Jimi checking KG?

tiistai 11. joulukuuta 2007

too many things

well, i got the harley frame back from the powder coating, and i was stunned! DAMN it looks good, the frame is from my 1988 spotster harley, converted to "classic" chopper style, with hard tail, etc. check the picks.
The conversion is happening in voodoo metal, in malmi.
i have a 21" in front, and 18x200 in rear.

After the paint, the ghia is heading to kangasniemi, with the engine and hopefully with the kawell turbo-setup, the " sketch " is a bright black low KG, with a new interior, ercos with a 2,3 liter turbo-engine. show & GO!
if everything goes well, its happening "next year" (slug´s trademark) ;-)

Karmann goes to the painter!

"Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black"
Mika Sarkela will pick the KG tomorrow, to re-spray it in the "one and only" color.
i have allready an awesome new interior to the car.

Kawell for Karmann?

in not sure, theres one sick idea to put a turbokit to the Rothmans Racer, to get some extra speed.
The best place for the kit would be the Ghia with 82x94 engine. it should fly. :-)
the kit is coming just before x-mass.

size does matter!

My Auto-craft heads will be modified in Saukkola city, from 94 mm bore to the 101,6 mm pistons and wbx bolt pattern, i would be happy to get them also to use water for cooling...
P/C setup comes from in january 08.
the crank will be 86 or 88, and the block comes from oxyboxer-vizard... pekka laitinen from kangasniemi

The KID!

Jimi was born in 09.06.2007, and he has been checking out for the bigger toys...but maybe next year he will be reach for the handlebars...Jimi will have many to play around, if he will like ´em.

Annika didnt like the panel van that much, maybe i was driving too fast , and playing around too much, but i hope JIMI will like it!

In the Harley side, jimi still needs some 1/2 meters more of legs to controll the bike. :-)
but the attitude was right. thanks for Jussi halonen to take the picture.

KARMANN GHIA 61 guts no glory

The Ghia, is under contruction, i wanted to take the stereos away of it, and to put a new original iterior in it, change the colour as well, race wheels and a big engine...
its not that fast thing to do with loads of work, a 4 months old baby, and some other things to bother, well the Jimi-Kid, is not bothering that much, :-)

rothmans racer, going to sleep.

i desided not to get the van isnpected this year, its better and cheaper to do it in the spring. :-)
no taxes etc. The splitscreen is now in our cottage. and as you can see theres autumn in here.
check also my match race with santala, (the second time i drink Valtteri´s beer) in the youtube section...

Rothmans panelvan is on the road!

the brakes are from Porsche, and they are awesome. its a blast to drive, but it needs a bit more power, at least 100 hp. i had a matchrace with valtteri "automatic" santala, and i won the races. second time...heheh.

(that beige panel is not santala´s)

I will pick up my "little piggie" from mantsala
to our country place, and start to fix it.
it was a museum piece,
but its not anymore... :-(
electric sunroof, recaro-seats,
fuchs wheels and a five speed...
...i hade so great time with this car, that it deserves to be in a better shape again! ...the biggest issue is the engine.

VW open 2007

i made a clip of it, Jussi Jyranko with his split was the fastest vw in VW Open!
check out also cal look forum for details...

At heebas place

Every yard should look like this!

racepanel > in here

Rothmans racer is in here


The Ghia is pretty good, better than i thought!
What it really needs, is some washing, waxing, new interior...and lots of POWER.
if you have new locks to the doors, i will be interested. :-)

In the evening i went to Heeba´s place, to bar-b-que party and see some VW drag DVD´s,
it was fun, thanks to Heeba!

VW-action weekend!

What a weekend! first i took my Auto-craft heads, and some Porsche turbo brakes, went to Luftsick garage, to see what is happening...jyrki was testing PAUTER big block to his oval, huh...i need one too! then i drove to mäntsälä city, to meet Jussi Jyrankö and Pekka Laitinen.
Pekka came to pick up my Rothmans racer panelvan, after that we went to pick up my 61 ghia.

The ghia was better than i thought, and with giant amp, in the rear seat...huh. theres gonna be some serious rocking...

I made an order to TMI interior, to get new panels to the ghia etc. and i ordered a blue cover to the panelvans seat...
