    Haha. That high roof only took one bus to make….Rusty has parts for like 4 busses in his.

    …and Rusty, the driveway is looking nice. You could probably park 3 or 4 more cars in there?!?

    Yeah engine re-work. Fuel cell? Lights for sure. Tires maybe. Some aluminum wheels too. We’re a Mobelwagen dealer now.

    Yeah Its been fun to work around and keep clean. White wool. Haha.

    Thinking we can probably cut the seat frame down to be correct. Wish I would have noticed earlier.

    I found some used tires 225/55/16 rear and 205/50 front. They pretty good, but I think we should go with 215/55 and 185/55.

    She looks nice 👍 I think the front could be a hair narrower. The 185/55 tires should help.

    Front calipers cleaned up. A little damage to the anodizing on this one from wheel cleaner or something. It’ll work for mock-up and we can decide how to detail later.

    Porsche 930 cv joint boots + flanges arrived from Kartek. I put them together with moly grease and installed.

    Ready to put on the ground. I’m going to check out tires tomorrow.

    Yeah, the transaxle case is in need of a bit of paint detail. Usually just some rattle can paint. But we could do gloss urethane with the axle tubes and stuff. Polish the ribs too for extra credit points!

    Assembling the front suspension today. 2” narrowed puma beam w/needle bearings, and narrowed original torsion springs to match.

    The front brake calipers are taking a bit of work to get clean.

    Glenn and I had a phone call with Michael Bream from EVwest last week. Michael said he just got some JP3 LG chem super cells that are pairs wired in parallel.

    They are easier for us to install/wire together this way.

    I think we should pull the trigger on them.

    Ball joints and bushings installed on the front end of beetle1. No more shimmies. Drives great. I did an alignment too.

    I could tell the shift rod bushing was out by a rattle and loose gears selection on the test drive. I installed a new one and now it’s ready to go home.

    Very minimal driving in the bus since I need to get Magazine pics of the underside before it’s too dirty.

    Huh? 😁
