Car is up and running, but with a note. Big oil leak and motor noise prompted Dirtjunkie to stop by. After a little run time we determined #3 cylinder had a rod knock.

With that said it is time for a rebuild. Project will be on hold for a short time.

I was soooooo close to being done. Updates when available.

Project is back on track. Have new 1600dp with 8:5 to 1 compression, full flowed etc . . . ready to put in.

I did upgrade to the doghouse cooler so I am in the process of modifying and painting the new shroud before assembly.

I think this car is possessed! Everything together and ready to go and not the engine will not turn. Something not right when I put it in. Will have to pull it out and see what the problem is.

It is a Charlie Brown day!

Progress made. Oil pump bolts were too long. When I tightened down the aluminum crank pulley it locked the engine. A little filing and it spun freely. Finally! Tomorrow it is game on!

A friend got the chance at grabbing all the used aluminum signage that was going to be discarded and passed along a few for me to use in fabrication.

Needed a footrest for the passenger side of the car and this was the perfect ticket.

Old sign before and after.




A little drilling and bending and I had a footrest.



Drill a few holes and install. I think it will work nicely.



Seats are going in tonight!

After having a fellow VW enthusiast look at my car, he noticed my rear brake lines were too high. So this weekend I re-bent all the brake line for the rear trailing arms. Engine should go in this week.

Got new motor back and installed this morning. Started up on the first try. I will need to do a few other little things before the rear cage goes on and final assembly begins.

I will keep the updates coming as I progress. Thanks to everyone who helped get the car this far along.



Just waiting for they new rear limiting straps an it is off to the desert to do some testing.
