Brax actually swooped alot of stuff from us here in Helena. Ben relocated to Bozeman so I think he was trying to lose some baggage I think he dragged most of the beetle stuff out but might have some fenders and wheels left.

Found a set of fenders in Colorado via the samba for a decent price so they are on the way. It will actually look like a beetle! Im beginning to enjoy the samba...

Fenders showed up this box is huge! So I now have a complete bug thumbs up.

And found a wiper motor and a couple pieces of linkage in Helena on eBay and got that in today with an airhead attached to the receipt Volkswagen guys are the best.
I also had my fuel tank boiled and lined by a shop in laurel that I sell to.

Pulled the starter today to test it. It was garbage but anyway my question is, what is the thread and length of this stud? I've googled, looked in Bentley, and john Muir but come up empty.
