Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

I visited an old VW dealership in the middle of Wales this week, they had a diagnostic machine at the back of the workshop. The chap there said it hadn't been used for 30 years, and looking at the layer of dust on it he was probably right. Do you happen to have a contact number? Would they be willi...

Re: 1972 fastback. nwe 532k

You are right, those paint fumes wouldn't take much ignition once they are nicely atomised!

This is the sort of thing ive used, it has a pan function so it sweeps back and forth across a panel for uniformish heating.

Good attention to detail Broady.

Did anybody ever actively use the diagnostic socket :)
Pointless attention to detail is what got me where I am today!

I hope someone did, I expect VW did at a few product launches at the very least

Re: Diagnostic Plug

One that particularly interests me is how they monitored compression, I assume that was something to do with the FI set up Yeah, that was quite interesting, though I don't see why it should only be used for FI engines.

Are you planning on making your own diagnostic computer :) A couple of guys are using arduino to create GPS based trip computers for the T25's I dont really know what im planning, I just wanted one for the novelty.

Diagnostic Plug

Im not desperate for one, Just curious, does anyone have the diagnostic plug for one of these? I assume its the same thing across all the VW's of the period?

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

It seems to be the lack of oven, the panels are baking nicely with the IR heater now, Im not too frustrated, its nice to move back to more mechanical jobs and theres nothing to stop me colour sanding it when it warms up next year. My local powder coaters just got a nice new oven which I might see if...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

Well as good as that rear panel looks, the rest of it is causing some bother. Still being left with scratches and swirl marks in enough places to upset me. I flatted the boot lid right back once again. I expect its my last chance before I get through to primer! https://d0lqnw.am.files.1drv.com/y4mQp...

Great news, sounds like a fairly small project, ready for next year then :D I wouldn't bother with flickr unless you are prepared to pay. Samsung have recently bought them and as from January next year there will be a hosting fee once you have more than 1000 photos on there. I suppose it will depend...

Re: First 68 fastback

So its your first fastback rather than the first 68 fastback off the production line?

Whats the long term plan? do you have any photos? Are you modifying anything, what colour is it/are you going for?
