Anyways, sorry for the sideline about Unique. Let's talk about my trip to Car Craft. As I pulled into the parking, I was greeted with a couple of beautiful sights: a nicely restored oval window rag top Bug and a mild custom Super Beetle cabriolet parked in front of the store. It's always a beautiful site to see some nice VWs in front of a shop and inspire the customers to what they can do with their VW.
As I entered the store, I spotted at the counter my former co-worker Brock Jones working the front counter! Brock had started in the VW business when he came to work at Unique back in the mid '90s when I was there. I helped Brock to learn a lot of the parts and we always got along great.
After doing some catching up, we got down to business. I explained to him what I was working on (the Bug and the Imp) and that I needed a few parts. Every part I inquired about Brock was able to supply me. It was a good trip!
The parts list from this run:
- shift boot, quick shift kit, and shifter lockout plate for the stock shifter Ashleah will be working on
- set of 16 lug nuts, washers, and screw studs for my Bug so that I install the Dan Gurney wheels that Erik and I will be polishing up
