I'm not worried about it right now. but thanks for the offer. myself, a friend of mine who has built beetles and buses and antoher ford ceritfied friend can probably figure it out. I'll just have to suck it up and by the timing tools.
my next big job other than headliner is to rebuild the doors. it's amazing how much road noise is coming from there.
i dont remember replying but everytime i see this
i just want to tell you that it is factory stock
the lip of the fabric is supposed to go under the windshield seal and the other side under the inner door seal
my 81 has this fabric also and the roof has bare cardboard all the fabric has been totally torn off
i often find myself picking at the fabric and ripping it off
* strip it down to just the frame and clean it inside and out
* replace all glass seals
* replace all scrub seals
* replace primary door seal
* reinstall window regulator, make sure everything is nice and tight
* clean/rebuild door latches
* add rust proofing/sound deadening as desired
* fab up new moisture barriers
etc etc. obviously, you'd replace any crappy fasteners as well, whatnot.
you'll be amazed at how much nicer this kind of work will make your car. trust me. the best mods are those that nobody notices.
moogie on ebay has full door kits
I will be doing this to my truck. I've already done about 1/2 it to each door already (cleanup, new moisture barriers, tighten it all up) and even this made a difference.
woo thats pricey. I'm sure it will help though, Idk if I'd be able to go at it in one kit, but yea it seems like a good idea to do that thanks for the advice.
Caddy pan is here, but battalion mail clerk went on leave.....and his replacement likes to leave early.
I would do the pump yourself. Save some money, get some satisfaction that you did it, and it's easy. As for bleeding the system check out my thread since I had a system full of air and just follow the steps and she'll be good to go
Real name is Matysik not Matt or any other thing you guys conjure up
Yea I'm doing it myself. Ill figure it out with the help of some friends.
caddy pan came in
along with new turn signals for the front bumper, and control arms in the mail.
also i got some speakers and a small 4 channel amp to make a little sound system I can hook right up into my Iphone. It consists of 2 6x9s with enclosures, a 4 channel amp and one 4x6 for the dash speaker. (which I have one for sale if anyone wants one )
I need to have more time. I am just hoarding parts in my room as of now. I feel unaccomplished. haha

Recently I got in new control arms, new turns, and motor mount brackets to put the new mounts in to make the change a little easier for me when I get there.
tonight we put on the caddypan and with some elbow grease we got it to fit pretty good. the end plates near the plate will need to be cut off and put a piece that fits, but overall I am happy with the look
Here's a question for you guys. I know there isnt a switch power except for the one when the key is in, but I have another question.what if All the accesories i want (i.e temp guage, air compressor for shocks, ipod stereo system) could be hooked to one power switch. kind of like a distribution block for power on a switch. how would you guys go about doing that? or is there another way to go about it?
help is appreciated.
