Yeah, I’m so disappointed, I have happy memories of my dad and mom at this show ever since starting to attend #Volkswagen shows. This was the first show that #BadManxBuggy was ever in and I was bitten by the show #bug – pun intended… cheers to dad; R.I.P. free from #Cancer
it took me longer than expected to finish up the few pieces and I just took it for a spin… and….
To do list:
Adjust the clutch… I can’t get it in reverse
Adjust the brakes… the peddle is too low
Adjust the headlights
Align the front end and make sure everything is tight
Checked that the electrical system is charging properly
And that’s just from the first run… yeah really disappointed… but I can’t rush perfection.
Here is a shot of it, off the jack stands in 3 years and back on the ground.
Damn, it felt so good cruising in #BadManxBuggy once again, after 3 long years of blood, sweat and tears…. So disappointed…. ;-(
Next up, finishing the engine and rear wheels. Check the brakes, adjust the clutch and tune up the engine. And a new set of gaskets for the rocker covers, to stop the oil from dripping… haha yeah right!
Ah, Puerto Rico. Land of beautiful beaches, mofongo, and the largest private Volkswagen museum in the known world. VolkyLand is one of the island’s most unusual crown jewels: 170 pristineVW Beetles,Buses, Karmann Ghias, Things, and eye-popping one-offs, all the determined work of a single obsessive mind, sitting in a nondescript warehouse in a small city on the southwest coast. And now the entire collection is for sale.
