    Pretty excited. Had the beetle running and let it do its own thing for a solid 30mins just sitting in the shop. No water trying to escape and make a mess in my shop, no oil leaks, nothing out of the ordinary and the oil cooler is good and the radiator is working well. Old mate matt said "all we need to do is get it starting when hot" and then it started up easy as normal start up. Fucken so happy! Such a good feeling.

    ahhh so reunion is just around the corner so i thought id better do something with my car. - Oil cooler - Fix front seal - Get new water pump housing - New water pump outlet - Cut front of beetle up more - Nut and bolt check - Polish and clean - Finish Upholstery off - Put door handles and window winders on (not just hot glue ya egg) - Make passengers door open easy - Make radiator better - Buy gas - Do some braps so went to do the front seal. yeah that will be easy right. went and visited pat and gav at hpr and came home with this lot so removed the seal and rang a guy to ask about timing and what not as i had the front pulley off and well yea im able to put it on at all sorts of angles and he said what ever you do dont do anything i will be in the afternoon. turns out when you take the pulley off the chances of the bearings dropping are high unless you have your foot on the clutch. well yeah we didnt do that off with the front housing oh hello bearing i see you have dropped off. there is ment to be another little thrust tube in there but had removed it already at this point. it was at this stage i had to shoot to the drs and my worker and old mate matt worked on the beetle and i came back to this all back together and matt has timed it up as well. we put a helicoil in the far end of the water pump as well for alternator to bolt to. this is where my last water pump housing was cracked and was leaking. also painted them to look all nice and match the engine. now im on the hunt for a polishing bit for my drill so i don't have to hand polish everything since it hasn't been done for two years since the beetle got built. note you can see where i did polish and where i haven't polished. hopefully hear from Tim at old TTT engineering saying that he has welded up my pipe and i can come get it so i can start this thing up this weekend.

    Would be able to fit a bunch more scooters in the garage if you sold it I guess?
