Lightbulb

While we search for an engine solution, a few baby steps being made.

OEM steering wheel (refreshed/restored) is back in the car




I dug all of the OE door card skins out of the bags they were stored in.
I handed them off to be repaired/restored. *eeek*
First one (of course it is the best one!) is back from minor surgery

The others will not look quite this good. Most of them have tears needing to be patched and glued but I think I will stay the course and refresh them. OE skins have a very clean look to them.




And finally... I purchased some mesh vintage stonegards - I refinished them in black - and am test fitting them - they're not permanent just yet! I think I like the look! thoughts?



now back to the engine work

Keep an eye on your inbox, I may have to issue a tool point infraction for all the headaches your employer caused me on my VW Westfailure


Seriously, who the **** does a complete wiring harness using all white wires?








Edit: Jamie, the stone guards look great! Just make sure that the either the wires or the intersecting points are level. Just me being O.C.D.

Yay!!


a little news... I should have the door cards in tonight
3 out of 4 are in and looking good so far!

Seat mounting fabrication should be done by now. why do fabricators make you chase them down?

soon as summer fades I will have more time to dedicate to the project (aka ... the engine)

I promise more updates to come and soon!

Not sure if you need a parts car or not, but here's one in Tennessee:

It may be too good for a parts car.

thanks for the link!
that poor thing is T O A S T

SO MUCH rust (look at the holes everywhere!)
I'd believe it's nothing but a parts car at this point.
Sadly, it's been FS for the past 10 months at the same price

Excited to follow the process!

What one?
If they aren't sure if they can fix it call Bearing Services (503-222-1366) ask for Brian.
They work on some really oddball stuff, when I read that Kostomojen was concerned about rebuilding the motor with the floating cylinders I wished I could have gone back in time to tell him about this place. When I walked in their door to have my motor built they were assembling some old odd floating cylindered 1 out of like 15 block. Basically if the parts don't exist I have been told to talk to them. Its at least worth the trip in to see some of the machines they use there.

On a side note, so happy this car is out this direction and literally right down the street from me. Hope to see it running around one of these days.

Exactly the problem I'm having right now.

It seems...."NOBODY" can fix an aluminum block apparently.
Those "guys that did that work" have mostly retired and / or shut down.

I appreciate the lead and will likely be giving them a ring.
Have talked to just about every service in my area with no luck thus far.

frustrated, but I won't give up.
