a few little pieces to paint….. freshly blasted….. step by step…unkParticipantAugust 21, 2018 at 3:42 pmPost count: 370
Thanks John. Probably most of those tidbits should be Shetland Gray. I would think getting the hood latch and hood release zinc-coated would be good. (To make it look original).
Up to ur judgement tho. Thanks a lot.
Did u get Pete’s engine sent back so it can go in my vert??? Haha. That engine is awesome. Take care. Nice job.FranzKeymasterAugust 21, 2018 at 6:13 pmPost count: 2791
Inspection covers are usually black…but I do know convertibles had some things under the hood painted over/all at once. Do think they were body color originally?
The hood mech and striker on early cars gets painted in black sealer. Those big shaft hood strikers are hard to find!
Sorry for the lack of progress this week. I should be able to get back at it soon.omr_007ParticipantAugust 21, 2018 at 8:17 pmPost count: 8

I think this is calling for a baby tractor motor… 1914cc.. dual 36 dells… Heat and fairly regular looking.. Should be nice for a beetle… 😎 Break in cruise to Wisconsin? Man.. the pictures and video we could shoot on the way… 😎FranzKeymasterAugust 22, 2018 at 8:00 amPost count: 2791
Stale air 40hp tin on a 1914cc
Would look similar to 36hp and still have heat.
Silver fan shroud? All black?
CB Performance has a brand new Fram oil filter kit that we could fit?unkParticipantAugust 22, 2018 at 8:07 amPost count: 370
