Some of you know that before going to Bug Jam that my motor took a dump. I have been running a spare motor from the shop while I built a new engine. I finally finished it today and got it in Very Happy It seems to be running great and just needs some carb. adjustments which I'll do tomorrow. I will post some pictures up soon.

It is a 1600 SP
balanced stock VW crank
lightned flywheel
stock cam
ported and polished (by me) stock heads
high rev valve springs (for ratio rockers down the road)
CB Performance rods
I rebuilt a orig. VW fuel pump
I also rebuilt an original 31 pict round bowl carb.
lots of powdercoating Cool

I miss the the Number 53 pulley, but everything else looks great! Hope it runs as good as it looks, and Happy Holidays to you, Charity, Eli, Faith, and Hannah!

Just got a set of HID's finally. They make such a difference it's unreal. The best part is I found these from a company locally here
in Lawrenceville for $65. Yep...$65 Cool Here is a picture after I put the first one on. You really need to see them in person though. I know the pictures are crappy but it's raining and I don't want to get the camera wet.

Whats up....?

Smile
Nothing really. Herbie probably isn't going anywhere. I have just got real tired of trying to keep the paint looking nice. Everytime I wash it I see a bunch of new chips or some stain I am having trouble getting off. It is just a pain to keep the flat paint looking good.
I got mad a the other day when I washed Herbie (and found cracks in the paint) and when I came home I saw a Bug I liked on The Samba. I sent the guy a email and he liked Herbie. We met on Sat. in Greenville to see about doing the trade and I couldn't do it. Once I saw Herbie on the road being driven by someone else I said NOPE!. I explained to the guy and he understood and Herbie came home. I figured it wouldn't hurt to put an ad out there and see what comes up. You never know and it doesn't hurt to look Very Happy

Well Herbie went to a new home today Sad That was the only car I have ever really had a hard time letting go. He will definately be missed but I enjoyed every minute I owned him.

Kiss good bye Sad
