Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

A little while between drinks, mostly the same and same and same. So there arent many photos to show. Its just been a case of shaping up. My first focus was this little number on the front end. https://0a5wra.am.files.1drv.com/y4mFUu_3pfNvXiuNA5sUgfn53f6xhPgRY5gG0wrKmAhjeSVd2N8jjkHKz1A83Edp7YIVwHCRW...

Re: carbs whats the best

On a stock engine? I'd stick with the standard carbs to be honest. We'll sorted standard engines will happily do 70mph. If you want more power then its best to consider the engine as a whole.

Re: lowering

The inner spline is 29 teeth and the outer is 31 teeth so there is a nice vernier movement to be had of 5 minutes. So you can adjust it this way, or you can move the outer 1 spline. Which i seem to recall works out at about 1 inch at the end of the trailing arm.

Hope this helps

Once the panel is in, but before the black fresh air box is fitted underneath it you will be able to get a spray can of dinatrol in there to protect it. and id advise doing th...
