Vintage Washington license plate frame & Evergreen State plate
EVfun
This is a cool old license plate from from Marable Motors, a dealership that changed hands to become Hanson Inc about 1963. The special Evergreen State plate below is in the old shape format so it won't fit that frame, but I will find a way to put it on the front of my VW.

Good Axle Boot
EVfun
This is an old boot, but quality. It looks like this after around 20 years in a winter garaged beach buggy. The replacement for the other side failed before this older boot. It has gotten to the point where I don't replace old parts in pairs anymore because the quality of so many new parts are suspect.

Bad axle boot
EVfun
The boot was new when I installed it. I got it with some parts on a swap so it may have been old, but never installed. After a couple years installed, sitting in the garage as I build the buggy, it is close to failure.

This is a the one year only nose cone used on 1960 Beetles. Notice that the shift rod and mount are higher compared to earlier split case transaxles.

Bus Air Filter Elbow

A K&N RG-1003RD-L air filter installed onto a 40 horse Bus air filter elbow. An Outerwears 20-1570 filter cover, in purple, completes the intake. The support bracket off the coil is custom made from aluminum as the fan shroud is aftermarket and the coil is not in exactly the stock location.

Bus Air Filter Elbow

A K&N air filter installed onto a 40 horse Bus air filter elbow. My buggy body had little room above the carb and fan shroud, limiting my choices. The K&N RG-1003RD-L filter fits without modification on the early Bus carburetor inlet pipe.

nose cone change
EVfun
This shows the how VW moved the shift rod up on the Bug transaxle starting in 1960. This same change was not made on the Bus. This is why the Bus nosecone allows a tunnel transaxle to bolt into 1959 and older Bugs and the engine fit correctly.

electric motor to VW transaxle

This is the Prestolite MTC motor I ran in the electric beach buggy from 1999 to 2017. The splined coupler is made from a Bus input shaft to main shaft coupler. It is held to the motor with a Ruland shaft coupler. Ran flawlessly for the whole time.

Bus wheel on a Bug

Bus wheel on a Bug
EVfun
Installing a 14 inch Bus wheel on the front of a Bug limits steering. Roughly you go from the stock 2.6 steering wheel turns lock to lock down to about 2 turns lock to lock. It will add around 10 feet to a U-turn and put the Bug up there with double cab pickup trucks for the steering radius. It won't be quite as bad in a short wheelbase beach buggy.

This shows the difference between the early '58-'64 drums and the '66-'67 rear drums. Both are used with 30mm wide rear brakes. The later drums do not fit the oil slinger and are wider, increase rear track width 6mm per side.

This circuit was originally for my beach buggy, to combine brake lights and turn signals in the rear AND combine parking lights and turn signals up front. With modifications it can be used to add those functions to a car with working semaphores.

Wiper over-centers and locks up. The wiper shafts have been recently replaced with Wolfsburg West parts. It is almost as if the connecting arm is not quite long enough, allowing it to pivot over-center at the bottom of travel and then lock up when the right wiper tries to go down instead of up.

There are a few more spots of light contact that I expected. The opening can be a bit small pretty much anywhere around the perimeter. The engine has been in, closer each time. This last time it went in and I could run the bolts down with my fingers, but there was some very slight contact as I turned the crank 1 full revolution. So, the install should be for real now.
