Chassis prep
VW Type 4 engine Here, the fuel injection system, fan housing, alternator and engine tin have all been removed. The process of cleaning and repainting everything now begins. Because the fan housing looked so bad we decided to powder coat it.
Clean engine The engine is mostly clean at this point and re-assembly begins..
Engine running Back together. The powder coating came out really nice. After an oil change, new oil, air and fuel filters, it was time to try to start it up. It took about a minute of cranking (with fingers crossed) before it fired up.
VW front suspension On to the front end.... As I mentioned, the plan was to swap out the adjustable beam for a stock one. At the Carlisle Kit Car show I got a great deal on a complete disk brake front end. So, I now have the complete adjustable axle for sale.
VW disc brake front end At this point, I drained the brake system, changed the master cylinder, replaced a broken brake line and refilled the system. It was also around this time when I spent most of an afternoon adjusting the rear torsion bars to eliminate the sag in the right rear.
