    Thanks Pat!  I built it back in 2014 for the 50th anniversary of the Meyers Manx.  I did most of it myself,  but had some great friends n family help me getter done! Paint was done by my buddy Jeff Peterson, a master of ‘glass n paint!   House of Color Rootbeer candy metalflake, medium flakes – they are actually plastic now so makes them stay suspended in the clear better when shooting…

    Had a blast today….great weather….and had my free beer!…Tomorrow looks a little rainy as a front comes through….

    Night was OK…..storm came on about 4am….had some wind, no big deal…..then it started raining…and kept raining….and kept raining….storm went right over us, thought we’d get a break in the eye, but the damn thing picked up moisture off of the warm Gulf and swung it around on us….it’s STILL raining now….we did get a few breaks, but flooded as hell – big mess.  Pump running in the back yard for over 4 hrs now….if it would stop raining we might make some progress…

    Well hope you had a better week than that!

    Looking forward to sunny days in Sunny the ’66 Sunroof!

    Taking off tomorrow to get things going for the Jam….Enjoy the weekend!

    Hey D!  Looking forward to meet ya at the Jam next year….I go every year – good time!  Hopefully I’ll be there this Sunday (Of course I usually do the parade cruise to the downtown car show on Sat afternoon…the first few in line get a free beer coupon n I’m ALL about free beer!!)

    Yeah, don’t have to go crazy on the trans, semi-flat black rattle can is OK….lol!  But I’m happy with whatever you guys decide….

    Yup…here’s my girl, minus the long black hair and red pumps!  Some Beach, Somewhere!

    Trans looks good.  Did they use my case? (Not that it matters…just curious)  You guys paint them semi flat black and polish out the ribs?

    No prob JJ, been watching the single cab….looking great…..keep going!

    I’ve been distracted again….this time by a girl named Nicole!  (And too bad it’s not the one I know with the black hair and red pumps!)  2 hits in just a few months is a bit much….this one may be a little more than the last one for us….coming right by…stay tuned…

    Was going to take off the next few days to be ready for Bug Jam….have some cleaning to do on the Buggy and have to check the brake fluid on the Zwitter…..I’m thinking they will still do the show….

    Crap!  Well, I guess now I need a beer – no pickin on JJ!  I guess we wait for Berg?  Don’t forget the nut & washer.  Maybe order the shifter too?  Was trying to get a 40% reduced with the fingergrip handle, if they still make ’em…..would go with an 11′ shifter….that would be a GB6730 and ADD-6710MN for the fingergrip handle….I’m not in a rush, but don’t want to leave er in your way in the shop….

    Do we also need any linkage for the carbs?

    Thanks!  I like my old buddy…. he’s been a good friend….

    I didn’t think about the carbs on the tar board sides.. maybe just use it on the back….I remember the upholstered engine bays…we did a lot of weird stuff in the late 70s/early 80s…lol!

    Yeah, I think we put the tar board in….

    I was thinking maybe black hammerite for the fan shroud… finish is so easy to clean!!

    Engine would look good with a Berg stock size Equalizer pulley n nut on there too!

    Holy COW!  Fell asleep on ya for a few days and WOW!  Looks incredible!  I DO love the WW pan halves, they are GREAT!!!!

    That pan is lookin’ SWEET!!!  Thanks for all the attention to the clutch tube….no fun if that wasn’t tagged good…

    OK, lemme get caught up with answers to questions;

    – No gauges/dash mods.

    – Kafer Bar?   Naaaa, I’m more of a cruiser than a racer…

    – Let’s do Matt Black 60% gloss on the pan along with the front beam and rear axles and shiny gloss black parts for trailing arms, backing plates, etc.

    Do you guys like to run SS flex brake lines?

    Was working on ‘Ole Croaker, getting him ready for Bug Jam 2022…..that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!  Oh…attached are a few pics….fuel pump was leaking….bummer….It’s got the wrong rear apron, (I’ve got the right “H” one to put in), original Azure Blue (rustallic) paint for the most part on the body shell…lol!
