Are you going to paint it "Moai Blue"?

Damn. That sucks - definitely loads of work there, but also lots of potential!

It must just mean that there's a better one out there for you somewhere :D

That stinks, but it was a wise choice. I'm all about the 75% discount 75%-finished Craigslist project. They are out there.

I'd stuff a fresh crate motor in and drive it on nice days. (and flat roads until the brake hoses got swapped out.)

It's only original once. You can't restore patina.

30 years ago, sure! But have you seen the price of a crate VW motor lately? Agree with you about the patina though.

You mean you can't get type 1 long blocks at the swap meet for $200 any more?

Change the oil, soak the carb, file the points, weave on some new spark plug wires, and go

Can't see the images, by I see "VW", "too work much right now" and "mixed feelings". I think those come standard with each one! :pieface:
