Today marked the first day doing work on Ruy for some months. Whilst I am still waiting for my slot at the bodyshop, I was able to get on with sending the gearbox off for a checkover, clean and paint, so that it is ready to drop straight back in to the car in the future.
So, after some lift and shift help from Dan Chase (check out RSC Bespoke Renovations on Facebook kids) I took a trip up to Wisbech to see Robert Parry. A wonderful chap with a huge amount of experience and knowledge who served his apprenticeship with VW and knows air cooled VWs inside out.
Hopefully the gearbox is in good order and doesn’t need too much work, just a clean up, paint and then stainless steel nuts to add a bit of bling!
Until I get Ruy into the bodyshop, there will be very few posts, but do come back in March for more!
