The owner of that orange bug used spacers to raise the height of the Kamei spoiler about an inch. I think it works well.

The autoplas rear window louvres always go for big money. I remember you used to see them quite regularly on bugs in scrappys.

I've got enough clearance between the road and the kamei spoiler so theres not been any problem with speed humps at this ride height.

Need to replace the drivers side window reguator as window gets to 1" from the closed position and the winder just spins.
I've got a replacement that seems to be OK but it looks a right pain to replace with the door already built up.

Couldn't get it to idle once the choke had come off. Anything less than 2000 revs and it'd stall so i couldn't check the timing with a strobe or adjust the mixture either.
No vacuum leaks anywhere. Turned out to be a teeny tiny piece of fluff (about the size of one thread on a microfibre cloth) blocking the idle jet/shut off solenoid.
Once cleaned and reassembled it runs nicely and quite happily sits at 850-900 revs and also doesn't stall anymore when the throttle is snapped shut.
Timed it at 7.5*BTDC at idle with the vacuum hose disconnected and plugged, and with it connected and revved it advances nicely upto around 30*BTDC.
Seems to pull OK and return to an even idle too so i'll leave it like that for now and just take a 10mm spanner out with me next time incase i need to do some slight adjustment.

Can't post the video of it running so heres the Facebook link to it:

I've wanted one of these tyre pressure gauges as seen in this 1968 accessory catalogue for a while now. Don't ask me why, they just seemed a bit cooler than the modern digital LCD display ones.


A mate bought me this as part of my Christmas present.
