At the bottom right corner of the windshield I spotted wires and something encased in small vinyl pouch.
As you can barely see, there is a very thin wire there, and it runs the perimeter of the windshield. I think it's a thermal wire, perhaps to heat the edges of the glass to help prevent moisture build up? Anyone see this before?
Window pin switches are weird. Yeah, maybe a past alarm system or something. The headlight bracket.. doesn't look VW, but then you never know. Is there a stamp anywhere on it? Canopy seals.. yes, were always screwed in place. Thickness of the rubber made that possible. Back in the day, adhesives weren't as good as they are today. Wire.. yep, probably an antenna wire. The decal.. who knows? Maybe the first owner didn't want it on the rear like all the others?
Great to see your text Nic!Well, to say "it's been a minute" is drastically understated. I've started poking at the car again, I still have the Orange car in the back yard. Nothing major to report just more electrical work being done. Wired dome lights into the canopy and ran wires through the canopy empty spaces down to the corners. That only took an hour #facepalm. So, hoping to do more work and share more as well. Glad to see everyone here still working away and nice to see Greg/Unofun pop in too. Hi Greg!
p.s. - I like the new site and format, though it took me a few minutes to find my build thread here.
