I declare springtime now!!!
Also found another pic from H2O. Looks dumped sitting on the grass.
Soooooooo, I finally got around to properly fixing my clutch cable sleeve bracket, which is also the pedal bracket. I ordered the new bracket from the dealer and after breaking my back lying under the dash for three hours, I finally got it in.
This was the time that I realized the location for my brake light switch was nonexistant on the new bracket.
Apparently there was a year split, and the bracket I needed is no longer made. Of cooooourse! So today I cut the piece I needed off my old bracket and JB welded it onto the new one. And ta da! I have brake lights again...a week later.
Is it summer yet???????
Not sure if this has been done before, but I've custom fitted the dash from an 83 Rabbit to fit in my Cabby. Had to cut off the lower part of the dash which was the ash tray/coin compartment. I also didn't feel like figuring out how to wire the Rabbit headlight switch to my car, so I cut out the appropriate sized hole to fit my headlight switch in. Drilled a couple of holes for my horn and sub switches, and ta da!
Don't worry, the green pedals aren't staying.
So it seems spring is in the air! This weekend is supposed to be beeeeeaaaaaauuuutiful, so the plan is to enjoy St Pattys day with a few of these and a welder!
Good combo, right??
The Laffnstalks makeover begins!

Here's another photo, my summer wheels! Put brand new rubber on them this morning. 155 55 14" NS II's.
nice dash config
glad you decided to go with the cabriolet headlight switch
those rotary rabbit ones suck so bad
and atleast you can get NEW replacements for your cabriolet headlight switch
usually just the dimmer portion of the switch goes bad
easy fix to jumper two pins together and no more dimmer function, stays full bright 100%
for a rotary one however the overhead lamp is controlled by the rotor switch, really annoying
Love the headliner! Hard to do? I was thinking of trying a sturdy "base" liner with zippers/buttons sewn along the sides/front so I's can change it up easily with different fabrics/patterns.
Also, when the poly arm bushings break in, tell us (me) how they ride please.
And that's a cool idea! Never thought of that. My headliner wasn't too hard to do, it's actually a shower curtain believe it or not. I used spray adhesive to stick it up, but it kept falling back down, partly I believe because the roof moves. So I took a needle and thread and just stitched it in place in a few spots so it doesn't droop.
I actually did it because when I replaced my front end the hood latch no longer lined up so I couldn't hold it down.
