    Bet that was fun. The ONLY car I’d want in that group is that Bahama Yellow VW!

    And a fun to drive VW at that.
    450 mile weekend and here is the underside. Not one drop of oil. Just a little 3 minute wipe down of dust on the forward facing engine parts.
    I use these then a aluminum washer, then a nylock nut on every 6 and 8 mm stud. Oil leaks are NOT allowed. This engine has 15,000 miles on it.

    Next project for both my and Doug's dual oil cooler POLO cars.
    This Mocal thermostat opens all the way at 200F not like the engine and SC ones that opens at 180-190F. Mocal makes a 180 and a 200F thermostat. That way the car only operates on the passenger side cooler past 180ish, and then both coolers fully after 200F.
    Green - 180-200F
    Red --- 200F plus fully open
    The thermostat starts to open and close around 200F progressively as are the engine and SC thermostat. The point is it's doing it's thing 20F warmer.

    I got my parts from BAT. Waiting on the threaded pieces that get welded to the tubes from Elephant Racing. I think I'll have the tubes replated in clear (silver).

    Yesterday I picked up and had mounted my 10 hole 6X15 steels with 205/60/15 tires. I'm not sure how much I'll use them as they are heavier than the 6X16 Fuchs. I'll probably show the car sometimes with these as they give the car a little bit of the vintage racer look.
    I also have an extra set of red Firestone letters I might add to the sidewalls.

    haul,
    In the winter the car is on jack stands, wheels off to take the weight off the suspension.
    I spent the better part of a day with a compressor and grinder getting the welds smooth with about 3 to 4 mm caliper clearance.

    Here you go. The Sun's angle didn't pick up the wheels very well. I'll reshoot later. I just rolled it out of the garage. After a little road time Iím guessing it will settle a little. These tires are about a 1/2 inch taller than my 195/55/16ís. I have 5 mm spacers to clear the front Bremboís. I think Iíll take them off for the rears.

    We are leaving the soft lines off. Thus a smaller and cleaner install. The 200F thermostat and duel female an12 parts are 210 mm (8 1/4 inches) long. The weld on end pieces have gone from 30 mm by 1.5 to the an12 weld on parts so we can use the duel female an12 parts. We will make custom support brackets and a small tray to catch any seeping oil if there is any.
