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…. ;-(
Oh yeah, some day #BadManxBuggy wants to make the trip and enjoy the show.
I have been busy putting the last few major pieces back together, cleaned up the engine, put the baja bumper back together and started fitting it last night. Should have that done by the end of the day. After that, reinstalling the side pods, the rear tires… check it over and take for the first spin since 2015…
Fabricating some backing plates for the roll bar to help support the roll bar, on the fiber glass body.
All the little things that take the time… but you can’t rush #Perfection lol…. Unpolished, they still need to be shinny…
Can’t wait, it has been a long time since I’ve felt the engine roar and the wind in my hair.
But, this is what I got done, before I had to go back to work.
Finished drilling the holes for the seats
Picked up Stainless Steel bolts, for the people that look under the floor pan
Tune up the engine, new plugs, distributor cap, rotor and wires… I did have a new set of points but the connection to the condenser was wrong and no pin in the mounting bracket… I have to follow up with #CaliforniaImports dot CA
Checked the heads and the oil flow to the rockers and installed new rocker cover gaskets… think it’s still going to drip oil??? Oh hell yeah!
And for your viewing pleasure, some pictures…. Hey, give me a break, at least it’s not food…. 😉 #FaceBitch
Nice red wires this time, for a little pop!
