The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity

 It's been a month since the last post and a lot has happened.

As documented earlier - the car showed up earlier than everything else and had this massive garage to itself.
Then all of the 'stuff' showed up.
A couple of weeks later, I got the garage organized and it's much better.  It's nice having a large garage with high ceilings but I've somehow still managed to fill it up.

Other things to note:
  • I listed up a bunch of parts for sale and sold a decent amount of it.  
  • I made my money back on the NOS parts group that I bought.  
  • A CSP Python exhaust is on order because I decided to not dump any more money into the Vintage Speed exhaust.
  • I have a VW show to attend on Saturday - haven't been to this particular show in at least 3 or 4 years.  
  • Nothing has been done with the car because I am ambivalent about working on the car...or driving it but maybe a proper exhaust and carb tune will change that a bit.

Still on the table: Swap out the pan boot and adjust the bowden tube by a washer.  I should also swap out the warped wheels for straight ones.  I'm going to keep the warped wheels and use the centers for custom wider wheels someday.  Some day.
