Damn man this thing is looking great!

Love the way the bay looks.
How'd you mount the rad, just longer bolts?

The only Dick that made my mouth water. Thank you sir.

Well. When I went to his place, I'd Usually end up getting more than one...

I made some "C" brackets out of 16 gauge sheet and I lowered it a little because the cap was hitting my hood. I have a sheet under the hood so it had no room for the cap.

I may have to take the rad out again and if so I will take pics.

Why dont you pull that grill out and notch under there to fit fan,you can use stock mounting holes and there will be more clearence. I did it and its the only thing i  did that is cut per say.

MrBig, I must not have the slimist fan available. To get the rad flush for me I would have to cut into the area right before the chrome trim. So I decided to make brackets instead. Also when I was going to use the radiator on the 69 I had to lower the rad because of the piece I made that covers the bottom of the hood.

The matchbox was probably not a deal, but I was prepared to pay. It was the main thing I went there for. It was the last piece I really needed to have a running motor and I have not been able to find one anywhere. Paid $180.

The tail light is the one I was not happy to pay. I even said no the first time I picked it up. I even left and went to the warehouse to start working and then I was thinking about it and then decided if I have to do a vin inspection I don't want a broken taillight, so I went back with a friend. He drove us back and guess what I left me cash in my truck. He had no cash on him, so we drove back to my truck and back again to get the damn thing. $100 and I don't even like these taillights. This guy pricing was crazy high even by what I'm used to seeing. He was the guy all by himself in the back of the lot.

I will think about it. I value ur input. After seeing a few of the 510's yesterday I'm gonna have to step it up a notch to keep up. Your eye for the details is something i count on to make the right look.

So a guy I did some metal work for on his bus found me yesterday. I was really looking at this 510 and I hear my name being yelled from somewhere. I like wtf I don't know anyone here.

So turns out 2 years this guy sold one of his vws and bought a 510. He told me about it back then. At the time I didn't care. This is the one he bought and restored, now I'm jealous.

Saved the front hood. This is a test fit. It needs to come back off so I can glue the supports and at least paint some black on the backside.

The lower apron is really nice. Wish I could use this one on the 69.

I'm 3 for 3 on trucks missing prop rod. But this time I have the spring and the bracket is still on the hood. I looked for one at the swap but didn't find one. Took some pics of some in 510 and made one.

Here is a prop rod listed on ebay.  I have personally bought parts from Yenpit and have had good experience.  He is a Ratsun member so contact through Ratsun and save some time maybe.

I also deal with him through Ratsun now, I bought a couple early 520 taillight assemblies from him in the last month, he is a US seller, he is not overseas even though his name would give you that impression.

Jay has a lot of good shit also, but he wants a lot of money for his stuff, but it is all NOS.
