Never say Never

Since it is going IRS as soon as this rolling pan is stripped, I can say never.

I love my IRS 65 Notch with sunroof. It rides so nice, that I can drive it for hours at a time. I can't say that about a lot of the cars I own, but that one I can. But then I built it as a cruiser, a long distance cruiser that is. You'll love the sunroof.

Donor pan. Gets pressure washed tomorrow.

Does anyone make the t3 specific pan gasket anymore? WCM seems to just make the generic stuff now.

WOW, you didn't waste any time getting the body off. That pan looks nice and solid too. 8)

I pressure washed the pan yesterday. Some wite brushing, a small patch and rust inhibitor should be enough.

POR-15, upper and lower ball joints are ordered. My goal of body on pan has been pushed back, but for the right reasons!

I think that's all that's available any more.

As for ball joints have you tried Rock Auto? I got Meyle brand the last time I bought some.

Spent the morning prepping my pan for POR-15. I found one more hole, right under the driver's heal. So... there will be a bit more to weld prior to coating.

vwfye Fri Jul 10, 2020 1:41 pm

1st coat of POR-15 applied. Can says 4-6 hours before the second coat.

vwfye Sun Jul 12, 2020 1:30 am

Second coat is on. Pretty happy with the result! Now, to get those balljoints and install.

Did you change out the rear kick panels on the donor pan for the notch style?

It shouldn't make that much of a difference, since it'll mostly be stripping extra parts off

vwfye Tue Jul 14, 2020 11:10 am

I still have to finalize the plan before I worry about it.

Cool new project, yo!

You might try some self sticking pick up cap seal. It\ll end up like that sticky residue that is commonly found on later VW's. Might be worth a shot, and it's cheap enough to work with, since you're not going back 100% stock.

vwfye Sat Jul 18, 2020 9:46 am

I might, or I might just use a liquid gasket. I am hopi g for an initial fitting this week. No gasket then as the body will come back off. I need it on to see if my trans/engine hanger idea will work.

Nice contrast
