actually my Dad mentioned tubing.... welding didn't work, metal bondo failed.. JB weld to the rescue. The rim no longer leaks air, now it's a matter of do I trust the rims to actually drive on them Question

Haha, I was gonna suggest jb weld too.
Not a lot of pressure on shotty rim, should hold up with the jb, and tube could still be an option, if it starts to leak again. (imho) Just make sure inside rim is smooth or lined.
That bug is gonna look sweet ... thanks for sharing build

First time out in the light

clouds on the roof.. or the paint is wavy Laughing











with the tar board... which I meant to put in before placing the body on the pan, but didn't





Then spent some time getting the garage sorted and re-organised





It all fits...barely

Ran into an issue with the brake lines... they are 480mm in length, but at full turn they bind

Can you check and see if the caliper brackets need to be swapped? This might bring the caliper to the rear of the car? Caliper looks to be on the proper side (L) but hard to tell from the pic. This will then in turn put the bleeder at the top where I think they are supposed to be ?

good call ... the brackets are built into the spindle but the calipers are an easy swap over

So after some reading on the samba... the L and the R on the calipers actually seam to mean L for Right and R for Left... go figure
Flipped the calipers and now the lines have enough length at full lock

Done a few things to the car lately but this thing is just no fun to build. In the interest of building something I might actually like.... i bought back a manx clone that's in the exact same state it was when I sold it 5 yrs ago Very Happy

back to the car that deserves to be pushed over a cliff Evil or Very Mad
