First thought was that I want to make connections to my former bug, "Wink."
When I got the new one, the bud vase was missing, and I thought - was pretty sure that - I still have Wink's. I do! That was the first mod - added some fabric gerber daisies that my wife, Suzan, had. They will do for starters.
A few other thoughts:
The drivers side heated seat doesn't work - I investigated and found a green plastic connector that is not connected to it's mate - but I couldn't see the mate. Not an easy place to stick your head to see what you're doing. I want toasty buns!
There is no "cold engine light" - I read the owners manual and see that there can be a red temp warning light for overheating or low coolant level but no indication for when the engine is cold or when it is warmed up. Miss my temp, and other gauges.
I was so psyched when I found that I still have 2 Su-47 Berkut vinyl decals. For now they are the only graphics this car will have. I have plans for another airplane imitation but I will have to take things slow - I don't have the kind of disposable income I did when I was teaching and tutoring after school.
Yesterday, I saw my 2002 GLX at a car wash in town, so I pulled in to speak to the new owner. Told him how to turn on the fogs (every time I saw it driving, the fogs were not on), that the steering wheel spokes and pedals are from a limited edition Turbo S, not stock, and that the black door pulls are from one of our favorite New Beetles, your Wink. He was happy to hear about all of the fun things, and said it's a blast to drive. He was using the vacuum on the floor, and I was glad she's being taken care of.
Have fun with your new-to-you New Beetle. I'm glad you're back!
I managed to "fix" the drivers side heated seat - It was just disconnected, for some reason, and I was able to clip it up and the heater works just fine - even seems to have each different setting unlike "Wink's" that was 5=scorching and 0-4 basically off.
I'm painting my interior headliner/pillar trim pieces. Can someone please tell me how to get this piece (the upper ceiling grab handle, b-pillar hand strap?? off. I got the A-pillar pieces off and painted already but I'm not sure how to remove the rest - all input/advice appreciated.
