Re: 1957 Oval

While I'm getting ready to pull the motor again on this beetle, I thought I'd sort out the passenger door latch/lock/stricker plate issues. I put WW aftermarket ('60-'64) latches this bug when I first got it back together, but I discovered the aftermarkets were crap. I sourced some used '60-'64 Germ...

Re: Sean's '59 Panel

Picked up the longblock from Bruce on Friday. I really can't say enough about Bruce's attention to detail on this little project. He exceeded my expectations. Bruce kept my costs down, but still managed to do those little detail things that make an engine build right. He even sourced (at low cost) a...

It seemed there was a fair amount of seepage from the main tra...

Re: Corona 3rd Thursdays

I may have spoken too soon. I've got to make sure I get ahead of some of my home improvement projects. Big changes over here. Hopefully I can make it. I'll know more by tomorrow night.

Re: Front door corner vents

You need to contact Chuck or try http://bustedbus.com I'm sure there are LEAKOIL members with Bay window buses that have those vents in their stash of parts, but they need to be motivated to go through them.

Re: Corona 3rd Thursdays

How about CLE area folks meet at MetroParks Lakewood (mouth of Rocky River) where we start the MetroParks Cruise and take Lake Road out past all the homes we wished we owned? :lol: We can even pick up Brandon on the way. :D Chuck can lead the Caravan! :lol:
