    Yeah the column switch. It has a slightly different housing and arm. You could do an accessory lighted tip switch too.

    I was digging through parts today. I didn’t see the dome light you were talking about. Did it come with the car? Or seperately? It may be packed away with new parts.

    Also, noticed that we need to locate a 3 wire semaphore switch.

    We could all roll out at midnight, camp on random city corners, then meet back at the rockshop at sunrise.

    Fully disassembled spindles. Link pins and king pins where both in great shape. Simple clean and paint job here. Prepping for a big ol’ blast session later.

    Right!

    I beat that kid up and steal his bike for sure. Throw away the 1984 k-mart BMX frame and have a nice set of wheels to build a dragster out of.

    Probably worried about their “tourist industry”

    If X number of vw vans are going to camp out,  times 2 or 3 occupants = Y hotel rooms and restaurants that are not making money.

    Yeah Roger does have everything. I’ve been talking with him on the phone for more than 10 years. Probably the best place to buy any vw part.

    Right to assemble.

    Rusty has a no hop kit that he got with a transaxle a few weeks ago.

    The sportster I had used some thick plates to adapt to the reduction boxes. It handled terrible. Acceleration would lift the rear suspension. Bad deal for spirited driving.

    Also, from the little I know about sportsters. Is that most of them were home built from plans, so there are many variations of material and construction techniques. I think empi provided a couple hard to make parts like the nose and windshield frame.

    The one I had was fully welded on a 57 pan.

    Supposedly empi had some turn-key cars that they sold too. I think those are super rare. Like only a handful.

    I couldn’t find a SHO bulbholder anywhere, so I made one.
