      Started to replace the upper pulley. Figured out why the old one came apart, the shaft was stripped. Then proceeded to go buy a new alt and take everything apart to get it out. got everything out and all the parts swapped to the new alt, now I just have to put it in.

      it's a 69 export-bug that should have been shipped to the us but stayed in netherlands where i bought it from the 1st owner - so i am the second. though it was in a pretty good shape i decided to modify it to pre 67 look. i's painted "pastellblau - L391". right now, i didnt have any time to shoot any pics. but i promise, i will open a thread after finishing all and after cleaning it up

      yesterday i put on the swan-neck-mirrors to the doors that usually used to be on a us-car (chevy, dodge or something like that)
      this evening i will put in the rear carpet and the backseats. tomorrow and saturday i will hopefully be able to put in the window regulators so i can roll out with a completed bug this sunday.

      everything worked fine yesterday rear-carpet and backseats are in - the heaterboxes have been connected to the wire.

      did a one our night cruise to check the front beams and the heater-boxes-function...Result:

      Today i hope to be able to put in the window regulators and the door panels. this would be the last thing to do on my bug until its finished completely!

      Yes, I have a copy and they cover supers in there as well. some repairs are the same then when it differentiates it branches off to your specific model.

      Washed the pollen off the windshield, added some oil and drove it all around. Yesterday was the first day I had driven it pretty much all winter. I popped a fuel line at a mini-mall, but my pal brought me some. I forgot how much I love to drive my Beetle.
