Re: Heater channels.

I started my own fabricating of my heater channels. But when the KG channels came up I just did a bit of looking for the info on them. But I think I,ll carry on with my own ones. http://i1093.photobucket.com/albums/i433/beetle661/Fastback/DSC_0166.jpg http://i1093.photobucket.com/albums/i433/beetle6...

Re: Heater channels.

I was offered a set of KG heater channels, and wanted to find out how much modification was needed.

From the information I,ve managed to find, I,d say I,m better off sticking to my original idea,
of making up my own sections.

I,m well into my resto now, but loads and loads more to go :)

Re: Instruction Manual for Type 3

Is it a car owners manual, or a workshop manual. If it was the workshop manual, I might be interested?

Heater channels.

Ive just been offered a set of karmman ghia heater channels.

Would they be suitable for the fasty , and will they need any modification. Or
am I better off making my own as I intended to do originally. Thanks

Spring Plate angle?

Any tips on maintaining the correct spring plate refit angle, with the suspension on the bench. AS its not fitted to the bodyshell, is there any way of establishing the correct angle, from some datum point off the suspension frame itself. I have scribed and punched the original unloaded position on ...

Control arms removal

Without having the vw tool 276a,

Whats the next best method of separating the control arms from the front torsion bars.

Both arms are off of the bottom of the beam, but still attached to the torsion bars.

Thanks

Re: Type 3 parts supplier

Ran it by him, and he says he can do them no problem. So he wants to know whether its polyurethane resin bushes, or polyurethane rubber bushes that are needed. Apparently there are numerous varying densities of both products available. So any input on the type or density best suited, please chime in.
