Is this thing done yet??
After some facebook stalking, it turns out I used to work with the guy who bought your old bug

Loving the colour! Motor looks good in the hole too, going to be one cool bug
Is the cream....... just for the wheels?
Have a look now @Seedy Al it might make a bit more sense now.
Cheers @maxted she sure is coming long. So happy with it so far.
You are a masochist son.
Great progress man, putting me to shame!
Axles got longer about 67, I put a 1500 gearbox in my car years back and swapped the axles so everything would fit back together the same.
found this on the samba
I think there may even be another size for different models/years etc.

Shit, just remembered a sharn, was at a party about 10 years ago, had the red ragtop there. got talking to this cunt, talked about car/vw's with this guy, said how various engine's are stuck in the back of bugs, subys etc, then I said rotas, and he's starts telling me nah nah mate, not rotas, these gearboxs can't spin fast enough for rotas, I said well I've seen it done and I don't think the gearbox cares how fast its going?( to a point) wouldn't believe anything I said so I agreed to disagree with that dickhead.
is it finished yet?

Gear train itself might be fine but 100% the factory Synchro's and clutch release will not love high RPM shifting.
probably fine if you are not expecting lightning quick gear changes...
Its all in the name of brap.
Just got home from Greg's- first I did some terrible MiG welding and then helped cover the terrible welding with fibreglass wrap (phew)
