    The sound of a Thursday morning!!!!!!

    What! No logs today? ?

    Logs are probably easy on the early part of a project – “sandblasting and rust removal, labor and materials – $xxxx”.   🙂

    I’m bored as I sit here at the hospital while my mother is in surgery, so here’s a recent random photo. Enjoy. 🙂

    I may be mistaken but I think JJ mentioned he had an early sunroof notchback in his stash.

    Ghia’s are too hard to get tires on and off.. and nothing wide will fit…

    Removable rear quarters – that’s nothing a Sawzall and some Dzus fastners can’t remedy.  Piece of cake for John Jones.  😈

    man that’s really cool…you weren’t kidding when you said they were pricey.

    Yeah, that’s why I didn’t bother ordering any to replace the running lights. 🙂

    On the plus side I feel slightly better about drivers behind me seeing brake lights, and should I ever convert to 12v these bulbs will still work.

    Got some 6v LED brake/turn bulbs from http://www.culayer.com.  Flashers work with the same Wolfsburg West 6v flasher relay that powered the filament bulbs.  They’re spendy but worth it.

    Bulb2

    LED/filament comparison:

    LED both sides:

    I like the idea of building junk as a joke. But its hard not to get serious racing. Class 11 baja for the win.

    Yeah, like the drag racing version of the 24 Hours of LeMons.

    I am thinking something like Black Bart…… But maybe an aspirated motor.. ?

    God yes, please do this.  That car was ridiculous.  I can’t remember exactly, but wasn’t it something like 4″ raised and 10″ narrowed?

    Is that drywall mesh tape? ?

    Looks like 1/4″ wire mesh screen. (Really need the head-banging-against-wall emoji)

    This bus is soooo killer.  I know jack about Westies, but is this one supposed to have pinstripes?  I’d guess the early Campingboxes like this would have been an ordinary brown/tan VW built standard and then taken to Westfalia for the Campingbox setup?

    I can not lie.. this weekend makes me want to build another race car… ? ? ? ? I’ve been down that road a few times… and I haven’t been up to the challenge in the past… It would be something fun to do… ?

    I bet Scott Sain would be willing to part with “11:90” for the right deal.
