      I'm off to change a starter, raise my rear one click and hopefully find a exhaust leak....

      Nice build so far sam. im def. going to need your knowledge on my 72, decided while im saving for the new motor i would start stripping my interior. A tad perplexed about how the front seats come out...

      Oh btw, whats the number for Lee, I believe you said was his name.. the guy who was rebuilding that 1600cc?

      I highly doubt I'm going to make eurofest.

      Justin, thanks! The 72 is different then the early models but this is the first one I have built. The concept should be similar just with more wires. I just dove in, asked questions where and when I could. OP

      for no go to euro fest.

      I did figure out the seats last night actually, so now im good to go. I did find a treasure for my beetle tho, a full complete wiring diagram for the 1972 model from front to back. Im about to dive in myself. Turns out I need a new floorpan. Luckily they arent that expensive.

      Been to eurofest once, didn't really care for it. A little to upper class for me.
      Thesamba.com is a excellent resource center. Should have a wiring diagram there.

      I agree there is alot of upper class folks there, but its a cool show to see cars you aint gonna see anywhere else. I dont mind the folks too much, i've learned you will never excel in life any futher than the people you surrond yourself with.

      Yep been going to the farm since the early 90's. it's a father /son thing we try to make it every chance we get. I was glad to see they went back to all a/c vws now and got rid of the w/c and import crowd. no offense, just most import crowds are not as laid back as the a/c folks. I guess I'm old.

      Not sure how old you are but I myself am 35. I must agree though that the watercooled leaves a little to be desired. They have given themselves a bad rep. I do however appreciatea tasteful waterpumper though.





      thats my cabby

      Yea, I dont much care for the party scene. Did that when I was 18. I tend to lay low.

      can't wait for the rain to stop so I can replace this stupid starter. I brought the drivers side back up to "2 notches" still need to do the passenger side. fix a exhaust leak that occured during exhaust draggage and prepare for the next thing to go wrong

      One of the most annoying things from my standpoint,
      Driving my cabby (because its reliable), see a bad ass aircooled, beep and wave, no response....

      that sucks Not all watercooled people are douchbags. I try to make a point to wave at watercooled enthusiasts when I am driving my beetle (even though that has not come up very often)

      zzzdanz that was not a insult toward you (or anyone directly) because I am pretty sure you were joking with your statement.

      its not that we think water-pumpers are douchbags. its your driving as chick car mang. yes i thinks its a nice one but its still a cabby. if your were a hot chick we aircooled guys would wave back
