Thanks.
Here are some shots of the custom oil tank I am mocking-up for Seth to build.




The tank will hold a bit over 3.5 gallons and will fill and vent from a opening flap cut into the outside of the truck.

Here is a shot of the rear support for the hitch and shock mounts from the last visit to Seth at Twisted Minis.


Some parts for the oil system, Fluidyne front cooler that will be cut into the front bumper.

Bravo! Simply awesome.
To your fabricator: congratulations, sir! That exhaust -- usually we find that the simpler it looks, the harder is was. If it looks easy, it wasn't.
Great build.

Thanks guys for the kind remarks.

Fishcop, I have been following your thread in the bodywork forum and am using it for technical and mental preparation for when I tackle the body and paint on the d.c.

Turbokraft, I am sure Seth will appreciate your remarks as one pro to another, I know he puts more effort into the build than my compensation can cover, but thats what talent and integrity can make people do.

I have been working on some small stuff until Seth and I can get the dry sump tank built.









The seat base and back will get foam and vinyl covering.

Here are some shots of the dry sump tank, test fitting before Seth does the final welding.
It is a stock Patterson tank that has been "adjusted" to fit in its new home.

Here are some more parts to the oil system, the vent and fill will be cut into the side of the truck and covered by a vented teardrop blister thing.




Seth is metal forming the blister from the rough shape made by pressing thin aluminum sheet in a wood and epoxy form I made.

I found a photo of the form before I poured the epoxy to make the negative part.

Thanks!
Here are some shots of the front cooler, lots more to be done to this part.






I have also been working on the electrical system, the dme is mounted with rubber standoffs.

Thanks Lukesportsman, I just wish I could have made it as light as a RS bumper, but in a early type 2 you need all the help you can get!

Here is some cable shift action.



Mostly done , just needs some detailing.

Thanks again for the encouraging comments.
Some more progress on the electrical front.




I am adding six switched and six always hot fuses in the new engine bay, I would like to do a complete re-wire in the future but this should work for now, the stock vw wiring still works but has a lot of unfused circuits.

Some more slow but sure progress, the electrical system is finished and I ordered the last of the oil system -16 fittings.

I ordered four fittings and five feet of hose to get the dry sump tank hooked up so I could put the engine in.

All the wiring will be wrapped after start-up, keeping it open till tested under power.

The seat base in position, 1/8" clearance to idle valve.

Working on the engine tin, front mostly done.
