Thank you. I have to run a new clutch cable tube front to back, this one fell out. CrapVwfoolParticipantApril 22, 2020 at 9:33 pmPost count: 273VwfoolParticipantApril 22, 2020 at 9:12 pmPost count: 273
Those bastards were rusted pretty good on the spring plate. Ended up heating the splines by the nose cone and was able to break them loose.
Next question……where do you guys cut into the tunnel to reinforce the clutch cable tube?

I have a new project in the works, hopefully I can build it quick so I can enjoy it this summer. I took this in on partial trade towards my crazy 80’s baja.
A guy from work offered to fix the fiberglass issues and paint it for a very reasonable price. So I dropped the body off last night. The pan that was under this body was beyond repair with a badly torn up frame head. I had another shortened pan lying around so I am starting with that.
I have a problem however. In all my years of playing with VWs I have never had one where I couldn’t get the rear torsion bars or spring plates off. Anyone got a suggestion what to do? I started to use heat on the spring plate end with no luck.VwfoolParticipantApril 4, 2020 at 12:18 pmPost count: 273
If it doesn’t sell soon then possibly. I am in the process of building an all terrain buggy. Actually hauling the body to a coworkers house for some fiberglass work tonight. Disassembled it a couple days ago. Keep up the work and pictures. I need the motivation.

Well another 5 months have passed and I am finally able to put some time into my double door again.
I have two questions for y’all. I am working on rebuilding the fresh air box seals and such. On the flappers that direct the air to the sides or out the back what kind of glue do you use for putting on the new rubber?
The other question is anybody know what the correct thread size is for the screws that go into the bulb holder on a bus bullet turn signal that hold the outer housing? One of mine the threads are jacked up. I have new screws coming from wolfsburg west but there web site doesn’t tell you what size they are.
I am also looking for a single drivers side outer bullet turn signal housing. I don’t care if it’s rusty or painted or whatever. Looking for something that will work. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call me at 602-616-3083 I have PayPal and will pay for it with shipping
