What's the odds....

Post  Tanbug on Wed 24 Mar 2010, 10:30 pm

My first bug was a yellow 71.

39 years later my first bus is a yellow 71.

The only thing you see in the rear view.

Next on coming home is a 65 walk thru 11 window project. Cool

It will come down....real easy to do.
This is the new daily driver, little stuff to check over to bring it up to my standards.
Big stuff comes later after I get caught up on paying projects.

For my 2 cents I think bays are cool with some altitude adj. Maybe if a guy could get the dash board looking a little more retro / paint work/ possibly older steering wheel?? And besides the prices aren't in the sky like splits cheers cheers

Like I said, it will get the spindles in the front and a notch in the rear. Has some rust bubbles low.....that's to fix for later. This is the driver....the 65 comes home after BAP, that will be the cool one. Cool

Bay has been a real PITA, BOCRAP carb turned to #2, undriveable for a week.
Combine crappy carb, intake leaks, vapor lock, weak fuel pump, you are screwed.
By the time all that is fixed, 100 degree weather evaporating gas, and building a Solex original 34PICT-3......
.....it actually runs again.
