Oh, and while I'm on the site, I thought I would post a pic from the last Y U Buggin show.

Well I picked the car up today, and it drove perfectly all the way home. The motor looks really different with the single carb now. I'll post a pic of the motor later this evening.

Oh, so that was you? Well, I was the one in the passenger seat while I let my dad drive it home today. Thanks.

BTW you have a really nice looking bus too. Very nice.

And that was pretty funny that you mentioned that because as we passed by you, I thought to myself "I wonder if that guy is a member on this site?" Laughing

Especially the VW World. This site represents a very very small number of VW enthusiast around Ga. I've seen VWs that I had never seen before here in my community. They never wave or pay me any attention. For those folks it's just another car that they owned in their life time.

I didn't have time to take any pics of the motor yesterday, but I have to make a few minor adjustments and straighten up the wiring a bit this evening. So I'll try and get a few pics up later tomorrow.

Well, today I drove it to griffin and back. Ran into the traffic of Christmas shopping. Then, a Ford pulled out in front of me at the interesction in front of Walmart. Luckily, my brakes and horn work great.

Yeah, I hear ya. That is just how I got it back from the shop. I'll definitely be fixing that.

I haven't had much time for the car lately due to final exams, but I was able to put some decals on my windows.



You know the saying, "if it's got stickers, it must be fast." Laughing

I also found this pic from pit road at Y U Buggin this year.

If you look, you can see me trying to remedy a case of vapor lock.

My plan for tommorrow is to try and wake up early and straighten out the wiring and do some final adjustments of the idle.

Ok, so I was finally able to get the wiring straightened out and I got rid of one of the fuel filters and put clamps on the other one. The engine runs really great now that I got the idle adjusted a bit.

The bad thing was by the time I was done it was too late to take a pic. Maybe I can get a pic out tommorow. As long as the school doesn't hit me with more work again, that is. Rolling Eyes
