    Do all the windows have to come out for paint again?

    Yep they sure do, I plan on putting the bits and bobs for each in a zip lock bag and tape them to each window.

    Also have found a bit of a VW engine/gearbox builder in Bordertown.  Had a long chat to him, I think we have a plan for the motor.  A nice 2210cc unit based around brand new crank case halves, and I am starting to think of EFI and throttle bodies.

    That setup will be nice what efi and throttle body brand? Efi will be nice if you really plan to drive it as was the build brief

    The Dub Shop do a fantastic full kit.  Not cheap but has great reviews, and is well proven.

    For what’s included I reckon that’s cracker value.

    Sorry all been taking a bit of a break form working on cars.  But should be into again soon.  I like the ease of use in all conditions of injection.

    Hi all, been busy on other projects for a while, but back onto the bus this weekend.  Now working through fully finishing the stuff ready to give it to Cooper for a bit of his fettling then hopefully paint.

    Got the fuel filler cap in, the screws broke trying to get them out but ended up drilling them out and fitting M4 rivnuts which worked well.  Also fully finished the bulkhead, so no pin hoes at all in any welds and also welded smooth a few old screw holes etc it had collected over the years.  Now also have both front-wheel wells finished off, had a small rust repair to do in the side of the tray thingo between the front seats.  And also got the front valance fully welded in.  So a bit of progress.

    Hi mate, thanks.  No there is a guy that apparently is a bit of a wizz.  Its going to be based on a brand new aftermarket crank case, and pretty much all of it will be modern tech.  I did consider building it but even though they are simple, there is apparently a bit of an art to building them well.
