Anyone available to lend a hand this weekend?

Post by VW12step on Wed Aug 04, 2010 6:05 pm

Almost finished with the Super, but school starts tomorrow and I WILL DRIVE THIS TO Y U BUGGIN!! (But I may need a little experienced help to make it.) Still need to install front and rear glass, re-do the pedal cluster and get the gas float installed. After that it should be ready to hit the road!

If anyone is free Saturday or Sunday I could really use a hand.

Thanks!!

careful installing that glass...it can be a pain and you don't wanna break it! use lots of WD-40 on the seal when you rope it in.

I really would love to help, but we're leaving for Virginia after work tonight and won't be back until late Sunday. Good luck, looking forward to seeing it at YU Buggn!

if you have to drive it Monday then it would be better if we worked on it Saturday so that would give a day to fine tune it


What is left? windows?, pedals?, bleed brakes?

Saturday is GREAT. Windows, pedals and brakes are left. I picked up an accelerator cable tube and have everything else needed to finish up.

Thanks a million guys!

I'll be there at 7am tomorrow because he has to let me in early since he is going out of town. Anytime after that is great.

Thanks, my son is still swimming, but not in competition. He's pretty focused on his Air Force stuff right now.

Glenn that would be great! Thanks.

Thank you Bryce and Shaky!!! It ran and moved on its own power today for the first time in years thanks to the heroic effort of these guys! Still have some wiring issues to work out and glass and interior, but...IT LIVES!

There was a PO and current owner mess of wiring, but they patiently went through it and got it going.

Can't thank you enough guys! Cool
