    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. 67F87684-C951-466A-8DFC-1C85F7C93A97D77ACD18-6C8A-468B-B447-9435893B4045

    We will build it if it comes.

    ^^ 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. 8BF424B4-947C-4726-864F-D7A33190050AAF5BDE60-5132-4ADC-96E7-A63875C5C8E3744032D3-5D63-430D-92D2-806DBB0A4CD3

    Trans assembly and install next. 5CDD09CC-5E56-4491-9A52-E22397A8844E

    When are we going to start the interior and top color debate? 🙂

    blackbrowngreenredtan

    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?

    I think tan looks super clean.

    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!

    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?

    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. 🙂

    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:

    And there’s my lump:

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

    Oh God….please don’t make not leaking oil part of the criteria.  Pretty sure Kelly probably wants to stick with something ACVW.
