My couch keeps trying to get away so I am holding it down as part of my lockdown duties.


@r_towle - well done, the last thing we need right now is a bunch of couches running around in the wild. Thanks for doing your part.

I recently purchased a 1981 Rabbit Diesel Pickup with 14,500 original miles. Shipped from Idaho using Intercity (great company). I've had to go over the entire vehicle to lube and check everything since it's been sitting for so long. My '82 succumbed to the rust worm and it would cost $15000 just to make it "safe"! I'm almost ready to put into service. All I need now is a new battery and install a bed liner.

Assembling the engine for the 68 911. It’s going faster than spending an hour a day after work. No pictures yet.

Charlie



Details on engine please.
Alum or Mag case ? etc.etc. racy ?


It’s a 75 2.7S that I bought from Fred about 35 years ago. It had a broken exhaust valve on #4 but did not have a boat load of miles. I rebuilt it with Mahle 2.7RS P&C which I bought 30 years ago, 68 911 (911L) cams, 40 Weber’s. Should be fun in a light car.

The car is all steel except the rear bumper, plastic rear and rear side windows, RS carpets with no sound deadening, old plastic Speedster seats, 911R style dash. Just the basics.

Dave,
Do you want an AC evaporator for it? I have the complete unit, minus the controls just sitting on a shelf in my garage. I have never owned a VW Rabbit, but my father worked at the Fort Worth plant that built the AC units. He actually designed that evaporator. They hung the first one down the line on the wall as a display. When the plant closed, they took it down and gave it to him. I got it a few years back when he was cleaning out his garage. I have no use for it. It's yours for the cost of shipping.

Heard a Dr. on TV saying in this time of Coronavirus staying at home we should focus on inner peace.

To achieve this we should always finish things we start and we all could use more calm in our lives.

I looked through my house to find things I’d started and hadn't finished, so I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of wum, tha mainder of Valiumun srciptuns, an a box a chocletz.

Yu haf no idr how feckin fablus I feel rite now. Sned this to thuzl who need inner piss. An telum u luvum. And two hash yer wands, stafe day avrybobby!!!

Keith,

Glad you enjoyed it. Humor is good for the heart!

We’re facing unexpected challenges; a good time for personal and eternal reflection.

Blessings,
Jerry

Thinking of building a kitchen/yard waste compost bin out of scrap lumber. Have a few 2x4s and some chicken wire looking for a job.

Not as fantastic as your project Rory,..but I found an old storage bin of my grandfather’s. A lick of paint and a label maker later. It passed the time today.



Now that is a picture of beauty!

I just realized that your signature lists a Fokker D7. That is really cool. And I have to say "Can we get pictures of that Fokker!" (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)

I'm doing a complete suspension rebuild on my 911; all bushings, new ball joints & turbo tie rods, rebuilding the steering box, alloy front calipers, new rotors, new pads, hard and soft lines, bearings, seals, tumbling everything to look pretty, powder coating, plating bolts. Basically, better than new. I also recently moved, so now I park in my "Batcave."

Got em in the rafters but will be installing in the next week or so. Has a long way to go but at least it moves under its own power. I've been pushing this thing around for years!

What a coincidence ! I saw a beautiful black convertible today, roof down, nicely lowered with tasteful modern rims.
It was outstanding.

Been putting the finishing touches on my teardrop trailer. I just have some headliner material to install on the interior and then it’ll be ready. I built everything from scratch. Aluminum trailer and the body is all foam. The entire thing weighs 200-300 lbs. I built it to tow behind anything.
