Took the car out the unit on tuesday night, to sort a couple of thinks out.

1 ) adjust the new steering box, as now starting to bed in.
2) straighten out the steering wheel.
3) get some castor shims as the steering does not straighten out very well.
4) clean underneath.
5) raise the rear slightly, as axle tubes are hitting the heat exchangers and arms are hitting the rear shock horns.


When it was jacked up i found a rear hub was leaking oil, so now new rear shoes again and hub seal kit. which is a bit of a pisser tbh.

next re-paint the passenger door, and that should be pretty much it.


also got a new tank sender coming as found the rubber seal was split when i filled up to go to volksworld.

I bought this car off e/bay, back in end 2006, from a guy he advised that the car was not that bad, and the top looked good from the pictures i had.
My face just dropped when it turned up. My stupid fault for not looking at the car. Will never trust anyone from pictures again.
so poo or bust i decided to carry on the resto.

this one of the pics i recieved before buying

Where did you get that lower rear firewall thingy panel from mate? The only thing I can find is a complete rear firewall from VWHeritage and Machine 7. Smile

I've learnt so much from this post.
