    ^^^ I agree! Great call Tom!

    Anti-rattle bumpers and felts installed.B869B68E-2055-4B2A-ACD2-7416D90E6473BA054039-AEF5-4445-88DD-595BC49ECD11

    Save all of the packaging. Plastic bags opened up work great for vapor barriers.73FBC575-7D55-4548-9F3B-254CA7CB64821BD9B947-B014-42D6-A511-B871FA9B74A2

    Thought we had a new Ivory passenger side armrest in the stash. Turned out to be a left side.5BCB21AC-791C-4F11-8534-721041F3BF20

    Used an OG one for mock up. New one on the parts list.BB158F50-FCBF-4F8E-80EA-EE42E89CF780

    OG handles and escutcheons. First sit cleaned up nicely.5799C3CB-8D0C-486A-935C-310D6CFCB0A4

    Drivers door complete. Passenger side will have to wait for an new arm rest.CDF4152B-9CAB-4E4C-AC83-513FF901A7BF

    Sunroof is next on the list. E866C52A-1B06-458E-A587-11231CAC69A3

    Worst set of sunroof rails I’ve had the pleasure of fixing up.5ACA74D3-0C45-4D13-9128-80565F8D11C0

    Three rounds of sanding, followed by scotch bright to get them back to good.

    Sunroof cable guides were all pissed off. Had to dip them in the parts washer to get the old cables to release.F9918BDC-7CAA-4200-9735-23DD00F6AA10

    Stretched vinyl over the headliner cover panel. 278E6B7D-1D16-4045-A89F-993E86FC787E

    All of the bits and pieces are ready to go for sunroof assembly.73D20A91-37A9-4482-AAC5-EF48732E435A

    We will build it if it comes.

    Totally Blown Away!!!  The attention to detail assembling the doors with anti-rattle like they were when new….it’s almost a shame to cover them up with the vapor barriers (very cool reuse of the bags btw) and the door panels!  Those stock deluxe panels with the trim really make it!  Blue square weave looks right at home in the package tray area…..This is definitely going to be a stand out car wherever I take it…..really, really, outstanding Pat!

    I went back and looked at the sad rig my buddy Mike dropped off and that JJ started to work…hoping it could be what it’s become, but never thinking it could be this SWEET!  Thanks JJ and Franz too for all of your hard work to get us here!!!!

    You only go around 1 time, make it epic!

    Super stoked you’re super stoked Tom!!!

    Today was all about your sunroof. All moving parts lubed with dry molly for super awesome slickness.C5B1EECE-A96C-4240-B4A7-97BDD61425E7

    New cables slipped into the guides rails. Bit of foam pad on the bottom side of the rails like VW did it. B008927D-8788-4F64-8554-9BCA9005FFD4

    Sourced a couple parts from the KCW junkyard.945F520B-AB74-452C-9D55-458F0AC2CE41

    Front sunroof adjusters needed a good bit of love to get freed up.776B278C-794D-4D78-9A21-FFE33A0F55763280F8CB-A58B-42F1-A84D-090EB074BD08

    All the bits back together. Sunroof works super awesome!!!2950B717-A3F0-4087-ADC9-C1AFCD1EA4085E04D85E-0FD6-459C-8D07-C93970D1DF242246B17D-A8EB-476C-BF20-930256E7A5F84F4FCA94-4FDF-4079-9583-220BA6BA1998

    Sunroofs and door windows are detail oriented for sure. KCW has all the details spot on for this rig!

    I was doing door windows this week too- bet mine don’t work as good as yours, they lack some of the details and my paint sucks! And It’s not my first pony ride by a long shot.

    Folks, take your shit to KCVW!

    hahah, that was a typo, but I like it 🙂

    I sourced some original lower cylinder tin because they fit the best. A few of the mounting tabs needed repaired.

    EB0E1CE8-4FF2-45A5-AAAD-8E4B841C5184
    And fit the stainless A1 Performance sidewinder to original heater boxes with the aluminum elements inside. The heater should work fantastic in this car.

    Since we’re doing vintage look, I whipped up a 6 volt generator backing plate modified for 12v. The pressing has more style than the flat smooth later style

    “Any glass that moves sucks!“ JJ. Applies to sunroofs as well.

    Double barrel draft tube with the valve cover vent tube, and deleted air filter outlet.

    I like the new Empi beater tube because it’s not full of oil,  and its the 40hp style.
