Pedal Re-Location Box
MrGoodtunes
Shorten'd pedal box and brake pushrod so as to accomodate dual circuit master cylinder while moving pedal cluster as far forward as possible. Bolted box to 2" channel under cut-off Napolean's hat, and used turnbuckle to keep box from flexing under hard braking.

Diagnosing Starting Problem

Early during a 3,000 mile trip from South Florida to Northern Michigan, used a parking lot to check battery and starter. They check'd out OK. Problem was start position of ignition switch.

Inside of Ignition Switch
MrGoodtunes
After un-crimping (with Dremel) and removing a cir-clip & retaining washer, here's what's inside this 1967 Beatle ignition switch, which is only an off-on-start type with no steering column lock.

Spray around coil top, distributor cap, spark plug wires, even the rotor and underside of cap, any where you may have a loss of spark problem. Doesn't last forever, but will get you home.

Locking Lid Latch
MrGoodtunes
The 3-bolt Beatle engine lid latch has a bigger handle and is a bit too massive for my light weight fiberglass buggy engine lid. So I used a 1-bolt hatch latch from a VW bus, which uses a completely different key (VB type) from my ignition key (K type). So I swap'd key barrels.

Ignition Switch
MrGoodtunes
After several aftermarket switches fail'd (including one very expensive marine type with a nice accessory position), I ended up going with a stock 1967 Beatle ignition. No failures for over 3 decades; and when if finally did fail, the fix was fairly easy.
