Breaking point

At our trip to the US back in the fall I stumpled over a complete rear set of 356A brakes at a very good price.
So while we drove around with them in the trunk some good friends turned up with the missing front pieces. So while they were shipped to me the rear ones came home in my luagage.

And after some work all wheel cylindres were restored and there were new lining on the brake shoes.

The front ones is allready installed on the oval and the rear ones goes on a restored gearbox that I have lying, and it will be going in the oval in a couple of years.

Webasto winddeflector

I recently found one of these Webasto winddeflectors. I had the Aeroflex one allready but I thought this was more cool, and it´s always in the car unlike the Aeroflex that you have to have inside the car when it´s not in use, or lying in the garage.
Biggest issue with the Webasto was drilling the holes in the roof, hey I did it.

If you look in the pictures you might noticed that I also added a Hella fan. This one was found with a homemade bracket so it mounts behind the rearview mirror, I guess some clever guy made it back in the days as he wasn´t happy with the suction cup mount.

Bling bling

I just got myself this rare set of crome covers for bumber brackets.
These aren´t easy to come by, and I had my mind set on a pair of these at Camberg but they were missing the mounting brackets, lucky me a complete set just turned up and I got it :-)

Picnic table

I recently bought this picnic table on ebay.
The ad is from Gute Fahrt 1953.
Only problem now is that I need to move the swf washer bottle, otherwise the table won´t fit in there.

Beautifull Budel

Once again we hit the road to drive the 805km to the Budel show.
This year only 3 cars as Thomas was riding with me.
Even though the weather wasn´t it´s best the party and the atmosphere was superb as always!
We had great fun with our Dutch friends, and even a couple of americans dropped by.

I didn´t buy much at the swapmeet as I had Camberg the following week end in mind.

Dyno session

This past saturday we went up north to a dyno day arranged by the MIB club.
I was pretty exited to see if the Expree motor still could perform aswell as last year,
and it sure did! It now produces 53hp and 101nm so that´s a little better than last :-)

Jens also had his bone stock motor on the dyno and it made 32hp and 85nm.
So now these 2 cars is ready to hit the autobahn to get to Bad Camberg.........

I did find a few parts on the swapmeet, but one of the highlights was I got a ride in Andi´s ( 1950 Hebmüller.
