    Thanks Tom. I like to check the book for pictures of how things are supposed to be. I’ve done this job for a while now, but always like references.

    Like John said, I installed the hard lines and bleed the brake system today. The pan only needs the heater cables/controls and pedal assembly now.

    I think you said something about a Gene Berg shifter earlier?

    I welded up a stainless line to convert the dual circuit master to the stock reservoir.

    Pan gasket installed with original-style tacks and glued the seams/corners.

    LOVE how ya made a stainless 2:1 to use the original reservoir…..really SWEET!!!

    I’ll order one. That’ll be a nice piece of jewelry. 👍

    The engine is up next. Make sure the tin fits perfect and then pop it apart for paint. Silver fan shroud and black lowers.

    What are you thinking distributor-wise? Bosch 009 tried + true? Maybe a cast iron Bosch 019 for vintage look? CB Performance magnaspark?

    Here we go. Getting started on headliner padding. 6130040F-0D6E-45C0-BBBA-06E2EC139CD0072EED68-DCB4-4B63-958C-96A09D77B44D5EDE54AB-8C73-4999-8AFA-A321DB989246

    We will build it if it comes.

    Yea Franz, I think the shroud will have a good look with silver n black.  I’m thinking the 019 with Pertronix inside?  If that won’t work out, we could do the 009 with Pertronix….

    Pat – She’s looking good out in the sun!!!!!  The Sea Blue has always been a turn on…lol!

    Wow Pat!  Rear window and DS sail panel looking GREAT!

    Thanks Franz for ordering the shifter and tires!  Yeah, I dig that fingergrip handle, first tried it on my buggy with the shortest shifter they make….great for grabbin’ gears….I think the tire combo is perfect….

    One piece at a time. The 1/2 cylinder tin edge needs to be extended.

    The fan shroud has holes for the thermostat flaps, I like to install the original flaps minus linkage and tack welded open. Cool? Or we can shave the holes?

    Another question, since we’re doing the vintage distributor, maybe a generator/regulator would be more appropriate? Cons would be it’s not as simple or as easy to replace. The regulator is not solid state either. More expensive.
