking their gap. Found a couple rings with HUGE gaps. Almost like they were from another set? Weird. But got another set in the mail and now it’s all together.
moved onto the transaxle for a bit so this thing can be a roller. Got everything cleaned up and laid out. A couple shift forks were broken in Tom’s core but I found NOS ones in Germany this summer and now this core should turn into a happy little gearbox.
