So I'm out in the Renault with the boys and pull in to let a car pass by, as he pulls up along side me he roles the window down and asks "you need any spares for your car? I got one of those, somewhere" (on his farm) gives me his business card says to give him a call 8) Could be worth a look...
That looks fine Rich, all ready for some summer cruising. I'm just changing the engine in our camper, so as you can imagine there's a fair bit of fettling going on, and I keep on finding more to do while the engine is out! Lovely morning, so back to work.:smile:
Thats a very tidy bay Brian, you could eat your dinner of the engine :lol: Do you go to many vw shows?
The barndoor has had a lot of welding and is super solid and has been painted :lol: I have tried to blend old with new paint. I took an engine out a beetle last night to fit in the barndoor, unfortunately it looks no where near as nice as yours.

Hi Rich, this engine has only done about 1500 miles since I fitted it back in the spring, it's a TES re-con unit, 1641cc with Engle 100 cam.

Sounds like you have a keen classic scene in your area. Sorry, I thought the Splitty was in it's original paint, but it does look great. Been out today in the 4L, turned a few heads, and made people smile. Regards Brian. PS, I can see us being told shortly to stop talking VW on a R4 site:smile:
