John, I have been working. Just haven't took the time to post here. Figured it would be of no interest. I began working on my 48 and then the struts puked on my daily mk3. #-o #-o So I have been working on it.

New BFI control arms with r32 bushings and new ball joints.

Raceland ultimo coilovers waiting to go in.

The old strut nuts were froze so I had to break out the air chisel and that damaged my upper strut caps. Image

So I ordered new thin nuts since they were froze too and new caps from ECS. While waiting on the to arrive. I bent my from bumper brackets back in shape and replaced the front bumper cover.

^Nice job cleaning up that suspension.

Choke housing got kinked while putting the Ghia motor back in last weekend, and despite our best efforts to straighten it out it was still binding badly. So I just installed one of those spendy lowlight choke cables made by TheGhiaGirl off of TS. It slides like butter now. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ No photos 'cause it was a pain in the ass. Smile
Meh.

This was a hoping thread a while back... but we stopped doin work eh? Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink[/quote]

Still working. raising kids. or doing uninteresting stuff like timing belts and water pumps or yard work.

Lacking motivation, my back is killing me. every time I go to do something like I used to, I pay for it later. Doc says I should look into an inversion table, since they seem to have to pull me twice a week.

Thinking back, I have done some metal work to the Bus.

I finally set it on the ground last night a 1:30 am. #-o

First drive to work today. Let the coils settle a few days and check strut nuts for tightness and adjust ride height to level. Then go have the new tie rods installed and four wheel alignment. Then get my new tires swapped over to the stock alloys.

I think it looks better. Smile

Yep, I had to replace the worn supension to make it safe for my 5 yr old son . I have to pick home up from school sometime. I couldn't go stock :-& , what's the fun in that? My daily needed work but now I will be back to my split. It is still sitting on stands with my stool behind it where I stopped the oil change to order sump cover with plug and gaskets. ](*,) parts are here so now it will be a matter of time between honey do's. :-"

So, I spent Sunday going to the front range to pick up a project that I had made a deal on years ago. It started as a father/ daughter project that stalled when Charles got sick. I agreed to buy it, but then Charles couldn't bring himself to let it go. A couple of years ago they all moved to the front range, and sadly Charles got worse. A couple of months ago Brandy contacted me to let me know that Charles had passed away a while back. She and her mom had been talking about the bug and wanted to know if I was still interested. Of course I was, so off I went to retreive it. Still sort of rough and needs lots of work, but has a ton of good bits with it. I had expected the 57 Oval to be my only keep it forever bug, but now it looks like I'll have another.
