Front Bumper and Running Boards

I got the front bumper installed. She looks like a Beetle again.

I also had time to get the running boards. They are Wolfsburg West as well. They are one of the only places that you can find colored running boards, well, other colors, not only black.

Rear Bumper Installed

I got the rear bumper installed today. It went on pretty easily. It is a Wolfsburg West bumper, so it is made very well. I did not, however get the back-up installed. I need to get them rewired, after the engine fire in 1991, the wired that ran through the engine compartment got a little burnt.

Dash Warning Light

Again, It is always the little victories. I got my fuses today, so I was able to power the entire system, with a low voltage battery from a Power Wheels. There is just something cool to see those two light all lit up.

Steering Wheel Installed

The new steering wheel is installed. It looks great! I hooked up the horn wire, and powered the system. She once again has a voice.

I also installed all the bumper brackets.

Flasher Relay

Well, it appears that after 40+ years, my flasher relay "black box" no longer operates. I have ordered a replacement unit. I think I will tackle the headliner next
