Projects - VWs only / The 66

Projects - VWs only / The Project Begins!
So i have finally begun the tear down of the chop top. Today i pulled the motor so i can put it in the 66 i just bought. Had the motor pulled in 30 mins but i know i can do it faster. Im starting to get real good at pulling and installing motors.  The next step is to get the body of the pan so i can begin working on reinforcing the body and pan for the 2232 i plan on putting in it. I also need to remove the tranny next so i can put it in the black bug and have reverse :2up: I plan on spending the next couple years working on this making it perfect. So this is just the beginning of a very very long journey!

Calendar of Events / Rocking around the block!
So this saturday there is a big car show out in downtown gresham.  Its gonna be a really good time 300+ cars and yes there is a volkswagen class! Show starts at 7 till about 3 or 4 and then there is a cruise around downtown. My chop top will be there and i will be volunteering there also since all the proceeds go to my schools automotive program and scholarships for the students in my program (Mt hood Community College)  So come check it out i would love to see some volksters roll through plus its gonna be a great time. its 20 dollars to show your car and there are tons of classes for all kinds of cars. There will be plenty of old hot rods! It would make my day to see all the volksters possible roll up in a line of 20 or so vdubs!!
So i am doing some work on this guys 73 super and the next thing needed to be done is fixing the breaks. He has put all new breaks drums and master cylinder on  the car but when i hit the breaks it pulls hard to the right and after about 150 miles the front breaks lock up.  What do you think could be causing this? Re bleed the breaks or adjust them? Those are my only two guesses anything else that could cause that?

Tech Help Cars / Tie rods
I just got the infamous super beetle "shimmy" at 40 mph and then when i speed up to 45 it goes away. i know all my tie rod ends are shot and i was wondering how big of a task it is to replace them and how much should i expect to spend on parts.
Tech Help Cars / Major help needed with alternator light
So after putting in a new motor into my super beetle my gen light was staying on after the car was running so i got to looking at the wiring to the light and the wire to the ignition was not plugged in so i plugged it in but now the light is off when the car is running but is stuck on when i turn the car off. The wiring in this car is a mess and i am running out of ideas to fix it so if you have any suggestions please let me know
Introductions / Vdub Enthusiast
My name is trevor price and i am 18 years old.
i got my first 74 super beetle at 16 and fell in love,
spent two years working on it and loved that car.
i eventually traded it for a 72 Karmann ghia but got in a accident a few months later
I currently have the ghia and a 73 super beetle.
The beetle is my newest project and i am planing on taking the ghia motor and
putting it into the bug.
I have taught my self as i go and just learn from every problem i run into
I love to get suggestions, new ideas and enjoying learning new things
Classic VW's are my life and i plan on pursuing a career in the automotive industry

the picture is of my old 74 i bougt it for 750 and it was green and after two years of work this was the final product
