Some Trailer stuph
Trying to find the grease seal for the hub of this thing is impossible...so I had to get creative.
Finally getting something worth posting again....
I had a great year at the bug run. Picked up some fenders for the '63 and found a frame from a 50's era Allstate single wheel trailer for a price that I couldn't pass up.
The Wheel bearings have been a bear to find but I finally got em pieced together.
I found brackets too but the guy wanted almost as much for them as I paid for the trailer...so I decide to make my own.
I also put this together in the last few months....it was a nice diversion
is this the one that got banged up in the front end not too long after the beach cruise a couple of years ago? Glad to hear you're getting back to work on it!
Do busses have the splines on the axels like bugs? Could have broken off the last spines on the rear drums ...would get you revs, no stalling, etc . . .
thanks. Sounds like it would be a top coat kind of treatment after dealing with the rust that has already formed.
sounds like a decent product
Got the body separated and the pan off. Working on getting the new pans on now. Worst thing I have found so far is a mammoth mouse nest throughout the entire tunnel. I am thinking about going with Eastwoods inside-the-frame system to make sure I don't have rust issues down the road from whatever the mice were doing in there.
some artsy fartsy fun
I could hook you up with a better distributor...I have several SVA or SVDA distributors
lying around. That would help with your pict3 carb
I haven't looked much yet. I am probably going to go over to the Maaco I have heard good things about from the vw community...over in Vancouver I think. Im a couple months from painting I think
passenger floor....its coming out too...just the back half though
Just about ready to lift the body off
Finally getting some work done on the '63. Gotta get this interior out so I can get the body off and cleaned and ready for paint...and I have to replace the pans. Note the classic PO fix for a hole in the floor.....
