What an HONOR. Barry Burly Burlile (36hplandspeedracer) stopped by to visit us during his "bucket list" l-o-n-g road trip. I made him pose in front of the fenderless for a samba pic. I think he travels to Charleston SC , Wilmington, OH ECTA, and then Canada next.

Did they actually run good? Almost every V8 VW I have seen are slugs. About as quick as a bug with a 1641 and kadrons. They just do good burnouts.

Some general advice.
Ya know - I finally got the Bug hearse project back to my shop and figured - cool - about a week of fitting, painting and installing the rest of the sheet metal around the rear inner fenders and engine. Then off to the wood shop for some real fun to fab the rear box.

Then I spent some time looking and thinking. Decided to do a dual battery set up for a couple reasons. And then it really came to me. This is the best time to totally wire the entire ass end of the car - Even though the cab will be removed for final body and point, I can still do the rear while I have all the room to work. I mean - all I have is to run the big hot lead to the front, 4 tail light wires, ignition and idiot light wires, etc. So might as well do it now.

The point is that its not a bad idea to take a day or so to really think things through before just charging ahead.
