I'm still in love with the J-bug :mrgreen:
Fenders are looking good!
I'm not insane, my mother had me tested!
You should see their faces when I tell them that my VAG is aircooled, lubed up and ready to go! :mrgreen:

Kev!
Sucks bro!
You can stall the engine in the storage if you want and work on it, but my engine stand has the tdi in it.
Try BABO motorenrevisie on the van hogendorpstraat, Victor is a top guy and knows a lot about any engine, but flat fours aswell.
He did my diesel head and did a top job.

Thanks Hans .. I'm leaving the engine in he body and doing the repairs in situ, but I think I might have found a place to park it up and it's outside a workshop I can use occasionally so it might work out yet .. and the parking places are in a gated compound :) ... I'll call you later ...

Re: VolksRod - the J-Bug - Back from his first road trip

Berichtdoor radiotrib » ma aug 05, 2013 10:13

Home sweet home! Finally fed, watered and rested ... The first drive in a civilized car for three weeks sure brings it home to you just how elemental it is to drive something like the J ... Even a regular beetle feels luxurious :) ...

But we did it, and we survived ... 600 miles of round trip, 10 volksrodding and hotrodding mates, Bug Jam, Ace Cafe, a local hot rod meet and (almost) the supernats ... thousands of admirers, dozens of fans who had followed at least one of the build threads ... So many memories and adventures to treasure ...

And the J himself ??? He soldiered on through it all at motorway speeds of 130kph for hundreds of miles, through road torture on badly maintained surfaces, beaten up by potholes and corrugated concrete ... (read fender almost dropped off twice, front fender dropped off once, rear light and number plate dropped off once, front headlamp and number plate ripped off once, exhaust dropped off twice, gearbox front mount crossmember ripped off the welds) ... but thanks to help and workshop access given by Mike (Beelzedub), Matt (Beetlebudda), Nathan (Volksgeek) and Tony (Streetfighter on Rods'n'Sods) my fine little volksrod soldiered on through ...

I think can definitely call him a proper motor car now!

Here he is with Bert'n'Ernie - Bert'n'Ernie was one of the earliest high-quality UK Volksrods. Built by Matt Beetlebudda ... he's one of the J's all-time heroes ...

Re: VolksRod - the J-Bug - VW Action, Santa Pod, UK .. Yeah

Berichtdoor radiotrib » wo sep 04, 2013 18:49

This time it was VW Action ...

The organizers pay for showable European cars to attend .. free entry and free ferry costs ... I couldn't refuse. 350 miles each way and the J was a little champ !!!

Was a great weekend ... We saw Jidderbug again (the flat black Volksrod) and met Fugly for the first time (the blue one with the triple exhaust) ... Next year MORE RODS I hope !!!

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =1&theater

Enjoy the photos .. there were zillions of cars so I just did a few aircooled ones at the Everyday show and a few more at the show'n'shine. J won a consolation prize (Judges Discretionary award) .. Coolest Volksrod : .. in fact on the Sunday he was also the only Volksrod .. but the sentiment was appreciated :) ...

Thanks to Nij and the SC Outlawz for hosting me, making me feel like family, and putting up with my bad jokes !!!
