Nice work! I would love to have access to the machinery in the pics!

I see that you moved some of the pics from photobucket to thesamba. I've been thinking about starting a new gallery here on germanlook, that supports full size images, since cloud storage is so cheap.

Forrest,
I used to be in Seattle a TONNE, visiting Blake at NorthWest Auto Salon. Warwick used to have an office at Dirtfish, and I was out there six or seven times a years...but since moving to the island I make the trip only a paltry two or three times a year.

I will be in Seattle early September for Global Rallycross, and then passing through to Oregon middle of September for my CCA Hagerty Fall Classic event. Could definitely bring the Rally Bug down to one of those events.

Get your GL project finished in time for the Fall Classic!

-Dave

Yeah I really hated using photobucket. The sambas gallery interface is super easy. You can upload a bunch of pictures all at the same time, and I can do it directly from my phone which is a major plus as thats what I use to take all the pictures.

Ill have to make an effort to see it, and check out your event. Seems as if you are a big car guy like me. I am Richard Griot's shop foreman at Griots Garage if you have ever been to our headquarters in Tacoma. I manage his collection and maintain/restore/fabricate along with about a dozen other hats. If your ever in town and want to see some very rare and unique stuff stop by and ask for me and Ill show you around.

Forrest

Hahahaha, no way. We probably know many mutual friends/contacts!

I will definitely add a shop tour to my next trip's agenda.

The last bit of the intake puzzle coming together. Had to go with the pie cuts for........ consistency sake with the rest of the build s

I made a fitting that slips over the MAF with a very nice interference fit, and welded the tubing to the inside to start the piping. Everything is tacked together but I ran out of argon over the holiday weekend so I'll have to finish next week . The tubing will get a silicone coupler to mate up with the throttle body. You can see the welding wire I bent at the same curvature as the decklid so I could guarantee fitment.









Happy New Year!

Looks nice but I think you'll need to allow for more movement than a silicone joiner so short will allow and you will end up damaging the MAF..

You can buy hump hose in silicone that would give you some movement

How about putting another silicone bit where the MAF is, or in the middle where you have a straight bit?

Just an idea...

Feels great posting after all this time..

Cheers
Chris

Ive switched gears a bit and am working on getting my new front clip figured out before I weld it to the car. Working on some support while maintaining airflow and I also made a fan shroud for my Spal puller fan.

I made a simple hammerform for the front clip piece, I used a bead roller for the radiator raised section and pre-stretched the area with an english wheel.
