Well hello there

Postby Minispdrcr » Wed May 18, 2011 10:02 am

My name is Marcin. I live in NW OKC and well just aquired this 1965 Squareback "N"

Well this will be a fun project :) need to redo the carbs and find a linkage for them.

all seals on the windows need to be redone - anyone know how to do that?

Also any clue where I could find bumpers?

Welcome! Before you do all the cosmetics, like I told its previous owner, worry about brakes, that'll cost you.

Now I get the rare scirocco bit! Didn't do anything with it?

How's the mini?

I dont care about cosmetics right now as much as getting it into driving condtion.

Need to change window seals as they leak like no other.

Already got a brake rebuild kit in the mail, should be here today I hope. Will begoing out and buying all new soft hoses and new fuel lines.

Scirocco went to a better home...There was just WAY to much to do with it. This I can work on and get going quicker :) ...Plus I was always a sucker for the Squarebacks.

Mini is great :) Had it on the road a few days ago...but I need to clean and adjust the carb...again. Its getting old.
