Been a while since my last visit. Mainly came to post an ad for a 1971 Super I'm cutting up, but was looking through the ads at cars for sale and prices have gotten crazy! I remember getting into th ...

Those big springs, I actually pulled my shoulder out of its socket trying to reattach one using a pair of pliers. Be careful.

Will, do, onslow. And I know what you mean. Other than the door gap, these seals are great. I really have to slam the door to make sure it's closed all the way because they are so thick.

Here's how I look at it. Beetles were the Civics of their time: they took a beating and kept on going. Yeah, doing all the maintenance will guarantee you'll have a reliable car for life. But skippi ...

Thanks Grumpy, but the problem is the threads on my seat are stripped to, so the bolts are not going to help.
Dwayne, thanks, I found your topic on it. Seems simple enough. I think to make it even ...

So while driving today, my wife was messing with the passenger seat and the bolts came out that hold the back to the bottom. Strange, I thought. Upon inspection, I found that not only are the bolts ...

I didn't have to glue my seals from WW at all. They fit perfectly and held. But that edge is nowhere as big as Run posted. I even checked my other door seal, which I haven't put in yet, and it's no ...

OK, checked my seal, I see what you mean. The 'flap' part is larger in that area. I know the seal is on right because that part is where the latch is. It seems the flap is push in, though, so it do ...

I always get mad jealous when seeing Subaru conversions. I hope when the new VW engine I built dies, prices will have come down on certain conversion bits (like the transmission stuff)
