Re: West coast fab tour 2014

It has more protection then the Austrian hafi so it it is his to drive. He is not fearless like most kids his age so he will do fine.

Re: Laplander C202 Volvo

I fear the price is reflective of all the cancer this little truck has.
I would love to pick this up and add it to the collection but the amount of custom pannels that would have to be formed and fitted would take me hundreds of hours. Something I am not prepaired to do at the moment.

Re: Wanted To Buy in Las Vegas 710

Personally having owned both, the 710 is faster on the freeway but the 712 is more stable both on the freeway and on the dirt. Moth are relitivly slow compared to a modern vehicle. In the 710 I would drive 60 to 66 and the 712 55 to 60 mph For NV weather I would go with a M but a K would prevent mor...

Re: Wanted To Buy 712 or Volvo 304

I am assuming you have done your homework on the differences between the Pinz and Volvo trucks and know how hard parts are to source for the latter. Scott at EI does not have any listed on his site in San Fran but has resources to find them. I suggest you contact him first. Also in case you were una...

Re: For Sale San Francisco Bay Area 73 712W Craigslist link

Any particular reason no pictures of the truck? Kinda hard to peak someone's interest if they can't see some shots of it.

Re: Shifter linkage

Re: Exhaust re-do

Very nice write-up - thanks! Who did your ceramic coating? I want to do the same thing some time. So did you leave the front connection of the flex couplers to the headers just clamp on? no exhaust leak there? Did you also have the flex coupler ceramic coated? The slotted bolts are interesting - ha...

Re: Haffie Engine Issues

You can take them off in the truck a bit harder but doable. On top of removing the cooling tin from the head and cylinder, make sure you pull the pushrods as unlike a VW they are angled and will keep the head from being able to separate.
