Done a few more jobs on the Bug :smt003

Time to check the drivers side front brake. Wonder what will be inside :smt017
Image

The drivers side front brake actually had some workings inside :smt004 Well, when I say some, what I mean is it had one adjuster which was more than the other side had :lmao
Image

Fitted the new parts to the brakes
Image

New shocks fitted which I had in stock from other projects :smt003 Also fitted new brake flexi and tightened up all the steering.
While I was checking the steering I noticed the front beam wasn't bolted on :smt103 two bolts were in by about 3 threads, one was just pushed in place and the last one was missing :smt018
Anyway, I sorted all that out and then went round the whole car and checked every nut and bolt to be 100% sure everything was tight and as it should be :smt019
Also blead the brakes and they're working fine now, so it should go and stop ok ... Not sure how well it will do either of these tasks though :smt017 :lmao
Image

Moved on to the inside. Cleaned all the floor and then did my usual trick and gave everything a good coat of Waxoil to prevent any future rot in the event of water leaks etc :smt012
Image

Added some soundproofing

Image

Then made all the carpets, fortunatly I had a pair of new front mats to help finish the job off :smt012
Image

Still got the rear carpet to finish off and a few more little jobs to do :smt003 :smt007

More to follow

It's ready for a road test now, but there's a slight problem with getting it out onto the road :smt017 Seems I've gathered a few bits and bobs over the last month and they're all in the way and piled up in front of the garage :smt005 Just a few things mind.... Like a full campervan front end from US, 2 engines, 3 exhaust systems, Porsche patern VW hub set :smt004 Couple of cylinder heads and a few other bits.... Oh, few bags of sand and cement and a load of timber. Trouble is there's nowhere for it all to go :smt013
I'll take a picture tomorrow :smt012

With all that labour that went into his variant, the guy who gave the beetle should have given you all those missing parts x2. Have you checked if the torsion bars and springs are in place mate? :smt003 However, you're doing great as always, love the carpets, they look very nice. :smt012

:smt003 I love collecting bits Danny, think it's becoming an adiction :lmao I've got a full early Bay complete rear roof and side section in the workshop, as well as 4 engines in bits and a load of other stuff :smt012 Trying to locate a bargain stroker crank to build a 2007cc motor for the Bus but so far found nothing under £250 :smt018

I'm always up to something Andy. I've had a great idea, but think it will cost me a few quid and a shed load of work :smt017 We'll see how things go next year :smt019

Your not wrong there Doros, I think he got the better part of the deal in the end but to be fair, we didn't realise how much work the Type 3 would take and the general condition of the Beetle is pretty good so it's not all bad... Mind you, it could have been better :smt003

:lmao You know what Rob, I think your right :smt012
Where've you been hiding anyway ? It's been quite a while.

Have to say that looks a bit of a beast with that cossy engine sticking out the back :smt004 I like it. Is it yours ? :smt019
