Finally!

I got the bus over to Dave Ellis on Monday and he got the electrical NAILED!  He soldered the ground in the back and ran a new wire.  He also adjusted the valves, which #2 AND #4 were sticking, adj the clutch, and brakes.  He also gave me a laundry list of things that need to be resolved:  Rear wheel cylinder is leaking, Need new axle boots and fill the RGB, Trans fluid, tightened the fan belt before vacation.  I need the king pins on the passenger side and oil pressure switch. RGB and Sterring box maintenance  Here is a pict out side his garage with a Ghia that matches the bus . . .  .  Too bad the camera on my phone blows 😦

Electrical Problems Back / Bug In

It started with an intermittent right tail light, now things are back to where they were originally.  I think Ill take Kermit to this guy in Evanston to get this straightened out once and for all.  I have a suspicion that it may be the light switch.  We’ll see.  I also orderd a wheel and jack for a spare for our upcoming trips in August.  Last weekend I went to the Bug-In at Fox Valley VW it seemed like it took for ever to get out there, but it was fun.  I may enter Kermit next time, or maybe even Gonzo.  Either one would have fared as good as any other. I have found this week I have become hooked on Karman Ghia’s.  Maybe some day.  They are still affordable. I saw this one at the Bug-In.  Not really a Beatles fan, but I find this one unique.
