Re: Dutch 412 Variant, in VW Ultra!!

Hi folks, I am back... I know it has been a while, I'm sorry for that. I have some updates regarding the engine.
It turned out that the old lifters couldn't handle the new cam, so last summer I decided to open up the 1795cc....
long story short: I am building a 2.4 type 4 now....

Re: Dutch 412 Variant

Indeed, it is pneumatic. And it took some cutting and welding to put the new shocks in place ;)

Re: Dutch 412 Variant

To take the caravan to the meetings I mounted High-Jackers (load-adjusters), to trim the rear suspension. Once mounted, I took my trailer for a testdrive, and it felt much better than the worn shockers. Trailer for a testdrive. Looks like a trailer-king instead of a trailer-queen :lol: http://www.ke...

Re: Dutch 412 Variant

A black rubber trim wil be mounted on the bumpers, so I think that would look nice on an orange bumper. Same thing we did on ur white german beetle. I just prefer body cooured bumpers:-)

Re: Dutch 412 Variant

Well, the project is not really completed. Interior needs to be built up, and the bumpers still need some orange paint. But yes, it felt great to drive a 412 for the first time!!

Re: Dutch 412 Variant

Last week I relocated the battery into the front. The original place was underneath the driversseat http://www.keversite.nl/fotoalbum/fotos/124914.jpg http://www.keversite.nl/fotoalbum/fotos/124915.jpg All connections of the cooling and heating are fixed now: http://www.keversite.nl/fotoalbum/fotos/...

Gotta love the Kamei spoler! I've been thinking about installing one. Could you take a picture how it looks like from the side when the car is back on the ground? Well, it took some cutting and heating to fit the spoiler, and it does need some more work before it really fits properly. When the spoi...
