2- Clean out the dual carbs to keep her running.

When is this planned? Ive got two Broncos to build (1 ton conversions) in the next week or so, but might be able to spare some time to help out.
I have my own welders (MIG and TIG), I can weld, and am fairly handy with some tools. I'd probably pack my own anyway.
I can say, that I have never tackled this type of project, but if you know whats going on, I can weld anything together that you point to.

i would be interested in helping mainly because I could learn a little about VW's. (appreciate the offer for tire repair kit and or recovery strap, but I would be interested in this mainly to help and learn, not for the stuff, so you can pass that along to someone that could use it).

Besides, I live in Claremont, so you are right down the road. Literally, right down the road.

Pm me, and maybe I can swing by and take a look see at what might need welding, or just post a time and place, and I can do my best to help out.
Perhaps since I am so close, some work during the week might be better?

I would be willing to help out, I just need to get my bronco finished. Ed is gonna be helping me with that but once done, if its a weekend Im not gone Im there to help out. Do you have any idea as to when yet? This weekend is hopefully the finish to my 1 ton swaps, the following I am in Vegas for my buddies bachelor party and the weekend after that is still up in the air but its possible Ill be up north for my sisters birthday.

Since Class 5 is out of the question, where are you cutting it to replace the front clip? Is the pan staying intact? VW's were the first 8 vehicles I ever owned. Most were cut to baja..

If this is done in July, might be able to stop by and give a hand.

I can br around for thr build dates. Thats far enough in advance to gather tools and make sure we have enough stuff to be succesful.

I can also be around before this, I eat at the Tenderloin often. I live just above Baseline off of Mountain Ave.
You are just a stones throw away.

We could meet prior, even if just to meet and grab a beer.

Let me know. I'm willing to do what I can to participate.:thumbup
