    Gulf colorway  is played out….But I do think some white gumballs are in order.

    I agree Cole, lightening bolts definitely add horsepower.  😆

    Thinking about baja/race inspired paint jobs. Anybody have race paint schemes that they like?

    I just got a orange 73 baja…it needs a little flair.

    I hear that its more acceptable to drive like an asshole if your car looks race.  😀

    Pat painted a bunch of chassis parts last night. You are officially in the clean shop. We’ll have the mechanicals ready to install the day the bus is painted. Fully assembled and ready to drive in a week of two from paint completion….that is not far away. February?

    Spent yesterday testing and fixing various inop electrical.

    The horn needed disassemble cleaned and adjusted, the horn brush had paint isolating the electrical connection, the horn button is missing a spring to ground out the contact plate to the shaft, The interior light had the wrong bulb, The dash pod had bad connection, and dirty contacts for the wipers/light.

    I also got a date code of “A” from the seller of the moon coil mentioned earlier. That would make it a 1945. Probably the most correct coil available at this time. I bought it.

    We got a prototype power steering pump bracket and figured out that it fits a 06 tribeca pump.  I ordered a mkiv tdi fuel filter assembly, and subaru euro5 glow plugs yesterday…I got a second set of plugs for spares, because its going to be impossible to find replacement parts for this engine without ordering them from europe. About ready to fit the engine to the van. Maybe next week while Cole is here.

    It cost twice that to build originally. The owner is OVER the vw scene. Super nice solid car detailed to the max. It is 60k nice…but hard to justify for a 1970 model year.

    I disassembled the 47 engine further to find the exact cause of the oil leak. The oil cooler seals looked good. So I cleaned and leak tested the cooler. Found a crack at the top. Maybe I can get lucky and solder it? I have a era correct used oil cooler on the way.
