Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
It looks like I will be able to make it. . I will probably be down there with my daughter. I look forward to checking it all out.

I will not be in the VW. I just started the wiring tonight. It may be done, but not legal.:hmm:
:)

Rawbdad April 11th, 2011 08:56 PM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
Legal? What isn't legal anymore?

:wacko:

Palepainter April 12th, 2011 06:02 PM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
Just curious how many of you actually wire it back up to stock configuration, or do you use the dune buggy schematics out there? I am not running 4 way flashers. I will have a flare kit. :)

tequilla April 13th, 2011 12:03 AM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
Not saying I wired mine the right way......... :funny: Since I took out most of the stock switches and the spedo I wired up some toggle switches and push button switches and 4 indicator lights. Used a trailer converter to run single tail lights as brake and turn signals, lost the windshield wipers since the motor didn't work and it's a fair weather car only and the hazzard flasher didn't work with the trailer converter so........... When I was all done and the shit that I wanted to work was working I disconnected the battery and started cutting and or removing any wires not in use. It worked for me :grin:

Palepainter April 13th, 2011 05:31 AM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
Hey Tequilla, tell me more about your trailer converter.

Palepainter April 13th, 2011 06:01 AM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
Don't worry Tequilla, I found a bunch of old threads in the search. Some that I had bookmarked earlier. I will find one today. Autozone says special order. I will try a trailer place locally. Thanks.

I got my trailer converter at wal-mart for about $18... course, I also got the one in a million that had a bad diode :hmm:

Palepainter April 13th, 2011 08:49 AM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
I found a Hopkins Taillight converter at Autozone. Part number 48845. 14 dollars. Smaller than I expected. Do you still need to run flashers with these units? Oh, by the way. They are out of blinker fluid at Autozone. :)

tequilla April 13th, 2011 10:42 AM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
With the trailer connector my rear hazard lights didn't flash and I believe if I remember correctly the turn indicator (Dash) light didn't work right either. My solution was to ditch the hazard light switch and mount dual turn indicator (Dash) lights. One for left and one for right.

Palepainter April 13th, 2011 08:25 PM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
Got the headlights, hi lo switch hooked up. I also got the starter turning over the motor. Weeeee. A note to anyone who has painted their car and misc parts, make sure you get a good ground on your lights and stuff. I had to go back in and take a round file to a lot of brackets in order to get a good ground.

Palepainter April 16th, 2011 07:43 PM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
Got the wiring done tonight. I have to clean it up and tie it down, but it is all working except for the oil pressure and the gen light. I have to figure that out yet. Baffled.

I got the exhaust mounted, still waiting for the stinger. I also started to fill up the braking system. Tomorrow, bleed and adjust. I will be starting it for the first time tomorrow. I hope I can sleep. :)

I met Rawb down at Painters Grinding today. They had a little BBQ. There were two Vrods there. One was a pick up that was stretch to the bejesus. But no camera, sorry. Rawb's car will be cool when it is all wrapped up. The wheels are montstrous.

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
I managed to get it running today, it fired right up after getting the fuel system primed with the coil disconnected and letting it turn over for a while. It needs a little bit of a tune up. I will do that this week. The big things left are bleeding and adjusting the brakes. A buddy was suppose to come over this afternoon and help with it. No sign yet. Here are some shots cleaned up outside today.

Waiting on stinger and windshield yet.

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
HAHAHA. No armour all for you. (in my best soup nazi voice.)

Took it for a ride today. It would appear that I will be replacing the master cylinder. Ugh... Brakes work, but not great. The linkage still hits the hood. I will need deck lid stand off I think. The family had a blast in it. :)

cybernotchback April 17th, 2011 07:18 PM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
Hey Pale,

Check the adjustment of the brake shoes, you may have to adjust them a few times before they bed in. Loose shoes will give a longer pedal stroke before making contact. Just a thought, and easy and cheap to fix.

Palepainter April 17th, 2011 07:24 PM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
Thanks! I have them adjusted out already unfortunately. I see a leak coming out of the reservoir supply line. But it isn't under pressure there. It was the one that came with the car. It should be an easy replace anyways.

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
Glad you guys enjoyed the vid. HEHEHE. I changed out the master cylinder today and rebled the brakes. Now I can stop. Weeeee. I also cut down the roll cage and gave it a preliminary fit. I marked the holes in the floors. I will take it down and paint it this weekend.

I have a pair of 10 in woofers and 6 in 3ways speakers coming in the next week from a buddy who owns a stereo shop. Working out a little barter with him. I am looking for the right AM /FM Ipod dock for the stereo system. I am thinking a 100 watt amp in the back.

Oh ya..I found a guy to cut my windshield here locally for 50.

Palepainter April 28th, 2011 06:11 PM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
This past week, it has been going down the punch list and finishing up details in the interior. I got the roll cage in and painted with Raptor Liner. Finished up the seat belts and the back floor boards. I also go the stinger finally. It is running pretty good, but I am taking it to a local VW shop next week for some carb sync work.

