Hi, I bought this 3 weeks ago & looked like it came out of a swamp :sign0020:
I should of took some B4 pics & its not a tri5 :sign0020: but for the price I could'nt pass it up.
I had to install ball joints, brakes, clutch & rear main seal (got oil on clutch & started to slip badly) missed a big cruise but made it to another one :)
rebuilt the carb. & basic tune up (only by ear because I misplaced my tach/dwell meter. I went thru 3 master cylinders & the 4th one was good
Did alot of polishing & waxing to bring it back to a good gloss.
It had mold & algae on her along with mud & crud. The seats had doule stick tape on them & what a mess.
The top comes off but I've not tried to remove it yet. At least this will keep me happy while I'm workin on my 57.

The wire wheels need a good cleaning gonna try to find some molasses to remove the rust.

nice kit car, by the way Brazilian and Mexican master cylinders are junk. What year frame and what motor?

Just set the points with a feeler gauge, and set the timing by lining up the marks with the engine off. You shouldn't need a dwell meter.

Hi, its a 1972 motor & frame vw 60+ HP. (It was hopped up a little lol)
All chromed out on the motor, but removing the rust from the wire wheels going to be a little trouble.(wires are off in pics) I will take some B4 pics & after pics of the wire wheels & center caps.
