Changed the oil. RP 10w40 and some rosline Zinc and Phos oil stablelizer, shes purrin like a kitten.
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.
yes! my bug is now tuv approved and therefor allowed to roll on german roads for the next two years. had a gread 1st drive back home. for now, there's only three things left to be done...
1. carpet behind the backsats
2. window regulators
3. customized mirrors
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!
