Another test run...at 12psi. both of the little runs in the vid are
slightly uphill with some short shifts (I'm no racer) but you get the
picture. speedo marks are at the 20,40,60,80,100mph.
Karmann Ghia sheet metal patch
Cutting, bending, and welding in a patch to smooth out a fresh air vent for
a 1974 Karmann Ghia. Includes some hammering, mig welding and a bit of the
english wheel. I have tons of pictures on my blog:
1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my
wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I
know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was
installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is

1966 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Restoration
This is a 1966 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia I recently did the finish body work
and paint on. The sheetmetal replacement was performed by Kelly "Metwiz"
Brown. Color is Porsche Guards Red. The car is going back to the owner for
re-assembly. Music by The Wind-Ups.
This car was garaged about 44 years ago. It hasn't run since then, so it is
a bit of a time capsule. Most of the rust is cosmetic. Front end being
notoriously the worst rot zone of these lovely cars. Chase appears to be
solid still, as do the wheel arches. But a hammer test is in need for this.
It still rolls, but the breaks are binding a little. The engine hasn't been
turned over in all this time, so it will be seized no doubt.
It has a 6volt electrical system.
The original license plate is still mounted on the front and rear.
Video was taken with an iPhone and is wobbling for some reason. A selection
of photos are included in the clip which give further view.
