The horn works. The starter works. The brake lights work. The wipers work. The park lights work. The turn signals work...They're working all four lights like they're hazards but they're working. Not having much luck with the hazards (think it's a switch issue) and waiting on a relay for the headlights.

Got the headlight relay just before work so I didn't have time to put it in. Cool

Figured out the problem with the turn signals. It seems the connection @ the speedo with both left and right indicators at the one bulb was causing a bridge between the left and right turn signals. Going to run independent bulbs for the indicators now. cheers

Can't figure the hazards out yet. Seems the switch I had wired for them isn't pulling enuogh juice to trip the relay. Swapped out the switch with a diffrent one and it blew the fuse when I threw it. Evil or Very Mad Luckily the fuse did it's job and the harness is still intact.

I'm going to have to look at the road requirements. I think emergency flashers are a part of it but I could be mistaken. If push comes to shove I'll get the cop to come out an cross my fingers he doesn't ask me to work the flashers.

Anyone have and 8500lbs of lead?

Talked to the DMV today and told the lady I neede to re-register my car. She said bring your proof of insurance and 35 bucks. I told her that it had been altered into a roadster and she said it will be registered as a VW Beetle. I asked her if the police would have a problem with that and she said "I can't speak for the officer." Who am I to argue with an employee of the state?

Most cops know. And besides, the VW pan is widely used and registered for a ton of kit cars.

OK I wasn't going to post any pictures until it was "done" but I had to get some for the insurance people and now I can't resist. Please ignore the filthy garage.

Looks great Glenn! Can't wait to see it. Are you getting a custom tag for this one?

Yes I'm getting a custom tag. No I haven't driven it. The electric is functioning perfect except the hazard lights, which I can't figure out. The car runs but there is more tuning to do and I'm going to need to quiet it down somehow. Maybe it's the cam but it's LOUD. affraid So loud that dad and I couldn't scream to each other when it was spooled up to 3000rpm. I need some baffles or I'm going to get a ticket before I turn out of my driveway.

It LIVES! Runs, idles, stops, has at least 2 gears (1st & rev), muffled so its just obnoxious and not insane, and feels like it has power to spare. I may have created a monster. Now all it needs is tags and a bath before the final unveiling. How am I going to make it to the end of tomorrow without making a circuit aroud the block?
