thanks Smiley
bin to a Birthday Party of a good friend which turned out to be a nice small VW meeting with about 25 cars.

Did any of you European guys try the new Ahnendorp Customsport Exhaust system? I am thinking about buying it...

After a few years of driving I did some changes this winter.
I got rid of the old stone chip protection stuff that was cracked all over. Sandblasted and painted the rear fenders from the inside which where never treated before. I still need to apply the new transparent stone chip protection form Timemax. I Converted the 67 to 12V and have installed a freshly rebuild gearbox.
Now I need to finish the new 1835 single port engine, install it and dial in the jetting Grin
And finally I got new wheels, first series Ronal wheels with 165/65 and 185/70 instead of 145/80 and 185/80.
That should increase the corner speed a bit on our small, windy country roads.

Nice Looking wheels!
Is that a stock oil cooler youre using in an external position? Do you still have the og unit IN the shroud?

    Steve nice looking 1967 you have . The type 4 oil cooler you have do you have it with a shield to protect it from rocks or road debris. Also what is your oil temperature with this cooler on .

    Take care

thanks Frenchy,
I haven't tested the oil cooler setup yet, with the old engine I had a different setup.
I am planing to protect the cooler with a perforated stainless steel plate.

two shots in the evening in front of my garage. Still on the old wheels as I have clearance issues between the Ronal wheels and the dropped spindels. I will try to sort that this week (set front wheels to 1 negative camber plus 4 mm wheel spacers plus some grinding on the lower trailing arm, I hope that works).
Anybody having the similar issues with dropped spindels and 15 inch wheels?

Nice car. The bottom trailing arm can be reamed deeper to allow the ball joint sit further into the arm, just another option to gain some clearance.
