I have had this steering wheel since about high school & never ever used it in any cars.
But may finally use it in my Buggy?

Iíve decided, Iím gonna keep these wheels & tires for my buggy after priceing new replacement tires for the rear on what on there now.

For $110.00 I can get adapters to run these with much cheaper tires than a set of 2 new 33x14.50x15ís.






Being they do look nice & I do have a complete matching set.

This Buggy is proving to be a puzzle without knowing what parts were gathered for the build?

Seems the standard VW bug is a cable operation & mine has been converted to Hydraulic & the slave was leaking & so I wen ahead & ordered this kit to replace the current parts that are an exact match.

for the simplest replacement.

keep a notebook of what parts are what for later replacement. A new owner and a forgetful current owner will appreciate it later.

I have that on all my builds...unless it is built using factory parts...then there is no need for it. Custom builds almost require it and require keeping up to date also.

Agreed!
& I'm really good at keeping receipts for everything on my projects.

I'll for sure keeping everything I figure out on this one.

Like I'm told my rear disc brakes must be after market being these older bugs never came with rear disc & I was told by a buggy friend that these are big disc.
