Default project: DaBabyBluFasty

picked this up a few months back,a nd have been doing little things to it here, and there to try, and get it to be a reliable ride. i have a few things that still need to be done, so far i have rebuilt the entire brake system, dialed in the timing, and still need to dial in the carbs

its a 73 VW type 3 fastback


i've got a new fender ready to put on

1700CC porsche motor






stuff that still needs to be done:
new carpeting
order the clear corner lenses for it
1970 type 3 tail lights(red/red/clear instead of amber/red/clear)
short shifter
ceramic merged header, and hidden muffler
air ride suspension
finish getting the bodywork done on it
repainting the car marina blue(too much work to do a color change)
