      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

      Yes, I will be driving the Mans car. Kind of a poor adjective to reffer to a beetle but considering its comparison in this situation I guess it fits.

      That speedo cable attatchment looks cool. May have to grab one of them shortly.

      I mounted the lights today and replaced the rear bumper with one that wasnt as messed up. this one has to be scrubbed pretty good, has lots of oxidation.

      Saturday drove it to sugar hill ga, about 100 miles each way.
      The tube from the fan shroud to the heater box blew off and got lodged in the crank shaft pulley. other then that it did great.

      Today I replaced the exhaust for stock, that was fun, as I was tightening down the intake bolts one broke. I was almost done too. Had to take it all apart and do it again. Also got the heat working. The new exhaust makes a huge difference. The last exhaust was leaking, she now runs better!

      Just wanna say thanks for the awesome read and great progress of your bug. This makes me miss my first VW and car. 62 canadian standard, I'm pretty sure your thread has kick started my want/need for an air-cooled again! I find myself looking on samba forums and the kcw forums for inspiration and also too see what's new, if anything, in the scene. So I just wanted to let you know haha.

      Your car is a real inspiration- Mine is fairly straight, but someone primered over it. After reading your thread I have though seriously about ways to try to get down to the OG paint in hopes it would look a fraction of patina'd like yours.
      Good job!
