    VDub emblem is still MIA.
     
    One of the last things I need to do to finish the plumbing is the coolant lines. That's pretty far to go from front to back, I decided to cheat and have the lines go into the rockers and the rest would be internal and hidden from site.
    The two main pipes being shaped.
     

     
    Here's where they meet up with the braided lines off the engine.
     

     
    Here's how they fit in the body. I do believe the steering box and arm will just clear the lines. If not I'll have to make a shim for it.

    I'm almost done with my current one, but depending on the timeline I could be in. I have plans for one more kit to be used as a tow vehicle and at least another body to be used as a trailer.
     
    My current build.

    The Brake lines are done.
     

     
    The fuel lines are almost done, I made the filter out of some scrap rod and tube.
     

     
    I started on the radiator hoses.

     
    And made an old style Accel Supercoil. I sanded a piece of scrap rod to have a slight taper to it, ranf 4 pieces of .060 half round to square it up some, and made the top from  some .030 scrap. I ran a small rod through the center of the tube, drilled the top and used some Styrene Bondo to mold the curve into the top. I need to paint it yellow.

    The emblem is still MIA.
     
    I made a quick set of disc brakes. I didn't go crazy on them as you have to look pretty hard to even see them in the car. I cut two circles from .030 sheet and cast the calipers from a set of Pegasus disc brakes.
     

     
    Then I started the plumbing. Beading wire for the lines, #1 crimp tubes for the fittings, .060 half round with a slot cut in the back for the clamps, some scrap rod that I drilled for the tee fitting, and some small diameter wire jacket for the flex line.

    That's already in the works.

    It did the same thing only slower to lock up. When it finishes the scan a window pops up with the things it found, it also opens up a website, it's at the point that the site opens that it locks up. In safe mode it couldn't open the site, but still locked up. It was the delay on opening the site in safe mode that let me realize that is where the problem could be.

    This thing is pinning the coolmeter! Great ideas and execution.

    Thanks for those measurements Eric. I don't think think the Deeks will work, just a tad to small. I ordered a set of the Tom's 505's.

    I decided that I hate the gas tank. I've got a new idea, 1/2" tube, clear ends covered with the VW emblem from the front. I need to strip and fix this one, then I'll cast a pair in resin.
     

     
    In the time it took for me to put the tank and mounting bracket together, I lost the VW emblem. I hope it shows up before I knock it on the floor and the chair rolls over it or I step on it.

    Holy Cow! Rogue Killer found 70 some things that Malwarebytes didn't see. Unfortunately for me, RK locks up just seconds after the screen comes up with the files it found. I have run the scan about 5 times and have been able to get a few removed a few times before I get the "Not Responding" message. I'm down to about 36 left, but I'm tired of running scans right now.

    Thanks Casey. Wouldn't it be a good idea to pin it?

    The wheels and tires I'm using right now are smaller than most cycle wheels. The inside diameter is 5/8", outside diameter of my rim is 11/16", would you know if Herb's centers would fit?

    What file extension do you need it in? I have two versions of PSP and could export it for you.

    I can't find it either. I did a search on the site for some PE stuff, most of the relevant answers suggested looking for the list. So where did it go?
