If you want a larger taillight lens,
take a look at the '56 Chevy lenses.

Hey I just logged on and wanted to express my thanks for nominating me for the December CBOTM. It's very kind and flattering to have the Volkster recognized.

There are some amazing projects going on here and I find Volksrods.com and all the members to be very inspiring and motivating.
Thank you again and Happy Holidays to all.
Mark

Congrats on getting the CBOTM award again! The couple is a true work of art and an inspiration to us all! Can't wait to see it finished.

Thanks guys. Mucho thanks Steve! My goal is to have it ready for the end of May 2011 for the Woodburn Bug-in.

By the way Al Low Ha, the Stoll coupe and the Bug truck are in Oahu. The buyer sold the truck to his neighbor who fell in love with it the day he brought it home from the shipping port. I keep in touch with him pretty regularly as he has already expressed an interest in the Volkster.

I don't think I'm worthy of CBOTY but thank you.

Will get some work done tomorrow and post an update afterwards.

Congrats Mark!!! I have the pleasure of working on my own project Hellbound with the former CBOM, Bugdust and everytime I spend a few hours in his garage I learn something. Just read your post about selling the Stoll and the truck and was wondering if you have kept one of your builds for your own as opposed to selling it?

Saw this one coming - well deserved. This thing is just amazing, although I feel a little guilty because you said you took some inspiration from some of my photoshop concepts - got you into a lot of work, there. Sorry about that. Neat to see it coming to life.


Oh, and you make me look like such a hack!


No really, this is inspiring to watch.

Thanks guys. Zim, I've never kept a project for myself. I enjoy building them.

And per your request, I got some work done today.

The Vert top header bow section at the windshield. One side latch is done. SNUG!

I'll update my build thread here in a little.

This has to be the most involved project so far. So many mods and areas to address.

Been working on everything but what I need to work on, like the structural stuff but I enjoy the cosmetic more. Received a PM from Daddy o's67 suggesting a '69 and later speedo, which is exactly what I need to bundle my speedo and gas gauge in one cluster. I still need to find a place to mount the airride gauge and switches. Sure I could simply mount it back under the dash as it was, but I think that would be boring and look like an after thought.


Any ideas?
Inside the glove box perhaps?
Fab up something from the tunnel up to the underside of the dash? A Pod type thing like this?

Ideas?

I cannot wait now for the bug run to meet up with you at the rest stop again.

Thanks Crack Monkey. The glove box might be where the airride stuff goes along with the radio.

Catbox, I'll see you there if all goes as planned. Worst case, I trailer it down.

QUESTION:
Will a '68 and up gas tank sending unit fit in a '67 bug tank?

Also:
If I use speedo from say....a 1978/79 Convertible (kind of cool), will it require an electric sending unit correct?

The newer speedos do not have the mechanical cable operation correct? (never had anything newer than a '67 so I don't know.

If I'm not wrong, the newer speedos have the electrical fuel gauge. So you'll need the electrical sending unit.


I've been using a 65 sending unit and gauge on a 83 gas tank, the sending unit bolted right in.

But that is an east coast thing.

On the west coast we are more upscale and go to the bus station....

On the way to the bug run two groups meet up at a rest stop just after the two major freeways intersect so we can all roll togther.

We are lucky enough to have this guy

(that is me in the white shirt and blue hat next to my car)

and this guy

(green Volksrods shirt = MarkH. Ignore nasty bum looking guy.)
In the same area.

Good to hear the sending unit will work...anyone have a speedo and a sending unit in good working order for sale? PM me if you do.

That Ghia was nice and one fast motor scooter. It was impressive to hear the turbo on that thing blowing down the freeway!

How about if you got the glove box door from a right hand drive,
and put the air ride controls in there.

That is a great idea, make your dash symmetrical.
