Rounded up a bunch of OG hardware, shock bolts, pan washers and other little bits.
Also a few hard to find parts like the ebrake push rod, pan head insp. cover for early ebrake setup, and an ebrake handle.
Going to get it all sand blasted and painted by tomorrow morning.
We will build it if it comes.Lone StarParticipantMay 5, 2020 at 10:49 amPost count: 217
Great. Can’t wait to see this car come together. Its been along time in the making.Pat KKeymasterMay 6, 2020 at 10:13 amPost count: 1507
^^ Me too. Pan assy. starts tomorrow!
Blasted all of the little bits and hardware. Few bits turned silver, we like flat VHT for the hardware, and some shiny black on the rest.
Trans assembly and install next.

When are we going to start the interior and top color debate? 🙂
JJ and I think a dark green interior would look great with Yukon yellow. Not sure I like the geen top though…
Black top green interior?
Brown top green interior?Scott SainParticipantMay 6, 2020 at 10:40 amPost count: 287
The assembly is my favorite part. Painting the bolts and making stuff nice. I wish I was there. The green top might not be timeless. Black or tan. I don’t think green interior goes with a black top though. Red top and red interior might kill it!Lone StarParticipantMay 6, 2020 at 1:02 pmPost count: 217
Mary and I had talked about Dark Red interior and top. The green sounds interesting, but I’m with Scott that it might not be as cool down the road. I’m going go back and look at a color wheel to see what’s next to and cross from from yellow. Did both pairs of tires show or only one? Also did the Kamax bolts show up?FranzKeymasterMay 6, 2020 at 1:04 pmPost count: 3783
Yes on tires and bolts.
Cool I dig the burgundy top.👍 Like Unke’s convertible had.DarioParticipantMay 6, 2020 at 2:26 pmPost count: 547
I like the Brown top with green interior all day!!!FranzKeymasterMay 6, 2020 at 6:19 pmPost count: 3783
Dark brown canvas top, brown/tan wool headliner, tan squareweave carpet, natural/rich leather seats and door panels
stitched & trimmed like stock.
Grey and charcoal are also options.😁
I like the red /ox blood Porsche stuff.Pat KKeymasterMay 7, 2020 at 9:07 amPost count: 1507
Trans assembled out to backing plates and bearing caps. Brake parts needed before the drums can go on.
Installed trans to pan. Fresh seal for the nose cone, rear brake hard lines bent up and installed along with soft lines.
Having to massage the new torsion bar splines to get them in, shits tight!!!

Mary likes the brown/tan and the grey/charcoal color combinations. So I’m thinking no dark red. That would be the usual combo. But for sure wool headliner, squareweave carpet, maybe use leatherette instead of real leather and seats and panels just like stock.
Now that we may have narrowed color down to two choices, its time to think of the motor. 🙂Lone StarParticipantMay 7, 2020 at 11:37 amPost count: 217

Be different, Kelly! Enough of the Super Beetle engines in early cars! 😀
I really like how Erik’s engine is turning out with the Zeniths:

Terrible ideas! They leak too much oil and cost too much!
