I spent the week working during our plant shutdown between Christmas and New Years so I'll have some extra money to work on the V8 Beetle over the next couple of weekends......
I'm 2nd in charge of our Maintenance Dept. at an aluminum foundry and I got a team of our guys together and we spent the week trying to work towards getting caught up.
I did a 1000hr inspection and service on a heat treat line, replaced the electric (& slightly modified) trailer brakes on a 36" band saw, put new guide rods and guide rod bushings on 3 horizontal core machines, and caught up on the always fun paper work....
Today I have some plaster repair to do at work, then I need to get the governor adjusted on my generator, then hopefully I'll have some time to start eye-balling the floor on our V8 Beetle......
I made an aluminum seal plate and gasket to seal up where my fuel tank line goes thru the floor in the trunk.
I also sat down and mapped out a plan for attaching the new door panel and custom molded arm rests. I decided to cover the aluminum panels with padded vinyl in a 2 tone setting. Now I just need to make the parts and do it. Hopefully next week I'll get started on it.
Been trying to get my 69 Bonneville back together after being torn apart for the last 5 years,, finally got it painted and trying to remember how it goes back together,, getting old really sucks,, makes ya lazy,,,
