After the last drawbacks it was hard to motivate myself, but finally I got something done:
There are some parts which have to be updated / changed and modified. I will mount a special adaptor from company "Beetle factory" to change from "non-guided" to "guided" throw-out bearing!
The starter bushing and fulcrum plates will be exchanged for new parts as well as the plastic-"daysies"
Currently I am changing the axle tubes from "wide" to narrow", as I want to hide the 5,5" rims under the rear wheel wells without any modifications.
The body/chassis seal found its way onto the chassis, glued on with Sikaflex:
Tomorrow I will visit the paint shop to check on any progress... I will keep you updated...
