      The vapor lock happened due to a exhaust leak
      The fuel line doesn't have clamps. When I take this stuff off it is easier to just cut off. It doesn't pull off easily. It can but it's tough. It won't come off the plastic filter with out destroying it. No worries there

      The fuel that ignited came from when attempted to free up the vapor lock. I spilled a lot of fuel. But when the fire ignited there was no open or constant source.
      Yes, this was all my fault. But none of it was due to no clamps or the filter placement.

      Not really, It has caught fire twice. the most recent was on 9/11/15. carb issues and the fuel line popped off. so rebuilt the carb and replaced all the fuel lines. Now using hose clamps and put the filter in the tire well where it is supposed to go.

      Damn thing is an emotional roller coaster.

      Well, apparently my photobucket is restricted until I pay money. I know there’s other ways to post pics but I need to figure them out.

      I remember seeing those two bugs in Helen the other weekend. Very nice. I dig patina and clean interiors/bay. Ill probably do another bug in that style for daily purposes since show cars tend to sacrifice some functionality and comfort for aesthetics. Glad to see them on the road.
