line lock time:-)
made a bracket for it
and finished off the front V-support
headlight buckets are in, time for the supports
the little pipe for the electricql wires welded in the body
and inside the headlight bucket
time to re-create that support
all done... on to the other side
needed a modifiction on the exhaust... the current CSP one was just too low! So Dries asked if I could help him in rewelding it!
only 1 thing to do... cut it up!
positioning and welding to make it fit
PERFECT with at least 6-7 cm of extra ground clearance!
one happpy capitan:-)
needed some welding in the battery area. they have been putting a plate in there, but bdaly done so that needed correction. Goal was to get to the original look again?
creating some fresh metal
battery tray testfitting
wout at work
All done! With some fiishing it will look good again:-)
Just got some pics from the upholstery shop... LOOKS GREAT!!
Had a bay window traction bar I wanted to use since it has the correct mouting to the engine... but with my exhaust it seemed alll I could use were the curved ends. All teh rest went into teh scrap bin
my new base traction bar
presenting it in teh car. My dilemma was where to put teh rubber dampners... in the middle, or at the ends. In the end the cleanest installation was to plce them in the middle and fix them to the engine
throughbolts welded in the bar
and the brackets made
with teh end supports welded on... all done
still need to re-inforce these triangles so they are solid enough as fixation points
other modification needed:
heater boxes did not fit due to the design of the Porsche with teh low body below the seat (where teh beetle has the high section behind the rear seat)
so I had to remove the valve section of the heater boxes and lower the section to make it fit. This also means I will need to recreate this valve section and place it there where teh hot air would enter the body...
and welded the fitting for teh lambda sonde in the collector
