ha that hole in the roof option is gunna have to wait till i get it going down the road! im going to try to pull the motor tonight or tomarrow so we'll see whats wrong with it, in the meantime, here are some pics of the model i made of it, its an 55 oval (thanks to tim), not sure of the manufactuer, but it looks close i narrowed the front axle, slammed it, and fixed a few other things...enjoy!










EDIT: you would not believe the difference in windows in a fat chick and an oval! maybe i need to retrofit one of those new rectangle windows Shocked lol jk

for now, it will stay like it is, maybe a little scrubing, and cleaning, for this summer, now i just gotta get it running right. later on i'll fix it up, i'm thinking green for paint but i have plenty of time to decide. im thinking about polishing the 5 spokes, they are my favorite wheel so i'll keep them, i have bumpers to put on it, just gotta find time.

No i think he said that because all the pictures of the little one seem to be on your bathroom counter.

thanks havoc,

haha, ok Pete as long as you supply the 3 fold rag clip...

and a little update, i have the engine out and tore apart, im still trying to find my oil leak, i know the oil pressure switch is leaking, so i picked up a new one, but i still have a leak, looks like it coming from the genorator stand is there supposed to be a gasket in between the stand and the gen? (it has a porsche 12v gen) I also installed some bumpers, pics soon.

No gasket, just a thin metal baffle. I suppose you could make one with some thin gasket material. I would use the rubberized cork material , not just cork.

I just reread your post you said "between the stand and the generator". I assume you meant between the stand and engine case?

I havn't removed my stand in over 2 years, but isn't there two gaskets that sandwich the thin metal baffle piece? or am i confusing those gaskets with the oil pump cover gaskets?

My 52-57 VW workshop manual says there's a paper gasket between the generator and generator stand. It's not illustrated and no part number is provided.

scratch

Good luck!
