On the road again!

Post by Damn-it Don on Sun Aug 17, 2008 12:19 pm

Back from Lindys (Herrells) with new bearings throughout the engine, new seals and some other odds and ends. Gotta laugh - things were running great, then suddenly, I had to do the last 100 yards down my street in first gear. ( Rolling Eyes no swearing though)
Turns out the wing nut on the clutch cable gave out- stripped the threads inside the nut. I just got done double nutting it this morning. Used with a big ol' washer and two regular nuts till I get a new wing nut (Cripes!) Very Happy

Didn't have much time to work today. Cut some kickpanels out of wood and then covered them with carpet I bought at Lowes this morning. The carpet was a slightly darker shade, but it's not to noticeable. I bought a 4ft by 6ft piece of this stuff and plan on using the rest to line the trunk.

Thanks alot Eric! This is my 3rd bug, but it's the first one I've ever torn apart and rebuilt. It's been a long fun learning experience. I also put the rubber and trim on my windshield, so hopefully me and my dad can maybe get it installed in one piece this weekend. Oh, and I cut a huge chunk of skin of one of my knuckles with the dullest pair of scissors on earth. Laughing

Steering wheel looks great! I repaired mine and painted it white a couple of months ago. It took about seven tries. It was really hard not to get runs on such a small curvy surface.

Started stripping it down for a brake overhaul, decided to rebuild starter since I could get to it better without everything in the way, adjusted valves because of easy access, now I'm going to replace those sump studs so I can put on my shiny new billet sump cover and who the hell knows what else I'll get into while she's up in the air.

Be careful. I started with a slipping clutch in my '68 and ended up with this...

I had the same thing happen to me a few weeks ago. I was headed up Barrett Parkway towards Kennesaw. My wife wasent happy. The problem was - a 1960 does nto have a gas guage - it has a reserve switch and tap. My car did not have the tap so I put it in. I didn't know it and had the switch on reserve and ran all the way out. I know which way the switch goes now.

Installed a shifter out of a bay bus in my bug. I first cut the bus shifter near the base and did the same on my bug shifter. Then I welded the bus shiter to the bug base. Also heated it in a few spots and added some cool bends so it sits right. It turned out looking real good. I'll post some pictures tomorrow. Now I just need to find a cool shifter knob. afro
