Heater channel part one


Cutted and cleaned

Channel is closed

Panel is closed.
Because it was to late in the night to make noise
I don not finish grinding.

I also cleaned the wheelhouse and frontpanel 
to bare metal and coated it with industrial primer. 


New vinyl seat covers and side panels delivered by

1776 first run

See here a vid of the first fire up of my freshly build 1776 engine.
For testig I put that engine into in my mexican Bug.
Ignition setting was bad and a single stock carreburator was installed
 instead of the Weber I´ve ordered 2 days before testing.
They are allready here now.

BUG (again) !

Bought me a `68 Bug and a completly restored pan for it.

 Small accident demage at the bumper bracket.

 Heaterchanel end at the front of passenger 
side need some welding.
Driver side looks good.

 This whorst repaired areas need attention too.
Same on drivers side.

Iam not a friend of this 
aftermarket Britax crap.

 OK this is a `78 pan but hey, its completly restored!

 Beam is adjustable, dropped spindles are in and 
the disc brake conversation is brand new.

Hope to find time to finish this project soon.
