damn proud of my kiddo’s… Happy to build it for him!!!! 😉 Glad I can.. 😉 😉John JonesKeymasterDecember 13, 2017 at 8:33 pmPost count: 6326
More progress…. were getting there daily!!!! 😉 I got Pedals sorted. The clutch hook was about to break… Glad we pulled em…. I welded it all back up and ground it down, also drilled for the safety wire treatment. I know you don’t like roller pedals much…. so I found a bus pedal and modified it to work… It will be slick. 😉 Also rounded up matching headlight buckets and rings and cleaned things up for assy tomorrow. 😉 Peet got the back of the car done… New tar board kit in, new engine bay seals, repaired all your wiring, soldered every joint.. New boots, and brakes and lines and starter and shocks etc etc etc..
and a pile of bumpers parts to sort and make work..John JonesKeymasterDecember 13, 2017 at 8:35 pmPost count: 6326
I guess I should check the clutch tube huh…. everything else in the clutch mechanic’s was broke or missing or both… 🙄 🙄 🙄RustabusParticipantDecember 13, 2017 at 9:20 pmPost count: 1843
Yup! Cut the tunnel and weld up supports!!! This is a TON of work for a patina Bug but it’s gonna be super easy in the future to troubleshoot any problems that might pop up knowing it was Completely gone through!!!!!!!!!! 😀ZackKeymasterDecember 13, 2017 at 10:56 pmPost count: 114
Every day I check this thread I get exponentially more excited about this car! The engine, disc brakes and shocks look SICK!!!!! Super happy you remembered I don’t like roller pedals as much as normal ones too!
The patina looks that much cooler with the nice parts sitting under it 😉John JonesKeymasterDecember 14, 2017 at 8:33 amPost count: 6326
Glad to hear that Zack…. You can see how the customers feel now… 😉 😉 Think about that when we go to change things… i built the website for the customers… 🙂 But as you can see…. it is also my window of communication…. Myface book… 😉John JonesKeymasterDecember 14, 2017 at 8:40 amPost count: 6326

while I am on the subject.. My goal.. with the forums and updates.. is for customers to be checking in on their stuff all the time, like they might miss something if they didn’t check 4-10 times a day!!! 🙂 😀 I would assume.. that is what everyone is reaching for in their social media platforms… for people to be constantly checking in….John JonesKeymasterDecember 14, 2017 at 2:19 pmPost count: 6326
lights are all redone and 12V 😉 all bulb holders were bead blasted, all threads chased with a die… ready for install, new hardware gaskets etc.. 😉John JonesKeymasterDecember 15, 2017 at 7:59 amPost count: 6326
front end is in, New everything. going to be a tight driver! 😉John JonesKeymasterDecember 15, 2017 at 8:01 amPost count: 6326
This is such an awesome project. To be honest it gives me hope that a nice build, daily driver can be built without a full blown restoration. It’s amazing. I’m jealous Zack
well see how much time we put into this when it’s done… But for sure,.. You don’t have to do a full on resto to enjoy your VW.. 😉John JonesKeymasterDecember 15, 2017 at 6:37 pmPost count: 6326
On the ground for the first time with it’s new shoes. Looks perfect! 😉 😉 😉 Doug should be here in the morning to do the headliner.. Then I will get some glass back in it..JdawgParticipantDecember 15, 2017 at 6:40 pmPost count: 447
