How's the Beetle coming along?

I hate to think of you without a project... if you ever run dry here's a bit of inspiration:

I like the bus.

Enough projects going on, don't think I'm bored.

I picked up a set of 16 inchers 7 and 8 for the white SC, the car you saw on Saturday.

Here I have them already stripped. Paint and anodizing removed.



Lips are polished and taped for painting



Painted



Center caps restored



Ready for some new rubber

An other little project. Drilled door handles for Froggy

A while ago I got these door handles and finally I got around to do it to them.

I used some masking tape and marked where I want to have the holes. I decided on 4 holes.



I started with a 3.5mm drill bit.







Moving to a larger drill bit. In this case I made the final hole 7mm







I used a larger drill bit to make chamfer



Now rounding up the sharp edges with this little tool.



After that I used a little polishing tip and my Dremel to finsh it up.





Here is a picture of the chromed door handles. To be installed this weekend




Next will be the update of the extension of the Airboxer Garage

Fixing the 944

Had some issues. Found Oil in the cooling system, and some cooling fluid in the Oil system. This can never happen to my 911.

Here is what I did.

Disassembled the Oil cooler. cleaned it and replaced the O-rings and put it back together. Then I learned that Porsche recommends to replace the Rod bearings. Oh $hit.

Here we go:

Here is what I got my self into with this Water cooled car.

This is what the oil looked like.





I was digging in and now the oil pan is out, using this handy jack from the trunk of the 944





The rod bearings are out, and they don't look that bad, however, new once are ordered, plus the gasket, new rod nuts, new engine mounts, tie-rod ends, and bellows, extra oil filters, etc.



The journals look like new, So I hope I get my beater back together next weekend.



Still need to flush the cooling system and the oil system.

Cheers

Got it all back together, all looks OK. Flushed the oil and water system once. New Oil and filter in today. One more flush, and hope all it good.

More to come

What a pain. I've never seen an oil cooler fail like that but I have heard of it. At least it wasn't the head gasket which would have been my first guess.

I had an oil cooler fail like that in the Caprice.  Of course, my approach to fixing it was to buy a parts car.

The head gasket is what I was thinking also. After some research, a compression test, leak-down test, it was clear the damn oil cooler is the issue. BTW it was about $20 to fix the oil cooler leak, but about 10 hours of work.

I love my air-cooled cars.

Still, the 944 is a really fun car and I'm not giving it up. I'm just realized that I have more Water-cooled Porsches than Air-cooled once. I need to find a 930 to make it even.

The 944 is back together and I have my DD back. A few other items were also fixed, since I had to remove the cross member to get to the oil pan.

It's maybe a little hot right now without AC. Need to see how I can fix that.

However, back to the garage.

Here is what it was before



This was the idea



This is what it looks like today

Another little mini project.

I had this Corona clock floating around for a while now, and instead to just junk it, I want to make something for the Airboxer garage.

Weird clock!
Never seen a 20 hour clock before! I think it needs to be redone with Corvettes

Picked up a new project.

This will have to wait until the Beetle is done.

Love to see this new project you speak of. I'll wait patiently.

Is it Autox or street car based?
