Track Attack 25th July 2012 Brands Hatch
July 25th 2012 saw the 'Track Attack' come to Brands Hatch Race Circuit..
the monthly Prept German Car meet was transformed into a spectacular
mid-week extravaganza with VW Heritage, Apex Festival and Cool Flo Vintage
bringing on and off track entertainment all afternoon and into the evening.
It was a huge success with thousands of enthusiasts passing through the
gates of Brands Hatch and completely filling the paddock areas with
displays of every imaginable style of motor.. from rat, to race, to restro,
modified, performance, retro and modern machinery.
VW Heritage transcended the epic 25th Anniversary celebrations last year at
the meet bringing more entertainment, features and partners together to
make this one night event something really special.
Big thanks have to go out to all the organisers, staff and volunteers who
made the 'Track Attack' such an incredible fun night and to the sponsors
Prept, VW Heritage, Apex Festival and Cool Flo Vintage.
Here's to next years 'Track Attack' extravaganza!
Can't wait for more of the same.. and MORE... Next up will be the Apex
Festival 2013.. if you like the mix of German, Race, Retro, Aircooled,
Watercooled with on track action including, championship races, exhibition
races, FREE track parades for all to participate in, and the popular track
day sessions.. then make sure you join our facebook page so you can be kept
up to date with the 2013 dates, venue and breaking news...
Restore vw fastback 19
This is a video of me and my auto mechanics students restoring a 72 vw
fastback. My middle son got a new camera for Christmas and wanted to try
out the video part of it so I thought we would give it a go. I found out
most of the idle problem. Jim suggested to spray some WD40 in the idle
circuit and see if it comes out both sides. Well I didn't have WD40 but I
had PB blaster so I used that. Sure enough it was stopped up with some
kind of trash. Unplugged that but it is still idling a little low so I
checked the timing since we swapped out the points. The timing is a tad
low. The Bentley says to line the third line from the left on the timing
marks with the center of the peep hole on the Gen belt cover. l l ll But
the highest I can get it is the second mark from the left. I can't go any
higher because the fitting on the advance for the vacuum hose hits the
generator. I guess I didn't get the distributor in there quite right
during engine assembly. Any suggestions on pulling that shaft out so I can
turn it a notch? The car runs good but not quite right as like I said the
idle seems low, the plugs still try to foul a little when the engine is
cold and it still has a random slight skip every once and a while as you
may hear in the video. Anyway had fun just putting 6 miles on it today just
circling the campus today.
Northwest Vintage VW Meet 2011
The Northwest Vintage VW Meet held at Shoreline Community College just
outside Seattle, WA July 16, 2011. Not even Seattle's crappy weather could
not stop this from happening. The Seattle Solar Fest was held next door to
us (yeah, the rainiest day of the summer) which made parking tight.

Volkswagen Jetta Removing Rear Inner Door Panel - Part 3
In this video, the inner door panel or as Volkswagen calls it, the door
carrier assembly is shown being removed. There is a lot of detail in this
video where I describe the spreader pin and spreader plug. This two piece
nylon insert holds the window to the lift rail regulator slot. Also, to
bring you along with me, I did not cut out the scenes which showed me
struggling to remove this two piece insert, although with video editing,
this step would look easy. I hope you enjoy the video and thanks for
