Kafer Bar (aka the stiffy) from Cool Rydes for the Beetle. Been meaning to get one of these to support the framehorns for a LONG time. Gonna finally install one before the motor goes back in this time.   #veedubnut     #tractionbar     #coolrydescustoms     #vwbug

Work on the mechanicals of Herman is progressing. The body is ready for final paint and he should be ready to move under his own power, for the first time in 43 years, by the end of next week. Paint will be first week of September.   #autocraftengineering     #funkygreen     #airmighty     #airmightymegascene     #splitbus     #deluxebus     #klassicfab     #hotvw     #hotvws     #hotvwsmagazine     #hayburner     #a1exhaust     #hayburnermagazine     #wolfsburgwest     #wolfsburg     #kindigitdesign     #grumpysmetal     #23windowdeluxe     #coolrydescustoms     #volkswagen  _combi   #buttysbits     #Genuinea1

Herman got some fire protection. It protects 25 cubic feet which is more area than the engine and fuel tank compartments combined with no motor or fuel tank in them. It's not cheap but it's cheap insurance.   #autocraftengineering     #funkygreen     #airmighty     #airmightymegascene     #splitbus     #deluxebus     #klassicfab     #hotvw     #hotvws     #hotvwsmagazine     #hayburner     #a1exhaust     #hayburnermagazine     #wolfsburgwest     #wolfsburg     #kindigitdesign     #grumpysmetal     #23windowdeluxe     #coolrydescustoms     #volkswagen  _combi   #buttysbits     #Genuinea1

Well Herman's brake and clutch masters are now hooked up to a new bullet reservoir. I only have a few brake lines to make yet and it will be time to add and bleed fluid.   #autocraftengineering     #funkygreen     #airmighty     #airmightymegascene     #splitbus     #deluxebus     #klassicfab     #hotvw     #hotvws     #hotvwsmagazine     #hayburner     #a1exhaust     #hayburnermagazine     #wolfsburgwest     #wolfsburg     #kindigitdesign     #grumpysmetal     #23windowdeluxe     #coolrydescustoms     #volkswagen  _combi   #buttysbits     #Genuinea1

For the first time since 1976, Herman has a running engine. Happy fathers day to me! Tonight I'll have a little celebration. 👍😎👍   #autocraftengineering     #funkygreen     #airmighty     #airmightymegascene     #splitbus     #deluxebus     #klassicfab     #hotvw     #hotvws     #hotvwsmagazine     #hayburner     #a1exhaust     #hayburnermagazine     #wolfsburgwest     #wolfsburg     #kindigitdesign     #grumpysmetal     #23windowdeluxe     #coolrydescustoms     #volkswagen  _combi   #buttysbits     #Genuinea1

Some polished aluminum brake line clamps to keep everything neat and safe. Man....I need to clean the dust off the underside of Herman!   #autocraftengineering     #funkygreen     #airmighty     #airmightymegascene     #splitbus     #deluxebus     #klassicfab     #hotvw     #hotvws     #hotvwsmagazine     #hayburner     #a1exhaust     #hayburnermagazine     #wolfsburgwest     #wolfsburg     #kindigitdesign     #grumpysmetal     #23windowdeluxe     #coolrydescustoms     #volkswagen  _combi   #buttysbits     #GenuineA1

I was not a fan of the A1 Sidewinder exhaust dumping under the body and pointed at the ground, so I had Tiger at A1 send me some parts to modify the exhaust. So I did this. I like it much better. Sanding continues. Ralph came and did some sanding while I assembled some drive train stuff for him. Thanks buddy! 👍 I'm also fitting the Klassic Fab rear bumper. It needs a lot of bending and fitting to be Herman worthy.   #autocraftengineering     #funkygreen     #airmighty     #airmightymegascene     #splitbus     #deluxebus     #klassicfab     #hotvw     #hotvws     #hotvwsmagazine     #hayburner     #a1exhaust     #hayburnermagazine     #wolfsburgwest     #wolfsburg     #kindigitdesign     #grumpysmetal     #23windowdeluxe     #coolrydescustoms     #volkswagen  _combi   #buttysbits     #Genuinea1

I got the engine in this afternoon and found the the Berg linkage was sitting crooked, it's due to the aftermarket fan housing being made wrong, and it's too busy in there. Anybody want to buy a Berg linkage for 48 IDA carbs? I'm going to go with a CSP center pull type I think. The engine tin color will be changing to something else this winter as well.   #autocraftengineering     #funkygreen     #airmighty     #airmightymegascene     #splitbus     #deluxebus     #klassicfab     #hotvw     #hotvws     #hotvwsmagazine     #hayburner     #hayburnermagazine     #wolfsburgwest     #wolfsburg     #kindigitdesign     #grumpysmetal     #23windowdeluxe     #coolrydescustoms     #volkswagen  _combi   #buttysbits

All the panels are in but I need to install the motor so I can fine tune a little more.   #autocraftengineering     #funkygreen     #airmighty     #airmightymegascene     #splitbus     #deluxebus     #klassicfab     #hotvw     #hotvws     #hotvwsmagazine     #hayburner     #hayburnermagazine     #wolfsburgwest     #wolfsburg     #kindigitdesign     #grumpysmetal     #23windowdeluxe     #coolrydescustoms     #volkswagen  _combi   #buttysbits

More progress on Herman. My 8 inch diameter VW Brazillian brake booster finally came in from the UK and I got right to work fitting it. I still have some mods to fab up but it's getting closer! Yes....the brake booster installation needs s little fine tuning. You can also see some details that will be hidden once the bus is ready for the road.   #autocraftengineering     #funkygreen     #airmighty     #airmightymegascene     #splitbus     #deluxebus     #klassicfab     #hotvw     #hotvws     #hotvwsmagazine     #hayburner     #hayburnermagazine     #wolfsburgwest     #wolfsburg     #kindigitdesign     #grumpysmetal     #23windowdeluxe     #coolrydescustoms     #volkswagen  _combi   #buttysbits
