Day 32 - An extra set of hands!

This weekend Caroline was in town and she offered (errrr I asked?) to work on the bug.  We prepped some more bolts, nuts, and washers.  It was a tedious process, soaking them in Evaporust, wire brushing them clean, running through taps and dies to get the final grime from the threads out.  Then we cleared over them for some rust protection.



We also continued to blacken some bolts, including a new one we needed for the negative grounding strap.



Finally, we ran the clutch, accelerator, and emergency brake cables.




Transaxle should be done this week, but Mom will be in town and I leave for training the week after, so progress for the next 3 weeks will be nil to slow.
