Why do you have to "put your two cents in,"
but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"?
Where's that extra penny going to?


Just remember saying I'm sorry and appologizing are the same thing.
Unless you are at a funeral.

Looking good, Brian!! It looks a little different than it did when it left my house.


You should post some more pics of all the other stuff you've done to it...the fender holes, dash, pan, front end, etc.

looking good guy. Couple of questions. Did you knock out the bolt plugs or just fill and cover them? and Is that your stock tank just turned around?
Thanks

I can't say for sure about the bolt plugs. That is the stock tank turned around and raised up a bit.

the fender holes were welded up along with the trim holes, I inserted a screw head backward into the holes tacked them them grinded down the screw threads flush. Worked perfectly. The gas tank is turned around and lifted in the front. I used the stock rear mounts and used a 1x1 square stock for the front, plenty of steering clearance.

Hey, your wheels don't match! I can round up another pair of smoothies or 66-67 slots if you want. It looks good though. What are the plans for the engine?

smoothies would be great, I thinking a 1600ish with a cam, nice heads with dual carbs, or something in the 1900cc range. I could use some help lowering the back and the chopping the top soon after. Working on the steering extension now and hard line the front brakes.

I'll be glad to help you chop it. I've never done it but I'll still be glad to experime...um, help on yours. I want to chop mine but I'm not starting on it until the 67 is back on the road and the 64 is at least partially together.

got the steering done. With the late model VW steering column I had to use a 7/8 shaft collar as a bushing inside the column 5 bucks from TSC. I use Honda couplers only cause they were free. Overall it worked out great and the best part was the price. i also used the beam bushing for the steering column through the firewall.
