      93 miles logged today, at some point the battery decided it either didn't want to take a charge or generator decided it didn't want to give a charge. But it ran great!

      226 miles logged in about 24 hours.
      The battery was charging today but when the lights are on it doesn't.

      Voltage regulator?

      The orange super with the twists? Yeah that was sick, but my fav. was the black beetle with the red wheels and white walls. I immediately fell in love. My buddy actually took first in the vw watercooled division this year.

      well deserved.. hope you got the drool that I left on it after the show. I wish I could have met you tho, I literally stared at it for about a half hour. Dual port and stainless steel door panels ugh, im envious..

      Thats quite the trophy you got there. Almost as tall as my 2 year old.

      I checked that car out, I belive thats the w/c my wife voted for. And that show aint much on custom cars I got lucky and the said it was not overdone for a beetle.I was tryin to explain patina look vws to the chairmen of the show. he said they just looked like rustbuckets to him last year. Did you see the convertable 51 benz on bags with the smalblock chevy in it? black car across from the w/c's? He lives down the road from me. took bout two years to build and 250 to 300k. no prize but the 300 sl at the front of the line is worth well over 1 mil. show is basically for well restored euro cars I just like going and if I'm there I may as well let folks look at my car and enjoy meetin them all. Hate I missed you dude we must have been voteing when you were there cause we talked to folks bout all day.

      You guys have any pointers on wiring the reverse lights? At first they will be non functioning just for looks.

      I don't know how you'ld put a rev. switch in there. I know ya need to run from the coil to the switch to the lights (toss an inline fuse in there) but how to mount a switch I don't know....switch from a 67' maybe?....Tim will know