The glass windshield is in and and we are ready to rock. Just a few more items to complete including the stereo system. Few pics from the past week.

Thanks Chris, It sounds so much better now. There was an exhaust leak and the mixture screws needed a bit of work at the time of the video. I am going to put a muffler insert into the stinger to keep things down a bit. But it is throaty.

Palepainter April 30th, 2011 01:20 PM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
This week I got a lot of little shit done. You know, the things you think are so small, but they add up at the end. Fixed a few things that have come to attention as I have made some small trips through the neighborhood.

I finished up the roof rack this week and got it mounted up until the ragtop canvas gets here this week. I will be getting the tags at the beginning of the week. Then I will put some miles on it and work out the kinks before it's first show at "The Greens"

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
I totaled up the invoices this afternoon. To complete the build from start to finish with the original purchase of the car came to 3127.00 USD. I feel really good about that. Most importantly, the wife does. I do not think I will have to twist her arm to start the next one in the fall. She has asked for the keys a few times so she could drop my daughter off at a few of her friend's houses this past week. Too cool to see them enjoy it. Perhaps, better than myself.

This has been an enjoyable adventure in retrospect. The hours into it are a blur at this point in time. I am more proud of the persistence it took to stay on it and finish it, than the final product itself. There really is nothing more here than just doing it, even if I haven't done it before. If I could pass along any advice to those in process, it would be to suggest to do what ever you can. Do not give yourself excuses or reasons not to do a part or process. If you are waiting for a part and feel like it is holding you back, go do something else. Those little widgets of accomplishment add up. That is what it took for me, and a few beer along the way.
Thank you Old Chub.

I will. I am actually going to camp the night before and my club parks the cars for VWOTC and VWEC. I will be parked with the club and if you would like I can hold a spot for ya. We usually have a huge grassy area, alot of great people in the crew, VERY family. I will have two cars there, the wife and three kids. We BBQ during the show and have a huge tent set up for shade, if not several.

I will post the Zombie Chicks pic as soon as I take them.

I got the rag top assembled over the weekend and also built a speaker cabinet for the back. I will post a few pics later.

Today I got the tags on it. I put about 30 miles on it this afternoon. The front end is a bit stiff yet, but is loosening up. Ran great. Thumbs up all over the place. HEHEHE.

The Zombies were scattering.:chillin:

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
A few pics with the top in and the sound system going in. I added a few bits of storage on the back of the seats and such. I also add a fire extinguisher to the roll cage. Little stuff that has been fun to mess with.

I am going to raise the front end an inch or two to get better travel in the suspension.

I am performing the tie rod end flip at the end of the week. It should improve the handling quite a bit. I have been running it with out shocks all week. It is pretty smooth. I got the toe in set better today. That grooved hightway stuff was throwing me all over. Hopefully getting it dialed in by the weekend show.

Palepainter May 18th, 2011 05:22 PM

Re: My concept for the general Vee
 
It should level out the tie rods quite a bit. I do not have spindles. I am running an adjusted beam. By flipping the outer tie rod ends, it is my understanding that it will keep the wheels straighter when the suspension is under compression.

Thanks Boes,

HEhehe. I have been driving it almost every day here in Nor CO. I have only been caught in the rain one time. Talk about rooster tails coming off of the tires.

We have been hitting a bunch of hot rod shows with it. I have collected 4 best of class trophies so far. Pissing off a bunch of high dollar build hot rod owners. :) The hot rod community has been quite amused by the little VW. I do not think I will be taking it to the Bug In at Bandimere. They want to much money for every thing there.

I haven't had any real issues. Knocking on wood. I have yet to flip the tie rod ends yet. Maybe this weekend.

haha, I first started driving mine with no front fenders in the middle of a bad rainy season in San Diego.. went through a couple of deep puddles while turning and learned REALLY fast that if I'm turning when I go through a puddle, I'm COMPLETELY blind for about 2 seconds due to the waterfall of water the obscures my windshield..

Thanks Soulrider. My car is also a 66, or at least started as. :) I appreciate it. Nothing but time my friend.

Gonna miss you out there on Sunday Mike but hey without you there and the progress since the green, I may actually get noticed, lol.

Do you know about Saturday down here in the springs? We have buses at the brewery, free show and cruise between to breweries and through garden of the gods. Should bring Zombie Killer down

To complete the build from start to finish with the original purchase of the car came to 3127.00 USD.:panic:

That is an amazingly low cost for the way this thing turned out! Great job! Im already in almost double that for my 51 that isnt even on the road yet:finger::finger::finger:

Rob,
I would enjoy the ride there through the foothills, but I am a vendor at Sunday's Colorodan Show in Longmont. They gave me a spot to set up and have my trailer next to the Zombie Killer VW and Snowmobile. :) Thanks for the offer. Soon though.

Ratlook, Ya, just time and some thriftiness bro. They do not have to be expensive to be finished.
