http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/vie...reverse+lights This might help bro...I had no idea there was a speedo mounted switch
I was talkin bout your car too sam luvin your patina man. You takin it to the farm this sunday? I will be there with or with out mine. Hopefully Randy Mcpherson the man that built my car will be there with his bus so I can thank him again and see what he has done to it.
Smile it will get Worse!!
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.
I been driving it a little bit every day, drove it to work a few times (22 miles each way) drove it today, might get to see how she does in the rain. got the stock exhaust on and heat working! Looks better, sounds ok I guess.
Hopefully get some real pics this weekend.
Have a on me...
heres a jack i freshened up, should have got before pics, it was solid rust, did not jack...
