I placed Sharky 2 ('66 Fasty) on the garden for a while together with Michey ('67 KG 'vert), because we fixed our carport. The cement has to cure for a while! The other two vee-dubs ('71 superbug and '72 bus), have to stay out of the carport also!

I finished putting the engine all back together with new parts and got everything all back in the car.

Drove the car for the first time this morning into work. Very Happy

Over the last two weeks I have finished a bevy of electrical projects. Jokon Reverse lights, 4-way emergency flashers and door dip-switches. Everything works now 'cept for my clock... I was so excited that I put my car in reverse, turned on the flashers and opened and closed my doors just to watch everything work. Very Happy Very Happy

I took it to the body shop to get an estimate on fixing the cracked metal around the lower passenger side hinge.

I don't miss the tropics at all, not for a single second, ever. I LOVE Washington weather!

well mostly done yesterday -- the sons 72 was up on blocks for longer than I wanted to replace the tranny - and got everything back in place and started it up for ~10 seconds when it just died... replace the condensor today and it runs like a top -- now he won't be driving my autos.
My wifes 71 was down for a major engine rebuild -- got it running yesterday, sounds GREAT!!! had some ITC's on it when I got it -- swapped back to solex's -- the only "bad" is it looks like I f'd up the "rear" main and its leaking oil fairly good rate -- that one is comming out tommorow, and hope I can get Tom to come over for beer & dinner to put in another (correctly)....

I scraped about 15 lbs of grime, grease, and red clay mud off of the transmission. Turns out it's a beetle trans....

My friend and I spent the morning digging out my new squareback. It is my first type 3. It took us three hours to dig a path in about 3 feet of snow and 100 yards long. Brought it home, tossed on a couple 34 ICT carbs and it started right up. Pics of the whole ordeal will be posted soon.

I replaced the broken clutch cable in my '66 squareback. I finished the install of the '67 dual port dual carb engine in my '68 squareback, runs great Smile The original '68 fuel injection engine will be repaired & re-installed later.
