No Barntime this summer : (

F. was on vacation the hole summer and I was 
too much busy to spend time to the Barn or my projects.
There was just a little session on the end of July to 
make some TLC to the Hulk.

It sat in some garages the last 10 years, awaiting its reanimation.
After i found the title for it at home I get hungry for it.
It runs after 10 minutes of trying to start but the clutch won´t work.
I disassembled everything to change the clutch and 
unfortunally I broke me two fingers on the left hand 
with a hammer.. what a nice experience..
A friend who was visiting me in the Barn left me just minutes before,
so i drove to the Hospital with the Manta by myselfe,
A very nice experience too.

Since this i wasnt in the Barn and the Smallframe lays 
on the floor with the inside out,
  surrounded of some tools and things.

I guess F. hates me for not cleaning up the Barn 
after i broke my fingers...

Barnactivities part II

Today, I was finishing the workbench.
All it needs to be finished it is some wireing 
and two shelfes for both storetrays.

My old Ikea CD storage "Benno"
was getting a new challange too.

Measurements are 240 x 60 x 95
Workshelf is made of  Birchwood
Wheight: ca 85Kg
It was taking 12 hours to build.

At Benno our Barn-HiFi find a new home.
Radio/CD, amplifier , a active 3-way frequency switch
and the power supply for all sit behind the white cover.
Power supply and light switch on the right.

A good Workbench needs his own VIN.
´73 Squareback in that case.. ; )

F. is going to break the longtime record 
in slaming a Squareback.
2 Weeks and no end in sight.. ; )

My son was doing a complete overhaul of the engine in the meanwhile.

I´ve started to build our workbench.
Naturally not without the help of my son.

Ran out of screws so the workbench enjoys a little break till tomorrow.

Mainframe is done and those two boxes will 
get modified to drawers tomorrow.

1965 1500S Notch barnfind

The car problem about the rims is solved.
Bought me a 1965 1500S Notchback today at the austrian province of Waldviertel.
It was driven in this barn back in 1988 and sat there till now.

Interior is in good shape because the seats where allways covered with red seatcovers.
The whole car is a perfect base to build something nice out of it.
No missing parts and some boxes full of parts (some of them NOS in original Boxes) comes
with the car. 
Austrian title and the keys too.
As fas as I saw there is not much to weld, but I never trust a Type3 before  
I havent seen every area after some disassembling.

Sorry about the bad Iphone-pics, but i was too much excited about this find
and forgot to take more pictures or check quality of them.

Because of my time intensive job at the moment,
it will take some weeks before the Noch arrives to our barn,
so please be patient if you want to see mor of it.
Good things takes longer somtimes

The ´76 1. PO Manta or my confession to the aircooled scene

Some people say the biggest sin for a mid-european
aircooled VW guy is to drive an Opel.
But the absolute whorst case is to drive an Opel Manta.

Whatever...I dont care about that.
And here is the reason why:

One of the first Manta B Opel build back in 1976.

This is a unrestored survivor car.

This car is completly stock and covered just 86000 km´s.
Full stamped servicebook and a interior like new included.
Had much fun with it the last 2,5 years.

Its naturally not in showroom condition but rustfree
and untouched.Perfect enough for me to have fun with
it in the future too.

be there

More stuff

My ex `65 Pigalle and a few more boxes full of stuff arrived this week.

white ratpack

In the next time big  F. will bring two more Bugs to the barn.

And this guy is our security-manager
so, please dont come and visit the barn
whithout fixing an appointment before.
He is such a humorless bastard..

For the future the first projekt I want to reralize is
to build a small but usefull workbench for us.

Sorry for this amatuer sketch.
Was doing that in minutes at a very important
meeting at work.. ;) 

More of our Bench at one of the next posts.
Keep watching

fill it

Put some stuff in the barn.
Mr.F´s Whorstback arrived too.

In my opinion this Square just need its original 
headlights and indicators back,
a nice set of Fuchs rims and 
a full "slamitsession" .
This ride could be such a nice supershitlooker.
I love its home made rockers and 
belive it or not, this peace of crap
is´nt far to get a full austrian MOT!

75m² of freedom

This is just to get an idea what we are talking about.
