Default Re: Son's '73 ghia - a distraction

So I got the shift rod all cleaned up and installed. Then dug through the pile of parts to find the shifter and mounting plate. Guess what I found?

So the shifter has a pin and the new shift rod does not have the slot for it.

No worries, just adds a couple hours tomorrow to the build. I will cut the groove in the new rod

Oh wait..... I have to take it all back out again to do that

But isn't that the fun part of these old VW's? Working on things three times? Cleaning all the old rust and grit off of them? Cutting things, modifying things to fit etc?

I think half the time that I am not sane. The other half of the time I know I am not.

But....heh heh heh, I am one step closer to getting this ghia finished and one step closer to starting Vivian.
