Kuch's Lowlight PMG
Kuchster - November 10th, 2014 at 09:48 PM

So here is my 72 Lowlight PMG project. Ratter. Yet another one during another resto, however this one won't need too much work. Need to sooth my kombi withdrawals..

Some of you might remember it from Eddies Barnawartha auction.. ("What do you want that for? Its a heap of shit.")

Turns out to be one of the most rust free busses i've ever seen

New shoes..

Made up some jigs for pressing in and out the ball joints

all I can say is that you must have a sickness. Maybe not a bad sickness to have, but none the less a sickness :lol::lol::lol:

Look forward to seeing the end result :tu:

Nice 72 lowie.

Even the bulkhead hasnt been hacked out and I liked the sunraisias on it - the wide 5 wheels wont fit without a few mods but will look good.

Seems another great score from that auction.

Correct. 1972 model year manufactured in 1971.

Watch out Kev, could be contagious.. haha.. or maybe its already been passed on....

Time to get back on to working on the bus, after a little motivation from the vw nationals, and trying to fit it in amongst a very busy lifestyle..

Tore down the beam, narrowed to fit the new wheels correctly

Testing the Kuch's 4.5 inch drop plates on the rear

How you don't want to find your crank when you pull down the engine

Rust on the rear quarter, due to a very leaky battery, rusted out quite a bit of this area

Wheel arch lower

Made a tool for the centre pin bush on the beam

Pressed in new ball joints and correctly pressed with the VW peening tool to secure

Made this adjustable height caster wheel system, fits both split and bay, also available on the laser website.

Started in the battery tray area tonight

Lovely 2 piece crank Kuchster!
That's a pretty solid looking crossover
Can't wait to see the end result
Want to come weld our Lowie when you've got time?
