Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

That's what it is supposed to be about right? driving and enjoying them!

How has the weather been in Denmark?

The weather has been the best in all the years I have been here as far as sun and warm, but the country is not set up for it need rain and the temperature could go down a bit. No A/C anywhere. so just have to go for a ride.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

It looks like that fits fairly well. How is the height for sitting?

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

They fit pretty good.
I need to drive it a bit more to figure out height.
It makes it a bit close with the stock steering column, with a tilt no problem.
I will probably drop it down about an inch, have to wait and see.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

It will have to wait til spring I have it hibernating at a friends place just to keep it warm and dry. About 2 hour drive one way but free. Planning on doing the rockers and bit on the floor kick panel area front passenger seat and see what else shows up. I thought I had a T5 from a 88 F body but dident work out. Makes it difficult not having a dismantling yard closer. Everything has to be transported to a container then shipped then customs 2 months later I get to play. I am thinking a T5 1352-176 or a 1352-196 would fit the Burb perfect. Problem is they areŽnt around for a couple hundred so they end up under a grand here. Be nice if I could bring one home in my suitcase.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

I sympathize with you guys in that part of the world not having somewhat easy access to parts for your trucks. It is getting tougher here for some parts as so many people are so willing to scrap 'old junk' cars and trucks and send them to China.

Yea most of what got brought over even in Sweden is getting sent back to the states because there just are not that many left. We just have to keep them alive.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

Cool 'Burb!

I just read through your build thread and saw you are from Danmark. My Pops is from Danmark. I still have cousins over there but my bestefar, bestemor, and aunts and uncles have all passed away.

Sub'd for future updates from a half breed here in the States. 😎

Yep

Last time was in '98. I got to see my Aunt in Soro? And my other aunt just south of Alborg. I went back in '85 as well but I was pretty young on that trip.

Re: 62 Burb project in the making.

Been slowly starting up after the winter. Got the heater all fixed up new ranco valve in and all is good again. Got the passenger seat from the Astro van in as well. Been working on a buddys 62 stepside most of the winter, he is getting it ready for the customs evaluation and then the tax, hopefully the same as mine.

First race of the year Test and tune Malmo Sweeden, trying out the new clutch on the Jr. with team members. Good excuse to take a drive.
