Cool Re: VWince

What I want to be doing and what I have to do are two different things. So once I get those necessary chores out of the way, I can finally do a bit on the annual volksrod slow progress build.
1. Weld in access panels
2. Fab work on the removable rear apron and weld
3. Fit adjusters to front beam
4. Cut front apron for 8” extender
5. SA to IRS conversion – weld in pivot boxes
I’m in two minds here, if I remove the body from the pan to do the SA to IRS conversion (better access neater job) will it be the turning point where it’s more logical to go and do a full paint and panel and the project being many more years away. Or do I do the IRS conversion in place and get this thing back on the road quicker to enjoy it and plan for a teardown and paint in a few years’ time.

Tear it apart do the conversion. But only paint the pan this time and put it back together and enjoy till later date.

Suspension is not the place to skimp.

Do it right.

Paint can wait.

As I said earlier, build YOUR shit, YOUR way, and at YOUR pace. Looking good, and yes, duel 40's or 44's are a tight squeeze in a bug engine bay. I never cut the access holes either. I just built a truck.

Well its been a while for sure, however I am still making progress. While not a lot can be seen its taken a bit of saving to get a few things reconditioned, motor (1600 to 1916 - 110 cam etc) and IRS box. I managed to get the IRS conversion done and reassembled now checking clearances to dial in the spring plates and ride height. Ive also been working om my bike project - http://www.volksrods.com/forum/showp...postcount=2911

The roadster is looking fantastic , like she's taking a few cues from the bike. I love where you're going with those rear fenders.
