Hi everyone it’s been another week, I was hopping to run it this week, but we all know how that works out..... Interruptions killed me this week, along with, don’t powder coat something that you plan on wet painting later BAD IDEA......


It looks like my friend gave up on building a new shifter mount, oh crap here comes the bondo......wile you there Tim put some bondo on those bad welds. lol




Remember Measure 4 times cut once, measure 5 times cut once, no measure 6 times cut once, oh and make sure you have the switches you need before starting. There was a small mistake on the other gauge panel we where making, some how it became 1/2" to short wile someone was working on it. Oh well make another one, we needed to anyway, I forgot about the Windshield wiper switch, its there now.



The new gauge panel fitted and painted, and what a pain to wet coat this part for some reason, I even rough the powder coat up, I think it was the powder coat, even primer would not stick. Had to sand the powder coat off..




The rear Engine Skid in with tag light.




Started getting the shifter assembly together. Also all the new wiring from the back of the rail has been cleaned up and brought to the front to go to the fuse box and the gauges. and I finally found some oil pressure line over 11ft.



This week I need to find a speedometer shop that will cut my speedometer line and put a connection that will fit my autometer speedo.


NEXT WEEK IT WILL RUN, well maybe, fully independent dual carbs are hard to tune. Plus I don’t know if I'm an 180deg out on the distributor, or if the cap is wired rite. All the books show something different for this type 3, and its hard to find info on it since it only went into the Flat Back, and Square back VW.



SORY I DID NOT PUT ALL THE COLOR INTO THIS TIME, IT SEEMS SOME PPL DONT LIKE IT

Well over the last two weeks, most of the work has been small details work that really could not be seen. We did get it up and running.

We had some gas tank problems and ended up removing the tank and having it acid and steam cleaned on the inside. We also had to replace all the fule line and filters and cleaning all the connections.

got one seat mounted and working on the rails, and got the front floor pan in.



And yes, we are putting seat covers and foam in the seats.



We where going to drive it around the block this weekend, but since I did not have a 17mm allen wrench (almost a 3/4" allen wrench) to fill the trans axel we put it off till next year since Im leaving this week. We did move it under its own power a few feet just to test the clutch and lankage.

We also had problems With the custom dipstick, the type 3 did not have a dip stick, so we created a place for one. I did not plan on the engine producing as much oil pressure as it did, so oil was spitting out the top of the tube. I plan on welding in a 2.5" exstension and threading the top, The cap will now be threaded and will go to a nylon stick for oil level check. This will seal off the oil.



Im also hoping to have time to make a back cover the the gage cluster, along with window brackets for the rail

Well thats it for now..............
