• They Look Great!

    Good Job!!!

  • I own a Duchess and I removed my ballast box a few years ago. It was filled with pea gravel and it was only secured with 2 angle brackets that were screwed into the wooden top of the fiberglass box and then to the wooden frame just under the front of the trunk, by the grill. I removed the rocks and the box lifted right out.

    Hope this helps…

  • I haven’t seen anything about Knotts Berry Farm’s kit car show. I think they still have their Mustang and Fabulous Fords car show but I have a feeling that the kit car show is a thing of the past…Never the less, they are all closed up due to this quarantine. Even Disneyland is closed!!! I could always hear the nightly fireworks show, from my…[Read more]

  • Hey Gang

    I wanted to revive this old post regarding a West Coast meet up. I had started to put something together but we lost momentum and then life got in the way…

    As we’re all sitting at home on corona restriction, this might be a good time to revive the idea of a gathering. Besides, once again, Life has brought into focus the things that…[Read more]

    Dear Friends

    A couple years ago, I tried to get something going, here in California. There was just a little bit of interest, from some of our members, but then it fizzled out. I’d still Love to start a meet-up, out here, in the Land of Surf and Sun…Sure, it’d be slow to start but who knows what it could turn into…I’m open to any ideas and…[Read more]

    • I’d be interested in a western oriented meet, more especially if I could either car running and presentable again.
    • I was very disappointed to read…”This Item is not available for purchase”…



    • secretagentcat replied to the topic Fiber Fab seats in the forum VW Based Kits 8 months ago

      My kit came with a bench type seat but I’m thinking about trading it in for a set of VW buckets…Has anyone had any luck with those or should I just have my wooden bench seats redone? It sounds like some of you have had problems with seats…I wouldn’t mind sitting a little lower to the ground but not at the expense of being any closer to the…[Read more]

    • Hey Gang

      I still like my steering column renovation…Just like I previously wrote, I took out the old VW steering column and traded it for a steering rod. All the electric gets moved to the dash! It looks much more authentic and I have all the room me and my ageing pot belly need! LOL!

      I could’ve run the shaft all the way to the steering box…[Read more]

    • I didn’t like the way my VW Column looked all together, so I took it out and put all the electrical on the dash. I replaced the column with a steering rod and had a welder custom weld a release bolt just above the Crash Basket. Now it’s just a chrome rod that is mounted through a steering mount I bought from Socal Speed Shop! It works like a charm…[Read more]

    • Might I make another suggestion…

      Buying a title, online, or a junked Kit with a good title for cheap. then just move the info to the kit you’re hoping to buy…I’m too stupid to know any better but I plead the 5th and spread eagle and all that legal stuff…All I know is that sometimes, you’ve got to play as dirty as the bureaucrats to get…[Read more]

    • Good luck with the hunt! I had to part out a 29 Gazelle since I couldn’t get the darn thing smog approved and registered (Titled as a 99 special construction vehicle)! The guy at the smog shop told me “Hey, she’s a VW…If it’s not Smokin…It’s broken!” He thought it was funny, while I just returned home with my tail between my legs!

      Yesterday,…[Read more]

      I did the same, with my toy. Marine Grade all the way! West Marine is where I purchased my fuse panel (12 fuse capacity), relays, switches and even the wire! I’ve yet to have a single problem, since I rewired her…I also went crazy with grounding posts. All of my electrical items are on it’s own fuse, relay, and ground connection. I just check…[Read more]

    • I’m afraid I feel Violated just looking at it!!!

      She’s one Heck of a Ride!!! Congratulations!!!

    • Living on the coast, we get a lot of fog and I drive at night, all the time…And when it’s sunny, it’s real sunny!!!

      When it’s hard to see…I just tie a white stick with a red tip to the front bumper and get around much better! LOL!

      In my case, the top is almost always down, except when it rains so the sun visors would be little help for…[Read more]

    • Hey Everybody!

      I was wondering the same thing…My wife recently bought a new car and she doesn’t even need a key in the ignition! All she has to have is the key fob and push a button when she’s in the car! Then to stop the car, she just pushes a button. It’s pretty cool! If you don’t have the key fob, the car won’t start…I was wondering if it…[Read more]

    • I didn’t know that tanks were coated, like that. I’ve been looking at the tanks from SoCal Speed Shop. I’ll remember to ask, when I’m ready to upgrade mine…

    • So glad that no body was hurt. I’m so sorry to see all the damage but if it had to happen, I’m happy that it was with someone who knows how to get her back on the road…I don’t know what I would’ve done…

    • Way to go on making your dream come true! That’s the way to do it!!! Send us a picture, when she’s parked on the driveway!
