Started on my quicky engine detailing. I didn't feel like dropping the motor, dissassembling the sheetmetal, and replacing gaskets just to make it look pretty, so I'm just gonna mask it and paint around everything. The rebuild will come later.

I'm using Dupli-color high heat spraypaint. Colors will be semi-gloss black and ford motor blue. my weekend was cut short so I'll add more pics next week.

Again, thanks for all the compliments guys (and gals?), and also to the advice people are giving me, even if it looks like I'm ignoring it. lol

I should be able to finish detailing the engine this weekend, and therefore have more pics for you. I'm also going to work on the wiring a bit, and apply roll-on bedliner inside the trunk/gas tank area as well. I really like the stuff, and it seems to be holding up well on the floor I did earlier. I just have to fill some areas with fiberglass & resin first.

But that all depends on whether or not I finish the engine. I need to finish the paint. And I still need to finish making the bracket for the oil breather, bracket for the license plate and wiring for the light, wire in the oil gauge, replace rubber fuel lines, re-route oil breather lines, and a ton of other little but important stuff, ya'know? Oh, also one of the drains for the sunroof broke off, completly rusted through. Didn't even notice it before, so I'm gonna whip out the fiberglass and resin for that as well.

There's also the not so important stuff, but need because of the R/C theme of the bug. Things like the giant on/off switch & the scale screw heads above the rear window.

It's gonna be a long 3 day weekend.

Just a little update mid 3day weekend. I finished painting the engine and have installed everything back. Not bad for a masking job. It's also amazing how most of the wiring can look new again with just a bit of cleaning. I had a rubber slip on seal for the distributer cap, but couldn't get the damn thing on!! Still need to add the fuel and oil breather lines. Fabbed license plate bracket and wired up light as well.

Front seat frames finally finished! There was some damage to the backrest part of the seats when I started, with broken springs and clips. After those were fixed, I sanded, primed and painted the frames. Most of the seat frame will be covered when upholstered, but the paint will help protect against moisture and rust. Now onto the rear seat frame. I'm on a roll.

Thanks for the links Dutchbug. If you happen to chance upon a subtitled version, let me know. The only words I could understand in the videos were "Sand Scorcher & Tamiya" lol

Got the headlight beauty rings mounted today. Had to make custom brackets to hold them on tight, so they don't rattle and drive me nuts. I bought these off eBay for a couple of bucks, so I saved money there. I can't believe there. Here's several angles to give you an idea why I wanted these instead of the generic buggy headlight rings. I think these fit the 1970's era better.

Okay, so I finally bought some burlap this weekend for the seats. Both front seat halves covered, ready for gluing the foam cushion to.





I went with molded foam, instead of shaping my own. However, I did cut down the bottom of the back rest foam, so I could snap the two flaps together for easy removal in case of having to repair/replace the springs.






I also used the plastic bag method I saw somewhere on this forum, so it's easy to slide the cover down the foam and frame.

Here's the finished driver's side seat. I think it turned out great, considering it was my first time doing this.The passenger side was almost finished, just ran out of snap buttons for the back rest.





Still have to tear down the rear seat, repair and cover with burlap. The burlap material I found at Jo-Ann's fabrics for $2.99 a square yard.

Both seats finished and mounted. I plan to add a couple of loops to each seat rail for safety. I'm working on the rear seat now.



A couple more things done to the engine. I mounted the oil breather lines, and added my Bugpack bolt-on valve covers. Still need to do the fuel lines, but still not sure where I want the fuel filter. I also bought new J-tubes, so those will go on soon.



One interesting note for avid tamiya fans: The plug for the license plate light wiring is actually a Tamiya R/C battery connector.

Man o man. Finished the upholstery! I have a lot more respect for those who do that for a living. What a pain.
