Default Re: I aquired another VW

Engine is in, fired it up earlyer this evening, seems to run just fine altho I do need to check the timing again to make sure it's set rite, other than that all I need to do is switch the front brakes over to disc (tomorrow if I can get to the front of my buggy to get them off) then install the front windshield and test drive it up and down the street a few times.

Maybe I can get someone to work the camera and get some video, and I'm betting it rides like it's got stiff rods for shocks up front, I think I'm gonna hafta cut and reweld the front beam a bit to raise it up an inch or so, right now the beam has been turned as low as it could possibly go and when I jump up and down on the front it doesn't move at all. Plus there is about 8 inches between the top and bottom shock mount and I wanna run front shocks.

I think I'm gonna take an old pan I have and raise up the front bulk head and also the rear torsion housing to get the low down look rather than do away with any suspension travel at all.

"Can't" is a word that means your to lazy to even try.
