He's like a little tiger, has the best stripes, especially on his belly.

yep, they are. Need to work it out??? Maybe i can wire the motor to run the opposite way. Some are my way, some are yours. Usually its easy to make motors run in both directions.

I was over wiring (wired the whole car) so just left it for now - wanted to hoon for a bit!

You can see my rodeo in the door reflection on the second photo! I'm happy with it but would like to put a chrome strip down the sides and a chrome strip on the side steps, just to get a little more colour. Been fun hooning in the Pobjoy though!

Thought i'd keep any updates to the car on this page, that way i have a good vehicle history and record of everything i've done. Apologies if this bores you.

Bought some new rear end suspension gear from CVD. Has anyone run these before?

Buggy Brad, do you know what type of gas struts they actually use?

The rear end will probably stiffen up a fair bit, so will be interesting to see how it all goes.

i'm also trying to source a narrowed front end sway bar (STILL!!). I think i will get this from vintage.

I haven't really pushed the car round much so it will be hard to compare the difference in handling with the front and rear sway bars.

nice work mick that is one tight bug

the reason ur wipers dont seem right is those are 12volt bug wiper arms

all the big window 6volt 58-67 bugs had wipers that parked on the right hand side and had thin tinny wiper arms with non replaceable rubbers

the 68 on 12volt bugs had heaps heavier arms with replaceable style rubbers that parked on the left

it didnt matter whether the car was RHD or LHD all the bodies were the same

originally yours woulda been like this
