Re: Fuel filler neck wanted

I may have used the wrong terminology. I want the rubber piece that the cap goes in to and it goes down inside the wheel arch I believe it has a smaller pipe that comes off of it too The cap goes into a metal tube which runs under the wing and nearly to the tank. I assume Peter has correctly worked...

Re: TYPE 3 FUEL PIPES

There is only one rubber line at the front. From the tank into the tunnel in the chassis. There is also the line from the back of the chassis along side the gearbox and up to the engine bay. Did you include that one in your engine bay change? The beetle filler next is different to the type 3 one. Bu...

It would seem that theory was mostly wrong. I dont know why but something about the block was bugging me. So I sacked it off. Here is a shot of the roof which I used the flexi block with 1500.

Looking very clean and straight! I must admit to being a bit slow. I hadn't realised you were actually in Australia, I know its titled aussie car. But when I hear "mid west" I think of America. It was only your cold and wet statement that made me realise you were south of the equator

Ive had a bit of play for an hour, I think its a combination of some primer scratches and needing to go to 2000. Ill pop some photos on later but I have managed to get a patch basically scratch free and but with some swirls. Im kind resigned to it being a 6fter. But as long as I can get the rest of ...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

The marks are showing up after colour sanding, Had a quick read, so maybe 4000? Though marko says 1200 and the guides id previously read say 12-1500. G3 even states it will remove 1500 grit marks.
