Split werks

Today I cut out the left sidepanel from the '52 split.
Because of some bad repairs, and a loooooooooooot of bondo, the only thing to do was weld in a whole new one.
This week we will start fitting the sidepanel, welding will be done next weekend!

147.000, thnx!!

Did a lot the last days, but a lot of stuff you don't see on the car :)
Gascable, chokecable, Wired the engine, fuellines conected, mounted the wipers; small things, but it needs to be done also!
today I mounted the left runningboard, rearbumper and bumperbar, venttrim .....really starts to look like a car again ;)
Some teasers, more picture on my oval page

Oval time!

Today we picked up the oval from the painter!
I told overybody that the first thing that I wanted to mount was the tacho; so that piece went in right away :D
And after that the speedo, the ashtray, the glovebox, the steeringcolomn..........damn, bulding up goes fast!
When we keep a tempo like this, the car can be at budel, you never know ;)
Here are the first pics from today, a looooooot more on my oval page!

When we bought the split, the windows were stuck because they were hold up by a piece of wood in the door.
When you tried to get the window upworths, the last 4 inches wouldn't go any further :(
So today I took averything apart, and I noticed the gears were worn.
And for a 60 year old car, those things are hard to find, and when you find one....it's expensive!!
So I welded some new teeth on the cogwheel, and it works perfect now!
After re-installing all the parts we mounted the "new" splitwindow doorpanels, nico.....thnx!!

City of Doel

Just to stay out of Volkswagens for a day, we went to a small abandoned town called Doel.
This small village lays next to the nuclear plant, and that's the reason everybody left that city years ago.
Really sick to walk around the empty streets and have a look in the "immaculate" houses that are left behind.
But........if we ever want to do a photoshoot with the '52 or '55, we know where we have to go!

Fresh paint for the oval !

There was a small delay because the original L275 was really hard to get.....but the inside is painted!
Probably the outside is painted too at the moment, but I hadn't have time to have look today.
More pics will follow, and pickup will be wednesdaynight!
