    pat got the rear end all dialed. Ready for wheels and tires in the rear.

    some wiring got done in the engine compartment and a fluids change was performed.

    we brainstormed interior layout tonight. Nav, trip meter, fire extinguishers, hydration system, horn, fuel pump switch, door panels, storage, etc. coming along!

    I didn’t say much about catching the car on fire in January while I was welding cage gussets under the dash. 🔥 ☹️

    The welding paper/masking tape caught on fire under the headlight switch wiring. It looked wose than it was….

    ….I was able to replace a pig tail and do some soldering to repair the wiring today. Good to have that fixed.

    Not many options for mounting the Garmin navigation. We mounted it to the dash like Benton did on the silver 1967 porsche from 2019’s race. Easy to see for the driver and co-driver.

    Bunch of wiring today. Modified some stuff to suit our needs. Installed switches and a usb plug in place of a cigarette lighter.

    Pat mounted and plumbed up dual fuel pumps with check valves. Should hide under the foot board.

    We have most of the layout and wiring figured out. Led light strips w/dimmer for cockpit lighting.

    Also added a second hood/truck light housing..which is the same 64+ beetle.

    Pat’s aluminum glove box and cubby work is badass.
