    In case of emergency...

    Yep. May have been a momentary lapse of judgement. No need to jump on the knee jerk mandatory training bus until all the facts are in.

    In case of emergency...

    Sounds good but what is weatherman? How do I get on it? ???? The first SCORE race I raced I did not even have a radio or know how valuable they are. That list Fish listed is good reminder for everyone but leaves out a ton of info for a noob. You can't have it both ways. Either train the noobs...

    In case of emergency...

    I said I was too old set through a "new racer orientation or safety training". I continuously educate myself on the latest safety and technology updates and would be happy to be educated in more advanced topics. I think most veteran racers would agree training should be appropriate to the...

    In case of emergency...

    What I said was perfectly on topic. The OP said too much time during the mandatory drivers meeting was spent on promotion. I pointed out it is necessary. To expound further I do not think the mandatory drivers meeting is the appropriate venue for "new racer orientation" or safety training. Us...

    Bunderson 2-1600 project.

    My new seats arrived and they fit perfectly. You may notice these seats have some wiring with them. Yes, I ordered heated seats. I need my comforts. I'm old and soft 🤣

    Bunderson 2-1600 project.

    Here is some picture of the new fuel cell. The old fuel cell was rectangular so there was a metal platform the the cell sat on so the shifter linkage and throttle cable could go under the cell in the tunnel area. With the new buggy cell I don't need the platform anymore so I cut it out and made...

    Bunderson 2-1600 project.

    This car had a mix of bus, Super Beetle, and type 3 brake parts. It was a pain. The backing plates and brake shoes are super beetle. You are correct the brake drums are from a type 1 or type 3. I can't recall at the moment. Both these cars seem to have the same setup so it appears this may be...

    Bunderson 2-1600 project.

    Rebuilding the SACO rack next. The end caps were missing so there was a lot of sand and dirt in the grease but all the parts seemed to be in fairly decent shape. The teeth on the rack were ever so slightly deformed so it needed some persuading to get it out of the body. Once I had it out I...

    Bunderson 2-1600 project.

    Time to rebuild the front end. I don't know squat about VWs so this is like a 3D jigsaw puzzle. I know this car is old school. For now since I have never driven one of these buggies I'm just going to put it back together and play around. If I like it I'll upgrade to the latest 2-1600 spec...

    Bunderson 2-1600 project.

    I needed to figure out what to do with the fuel cell too. The old one was not in good shape. The bladder had completely broken down and disintegrated. I was able to determine the fuel cell was made by Fuel Safe. I checked online and unfortunately it did not look like this can is a standard size...

    Bunderson 2-1600 project.

    There is not a lot of room in this chassis so I had to go and measure some seats to find some that would fit. None of the demo seats would fit. There was interference either in the tunnel area or at the door bars. Finally found some measurements online for the MasterCraft Pro seat and it looked...

    This photos show the chassis after I took any remaining front end parts off and got the front half of the car painted with silver Steel-it. Completed painting the chassis.
