I found my problem…. I read it on the internet!!!! 😎
“There is further evidence that this loss of ambition has more to do with our natural life patterns than with anything having to do with an aversion to work itself. Research consistently shows that people peak in happiness at ages 18 and 82, and hit a nadir of unhappiness at age 46 (or what is commonly known as the mid-life crisis).”DarioParticipantApril 8, 2019 at 3:57 pmPost count: 500
I have to watch when you install tachometer on this Franz, I’m wanting to wire one in the baja.PeteParticipantMay 16, 2019 at 9:07 amPost count: 860
Juan….since you’re doing a stock resto I thought I’d share in case you had any interest. This is a pretty slick battery box:Juan 59 DDWTParticipantMay 16, 2019 at 1:26 pmPost count: 297
Thanks Pete for the information,.. I`d like to buy 3 of them, you know the Optima Battery works alot of better and not risk of leakingPeteParticipantMay 16, 2019 at 2:04 pmPost count: 860
Agreed on the Optima; I have moved mine and it’s laying flat under my rear seat. I’m going to get one of these boxes in case there’s ever a desire to return it to the stock location.
I see a Samba member LookVW posted that they were interested in 3….is that you? If not I can add yours to mine so the person making them has an accurate count for figuring his pricing on them.volksaddictParticipantMay 16, 2019 at 8:28 pmPost count: 573

I think I have Douglas interested in hanging a headliner in your car… Cause I want to get to putting the body on the pan… and I know he would rather stand up than sit on the pan and do the headliner… 😎
Gonna paint some bumpers for Mike.. then…. 😎
Yup… time to get my head into this ghia… some wiring…. some gauges.. some switches…John JonesKeymasterJune 12, 2019 at 3:15 pmPost count: 6326
Got it uncovered and pushed out in the sun.. Got all them parts out from under it… It’s time for me to wrap my head around working on this rig..
Doug brought some Jute over for the headliner insulation… I am gonna dig out headliner bows for him and start pulling that wiring harness in that new tube we had to run front to back… I do recalll Juan wanting a tach wire… I will see if I can snake one in there with the harness…. 😎
Knowing Juan, I bet all his gauges are already redone.. soon to see.. 😎AndymParticipantJune 12, 2019 at 5:25 pmPost count: 934

I couldn’t find any headliner bows in your stuff… So I pulled some out of one of mine.. There are 3 different lengths of bow, and 4 bows..
I have everything ready forDoug to do a headliner…. 😎 I better get a dome light wire pulled up there…. 😎Scott SainParticipantJune 13, 2019 at 8:37 amPost count: 250
I need to do a Ghia headliner too. Can I bring mine out and let him do a 2 for 1 special? I am so not looking forward to pulling all the glass and seals out!Juan 59 DDWTParticipantJune 13, 2019 at 9:32 amPost count: 297

John,.. The original headliner Bows were packed in a carton tube or long case (wraped with the original headliner), must be around the area where you have the rear seat or seat frames. 🧐
Have a Good Day everyone!John JonesKeymasterJune 14, 2019 at 12:00 pmPost count: 6326
Sweet… I’ll find em.. I bet they are on the clean shop loft…
