The exterior is, but the engine bay is white (sorta)
thanks Kai pretty sure they are Porsche Fuchs originals
Forget the sticky bun, they do great bacon & eggs!
A rare buy if they are original - if new more than likely made by Empi as a Fuchs replica
not new but have tidied up well....came off a T3 van so will give them a go on my 75 T2...let you know how l go........bargain at $450.....yippee!!!!!!!!!
Today I modified the accelerator linkage, and after a lot of mucking around have finally been able to achieve full throttle.
Now there is no holding me back.
Removed the rear shift rod
Cleaned the Shift rod tube with some gunk remover on pull through rag
Removed the rust off the rear shift rod on the wire wheel and painted it (try and stop the rust coming back too quickly)
Tonight it goes back in with a heap of grease and new shift rod bushes front and rear.
I replaced the front shift rod bush approx 8 months ago and it is approx 40% worn on the top already, the grease should help
Got the Ute back from a 750kms work journey to Sydney and back, driven by a friend.
Behaved itself perfectly, and didn't miss a beat...
Painted my exhaust with black heat resistant paint... Not much, but something
Put Daisy in the sunshine to dry her right out after all the rain. Finally I can drive somewhere and not get dripped on
Need to get you a BIG tube of silicon for your birthday lis
Yes good point or some new seal for the window and someone generous enough to sort that for me .
Maybe someone needs some new curtains made for them or I could tap dance!! :lol:
Silicone near paintwork.???/
lead flashing might do :lol:
....went out to make sure my bus was still there after the cyclone that went through here last night......
Busy day yesterday,
With the motor and gearbox out I gave the engine bay a spruce up with some white paint, it will do until the restore (another 2 years away)
Replaced the Fuel Lines, put in the new clutch cable, replaced the CV boots, greased the CV joints and put the gearbox back in.
Drove six hours without a windscreen. Bit of a head ache now! Watched the ominous storm clouds brewing and narrowly avoided getting a good drenching! Story and photos to follow after I get some sleep.
Just like riding a motor bike Roq
The wind in your hair, bugs in your teeth ride of a lifetime.
pulled the motor, replaced the fuel sender, breather lines and filler neck (it was worst than I thought) and it smells like a volkswagen again... without fumes, which is still a volkswagen smell, just a different volkswagen (?)
My Kombi smells like damp dust with that oily fuel smell crossed with wet dog
I dont think there's an airfreshner big enough
