    Hi everybody.

    Thought I should properly reintroduce myself and give a little history as to how I’m going to be lucky enough to be back working at KCW.

    Started lurking on KCW forums back around 04′. Moved to GJ from Jax FL in 10′, right around the time Corey form Jax. and Pigpen were working here. I immediately asked JJ if he needed a shop bitch, was laughed at, so I went and bought them all a 6er of their favorite beer.

    Bought parts and popped in occasionally over the next couple years. Kept on lurking on the forums. Piggy decided to part ways with KCW which coincided with my maximum frustration level at my shitty corporate job…..

    My junk…65′ daily for the last 19+ years…..DOIN’ WORK!!!

    IMG_0194

    …..JJ decides to hire this huge harry wookie named Al that had broke down at the shop on his way to Cali, to fill the void in the dirty that Piggy was leaving. This was motivating.

    So I started showing up 3 or so evenings every week and on the weekends with beer wanting to learn some skills which I had none of. After doing this a few months JJ said he wasn’t getting shit done on his personal stuff, Royal Mail bus, because I was getting him sauced up all the time. I agreed to quit if he’d learn me some skills…. So my apprentice ship began…..

    56″ wheelie based buggy I pick up for parts a couple months back.

    IMG_0613

    …..After a few months I was offered a part time job, a couple months after that full time. My last day in corporate hell was 4/20/2016. THAT was a great day to end a corporate job on.

    Over the next three years I worked my ass off and absorbed as much information as I could from John, Franz, Pat Peet and Wookie. Then I unsteadied the foundation of the bridge I had built with John.

    Moved to Denver. Spent the last year and a half working on race cars and dreaming about how great my days at KCW were….

    Buggy beam. Adjusters in spindles rebuilt.

    IMG_0707IMG_0700

    …..Started popping back in to KCW last November over Thanksgiving. Hung out for a week, helped with metal work on Paul’s single. Felt good to do some dirty shoppin’ again. Stopped by to do some work on a beam for my daily driver in Dec I think it was. Had a few good conversations with Jones and started having hopes I could come back to work here.

    I knew JJ was about to take a nice long road trip a few weeks back, SST, and would have time to think, so I popped in and asked if I may please come back to the best job I ever had. The next two weeks were looooooooong…..

    Blasted everything at work. Painted and mostly assembled.

    …… Got a call last Friday with good news.

    See you Monday morning the 26th boss.

    Stay tuned for more pics of my junk…?

    We will build it if it comes.

    in reply to: Fuel Lines #8793

    Is it a bad idea to run hard lines for the whole system like the line in 36ers have from the fuel pump to the carb???

    I did that three or four years ago,  fourth of July weekend, and I vapor locked because fuel was boiling in the hard line  that passed through the backing plate into the engine bay . It also killed the fuel pump, ripped the  diaphragm.

    It was 105 that day  I have had no problems since after going back to og style line  even in hundred degree plus heat

    We will build it if it comes.

    I am wondering what I am missing with the 55. I am surprised no one has purchased that yet. What am I missing?

    “mostly original paint” is what would scare me.

    That means somebody has had their fingers in it.

    I just got my first VW! Probably rushed into buying, but I wanted one, so… ’72 Transporter Deluxe. My Bentley and Complete Idiot books won’t be here until end of month. Anyhow, been reading up a bit and looks like fuel line replacement should be the first project. What type of fuel line do y’all recommend and what type of clamps? It’s 1700cc with two Weber carbs.

    Congrats!!!  Pics?

    Idiot bible and a B manuel.  Your a wise man.

    Good German 7mm fuel line. Wolfsburg West has good stuff. Buy a few extra feet and replace annually.

    No clamps needed with the good  stuff.

     

    We will build it if it comes.
