Hey, I'm new to this forum, I own a small VW repair shop and found myself wanting a project, just did not know it was going to be a 5 month project. Bought my 22FD from ebay with a bad engine, fans, a/c compressor, generator not working, rigged wiring, broken exhaust, rear axle replaced with trailer axle, seats that were stripped, etc.. you get the point. The only thing working right is the guy had the transmission rebuilt and installed 16k miles ago.
Bought a used running motor locally, tore it down, rebuilt it, changed a million parts, now it drives and passed smog. Working on interior now and figuring out a ton a broken, cut, moved parts. But all in all it will drive again and it won't look to shabby either, I hope. I keep you posted.
The biggest issue that was weird was the "shower drain" was hit hard and broke of a chunk with the tub, I fiberglassed it with lots of marine silicone, and it will work fine. Working that long up side down is quite the annoying task
