Little update, this storage area was built some time ago, but what I didn't take into account was the weather stripping. The whole box was really tight as it was, but now it needed grease and a floor jack to put it in. Don't think it will ever fall out even if I want it to.

Anyways, the out side 120 volt power converter was added to the front of the box and installed permanently. Thank god something is getting done finally.

How proud you must and should feel! And that GULF when you look back to when you started...

Best!

Keep up the good work, Jason! It's really nice to see this project nearing the final stretch. Can't wait to hear about the drivetrain installation.

Well, this thread has been at a snails pace due to DMV titling issues. It's prevented me from working on it until the paperwork is completed. Now its titled the way it should be, so more will be coming on the build.

I did get the top on, front bumper, and rear door is in place. The windows where also added with tint. Not crazy dark with the tint, just enough to keep the sun off.

Nice to see it on the road...Well kind of...

On my Syncro I am using epytec adapters, G60 calipers, and 312x25 bigger Audi rotors. Over 1" more rotor diameter should give some extra brake torque. For the rear I'm planning 25mm VW LT wheel cylinders and semi metallic shoes.

They are going to be G-60's, yet i wish they where a Wilwood setup. I know it can be done and it would make pad changes so easy in the future, but it requires fabrication. I am all out of extra fabrication patients. Maybe at a later date.

I had some old pictures of the G-60 rebuild, but i cant find them at the moment.

Well. Now is a time to give a massive thank you to Burley Motor Sports for going the extra mile. Maybe 2 miles. I had a problem with the front ends shock mounting and was missing two very rare collar insert things. This is an item that is not sold or manufactured, and as far as i know, can only be obtained from a factory Syncro. I called up burly and let him know the situation and he not only gave me the parts, but also took the time to pull them from his syncro parts. Most people wouldent let go of such a rare item, let alone take time and do some wrenching to give it to another guy. Thank you very much Burley.

Here is the front end all put together. Everything was sand blasted and powder coated to restore the glory.

Well after years this van was finially painted. Everything whent smooth and no problems spraying the monster liner. Some people may not like the monster liner look, but for me it looks great and with a bonus of no maintainence at all.

In total, 4 gallons of monster liner and three gallons of lizard skin sound deadener was used. The cost was about $4,000 cheaper then a good normal $5,000 paint job and I never have to wax it. Cool

If the welds are going to be covered up, no reason to go crazy. After the paint it will all bend in.


Heck yeah! I like that rear bumper you made a lot, might have to do something similar myself.
