chassis

allright, some things i still need to do before the body can be placed in position : -braided steel brake lines, bleed the brakes, adjust the upper left king pin, mount engine, connect the handbrake, find a correct tie rod for a 59 beetle( the ones in the shops all seem to be wrong, the conus is different and i can't find a correct new one) and that's about it.
