      a few questions. (1972 super)

      1) how hard is it to remove a wiring harness for paint, and put it back in?

      2) how hard is it to fit custom switches and guages? i'm planning on shaving my dash like the picture below but i feel like putting in switches and gauges would be a pain in the arce.

      3)you know that ... thing that vw but in the cars in 72 that plugs into a machine... obviously i dont need that.. the machines probably dont exist anymore.. how can i get rid of it if i removed my wiring harness? i was just thinking cutting off the box and covering it with liquid electrical tape... nobody would see the wiring if i tucked it in and closed off the hole



      if you haddent noticed i HATE wiring more than anything in the car kingdom... i really dont want to even touch it but i have to. where do i even start?



      basically that, but i want the switches on the dash... perhaps where the ashtray should be...

      huhh... what.

      I think he should just pull it all out , after first lableing all his wires in several places to help with reconnecting them when he is don painting. As far as the dash I belive they make fiberglass and aluminum cover panles to smooth the dash then he can just locate where he would like his switches and mount them and hook them up. But my suggestion would be he find a knowledgeable shop near him and drop it off and pay to have it done right.

      He best ask his girlfriend first though.....

      ...."I'm planning..."

      put an older harness in it if it bothers you to cut and wire out wiring...smoothing the dash and putting new switches in ain't a science..just follow the direction...

      thing is you gotta start digging into that thing before you worry about the wiring since you can save that til the end.

      i know i need to get it running first, i just have ten million things running through my head at once. it pretty much causes a headache when i dont plan things out ahead of time.


      but i just sat down and thought about it, i figuired it out. im going to remove the harness, have the dash shaved and done up, then make all the holes for switches and guages, and once its back together then wire them up. i'll be back on the subject when the time comes around.

      oh, and schell, i called some vw shop closer to me about a head and they want too much for it... some day i will make my way down there to get that thing...actually, we're picking up a jeep in Charleston in the next few days... maybe we could take a detour. i'll see about that.

      yeah yeah....
      dude for $40 bucks for a head that's good ,why would you call someone else?...i can only tell you sooooooo many times...I have everything that car needs and guys who have what i don't...I've done more resto's and BS, than any other vw shop around and thats a fact.

      ...your gonna find out quick...how if driving or getting to the place where you need s--t is gonna hinder your project...it will never get done.

      see... these cars you MUST search,locate and drive for everything...sometimes states away!!!

      about 20 miles outside of pittsburgh. Im really looking for the belt line trim. cip1, 13pc kit with clips they want $320 +shipping, which is totally rediculous. I have a few pieces still on it, like the tiny 1" pieces and the rear door piece but thats about it. Theres a few older fellas in my area with parts busses, but those ol farts are all vacationing in florida and wont be back until the end of the month. Im trying to have this thing done by then.

      Also, the PO removed the rear bumper for some reason and left it in new mexico. he is currently there on business and said he would ship it back to me and split the cost of shipping. So, who knows if that will really happen, supposed to hear from him today.

      Well, as of right now, I need a few misc parts:

      -Original seat brackets/bolts that bolt to the floor
      -belt line trim
      -rear bumper

      Everything else is pretty much there, just filthy. I swear the PO never cleaned this thing, while bringing the dash back to shine the cleaning stuff i was using was just making mud with all the dirt and filth packed in. Ill get pics of that soon too. All the vinyl really needs pressure steamed and it would look perfect, but it still looks good now after a fresh cleaning.

      Shell, if you have any of these parts would you be willing to ship em?

      I got the front emblem, a complete full good condition original interior, full set of seat belts and bolts front and rear, a bag full of misc interior trim pieces, door panels, fresh air ducts, mint black rubber front floor mat, a new spare......all for $100 last weekend.....I'll hold out!

      hey schell, i was just looking over this head and it's cracked all the way down through the spark plug hole, into a valve. it also looks like someone tried to repair it and it melted. do you happen to have any less cracked ones? we could probbably meet up again if you go to that diamond hill show in a few weeks

      I was gonna blast my rims but loaned out the sand blaster and haven't seen it since ..Now it's have someone pull the tires off, then drop them off to get blasted, paint or powder the wheels, back to the tire shop...pain in the bag.

      Crazy how many tools I've loaned out to never see again, and usually I never remember who I loaned them to...Hand tools, sand blaster, nail guns, saws, etc....Bastards!
