68 beetle class project

Postby greasemonkey » Fri Dec 22, 2017 9:11 pm

Well we got a nice starter project thanks to Brad. So far we have cleared a space for it in the garage, removed all interior things including seats and headliner. We have started to remove the wiring harness and wire wheel all attachments between body and heater channels. After break the plan is to soak all body mounting bolts, finish removing harness, gas tank and motor. Then trying to unbolt the body. I Sam starting to accumulate parts that I will need for the build as I find them. So far I bought Dansk channels, ghia disc brake spindles and new seat covers from TMI. Good thing we are in no rush because this may take a while!! I will try to post some picks after the new year.
