Yupe. Spotted it in a dealership lot. Drove in asked around with my family. For shits and giggles we left a number. Owner was the lot's wholesaler. Remembered us from the VW club, cut me a deal since I was getting it. Car's in really damn good shape.

I just hope I can fix the paint without screwing up the vinyls. The car actually went down Route 66. The PO and his wife just one day hopped into it and went the whole route. The keys have a tag from a motel in New Mexico.

I hope one day I can make that trip. Always wanted too. Maybe now I have an excuse.

Clean up the top where the Clear is flaking... Mask it off and Paint the whole top as a Black and White Checkerboard... and clear it... Looks great as is... I'd probably leave it alone unless I was taking it to someone to do the paint fix... I hate Base/Clear paints... They're fine on a new car usually... but after factory paint I've had to deal with always has a problem of one kind or another with that system.

I bid on some dual carbs.. got them they're solex h40/44 got them for 192$. Wait why does h40/44EIS sound familiar?

Holy shit they're kadrons!

Yes I got a set of kadrons, set up with balance tubes and the works for cheaper than Chinese empi weber clones!

They look to be set up by the kaddieshack and only have 25 miles on them. Just won the auction today but still I'm excited!

I almost didn't contact the guy, thinking that the price
was so cheap, it had to be a Chinese knockoff.

I guess that everyone else though the same thing. :)

I just got a millermatic 135 for 475 from a family friend. It's been rarely used, came with everything the cart the extra parts and a tank and regulator.

Fuck yeah got me a decent mig welder. The best part is most of my tax return and play money was able to pay for it all. So no hit to my move to Texas fund!

Default Re: SCORE!!

Just picked up this working compressor, I think it has a 30 gallon tank, single phase motor, it was working until they discontented it a couple weeks ago, I'm gonna go ahead and clean it up and I might even paint it IF I can find enough paint without buying any, the price was the best part, all I had to do was pick it up this morning to get it out of my friends garage because he ran out of space



The only problem I'm gonna have is getting it out of the trailer once I get the trailer up to the garage,this thing is heavy and awkward, I hope my engine crane will lift it high enough, then I have an issue because I have a truck and a crashed car in the way, the crashed car is my youngest son's Honda he says he's gonna take the engine out to put in another car, its been sitting for 18 months now and he hasn't touched it, he moved an hour away, the truck is my oldest son's, all I hafta do is put a battery in it, he will be home August 29th to get it which makes me happy

Ron

So where are you going in Ohio on the 23rd?
If your gonna be in my area I could use the help if it isn't moved by then, I almost have the hard part done, that's clearing the path from my driveway to the garage
Tomorrow I'll clear an area inside my garage to put it, and I have no idea where to put all that stuff, but once everything is moved around I hope my Volksrod can push the trailer all the way back there, it's up hill, not very steep, 85 feet and about a 6 foot rise, the last 25 feet are the steepest, then it has to go around a 90 degree turn, not much room on either side, kind a like threading a needle in the dark, with the oval window it maked backing a trailer up tough, by rhe time you see that it isn't going the way you want it it's way off, I may just try to get it as far as I can then get as many people as I can and push the trailer the rest of the way

It ain't gonna be easy


Ron

Wow, it took me 3 days to get logged in, after clicking the log in button it would say thanks for logging in, then it would redirect me to the main forum page but I wasn't logged in, this time I checked the remember me box and here I am

So I got this monster compressor in my garage yesterday, I spent a day putting wheels I've had laying around for the last 10 years on it, then used a long 2 by 4 and pushed up hill and to it permenent place, I just hafta take the wheels off, spend the next 3 weeks cleaning up the mess I made making room for it, I was about ready to put the engine into my Eldorado but now everything has stuff all over it, I guess I'll hook it up while I'm cleaning up, I'm pretty sure I have enough wire to hook it up, I guess I'll find out
Just thought I'd show a pic of my old compressor next to the new one


Now I can use all the air tools I've had that my little compressor couldn't run
